This entertaining and readable book provides a solid, comprehensive introduction to contemporary electronics. It's not a "how-to-do" electronics book, but rather an in-depth explanation of how today's integrated circuits work, how they are designed and manufactured, and how they are put together into powerful and sophisticated electronic systems. In addition to the technical details, it's packed with practical information of interest and use to engineers and support personnel in the electronics industry. It even tells how to pronounce the alphabet soup of acronyms that runs rampant in the industry.

Mathematics Ones and Zeros Understanding Boolean Algebra, Digital Circuits, and the Logic of Sets Ones and Zeros explains, in lay terms, Boolean algebra, the suprisingly simple system of mathematical logic used in digital computer circuitry. Anecdotal in style and often funny, Ones and Zeros follows the development of this logic system from its origins in Victorian England to its rediscovery in this century as the foundation of all modern computing machinery. Readers will learn about the interesting history of the development of symbolic logic in particular, and the often misunderstood process of mathematical invention and scientific discovery, in general. Ones and Zeros also features practical exercises with answers, real-world examples of digital circuit design, and a reading list. This fascinating look at the crucial technology of the twentieth century will be enjoyed by anyone who has a general interest in science, technology, and mathematics. Ones and Zeros will be of particular interest to software engineers who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of computer hardware. Outstanding features include: A history of mathematical logic An explanation of the logic of digital circuits Hands-on exercises and examples About the IEEE Press Understanding Science & Technology Series The IEEE Press Understanding Science & Technology Series treats important topics in science and technology in a simple and easy to understand manner. Designed expressly for the nonspecialist engineer, scientist, or technician, as well as the technologically curious, each volume stresses practical information over mathematical theorems and complicated derivations.

"Industrial Electrical Troubleshooting demonstrates the efficient use of certain electrical meters to troubleshoot relay-logic circuits with a single setting. Today, a generation of electronic meters is available to test voltage and continuity without changing the setting of the meter or de-energizing the circuit. Careful attention has been given to safety procedures throughout the book. Traditional troubleshooting techniques have not kept pace with this equipment though. Instructors and students will find comprehensive and up-to-date information for safely and efficiently locating problems and then troubleshooting online. Multimeters, clamp-on meters, ammeters, megohmmeters, proximity voltage meters, hand-held oscilloscopes and other meters are thoroughly discussed as plant electrical troubleshooting tools.

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are devices that provide a fast, low-cost way for embedded system designers to customize products and deliver new versions with upgraded features, because they can handle very complicated functions, and be reconfigured an infinite number of times. In addition to introducing the various architectural features available in the latest generation of FPGAs, The Design Warrior’s Guide to FPGAs also covers different design tools and flows. This book covers information ranging from schematic-driven entry, through traditional HDL/RTL-based simulation and logic synthesis, all the way up to the current state-of-the-art in pure C/C++ design capture and synthesis technology. Also discussed are specialist areas such as mixed hardward/software and DSP-based design flows, along with innovative new devices such as field programmable node arrays (FPNAs). Clive "Max" Maxfield is a bestselling author and engineer with a large following in the electronic design automation (EDA)and embedded systems industry. In this comprehensive book, he covers all the issues of interest to designers working with, or contemplating a move to, FPGAs in their product designs. While other books cover fragments of FPGA technology or applications this is the first to focus exclusively and comprehensively on FPGA use for embedded systems. First book to focus exclusively and comprehensively on FPGA use in embedded designs World-renowned best-selling author Will help engineers get familiar and succeed with this new technology by providing much-needed advice on choosing the right FPGA for any design project

Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Technician's and Engineer's Guide provides an introduction to the components and operation of a hydraulic or pneumatic system. This book discusses the main advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic or hydraulic systems. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of industrial prime movers. This text then examines the three different types of positive displacement pump used in hydraulic systems, namely, gear pumps, vane pumps, and piston pumps. Other chapters consider the pressure in a hydraulic system, which can be quickly and easily controlled by devices such as unloading and pressure regulating valves. This book discusses as well the importance of control valves in pneumatic and hydraulic systems to regulate and direct the flow of fluid from compressor or pump to the various load devices. The final chapter deals with the safe-working practices of the systems. This book is a valuable resource for process control engineers.

Based on familiar circuit theory and basic physics, this book serves as an invaluable reference for both analog and digital engineers alike. For those who work with analog RF, this book is a must-have resource. With computers and networking equipment of the 21st century running at such high frequencies, it is now crucial for digital designers to understand electromagnetic fields, radiation and transmission lines. This knowledge is necessary for maintaining signal integrity and achieving EMC compliance. Since many digital designers are lacking in analog design skills, let alone electromagnetics, an easy-to-read but informative book on electromagnetic topics should be considered a welcome addition to their professional libraries. Covers topics using conceptual explanations and over 150 lucid figures, in place of complex mathematics Demystifies antennas, waveguides, and transmission line phenomena Provides the foundation necessary to thoroughly understand signal integrity issues associated with high-speed digital design
