Chapter 7. Other eCos Architecture Components

This chapter details the other software components that are part of the core eCos architecture, including Timing components, Assert and Tracing functionality, and the I/O Control System. The timing components provide different mechanisms for periodic events and are comprised of counters, clocks, alarms, and timers. Asserts and traces provide additional debug functionality so you can build robust embedded systems. Finally, the I/O Control System describes the I/O communication scheme and device driver support.
