The second edition also adds a chapter on embedded system design fundamentals and provides extended examples on two different autonomous robots. Our approach is to provide the fundamental skills to quickly get up and operating with this internationally popular microcontroller. We cover the main subsystems aboard the ATmega164, providing a short theory section followed by a description of the related microcontroller subsystem with accompanying hardware and software to exercise the subsystem. In all examples, we use the C programming language. We include a detailed chapter describing how to interface the microcontroller to a wide variety of input and output devices and conclude with several system level examples.

A Hundred Solved Problems in Power Electronics

A Hundred Solved Problems in Power Electronics presents a large collection of questions and their answers for someone who is interested in understanding the operation principle of power electronics converters. By creating a real engineering environment around the question, the goal of this book is to contribute on the development of a qualified electrical engineering workforce. By using engineering language and technical terminology (jargon), this book deals primarily with the challenge of designing power converters for specific applications. This includes, but is not limited to, personal computer power supply, regulated voltage source, and interconnection of renewable energy sources. Since engineering is the application of science to practical use, the link with a real world activity fills the gap between theory and practical application and increases the curiosity of the students. Before each question there is a short text explaining the purpose of that specific problem and how it is associated with real world conditions. The majority of the questions in this book follow a logical sequence, which is an attempt to demonstrate the step-by-step process of a power electronics converter design. Indeed, the purpose of this book is to present a more exciting type of question and show how the theory in power electronics is related to real world problems. Rather than just plugging in numbers for a given equation, this book shows practical examples on how to use scientific and technical knowledge to make, operate, and maintain complex systems. Although engineering is one of the professions that actually allows someone to build and create something that could eventually change the life of people (e.g., personal computer or satellite), there is sometimes a lack of motivation from the students in the classroom. It is quite clear that the students are comfortable with math, especially at the senior level. Therefore, the lack of motivation is not due to background deficiency. Instead, the discouragement increases when students do not correlate the subject taught with their future professional activities. Also, the way traditional lectures are set up--with theory presentation followed by examples where students just need to plug in the given data into specific equations--does not keep students' interest and attention. In fact, the moment of solving a specific problem, in a traditional way to teach, comes down to this question: what's the equation that I need to use to plug these given numbers? This is stimulated by the way the problems are designed. We hope that this book offers an alternative on how the students view and address the problems in power electronics. This book is a desirable didactic material to be employed as a reference book instead of a text book (from which the instructor prepares his/her lecture). Notice that the terminology used in A Hundred Solved Problems in Power Electronics is not necessarily the same as the one seen in either the text book or from the instructor lectures. This is actually a benefit for the students in electrical engineering since they will learn different terms for the same component or electrical element. Certainly this difference in nomenclature will be seen by the students as an advantage when they are reading technical datasheets and realize that manufacturers often use different terms for the same information. By dividing this book into five parts, the authors compile the solved problems into the following categories: 1) Converters with power diodes 2) SCR converters 3) Dc-dc converters 4) Dc-ac converters 5) Isolated dc-ac converters Such a book structure follows the same sequence of topics as most power electronics books in the technical literature, which simplifies the use of A Hundred Solved Questions in Power Electronics as a recommended book in parallel with other references.

Practical UML Statecharts in C/C++

Practical UML Statecharts in C/C++ Second Edition bridges the gap between high-level abstract concepts of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the actual programming aspects of modern hierarchical state machines (UML statecharts). The book describes a lightweight, open source, event-driven infrastructure, called QP that enables direct manual coding UML statecharts and concurrent event-driven applications in C or C++ without big tools. This book is presented in two parts. In Part I, you get a practical description of the relevant state machine concepts starting from traditional finite state automata to modern UML state machines followed by state machine coding techniques and state-machine design patterns, all illustrated with executable examples. In Part II, you find a detailed design study of a generic real-time framework indispensable for combining concurrent, event-driven state machines into robust applications. Part II begins with a clear explanation of the key event-driven programming concepts such as inversion of control ( Hollywood Principle ), blocking versus non-blocking code, run-to-completion (RTC) execution semantics, the importance of event queues, dealing with time, and the role of state machines to maintain the context from one event to the next. This background is designed to help software developers in making the transition from the traditional sequential to the modern event-driven programming, which can be one of the trickiest paradigm shifts. The lightweight QP event-driven infrastructure goes several steps beyond the traditional real-time operating system (RTOS). In the simplest configuration, QP runs on bare-metal microprocessor, microcontroller, or DSP completely replacing the RTOS. QP can also work with almost any OS/RTOS to take advantage of the existing device drivers, communication stacks, and other middleware. The accompanying website to this book contains complete open source code for QP, ports to popular processors and operating systems, including 80x86, ARM Cortex-M3, MSP430, and Linux, as well as all examples described in the book.

The NATO Advanced Study Institute "Biomedical Optical Instrumentation and Laser Assisted Biotechnology" was held November 10-22, 1995 in Erice, Sicily. This was the 19 th conference organized by the International School of Quantum Electronics, under the auspices of the "Ettore Majorana" Center for Scientific Culture. The contributions presented at the Institute are written as extended, review-like papers to provide a broad and representative coverage of the fields of laser techniques, optoelectronics systems for medical diagnosis, and light and laser applications to Biology and Medicine. The aim of the Institute was to bring together some of the world's acknowledged scientists and clinicians that belong to different disciplines and consequently do not usually meet, but who have as a common link the use of optoelectronics instrumentation, techniques and procedures. Most of the lecturers attended all the lectures and devoted their spare hours to stimulating discussions. We would like to thank them all for their admirable contributions. The Institute also took advantage of a very active audience; most of the participants were active researchers in the field and contributed with discussions and seminars. Some of these seminars are also included in these Proceedings. The Institute was an important opportunity to discuss latest developments and emerging perspectives on the use of laser sources and optoelectronic techniques for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Over the last ten years, the ARM architecture has become one of the most pervasive architectures in the world, with more than 2 billion ARM-based processors embedded in products ranging from cell phones to automotive braking systems. A world-wide community of ARM developers in semiconductor and product design companies includes software developers, system designers and hardware engineers. To date no book has directly addressed their need to develop the system and software for an ARM-based system. This text fills that gap. This book provides a comprehensive description of the operation of the ARM core from a developer’s perspective with a clear emphasis on software. It demonstrates not only how to write efficient ARM software in C and assembly but also how to optimize code. Example code throughout the book can be integrated into commercial products or used as templates to enable quick creation of productive software. The book covers both the ARM and Thumb instruction sets, covers Intel's XScale Processors, outlines distinctions among the versions of the ARM architecture, demonstrates how to implement DSP algorithms, explains exception and interrupt handling, describes the cache technologies that surround the ARM cores as well as the most efficient memory management techniques. A final chapter looks forward to the future of the ARM architecture considering ARMv6, the latest change to the instruction set, which has been designed to improve the DSP and media processing capabilities of the architecture. * No other book describes the ARM core from a system and software perspective. * Author team combines extensive ARM software engineering experience with an in-depth knowledge of ARM developer needs. * Practical, executable code is fully explained in the book and available on the publisher's Website. * Includes a simple embedded operating system.
