Overview

author's successful Applied PC Interfacing, Graphics and Interrupts this book covers all the different aspects of computer systems from low-level hardware (such as processors and interface devices) to high-level software (such as Win32 programming). Clearly written with easy-to-understand examples and end-of chapter exercises PC Interfacing, Communications and Windows Programming is the book for you if you have every wondered:

  • How do I communicate using the serial port?
  • How do I communicate using the parallel port?
  • How do I write interrupt-driven software?
  • How do I communicate over a network?
