Real-world Interfacing with Your PC
If you're an electronics hobbyist, it's probably a good bet that among your electronic gadgets is a personal computer. It's also a good bet that you'd like to use that PC for more than word processing and game playing. The thing that's held you back is a basic understanding of how to get electronic signals in and out of your PC. Real-World Interfacing With Your PC, Second Edition provides you with all the information you need to use your PC's parallel port as a gateway to real world electronic interfacing. In addition to the hardware basics, this book provides you with a basic understanding of writing software to control that hardware. Real-World Interfacing With Your PC also walks you through an actual project, from design to construction and checkout. As you go through designing, building, and testing an Analog-to-Digital converter, you'll put your new-found knowledge to practical use. If you're not an experienced electronics builder, there's a chapter on project construction techniques and a project builder's checklist for easy reference. Real-World Interfacing With Your PC even gets you on the way to your next project, and recommends a "starter" inventory of electronic parts and how to market your best ideas. So now, when someone asks you which book to read to get information on how to interface with the real world with a PC, you can answer, "Real-World Interfacing With Your PC!"
