  Beginning Arduino
McRoberts M.,  Apress, Berkeley, CA, 2010. 472 pp. Type: Book (978-1-430232-40-7)

Many experimental microcontroller boards are available for purchase. However, none seem to be as popular with nonelectronics hobbyists as the Arduino board. The main reason for its popularity is probably its openness. The Arduino hardware referenc...

  Our molecular future: how nanotechnology, robotics, genetics, and artificial intelligence will transform our world
Mulhall D.,  Prometheus Books, Publishers, 2002. 300 pp. Type: Book (9781573929929)

In the preface of this book, the author acknowledges that since the ideas proposed may seem like science fiction, one should keep an open mind. The book does indeed initially fit this description. However, after evaluating the substantial evidenc...

  The complexity of simple computer architectures
Müller S., Paul W. (ed),  Springer-Verlag New York, Inc., Secaucus, NJ, 1995.Type: Book (9783540605805)

The authors develop a formal model that enables designers to evaluate cost (component cost) and cycle time of a simple computer, which in turn can shed light on the cost-effectiveness of a design. They were motivated by the lack of a formal model ...

  Pipelined H-trees for high-speed clocking of large integrated systems in presence of process variations
Nekili M., Bois G., Savaria Y.  IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems 5(2): 161-174, 1997. Type: Article

A novel solution to the problem of clocking large, high-speed digital systems is presented in this paper. The authors suggest a new deterministic mathematical model for clock skew, modifying a known method for clocking large digital systems. The k...

  A New Approach to Fixed-Coefficient Inner Product Computation Over Finite Rings
Wrzyszcz A., Milford D., Dagless E.  IEEE Transactions on Computers 45(12): 1345-1355, 1996. Type: Article

The authors promote the residue number system for certain applications in digital signal processors (DSPs). They propose a new method of computing the fixed-coefficient inner product over finite rings using full adder networks, based on work they ...

  Modern information systems for managers
Bidgoli H.,  Academic Press, Inc., Orlando, FL, 1997.Type: Book (9780120959709)

This nontechnical survey of information technology is suitable for readers with no previous knowledge of the subject. A large number of topics are skimmed rather than fully discussed, so readers with scientific backgrounds are likely to lose inter...

  Microprocessor architecture and microprogramming
Carter J.,  Prentice-Hall, Inc., Upper Saddle River, NJ, 1995.Type: Book (9780131922532)

Notwithstanding the author’s intention to write a text for an undergraduate program in computer engineering technology or electrical engineering technology, I find the treatment of the material wholly underwhelming. After even a partial read...

  Programmable controllers (2nd ed.)
George L. J.,  McGraw-Hill, Inc., New York, NY, 1994.Type: Book (9780070042148)

According to its introduction, this book has a modest objective. It was written to give technicians, engineering aides (consistently misspelled as “aids”), and engineers who know something about electricity and about an industrial proc...

  X-Ware Reliability and Availability Modeling
Laprie J., Kanoun K.  IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering 18(2): 130-147, 1992. Type: Article

If you are interested in mathematical models of the dependability of hardware and software systems, you should certainly read this paper. The authors’ conclusion that “it is theoretically possible to perform reliability and availabilit...

  Exploration and innovation in design
Navinchandra D.,  Springer-Verlag New York, Inc., New York, NY, 1991.Type: Book (9780387974811)

A design process has two major phases, conceptual design and detailed design. The major emphasis has been on the detailed design phase, such as VLSI chip layout and fabrication, structural design, and computer-aided drafting. The earlier phases of...
