Here’s a real find, courtesy of LinkedIn: a full semester of lecture notes from Philip Koopman’s new Embedded System Software Engineering grad-level class at CMU. That’s more than 40 modules in PDF form online and these are packed with info!


What’s this got to do with Xilinx? Anyone writing code for the multiple Arm Cortex processors in Xilinx Zynq SoCs and Zynq UltraScale MPSoCs or for embedded MicroBlaze processors instantiated in Xilinx FPGA fabrics will benefit from the info in these lecture notes. My hat’s off to Professor Koopman for posting these notes and then posting the URL on LinkedIn.


Oh, he’s got a book too titled “Better Embedded System Software,” which you can get from Amazon for $66.05 or from Professor Koopman’s Web site for $69.99 with included shipping. (The book retails for $140.)
