Overview

Today’s control system designers face an ever-increasing “need for speed” and accuracy in their system measurements and computations. New design approaches using microcontrollers and DSP are emerging, and designers must understand these new approaches, the tools available, and how best to apply them.

This practical text covers the latest techniques in microcontroller-based control system design, making use of the popular MSP430 microcontroller from Texas Instruments.

The book covers all the circuits of the system, including:
· Sensors and their output signals
· Design and application of signal conditioning circuits
· A-to-D and D-to-A circuit design
· Operation and application of the powerful and popular TI MSP430 microcontroller
· Data transmission circuits
· System power control circuitry

Written by an experienced microcontroller engineer and textbook author, the book is lavishly illustrated and includes numerous specific circuit design examples, including a fully tested and documented hands-on project using the MSP430 that makes use of the principles described. For students, engineers, technicians, and hobbyists, this practical text provides the answers you need to design modern control systems quickly and easily.

* Seasoned Texas Instruments designer provides a ground-up perspective on embedded control systems

* Pedagogical style provides a self-learning approach with examples, quizzes and review features

* Accompanying companion website contains source code and more!

    I expected a reference for engineers

    It looks like J. Luecke has the knowledge and experience to do the topic justice, but he did not deliver in this book. Over 28% of the content is available for free download from the TI web site. Most of the downloaded content is specific to the MSP430X1XX family. The project is based on a board that most readers will not build rather than the standard development boards sold by TI. The book does contain some good background information about data communications and sensors, but doesn't take the sensors all the way through into a data register in the microcontroller. MSP430 peripherals are very poorly covered. There is no coverage of on chip ADC and DAC functions. New families of the MSP430 are not discussed. Advantages and disadvantages of sensor measurement circuits are not discussed. A non-linear, voltage divider circuit for measuring a sensor that varies in resistance isn't likely to make it into a real application. Accuracy, stability, and calibration are not covered. Content about how a microcontroller works should be seperated out into a beginner's book. The audience for this book is mostly engineers developing serious applications. The book seems to have been written for high school electronics students. I hope the author makes a 2nd edition to eliminate the book's many shortcomings.
