Ptolemy Book cover Claudius Ptolemaeus, editor, System Design, Modeling, and Simulation using Ptolemy II, Ptolemy.org, 2014, available as a free PDF download and low-cost paperback.

This book is a definitive introduction to models of computation for the design of complex, heterogeneous systems. It has a particular focus on cyber-physical systems, which integrate computing, networking, and physical dynamics. The book captures more than twenty years of experience in the Ptolemy Project at UC Berkeley, which pioneered many design, modeling, and simulation techniques that are now in widespread use. All of the methods covered in the book are realized in the open source Ptolemy II modeling framework and are available for experimentation through links provided in the book.

E. A. Lee and S. A. Seshia, Embedded Systems -- A Cyber-Physical Systems Approach, LeeSeshia.org, 2011, available as a free PDF download and low-cost paperback.

This book strives to identify and introduce the durable intellectual ideas of embedded systems as a technology and as a subject of study. The emphasis is on modeling, design, and analysis of cyber-physical systems, which integrate computing, networking, and physical processes. The book is intended for students at the advanced undergraduate level or the introductory graduate level, and for practicing engineers and computer scientists who wish to understand the engineering principles of embedded systems.

E. A. Lee and P. Varaiya, Structure and Interpretation of Signals and Systems, Second Edition, LeeVaraiya.org, 2011, available as a free PDF download and low-cost paperback.

This book provides an accessible introduction to signals and systems for electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science students, and is based on several years of successful classroom use at the University of California, Berkeley. The material starts with an early introduction to applications, well before students have built up enough theory to fully analyze the applications. This motivates students to learn the theory and allows students to master signals and systems at the sophomore level. The material motivates signals and systems through sound and images, as opposed to circuits, and as such calculus is the only prerequisite.

cover J. Barry, E. A. Lee and D. G. Messerschmitt, Digital Communication, Kluwer Academic Press, 2004 (third edition).

This book is intended for designers and would-be designers of digital communication systems. The general approach of the book is to extract the common principles underlying a range of media and applications and present them in a unified framework. Specifically, we treat the transport of bit streams from one geographical location to another over various physical media, such as wire pairs, coaxial cable, optical fiber, and radio. We also treat multiple-access channels, where there are potentially multiple transmitters and receivers sharing a common medium. .

cover S. S. Bhattacharyya, P. K. Murthy, and E. A. Lee, Software Synthesis from Dataflow Graphs Kluwer Academic Press, 1996.

This book studies the problem of synthesizing software for embedded signal processing systems starting from applications expressed as synchronous dataflow (SDF) graphs. After a comprehensive review of the theory behind SDF, techniques are given to optimize primarily the program memory size and secondarily the data memory size. To accomplish this, SDF graphs describing multirate signal processing applications are scheduled into nested loops. A formal theory for constructing and manipulating these loops is developed, and a class of looping structures, called single appearance schedules, is shown to be the most efficient with respect to code size. The existence of such structures is studied, and algorithms for optimally constructing them are given. Extensive experimental data is presented, demonstrating the efficacy of the techniques.

cover P. Lapsley, J. Bier, A. Shoham, and E. A. Lee, DSP Processor Fundamentals -- Architectures and Features, IEEE Press, New York, 1997.

This book describes key aspects of DSP processor architectures including numeric formats, data paths, memory structures, instruction sets, execution control, and pipelining. It also covers features found on today's highly integrated DSPs, such as on-chip peripherals, on-chip debugging facilities, and clocking options. Additionally, the book discusses the advantages and disadvantages of various types of DSP hardware and software development tools. Commercially available DSP processors are used as examples. The book is intended for design engineers, engineering managers, marketing managers, DSP and microprocessor architects, and students of architecture.

cover E. A. Lee and D. G. Messerschmitt, Digital Communication, Kluwer Academic Press, 1994 (second edition)

This book concerns the transport of bit streams from one geographical location to another over various physical media. The material is relevant to the design of local and metropolitan area data networks, voice and video telephony systems, digital CATV distribution, digital cellular and radio systems, the narrowband and broadband integrated services digital network (ISDN), computer communication systems, voiceband data modems, and satellite communication systems. We extract the common principles underlying these and other applications and present them in a unified framework.
