The CMOS Cookbook contains all you need to know to understand and successfully use CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) integrated circuits. Written in a "cookbook" format that requires little math, this practical, user-oriented book covers all the basics for working with digital logic and many of its end appilations. Whether you're a newcomver to logic and electronics or a senior design engineer, you'll find CMOS Cookbook and its examples helpful as a self-learning guide, a reference handbook, a project-idea book, or a text for teaching others digital logic at the high school through university levels. In the pages of this revised edition, you'll discover: *What CMOS is, who makes it, and how the basic transistors, inverters, and logic and transmission gates work *CMOS usage rules, power-suppy examples, and information on breadboards, state testing, tools, and interfacing *Discussions of the latest CMOS devices and sub-families, including the 74C, 74HC, and 74HCT series that streamline TTL and CMOS interfacing *An in-depth look at multivibrators - including astable, monostable, and bistable - and linear techniques *Clocked-logic designs and the extensive applications of JK and D-type flip-flops *A helpful appendix featuring a TTL-to-CMOS conversion chart
Taking concepts from Don Lancaster's legendary "CMOS Cookbook", the author brings them into the 21st century as he presents an updated look at CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors) from theory to design applications. Ideal for students as well as experienced designers.
You have a Pi 2, but what exactly can you do with it? This book takes you on a tour of the Pi 2 hardware and all of the fantastic things that you can do to create innovative and useful projects with your Pi. Start with creating a workstation that does actual work, and move into installing a custom kernel, creating a clock, learning the ins and outs of the GPIO interface, and pick up some useful C++ skills along the way. Warren Gay, author of Mastering the Raspberry Pi, takes you through a set of experiments to show just what the Pi 2 is capable of and how you can use it to make your own fantastic creations. What You Will Learn: How to create an experimenter's workstation for the Pi 2, complete with breadboard and even Arduino All the details of GPIO, including a custom command for working with it Useful projects like a general purpose clock and the PiSpy Quick intro to C++ for the Pi How to make a multi-core webserver Who this book is for:Intermediate electronics enthusiasts and Pi fans, makers, students, teachers, and everyone who wants to know how to make the Pi really work.
This pioneering text/reference explores how innovative new modes of computation may provide exciting new directions for future developments in the music industry, guiding the reader through the latest research in this emerging, interdisciplinary field. This work includes coverage of electronic music compositions and performances that incorporate unconventional interfacing, hacking and circuit bending. Features: presents an introduction to unconventional computing in music; discusses initiatives involving biophysical electronic music, the work of self-styled silicon luthiers, and the intersection of music and quantum computing; introduces the memristor, a new electronic component with the potential to revolutionize how computers are built; reviews experiments and practical applications of biological memristors in music; describes IMUSIC, an unconventional tone-based programming language, which enables the programming of computers using musical phrases; includes review questions at the end of each chapter.
From the reviews of the 3rd Edition... "The standard reference for anyone interested in understandingflow cytometry technology." American Journal of Clinical Oncology "...one of the most valuable of its genre and...addressed to awide audience?written in such an attractive way, being bothinformative and stimulating." Trends in Cell Biology This reference explains the science and discusses the vastbiomedical applications of quantitative analytical cytology usinglaser-activated detection and cell sorting. Now in its fourthedition, this text has been expanded to provide full coverage ofthe broad spectrum of applications in molecular biology andbiotechnology today. New to this edition are chapters on automatedanalysis of array technologies, compensation, high-speed sorting,reporter molecules, and multiplex and apoptosis assays, along withfully updated and revised references and a list of suppliers.
"How much do you need to know about electronics to create something interesting, or creatively modify something that already exists? If you're in a technical field such as software development, and don't have much experience with electronics components, this hands-on reference helps you find answers to technical questions quickly. Filling the gap between a beginner's primer and a formal textbook, Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques explores aspects of electronic components and techniques that you would typically learn on the job and from years of experience. Even if you've worked with electronics, or have a background in electronics theory, you're bound to find important information that you may not have encountered before. Among the book's many topics, you'll discover how to: Read the data sheet for an electronic component ; Use a variety of tools involved with electronics work ; Assemble various types of connectors ; Minimize noise and interference on a signal interface circuit. Explore topics not usually covered in theoretical books, and go deeper into practical aspects than a step-by-step, project-oriented approach, with Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques." --
