Hi Srikar -- I'm not sure about the source code -- I'll ask Micrium to comment about that. Re the board, you can purchase it from the Micrium Website, but I just went there and couldn't see it -- I'll ask then to comment about that also. Watch this space -- Max

Hi Clive, I am relatively new to the field of embedded systems and I want to learn more about RTOS. I had a couple of questions regarding this book and the kit. 1) Do we also get the uCOS III source code with the board? 2) Amazon is only selling the book and not the board, which would be the best place to buy the board? Thanks in advance. Srikar

Ravi, I am grateful for the glowing comment on my previous book. We at Micrium take the education of engineers seriously and we continue to expand on my kernel-based books, publishing texts across the wide range of technologies that make up the RTOS. These subjects are difficult enough without trying to make them even more complex. I so appreciate you taking the time to write a response to Max’s review, and naturally equally appreciate Max writing it. You will find the uC/OS-III books (we have it available for some of the ST, TI, Renesas and NXP chips) and the uC/TCP-IP book (ST) even more useful since they are available with evaluation boards and tools.

Hi Jagdish -- thanks for the info -- could you recommend a list of such books? In fact, if you wanted to write a blog listing the books and telling us about them (and then send it to me) I could post it here on the relevant EE Times Designline pages...

Hi Clive, Thanks for the review. It's the same with me as well - have read & grown-up reading Jean's first book & owe him a lot for the clarity in real-time concepts that I have today. Will try to get a copy of this edition as well. Meanwhile, I wish to bring to the notice of other readers about books on open source RTOS like freertos & eCos. Besides the books that are available for a reasonable price, these open source RTOSs also provide a good documentation, which, if explored diligently can provide an excellent insight into the world of an RTOS.

Hi Ravi -- thanks for your comment -- it's amazing that there is so little information about RTOSs out there, and the information that is available is so poor (hard to understand). I thought this book was brilliant -- Max

My comment comes from reading the previous edition long time ago. This was the only book I found which explained the RTOS in an understandable manner. I owe all my work and knowledge to this book. Thank you Jean. Ravi Shankar Merlinhawk Aerospace
