Arduino I

Arduino I

Author: Steven F. Barrett Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/04/2020

This book is about the Arduino microcontroller and the Arduino concept. The visionary Arduino team of Massimo Banzi, David Cuartielles, Tom Igoe, Gianluca Martino, and David Mellis launched a new innovation in microcontroller hardware in 2005, the concept of open-source hardware. Their approach was to openly share details of microcontroller-based hardware design platforms to stimulate the sharing of ideas and promote innovation. This concept has been popular in the software world for many years. In June 2019, Joel Claypool and I met to plan the fourth edition of Arduino Microcontroller Processing for Everyone! Our goal has been to provide an accessible book on the rapidly changing world of Arduino for a wide variety of audiences including students of the fine arts, middle and senior high school students, engineering design students, and practicing scientists and engineers. To make the book more accessible to better serve our readers, we decided to change our approach and provide a series of smaller volumes. Each volume is written to a specific audience. This book, Arduino I: Getting Started is written for those looking for a quick tutorial on the Arduino environment, platforms, interface techniques, and applications. Arduino II will explore advanced techniques, applications, and systems design. Arduino III will explore Arduino applications in the Internet of Things (IoT). Arduino I: Getting Started covers three different Arduino products: the Arduino UNO R3 equipped with the Microchip ATmega328, the Arduino Mega 2560 equipped with the Microchip ATmega2560, and the wearable Arduino LilyPad.

Circuit Design with VHDL

Circuit Design with VHDL

Author: Volnei A. (UTFPR - Federal Technological University of Parana State) Pedroni Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/04/2020

A completely updated and expanded comprehensive treatment of VHDL and its applications to the design and simulation of real, industry-standard circuits. This comprehensive treatment of VHDL and its applications to the design and simulation of real, industry-standard circuits has been completely updated and expanded for the third edition. New features include all VHDL-2008 constructs, an extensive review of digital circuits, RTL analysis, and an unequaled collection of VHDL examples and exercises. The book focuses on the use of VHDL rather than solely on the language, with an emphasis on design examples and laboratory exercises. The third edition begins with a detailed review of digital circuits (combinatorial, sequential, state machines, and FPGAs), thus providing a self-contained single reference for the teaching of digital circuit design with VHDL. In its coverage of VHDL-2008, it makes a clear distinction between VHDL for synthesis and VHDL for simulation. The text offers complete VHDL codes in examples as well as simulation results and comments. The significantly expanded examples and exercises include many not previously published, with multiple physical demonstrations meant to inspire and motivate students. The book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students in VHDL and digital circuit design, and can be used as a professional reference for VHDL practitioners. It can also serve as a text for digital VLSI in-house or academic courses.

Introducing Design Automation for Quantum Computing

Introducing Design Automation for Quantum Computing

Author: Alwin Zulehner, Robert Wille Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/04/2020

This book offers readers an easy introduction into quantum computing as well as into the design for corresponding devices. The authors cover several design tasks which are important for quantum computing and introduce corresponding solutions.

Electronics for Physicists

Electronics for Physicists

Author: Bryan H. Suits Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/03/2020

This book provides undergraduate physics majors and students of related sciences with a sound basic understanding of electronics and how it is used, principally in the physical sciences. While today few science students go on to careers that demand an ability to design and build electronic circuits, many will use and rely on electronics. As scientists, they will require an appropriate level of fundamental knowledge that enables them, for example, to understand what electronic equipment is doing, to correctly interpret the measurements obtained, and to appreciate the numerous links between electronics and how it is practiced, and other areas of science. Discussing electronics in the broader context and from the point of view of the scientist, this book is intended for students who are not planning to become electronics specialists. It has been written in a relatively informal, personal style and includes detailed examples, as well as some outside the box material to inspire thought and creativity. A selection of relevant exercises is included at the end of each chapter.

Guide To Semiconductor Engineering

Guide To Semiconductor Engineering

Author: Jerzy (The Pennsylvania State Univ, Usa) Ruzyllo Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/03/2020

This Guide to Semiconductor Engineering is concerned with semiconductor materials, devices and process technologies which in combination are the driving force behind the unprecedented growth of our technical civilization over the last half a century. This book was conceived and written keeping in mind those who need to learn about semiconductor engineering, who are professionally associated with select aspects of this technical domain and want to see it in a broader context, or are simply interested in semiconductors. In its coverage of semiconductor engineering this Guide departs from textbook-style, monothematic in-depth coverage of topics such as the physics of semiconductors and semiconductor devices, the manufacturing of semiconductor devices and circuits, and the characterization of semiconductor materials. Instead, it covers the entire field of semiconductor engineering in one concise volume with synergistic interactions between various areas clearly identified. It is a holistic approach to the coverage of semiconductor engineering which makes this guide unique among books covering semiconductor related issues available on the market today.
