Now you can create your own PC-based digital design workstation! As an electronics hobbyist and PC owner, you probably own a digital multimeter and a logic probe. These inexpensive test and measurement instruments provide enough test "muscle" for many tasks, but just don't have enough capability for serious work in the world of digital electronics. What you really need are a logic analyzer and a multipath continuity tester - key tools for troubleshooting digital circuits and testing your printer, fax, modem, and other multiconductor cables. Using commonly available components and standard construction techniques, PC Hardware Projects, Volume 1 will guide you through the construction of an 8-In/8-Out channel logic analyzer (8/8CLA) and a 25-line multipath continuity tester (MCT25). Once you're done, you'll be able to put them to immediate use with the full-featured software included with the book. You will also be able to combine the 8/8CLA, the MCT25, an appropriate power supply, and a prototyping solderless breadboard system into a single digital workstation interface. PC Hardware Projects, Volume 1 guides you through every step of the construction process, and shows you how to check your progress. So, get out your soldering iron and follow PC Hardware Projects, Volume 1 to build two neat accessories for your PC!
