Some previous editions of this book were published from Pearson Education (ISBN 9788131730225). This book, designed for those who are taking introductory courses on operating systems, presents both theoretical and practical aspects of modern operating systems. Although the emphasis is on theory, while exposing you (the reader) the subject matter, this book maintains a balance between theory and practice. The theories and technologies that have fueled the evolution of operating systems are primarily geared towards two goals: user convenience in maneuvering computers and efficient utilization of hardware resources. This book also discusses many fundamental concepts that have been formulated over the past several decades and that continue to be used in many modern operating systems. In addition, this book also discusses those technologies that prevail in many modern operating systems such as UNIX, Solaris, Linux, and Windows. While the former two have been used to present many in-text examples, the latter two are dealt with as separate technological case studies. They highlight the various issues in the design and development of operating systems and help you correlate theories to technologies. This book also discusses Android exposing you a modern software platform for embedded devices. This book supersedes ISBN 9788131730225 and its other derivatives, from Pearson Education India. (They have been used as textbooks in many schools worldwide.) You will definitely love this self edition, and you can use this as a textbook in undergraduate-level operating systems courses.

This book introduces the fundamental concepts and practical simulation techniques for modeling different aspects of operating systems to study their general behavior and their performance. The approaches applied are object-oriented modeling and the process interaction approach to simulation. Most other books on performance modeling use only analytical approaches, and very few apply these modeling concepts to the study of operating systems. Thus, the unique feature of the book is that it concentrates on the study of operating systems using practical simulation techniques. In addition, the book illustrates the dynamic behavior of operating systems using a rich collection of simulation models. The book does not present the detailed theory of operating systems which appears in standard textbooks on the subject. In this respect, this book is a supplemental book to the standard operating systems textbooks, and it concentrates on the practical aspects of performance modeling with simulation.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Embedded systems are becoming an integral part of commercial products today. Mobile phones, watches, cars and flights controllers etc. are to name a few. There are critical elements between the system hardware and the software, one of the primary is the Real Time Operating System which ensures control, compatibility and timing. The Real Time Operating System has to interface/communicate well with the hardware below it to prevent casualty, and with the software above to ensure the applications running in a proper way. Therefore, more and more attention is being paid to the porting relationship between Real Time Operating System and Application Software by engineers in embedded field. Comparing and evaluating the performance of different Real Time Operating Systems is getting more important. Measuring is the only way to provide useful information, for example, which Real Time Operating System is best suitable for a specific hardware configuration. The purpose of this thesis paper is to find an approach to exchange MicroC/OS-II with NOKIA Car-kit OS on a micro-controller system. Besides porting MicroC/OS-II to the micro-controller system, the interfaces to higher level application software should be generated to adapt the application software to MicroC/OS-II. Finally, evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of them. In chapter 1, a brief introduction is provided. In chapter 2, the concept of RTOS and the development of Real Time Kernel are introduced. The field on which RTOS is always focusing and why RTOS is especially important in Embedded Systems are explained. The essential performance and the differences among several RTOS are also discussed in this chapter. In chapter 3, the micro Real Time Kernel MicroC/OS-II is introduced in details. The speciality of MicroC/OS-II and the services provided from MicroC/OS-II are explained. Also, the micro-controllers that MicroC/OS-II supported are introduced. In chapter 4, NOKIA Car-kit OS (NOKIA Car-kit Operating System) is introduced. The development history and some of important service mechanism are introduced briefly. In chapter 5, the evaluation and comparison of these two Operating Systems are made. The most important characteristics, the advantages and disadvantages for both of these two RTOS are discussed. In chapter 6, the software-mapping layer is discussed in detail. In this part, the whole software development procedure is explained. Issues from problem analyse, [...]
