Embedded Systems Handbook,: Embedded Systems Design and by Yan Zhang, Hsiao-Hwa Chen

By Yan Zhang, Hsiao-Hwa Chen

Considered a customary source, the Embedded structures Handbook supplied researchers and technicians with the authoritative info had to release a wealth of various functions, together with these in car electronics, commercial computerized structures, and construction automation and regulate. Now a brand new source is needed to file on present advancements and supply a technical reference for these seeking to movement the sector ahead once more. Divided into volumes to deal with this progress, the Embedded platforms guide, moment Edition provides a finished view in this region of machine engineering with a presently acceptable emphasis on advancements in networking and purposes. these specialists at once all in favour of the production and evolution of the information and applied sciences provided provide tutorials, learn surveys, and know-how overviews that discover state of the art advancements and deployments and determine strength tendencies.

This first self-contained quantity of the handbook, Embedded structures layout and Verification, is split into 3 sections. It starts with a short creation to embedded structures layout and verification. It then presents a entire assessment of embedded processors and numerous facets of system-on-chip and FPGA, in addition to recommendations to layout demanding situations. the ultimate part explores power-aware embedded computing, layout matters particular to safe embedded structures, and net providers for embedded units.

Those attracted to taking their paintings with embedded structures to the community point should still whole their learn with the second one quantity: community Embedded Systems.

Microwave and Wireless Synthesizers: Theory and Design by Ulrich L. Rohde

By Ulrich L. Rohde

During the last decade, nice strides were made within the know-how of microwave oscillators and synthesizers, with electronic frequency synthesizers specifically attracting a lot recognition. those synthesizers are actually getting used in almost all glossy sign turbines and radio communique gear. earlier, notwithstanding, unique information regarding their layout has been challenging to come back by-much of it scattered via magazine articles-and so much books at the topic have taken a basically theoretical procedure. input Microwave and instant Synthesizers-the first e-book to stress either sensible circuit info from RF to millimeter-wave frequencies and up to date conception. in keeping with path fabric taught via writer Ulrich L. Rohde at George Washington collage and up to date paintings performed by way of the writer at Compact software program, Inc. and Synergy Microwave company, this quantity is a whole revision and replace of Rohde's landmark textual content, electronic PLL Frequency Synthesizers: thought and layout. whereas it offers the entire precious conception and formulation, it additionally bargains an in-depth examine the sensible facet of the phase-lock loop (PLL) in synthesizers-including specified loops, loop parts, and useful circuits-material that isn't on hand in the other publication. Rohde explains loop basics, demonstrates the linear method of oscillator section noise, discusses the electronic direct synthesizer approach, addresses low noise oscillator layout, and offers perception into the function and layout of crystal oscillators, mixers, phase/frequency discriminators, wideband high-gain amplifiers, programmable dividers, and loop filters. He is going directly to disguise traditional multiloop synthesizers and survey present state of the art microwave synthesizer functions. wide appendices assessment the maths of worthwhile capabilities and diverse functions, together with even the complicated nonlinear thought of noise in huge sign platforms comparable to mixers and oscillators. Microwave and instant Synthesizers permits somebody with a laptop working both home windows 3.11 or home windows NT to discover real-world layout. It makes use of courses for the answer of electronic phase-lock loop structures, tabulates the consequences, and exhibits how Bode diagrams are decided via the computer's picture functions. it's also examples utilizing commercially on hand linear and nonlinear CAD courses to supply exact evaluate and optimization of oscillators and different valuable circuits and lots of sensible charts. for firms interested in attempt and conversation gear, this e-book reduces layout and study expenditures by means of offering a lot of confirmed circuits and expediting the layout method. it's also an exceptional senior/graduate point textbook for electric engineering scholars and a useful source for working towards engineers, senior engineers, and executives who want to have the capacity to evaluation new tendencies and methods within the box.

One Good Turn: A Natural History of the Screwdriver and the by Witold Rybczynski

By Witold Rybczynski

Publish yr note: First released in 2000
------------------------

The top software of the Millennium

The seeds of Rybczynski's based and illuminating new booklet have been sown through The long island Times, whose editors requested him to jot down an essay picking "the most sensible instrument of the millennium." An award-winning writer who as soon as equipped a home utilizing purely hand instruments, Rybczynski has intimate wisdom of the toolbox — either its contents and its background — which serves him superbly on his quest.

One stable Turn is a narrative starring Archimedes, who invented the water screw and brought the helix, and Leonardo, who sketched a desktop for carving wooden screws. it's a tale of mechanical discovery and genius that takes readers from historical Greece to automobile layout within the age of yank undefined. Rybczynski writes an ode to the screw, with no which there will be no telescope, no microscope — briefly, no enlightenment technology. one in every of our most interesting cultural and architectural historians, Rybczynski renders a swish, unique, and interesting portrait of the instrument that modified the process civilization.

CUDA by Example: An Introduction to General-Purpose GPU by Jason Sanders, Edward Kandrot

By Jason Sanders, Edward Kandrot

"This ebook is needed interpreting for a person operating with accelerator-based computing systems."
–From the Foreword through Jack Dongarra, college of Tennessee and Oak Ridge nationwide Laboratory
CUDA is a computing structure designed to facilitate the improvement of parallel courses. along side a complete software program platform, the CUDA structure allows programmers to attract at the colossal strength of images processing devices (GPUs) while development high-performance functions. GPUs, in fact, have lengthy been on hand for hard snap shots and online game functions. CUDA now brings this important source to programmers engaged on purposes in different domain names, together with technology, engineering, and finance. No wisdom of portraits programming is required–just the power to software in a modestly prolonged model of C.

[b]CUDA by means of Example,[/b] written through senior individuals of the CUDA software program platform group, exhibits programmers tips on how to hire this new know-how. The authors introduce every one sector of CUDA improvement via operating examples. After a concise creation to the CUDA platform and structure, in addition to a quick-start consultant to CUDA C, the ebook information the innovations and trade-offs linked to each one key CUDA function. You'll detect while to exploit every one CUDA C extension and the way to write down CUDA software program that gives you really remarkable performance.

Major issues lined include

  • Parallel programming
  • Thread cooperation
  • consistent reminiscence and occasions
  • Texture memory
  • snap shots interoperability
  • Atomics
  • Streams
  • CUDA C on a number of GPUs
  • complicated atomics
  • extra CUDA resources

All the CUDA software program instruments you'll want are freely to be had for obtain from NVIDIA.
