Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Mike Tooley’s book is a good practical introduction on how to use a computer to control and monitor external transducers and sensors. The content of the book fully justifies the author’s claim that it provides sufficient information to make an informed decision on which hardware and software is needed to implement a range of instrumentation and control systems.”
— Mike Button, Media Electronics World, March 2006
Booknews
Uses working, proven circuit examples to explain how to select and configure a control system based on readily available software and hardware. Covers programming in assembly language, BASIC, and C, the IEEE-488 bus, interfacing, software packages, and applications, and offers appendices on SI units, multiples and sub-multiples, and decimal, binary, hexadecimal and ASCII tables. This second edition adds new software routines and a new chapter on configuration and optimization. Contains a few b&w photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
