Description:
The x86 processor family is the best-known in the world, but most people think of it as the chip inside their PC. What about using x86 for intelligent embedded systems without Windows? This tutorial outlines all the great features of the x86 chip family, from its programming model to its built-in task management, real-time capabilities, hidden debugging features, and more.

Programmers and engineering managers alike will gain a new appreciation for this well-rounded chip family, whether they’re considering a low-cost Atom platform or a high-end Core- or Xeon-based system. Illustrations, helpful tips, and useful descriptions round out this presentation, delivered by x86 chip expert Jim Turley.

Presenter:
Jim Turley is a professional nerd, specializing in microprocessors and embedded systems. He’s the author of seven books, the former Editor-in-Chief of Embedded Systems Design magazine and Microprocessor Report newsletter, the founder of Silicon insider, and an enthusiastic race car driver.

This is a really nice and well developed presentation. It starts with the description of old x86 processors and gradually goes on to explain the current x86 processors architecture in detail. Thank you so much !

Excellent in-depth review of the architecture, with objective comparisons to other architectures; thank you!! In which version of the architecture was the memory segmentation changed? (I apologize in advance if I missed this in your presentation)
