Arduino Cookbook 3rd Edition is the circuit design, microcontrollers and integrated circuits book that offers the best techniques to master Arduino. Nicholas Robert Weldin is the author of this remarkable book. Nicholas spends decades as a technologist in computing and he knows how things work in real-time. If you wanted to create those devices who have the ability to interact with the outer environment then this guide is surely for you. It is a remarkable book for the students of the programming environment, Arduino microcontroller, and for other purposes. The student will find over two-hundred tips and tricks to manufacture various prototypes and objects. It is time to master yourself in creating robots, toys, detectors, and others. A user can also introduce the sense to respond to objects like heat, sound, touch, and position, etc. This guide takes the reader step by step through every phase and there is no need to become an expert to get started through this application. Learn all the essential techniques to master Arduino. Figure out the basic techniques for dealing with analog signals and reading digital. Offers the drive visual displays, control several motors and generate sound, etc. It easily handles the latest techniques of programming so you can apply them easily.

The TINI Specification and Developer’s Guide
by Don Loomis
382 Pages · 2001 · 13.6 MB · 2,868 Downloads · New!
With TINI (Tiny InterNet Interface), you can Web-enable just about anything. TINI makes it easy and inexpensive to develop Web-based Java applications for controlling and monitoring embedded systems in a wide range of corporate, industrial, and home applications. Now, TINI’s architect and lead developer has written the definitive guide and reference for this new technology: The TINI Specification and Programmer’s Guide. Don Loomis starts by introducing TINI, a breakthrough microprocessor chipset that contains a microcontroller, operating system, TCP/IP network stack, and Java Virtual Machine. Loomis reviews the essentials of programming embedded controllers, and introduces practical techniques for writing Java-based TINI control and monitoring applications — including practical I/O techniques most Java programmers haven’t been exposed to. The book includes extensive example code — all provided on the accompanying CD-ROM, together with the complete TINI specification. For every developer seeking low-cost ways to Internet-enable their devices — including Java developers, embedded systems developers, Web server programmers, hobbyists, and many others.

VHDL for Logic Synthesis, 3rd Edition
by Andrew Rushton
484 Pages · 2011 · 4.3 MB · 1,985 Downloads · New!
Many engineers encountering VHDL (very high speed integrated circuits hardware description language) for the first time can feel overwhelmed by it. This book bridges the gap between the VHDL language and the hardware that results from logic synthesis with clear organisation, progressing from the basics of combinational logic, types, and operators; through special structures such as tristate buses, register banks and memories, to advanced themes such as developing your own packages, writing test benches and using the full range of synthesis types.
Micro, Nanosystems and Systems on Chips

Micro and nanosystems represent a major scientific and technological challenge, with actual and potential applications in almost all fields of the human activity. The aim of the present book is to present how concepts from dynamical control systems (modeling, estimation, observation, identification, feedback control) can be adapted and applied to the development of original very small-scale systems and of their human interfaces. The application fields presented here come from micro and nanorobotics, biochips, near-field microscopy (AFM and STM) and nanosystems networks. Alina Voda has drawn contributions from leading experts at top research universities in France to produce a first overview of the major role that control systems science can play in the development of micro and nanosciences and technologies.
