About the Book

About The Book

Embedded Ethernet and Internet Complete is a guide to designing and programming embedded systems to communicate in local Ethernet networks and on the Internet.

This book Bringing together two areas of computer technology-networking and embedded systems. This developers guide offers guidance and examples for each of these, with a focus on the special requirements and limits of embedded systems. Because developing an embedded system for networking requires knowledge from many areas, including circuit design, programming, network architecture, and Ethernet and Internet protocols, developers are given valuable technical information on each that can be put to use right away. Covered are the advantages and limits of using Ethernet to connect embedded systems in a local network, hardware and program code needed to connect an embedded system to an Ethernet network and the Internet, and how to build a network. Also discussed are how embedded systems can use TCP/IP and related protocols and how personal-computer applications can use the protocols to communicate with embedded systems. Developers will learn how their Web servers pages can include dynamic, real-time content and respond to user input.

*** [Jan] presents everything in the context of embedded systems, especially systems with limited resources. And that’s where the real strength of this book lies. Jack Ganssle, The Embedded Muse. Complete review. *** From integrating hardware with device needs to creating such embedded Web site to respond to user input and exchanging messages, here's a detailed treasure trove of data. Midwest Book Review. Complete review. *** Both network programming and developing for embedded devices have reputations as black arts for programmers. Put the two together and you'd think that a developer would need some high wizardry to make any progress. Author Jan Axelson tackles both in 'Embedded Ethernet and Internet Complete: Designing and Programming Small Devices for Networking,', and she does it in a fairly painless fashion too. - Read the whole review. *** Either of these books (Embedded Ethernet and Internet Complete and Embedded Internet Design) will convince you of one thing: The network is everywhere. There’s nothing like looking at a Web page sent by a server the size of a dollar bill that allows you to monitor your pool water temperature and control the pump and the heater while you are on vacation. Ethernet-enabled embedded systems are finally inexpensive and combined with Java, writing network software is fairly straightforward. - Dr. Dobb's Java Newsletter, Al Williams, December 2003


Embedded-device programmers, Anyone who wants to design, program, or learn about networking with embedded systems.

More and more equipment includes built-in Ethernet ports that communicate with computers and equipment across a lab bench or across a continent. But without the practical information Axelson provides in her latest book, designing an Ethernet port and getting it to work properly can present engineers with a challenge. So if you plan to design an embedded system with a built-in network connection, buy this book. The hands-on approach and real software examples make this book invaluable. It serves as a how-to manual for designers and as a reference book for people who need to better understand how networks operate. Readers don't get a lot of useless block diagrams and academic descriptions of networking. Instead, they receive practical information they can immediately apply. Jon Titus, ECN. *** Axelson has struck an ideal blend of detail where needed and summary when detail is not required. The book is organized well and should satisfy both the casual bathroom reader and the rigorous, horribly-cracked-binding, lab-bench-reference reader. I like Axelson's writing style; it's an ideal blend of assume I'm an idiot-style when you need it and in-depth when you want to dig. - Tim Drury, Complete review. *** Recently, I took my daughter to a play about a giant. At turns, the giant was played by an actor and a 30-foot effigy. The other characters were each played both by a person and a 12-inch marionette. It was technically well done: the scale shifted up and down effortlessly. This book does the same thing, swooping from a description of the bitfields in an Ethernet frame, to the nuances of multithreaded network programming, to details of HTTP, SMTP, POP, and FTP; from making network patch cables (really!) to choosing network-ready embedded processor boards, to architecting whole networks. Somehow, the reader doesn't notice the transitions; this vast range of information is all integrated flawlessly. - Ernest Friedman-Hill, Complete review.
