Overview

*The essential pocket reference for engineers and students
• Interfacing in action: PCs, PLCs, transducers and instrumentation in one book
• Develop systems and applications that work with Newnes Interfacing Companion

A uniquely concise and practical guide to the hardware, applications and design issues involved in computer interfacing and the use of transducers and instrumentation.

Newnes Interfacing Companion presents the essential information needed to design a PC-based interfacing system from the selection of suitable transducers, to collection of data, and the appropriate signal processing and conditioning.

Key topics are summarised in a clear and visually appealing way, usually in single or double-page sections. This makes for a book that is very easy to use and ideal for anyone pressed for time - engineers facing a deadline or students revising an interfacing course module. The mathematics and computer science is provided on a need-to-know basis, making this an essential guide for a wide range of scientists and engineers who want to harness the potential of the PC for data acquisition purposes.

Reference sections are supported by project work based round the serial port of a PC, using simple, widely available technology to illustrate key principles and techniques. Concise coverage is also given to the use of the parallel port, USB port and ADC cards. Through the lab work provided the reader is led through the process of constructing a fully functional measurement interfacing system.

Tony Fischer-Cripps is a Project Leader in the Division of Telecommunications and Industrial Physics of the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation), Australia. He was previously lecturer, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), Australia, and has also worked for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA (NIST, formerly National Bureau of Standards - NBS).

Audience: Professional engineers, technicians, undergraduate students especially those in test and measurement, instrumentational and control, and computer interfacing and technology.
