In system design (in particular, industrial control systems), there is, and has been, a continuous need to sense real-world analog quantities (such as temperature, pressure, or humidity), make computations with them, and then perform some action with the result. In today's systems, the computations need to be made at increased speeds and the accuracy with which the computations must be made, even as the speed increases, must be the same or higher as time progresses. The advent of the microcontroller, and its extensive use in all types of control applications, many of them battery powered, has led to new control system design approaches. Rather than computing using analog quantities, the analog quantities are sensed, conditioned, and converted to digital, processed digitally, and then converted back to an analog output, which is then used to perform the necessary output action. This practical textbook covers the latest techniques in microcontroller-based control system design. It is aimed at engineering students and engineers new to working with microcontrollers. It covers the fundamentals of: 1. Sensors and the electrical signals they output. 2. The design and application of the electronic circuits that receive and condition (change or modify) the sensor analog signals. 3. The design and application of the circuits that convert analog signals to digital and digital signals to analog. 4. The makeup and operation of a microcontroller and how to program it. 5. The application of electronic circuits for system power control. The book, written by an experienced microcontroller engineer and textbook author, is suitable for community college students, technical school students, technicians and engineers just being introduced to microcontroller system design. It is an introductory book, focusing on real-world implementation of a basic control system, with real-world circuit examples. Readers will find clearly written discussion coupled with lots of illustrations. They will also find worked-out examples that illustrate principles within each chapter and quizzes to aid understanding. Besides these specifics, a hands-on project, suitable for an electronics microcontroller laboratory course, using the popular and low-cost TI MSP430 microcontroller, is discussed in detail. The accompanying CD-ROM contains microcontrollers application notes, code for the software examples, and problem solutions. * Seasoned Texas Instruments designer provides a ground-up perspective on embedded control systems * Pedagogical style provides a self-learning approach with examples, quizzes and review features * CD-ROM contains source code and more!

Learn about designing, programming, and developing with the popular new Texas Instruments family of microcontrollers, the MSP430 series with this new book from Chris Nagy. This product line is experiencing explosive growth due to its low-power consumption and powerful features, but very little design and application information is available other than what is offered by the manufacturer. The book fills a gap in the technical literature for embedded systems engineers by offering a more complete combination of technical data, example code, and descriptive prose than is available from the manufacturer reference information, and is useful to both professionals and hobbyists. Intended for embedded engineers who are new to the embedded field, or for the thousands of engineers who have experience with other microcontrollers (such as PICs, 8051s, or Motorola HC0x devices) but are new to the MSP430 line, Chris Nagy offers a thorough and practical description of the device features, gives development guidelines, and provides design examples. Code examples are used in virtually every chapter and online. The book is divided into three sections: the first section provides detailed descriptions of the devices themselves; the second describes hardware/firmware development for the devices; the third is designed to incorporate information from the first two, and provide guidelines and examples of designs.

Unlike books currently on the market, this book attempts to satisfy two goals: combine circuits and electronics into a single, unified treatment, and establish a strong connection with the contemporary world of digital systems. It will introduce a new way of looking not only at the treatment of circuits, but also at the treatment of introductory coursework in engineering in general. Using the concept of ''abstraction,'' the book attempts to form a bridge between the world of physics and the world of large computer systems. In particular, it attempts to unify electrical engineering and computer science as the art of creating and exploiting successive abstractions to manage the complexity of building useful electrical systems. Computer systems are simply one type of electrical systems. +Balances circuits theory with practical digital electronics applications. +Illustrates concepts with real devices. +Supports the popular circuits and electronics course on the MIT OpenCourse Ware from which professionals worldwide study this new approach. +Written by two educators well known for their innovative teaching and research and their collaboration with industry. +Focuses on contemporary MOS technology.

This revised and extended second edition covers problems concerning the design and realization of digital control algorithms for power electronics circuits using digital signal processing (DSP) methods. This book discusses signal processing, starting from analog signal acquisition, through conversion to digital form, methods of filtration and separation, and ending with pulse control of output power transistors. The book is focused on two applications for the considered methods of digital signal processing, a three-phase shunt active power filter and a digital class-D audio power amplifier. The book bridges the gap between power electronics and digital signal processing. Many control algorithms and circuits for power electronics in the current literature are described using analog transmittances. This may not always be acceptable, especially if half of the sampling frequencies and half of the power transistor switching frequencies are close to the band of interest. Therefore in this book, a digital circuit is treated as a digital circuit with its own peculiar characteristics, rather than an analog circuit. This helps to avoid errors and instability. This edition includes a new chapter dealing with selected problems of simulation of power electronics systems together with digital control circuits. The book includes numerous examples using MATLAB and PSIM programs.
