Publisher: Morgan Kaufmann
Computers as Components, Second Edition, updates the first book to bring essential knowledge on embedded systems technology and techniques under a single cover. This edition has been updated to the state-of-the-art by reworking and expanding performance analysis with more examples and exercises, and coverage of electronic systems now focuses on the latest applications. It gives a more comprehensive view of multiprocessors including VLIW and superscalar architectures as well as more detail about power consumption. There is also more advanced treatment of all the components of the system as well as in-depth coverage of networks, reconfigurable systems, hardware-software co-design, security, and program analysis. It presents an updated discussion of current industry development software including Linux and Windows CE. The new edition's case studies cover SHARC DSP with the TI C5000 and C6000 series, and real-world applications such as DVD players and cell phones. Researchers, students, and savvy professionals schooled in hardware or software design, will value Wayne Wolf's integrated engineering design approach. * Uses real processors (ARM processor and TI C55x DSP) to demonstrate both technology and techniques...Shows readers how to apply principles to actual design practice. * Covers all necessary topics with emphasis on actual design practice...Realistic introduction to the state-of-the-art for both students and practitioners. * Stresses necessary fundamentals which can be applied to evolving technologies...helps readers gain facility to design large, complex embedded systems that actually work.

This textbook provides practicing scientists and engineers an advanced treatment of the Atmel AVR microcontroller. This book is intended as a follow-on to a previously published book, titled Atmel AVR Microcontroller Primer: Programming and Interfacing. Some of the content from this earlier text is retained for completeness. This book will emphasize advanced programming and interfacing skills. We focus on system level design consisting of several interacting microcontroller subsystems. The first chapter discusses the system design process. Our approach is to provide the skills to quickly get up to speed to operate the internationally popular Atmel AVR microcontroller line by developing systems level design skills. We use the Atmel ATmega164 as a representative sample of the AVR line. The knowledge you gain on this microcontroller can be easily translated to every other microcontroller in the AVR line. In succeeding chapters, we cover the main subsystems aboard the microcontroller, providing a short theory section followed by a description of the related microcontroller subsystem with accompanying software for the subsystem. We then provide advanced examples exercising some of the features discussed. In all examples, we use the C programming language. The code provided can be readily adapted to the wide variety of compilers available for the Atmel AVR microcontroller line. We also include a chapter describing how to interface the microcontroller to a wide variety of input and output devices. The book concludes with several detailed system level design examples employing the Atmel AVR microcontroller.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
An accessible treatment of the modeling and solution of integerprogramming problems, featuring modern applications andsoftware In order to fully comprehend the algorithms associated withinteger programming, it is important to understand not onlyhow algorithms work, but also why they work.Applied Integer Programming features a unique emphasis onthis point, focusing on problem modeling and solution usingcommercial software. Taking an application-oriented approach, thisbook addresses the art and science of mathematical modeling relatedto the mixed integer programming (MIP) framework and discusses thealgorithms and associated practices that enable those models to besolved most efficiently. The book begins with coverage of successful applications,systematic modeling procedures, typical model types, transformationof non-MIP models, combinatorial optimization problem models, andautomatic preprocessing to obtain a better formulation. Subsequentchapters present algebraic and geometric basic concepts of linearprogramming theory and network flows needed for understandinginteger programming. Finally, the book concludes with classical andmodern solution approaches as well as the key components forbuilding an integrated software system capable of solvinglarge-scale integer programming and combinatorial optimizationproblems. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate essential conceptsthrough numerous examples and figures. Each new concept oralgorithm is accompanied by a numerical example, and, whereapplicable, graphics are used to draw together diverse problems orapproaches into a unified whole. In addition, features of solutionapproaches found in today's commercial software are identifiedthroughout the book. Thoroughly classroom-tested, Applied Integer Programmingis an excellent book for integer programming courses at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as awell-organized reference for professionals, software developers,and analysts who work in the fields of applied mathematics,computer science, operations research, management science, andengineering and use integer-programming techniques to model andsolve real-world optimization problems.

Since its first volume in 1960, Advances in Computers has presented detailed coverage of innovations in hardware and software and in computer theory, design, and applications. It has also provided contributorswith a medium in which they can examine their subjects in greater depth and breadth than that allowed by standard journal articles. As a result, many articles have become standard references that continue to be of significant, lasting value despite the rapid growth taking place in the field.

This collection contains key critical essays and assessments of the writings of Canadian communications thinker Marshall McLuhan selected from the voluminous output of the past forty years. McLuhan's famous aphorisms and uncanny ability to sense megatrends are once again in circulation across and beyond the disciplines. Since his untimely death in 1980, McLuhan's ideas have been rediscovered and redeployed with urgency in the age of information and cybernation.Together the three volumes organise and present some forty years of indispensable critical works for readers and researchers of the McLuhan legacy. The set includes critical introductions to each section by the editor.Forthcoming titles in this series include Walter Benjamin (0-415-32533-1) December 2004, 3 vols, Theodor Adorno (0-415-30464-4) April 2005, 4 vols and Jean-Francois Lyotard (0-415-33819-0) 2005, 3 vols.
