About the Author
Jonathan Valvano has been teaching microcontrollers and embedded systems at the University of Texas at Austin for 35 years. He has written eight college textbooks. His textbooks on have been widely used around the world, with a total sales of over 20,000 books. He earned his BS and MS from MIT in 1977 in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In 1981, he received his PhD from Harvard-MIT in the field of biomedical engineering. He has over 100 journal papers, 9 book chapters and 10 patents in the medical device research area. He is a cofounder of a successful medical device company, specializing in miniature and low-power cardiac measurements. The reason he has received numerous teaching awards at the University of Texas is because he and his students share a common interest at the very core of the education process: the students' own success. Together with Professor Yerraballi he has produced two widely successful MOOCs on edX. "It is difficult to find a professor that tries harder to educate and inspire his students than Professor Valvano" - Robin Tsang. Valvano lives by this motto, "There are three steps to immortality: acknowledge your limitations, ask for forgiveness, and then do something special today to make the world a better place."

Excellent BookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 April 2019
This book is thoroughly recommended. It provides a clear and concise approach to the subject, and presents the core setup requirements for starting your own projects. The theory is explained very well, with the code, structures, and implementation presented to ensure that you can progress through the book without questions on which parts are missing, or how to design the code. This aspect is critical to learning about how to understand embedded systems, as opposed to a pure theoretical publication, where you would be left wondering how to implement the theory. The book presentation style is easy to read, and there are detailed explanations of the code, whether C, or machine code.
Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 January 2018
Good book for everyone interested in microcontrollers and operating systems.
It's a good book.Reviewed in Spain on 22 August 2017
It is a very good tool for embedded systems designers! There is a ton of data on everything about the cortex M MCU. I mean a ton of data and fully developed projects for all. You name it, and there is a fully developed project with detailed explanations....

Ottimo libro, parte degli argomenti sono riportati in tutti e tre volumi in maniera identica.Reviewed in Italy on 18 December 2017
Ottimo libro; tratti degli argomenti sono riportati dagli altri due volumi. Questo non sminuisce la chiarezza dell'esposizione. Soddisfatto per averlo acquistato.
