The computer bus is the foundation of the modern computer. Without busses, a computer would just be a bundle of components. As more and more equipment becomes interface driven-either through controllers or directly to and from PCs-the question of which bus to use becomes increasingly important.
Computer Busses has been designed to help answer that question. It is a comprehensive guide to busses, from the high-level software interface to the low-level, electrical characteristics and will help you choose the most appropriate bus for each particular application. The author uses a top-down approach and organizes his presentation into five main areas:
PC interfaces, Local busses, Instrumentation busses, Network busses, Bus programming and protocols.
Plenty of real-life case studies and application-specific programming examples make Computer Busses an essential reference for engineers, system architects, designers, and technicians, and required reading for students doing project work in electronic design, software engineering, and the range of related disciplines.
