A recent survey stated that 52% of embedded projects are late by 4-5 months. This book can help get those projects in on-time with design patterns. The author carefully takes into account the special concerns found in designing and developing embedded applications specifically concurrency, communication, speed, and memory usage. Patterns are given in UML (Unified Modeling Language) with examples including ANSI C for direct and practical application to C code.
A basic C knowledge is a prerequisite for the book while UML notation and terminology is included. General C programming books do not include discussion of the contraints found within embedded system design. The practical examples give the reader an understanding of the use of UML and OO (Object Oriented) designs in a resource-limited environment. Also included are two chapters on state machines. The beauty of this book is that it can help you today. .

This book enables design engineers to be more effective in designing discrete and integrated circuits by helping them understand the role of analog devices in their circuit design. Analog elements are at the heart of many important functions in both discrete and integrated circuits, but from a design perspective the analog components are often the most difficult to understand. Examples include operational amplifiers, D/A and A/D converters and active filters. Effective circuit design requires a strong understanding of the operation of these analog devices and how they affect circuit design.

Reviews of previous editions:

"Jam-packed with theory, circuit analysis, and DIY basics, it will walk you through all stages of design so that you can create your own wonders. Jones is an ex-BBC engineer with a cool writing style and you ll find it a no-pain education." Hi-Fi News and Record Review

"Valve Amplifiers is an extremely well written book, containing a wealth of information that all audio designers and builders will find useful." Glass Audio

Valve Amplifiers is a market leader for one simple reason: in this specialist area it is recognized as the most complete guide to valve and vacuum tube amplifier design, modification, analysis, construction and maintenance. It is truly the all you need to know guide, and enables audio and circuit designers to succeed with their valve amplifier designs and projects.

This book enables readers to understand, create, reconfigure and personalize high-end, audiophile quality amplifiers. Following a step-by-step approach to design, with little maths and lots of know-how, it starts with a brief review of electronic fundamentals relevant to valve amplifiers, simple stages, compound stages, linking stages together, and finally, complete designs.

The new material included in this Fourth Edition ensures this book will stay at the top of any audio designer s or enthusiast s reference list.

What s new within the chapters:

Chapter 1: Charge amplifiers

Chapter 2: Additional circuits, semiconductor constant current sources expanded

Chapter 3: Entire new section on noise

Chapter 4: Lots of new measurements to explode or explain audio folklore

Chapter 5: Astonishingly quiet, but cheap and simple HT supply

Chapter 6: New power amplifier

Chapter 7: New hybrid balanced RIAA stage, attenuator law faking

VA3's focus was on distortion, but in VA4, focus is pushed towards background noise reduction. If that wasn t enough, there s more explanation, more measurements, more references, and plenty of new one-liners, any one of which might save hours of trouble.
* The practical guide to analysis, modification, design, construction and maintenance of valve amplifiers
* The fully up-to-date approach to valve electronics
* Essential reading for audio designers and music and electronics enthusiasts alike"

Get the practical knowledge you need to set up and deploy XBee modules with this hands-on, step-by-step series of experiments The only book to cover XBee in practical fashion; enables you to get up and running quickly with step-by-step tutorials.

Provides insight into the product data sheets, saving you time and helping you get straight to the information you need.

Includes troubleshooting and testing information, plus downloadable configuration files and fully-documented source code to illustrate and explain operations.

The Hands-on XBee Lab Manual takes the reader through a range of experiments, using a hands-on approach. Each section demonstrates module set up and configuration, explores module functions and capabilities, and, where applicable, introduces the necessary microcontrollers and software to control and communicate with the modules. Experiments cover simple setup of modules, establishing a network of modules, identifying modules in the network, and some sensor-interface designs.

This book explains, in practical terms, the basic capabilities and potential uses of XBee modules, and gives engineers the know-how that they need to apply the technology to their networks and embedded systems.

Jon Titus (KZ1G) is a Freelance technical writer, editor, and designer based in Herriman, Utah, USA and previously editorial director at Test & Measurement World magazine and EDN magazine. Titus is the inventor of the first personal-computer kit, the Mark-8, now in the collection at the Smithsonian Institution.

Starting Electronics (Paperback, 4th edition): Keith Brindley Starting Electronics (Paperback, 4th edition)
Keith Brindley
R453 Discovery Miles 4 530 Within 7 - 11 working days

Starting Electronics is unrivalled as a highly practical introduction for technicians, non-electronic engineers, software engineers, students, and hobbyists. Keith Brindley introduces readers to the functions of the main component types, their uses, and the basic principles of building and designing electronic circuits. Breadboard layouts make this very much a ready-to-run book for the experimenter, and the use of readily available, inexpensive components makes this practical exploration of electronics easily accessible to all levels of engineer and hobbyist.

Other books tell readers what to do, but sometimes fail to explain why - Brindley gives readers hands-on confidence in addition to real scientific knowledge, and insight into the principles as well as the practice. All written explanations and steps are supplemented with numerous photos, charts, tables and graphs. Concepts and practical aspects are explained thoroughly with mathematical formulae and technical schematic drawings.

Each chapter introduces a concept or tool, explains the basic theory, and provides clear instructions for a simple experiment to apply the concept or tool, with quiz sections and answers, at the end of each chapter. New chapters on multimeters and soldering will be added, covering the fundamentals and experiments, with a basic parts list and an expanded and updated buyer s guide.

The Designer s Guide to the Cortex-M Family is a tutorial-based book giving the key concepts required to develop programs in C with a Cortex M- based processor. The book begins with an overview of the Cortex- M family, giving architectural descriptions supported with practical examples, enabling the engineer to easily develop basic C programs to run on the Cortex- M0/M0+/M3 and M4. It then examines the more advanced features of the Cortex architecture such as memory protection, operating modes and dual stack operation. Once a firm grounding in the Cortex M processor has been established the book introduces the use of a small footprint RTOS and the CMSIS DSP library.

With this book you will learn:

The key differences between the Cortex M0/M0+/M3 and M4 How to write C programs to run on Cortex-M based processors How to make best use of the Coresight debug system How to do RTOS development The Cortex-M operating modes and memory protectionAdvanced software techniques that can be used on Cortex-M microcontrollers How to optimise DSP code for the cortex M4 and how to build real time DSP systems
An Introduction to the Cortex microcontroller software interface standard (CMSIS), a common framework for all Cortex M- based microcontrollers Coverage of the CMSIS DSP library for Cortex M3 and M4 An evaluation tool chain IDE and debugger which allows the accompanying example projects to be run in simulation on the PC or on low cost hardware"
