USB Design by Example: A Practical Guide to Building I/O Devices (2nd Edition)

USB Design by Example is an excellent approach to using USB - designs by example. I have tried several of the examples in both VB and VC++, and both are superb. On the embedded side, the explanations are both thorough and understandable. I had a question about one of the example programs, so I emailed John, expecting an auto-response or hearing back in a week or so. He responded in ten minutes with the solution. This is for a novice ...

Build Your Own Electric Vehicle

The first edition has saved me much heartache in my building a converted vehicle. I used the basic schematic for laying out the system (with slight modification, being I don't use a DC/DC charger for my 12VDC low volt system). As for the technical aspects, we as a 'modern tech society' I think too often that we must 'have it all handed to us' and sometimes an author realizes that people working with such tech, will have to research o...

Schaum's Outline of Digital Signal Processing

This text was recommended as a companion to Oppenheim's "Discrete Time Signal Processing" for a senior DSP filtering course. If your school is like mine, you sit in three hours of lecture a week, nodding and agreeing and feeling like DSP is straightforward and intuitive. Then you sit down to do your homework and wonder, "where did this come from?" Schaum's helps to bridge this gap with compartmentalized topics and numerous examples. ...
