Micriµm Unveils New Book: µC/OS-III, The Real-Time Kernel


After the introduction of Micriµm's µC/OS-III earlier this year, the biggest question on many engineers' minds was, "Will there be a book?"  Undoubtedly, these engineers were hoping for a follow-up to the highly popular MicroC/OS-II, The Real-Time Kernel.  One of the all-time best sellers in the embedded field, this text has long been recognized not just as the definitive guide to µC/OS-III's vaunted predecessor (µC/OS-II), but as a first-rate introduction to kernels in general.  The thousands of embedded systems developers who use µC/OS-II embrace the book as a welcome departure from the confusing users' manuals that accompany most software vendors' kernels.

With the official release yesterday of µC/OS-III, The Real-Time Kernel, the embedded community no longer has to wonder whether there will be a similar book for Micriµm's newest software component.  Developers seeking to better understand µC/OS-III can now turn to a thorough, well-written text that may be even more helpful than the µC/OS-II book.  µC/OS-III, The Real-Time Kernel, which, like its forerunner, was written by Micriµm president Jean Labrosse, is divided into two parts: The first half of the book offers detailed descriptions of µC/OS-III's services, while the second half outlines several example applications that target the STMicroelectronics STM32 family of microcontrollers.  Conveniently, an evaluation board incorporating one of these devices is provided with the book, allowing readers to immediately begin running the example code.

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only. The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- /usr/src/linux- New set of files to be created Create a new directory newcall/ inside the path “ /usr/src/linux- ” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux- folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call testnewcall.c, testnewcall.h (created in /home/pradeepkumar ) syscall_table_32.S Find the file /usr/src/linux-

How to Access MOODLE in Intranet and Internet

When Moodle is accessed either in Intranet or internet, there will not be any issue. But occasions when the MOODLE Site has to be accessed both in the intranet and in the Internet, here is a simple trick Server Used: IBM Blade Servers Operating system: Windows Server 2008 Moodle Version: 2.4 WAMP Server is used. Number of Users: 3000 (Students) + 200 (Faculty) Open the config.php from ~/moodle/config.php include these lines $CFG->wwwroot = 'http://'.$server_id.'/vitcc'; $CFG->dataroot  = 'C:\\wamp\\moodledata'; before the following line $CFG->directorypermissions = 07xx; Restart the WAMP Server and you can Check MOODLE Site both in Internet and Intranet. The above Image tells the intranet Link and the internet link can be opened outside the campus network
