The Microsoft® Windows® driver model (WDM) supports Plug and Play, provides power management capabilities, and expands on the driver/minidriver approach. Written by long-time device-driver expert Walter Oney in cooperation with the Windows kernel team, this book provides extensive practical examples, illustrations, advice, and line-by-line analysis of code samples to clarify real-world driver-programming issues. And it's been updated with the latest details about the driver technologies in Windows XP and Windows 2000, plus more information about how to debug drivers. Topics covered include: Beginning a driver project and the structure of a WDM driver; NEW: Minidrivers and class drivers, driver taxonomy, the WDM development environment and tools, management checklist, driver selection and loading, approved API calls, and driver stacks Basic programming techniques; NEW: Safe string functions, memory limits, the Driver Verifier scheme and tags, the kernel handle flag, and the Windows 98 floating-point problem Synchronization; NEW: Details about the interrupt request level (IRQL) scheme, along with Windows 98 and Windows Me compatibility The I/O request packet (IRP) and I/O control operations; NEW: How to send control operations to other drivers, custom queue implementations, and how to handle and safely cancel IRPs Plug and Play for function drivers; NEW: Controller and multifunction devices, monitoring device removal in user mode, Human Interface Devices (HID), including joysticks and other game controllers, minidrivers for non-HID devices, and feature reports Reading and writing data, power management, and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) NEW: System wakeup, the WMI control for idle detection, and using WMIMOFCK Specialized topics and distributing drivers; NEW: USB 2.0, selective suspend, Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) certification, driver selection and loading, officially approved API calls, and driver stacks COVERS WINDOWS 98, WINDOWS ME, WINDOWS 2000, AND WINDOWS XP!

Reflecting the advances made since the first edition was published, this new edition offers a succinct and concise tutorial on the major types of networks in use today. Each modular chapter provides a complete description of a major computer network technology, covering Frame Relay, SMDS, FDDI, and SONET technology. This volume will be a valuable working tool for computer programmers, project managers, team leaders, computer engineers, and anyone responsible for recommending, purchasing, installing, or maintaining computer network communications systems.
In The Embedded Internet Sergio Scaglia examines the techniques that programmers will need to learn to obtain internet connectivity for their embedded systems. Sometimes this will be relatively straight-forward, using TCP/IP stack implementations which already exist. Sometimes, this will be much more difficult, requiring whole new implementations to be developed. Either way, The Embedded Internet will be the ideal starting place for programmers to learn and develop these skills. The book is structured in three parts. The first part comprehensively covers TCP/IP. This gives the reader the necessary background knowledge of the internet that they will need when considering embedded systems connectivity. The second part details how to implement embedded internet systems. The third and final part gives a conceptual overview of just a handful of the countless ways in which internet connectivity can benefit an embedded system.
