The 3rd edition of the book is intended for a one-semester course on Power Electronics and has been designed for a wide spectrum of technical users, which includes undergraduate students of Electrical, Electronics, Instrumentation and allied Engineering courses.
This book is designed for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students of electrical and electronics engineering and also for the Professionals. The objective of the book is to explain the operations of all important power semiconductor devices such as IGBTs, ETOs, IGCTs, etc., that are used to control power systems and show how the devices are used in appropriate circuit and devices. The author has tried to cover as many applications as possible and give sufficient information which can influence the students and practitioners to move towards the design of programmable power systems.

Fundamentals of Project Planning and Engineering oﬀers comprehensive and practical information to engineering students. It will serve as a database for all those who need to refer to it for a proper understanding of project management concepts. Therefore, this book incorporates the principles of project engineering namely - Need, Vision, and Delivery. This book also covers industrial application and practical problems of detail engineering design. It gives complete and concise information on every topic of the subject, which has so far never been available in consolidated form. The simple language, collective information and case study examples are a unique feature of this book.
This book presents concepts of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) using a large number of well designed and illustrative solved problems. The book covers all the aspects of Digital Signal Processing, starting from the basics, its applications and limitations, discrete-time signals & systems, frequency domain analysis, Z transform, DFT and FFT, the design of analog and digital filters and realizations of digital filters. An attempt is made to introduce newer concepts of DSP with the help of MATLAB programs. The lucid and cogent presentation of the concepts and a large number of solved problems make the book easy to understand and will help students to familiarise themselves with the subject rapidly. The MATLAB programs will help readers to correlate the theoretical and practical aspects.
Digital Signal Processing is one of the hottest areas of contemporary electronics and telecommunications and one of the toughest to master. If you are an engineer and student seeking to acquire new design skills you may have a hard time finding a practical, step-by-step approach. James Broesch has the answer you have been looking for! His book breaks into easily understood components and provides an intuitive, practical development of the major concepts
This book is for developers who are involved with designing or programming devices that use the Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface. If you are a hardware designer, if you write firmware that resides inside USB devices, or if you write applications that communicate with devices, this book is for you. The USB interface is versatile enough to serve just about any device function. Familiar USB peripherals include mice, keyboards, drives, printers, speakers, and cameras. USB is also suitable for data-acquisition units, control systems, and other devices with specialized functions, including one-of-a-kind designs. The right choices of device hardware, software drivers and development tools and techniques can help you design devices that perform their functions without errors or user aggravation. This book will guide you along the way.
Parallel Port Complete book is for programmers, hardware designers and anyone who uses the PCs parallel port to communicate with printers and other peripheral devices. The tips, tools and examples in this complete reference will save time, spark new ideas for your own projects, and help you make maximum use of all the ports abilities, including the new high-speed, bi-directional modes. Parallel Port Complete book serves as a practical, hands-on guide to all aspects of the parallel port. Parallel Port Complete book covers hardware and software, including how to design external circuits that connect to the port, as well as how to write programs to control and monitor the port, including both the original and improved port designs. Parallel Port Complete book covers all the ports modes, including the original Centronics-compatible interface and the later Byte, EPP and ECP modes. In addition to explaining what each mode can do and how it accomplishes it, the author Jan Axelson has shown how to select and use each mode on a PC.
In this second edition, the contents have been revised and updated from start to finish. One addition is example code in C/C# as well as Basic. This book includes code examples for PCs and for embedded systems (microcontrollers). Also topics on Designing and programming USB virtual COM ports, Using wireless technologies to transmit serial data, Accessing serial ports over Ethernet or Wi-Fi networks, Transferring any kind of text data using Unicode encoding are new in Second Editin.
The Microcontroller Idea Book is a hands-on guide that presents practical designs for use in data loggers, controllers, and other small-computer applications. Microcontrollers, or single-chip computers, are ideal for projects that require computer intelligence but don't need the disk drives, keyboard, and full-screen display of a desktop computer.
