I2C Bus Books

[Parallel Port] [Serial Port] [USB]

I2C Bus from Theory to Practice

The I2C Bus from Theory to Practice

Using the world of micro-controller-managed serial buses, this user-friendly guide offers comprehensive coverage of the theory essential to design the best possible communications bus for any application. Examines typical industrial and consumer applications and offers examples of modular solutions at various levels of complexity, in four sections on protocol, components, applications (with complete circuit diagrams), and development tools . The accompanying disk contains software for the I2C bus.

Parallel Port Books

[I2C] [Serial Port] [USB]

Parallel Port Complete: Programming, Interfacing & Using the PC'S Parallel Printer Port

Personal Engineering and Instrumentation News, Paul Schreier, May 1997
An excellent resource for Visual Basic programmers looking to interface hardware through standard ports. Anyone designing hardware to work with a parallel port is well advised to add this book to their library.

Programming the Parallel Port: Interfacing the PC for Data Acquisition & Process Control

Why purchase expensive add-on cards or bus interfaces when you can develop effective and economical data acquisition and process controls using C programs? Using the under employed printer adapter (that is, the parallel port of your PC, you can turn your computer into a powerful tool for developing microprocessor applications. Learn how to build a complete data acquisition system and such varied applications as a CCD camera controller, a photometer interface, and a wave form generator. The book also covers the Enhanced Parallel Port (EPP), the Extended Capabilities Port (ECP), interfacing Analog to Digital converters, and data acquisition under Linux. This extraordinary software approach to interfacing through the parallel port will be especially appealing to programmers involved in control systems design and device development, as well as to those who work with real-time and embedded systems.

Serial Port Books

[I2C] [Parallel Port] [USB]

Serial Port Complete

Test & Measurement World, October 1998
The part of the book I liked most comes in the section that describes how to connect serial devices. Axelson covers not only RS-232 communications but also RS-485, a serial standard that allows for party-line or multi-drop connections. You would spend a lot of time looking for all the information that the book collects in one place. If you plan to use a serial port in any sort of application, buy this book. It should go on your bookshelf alongside Axelson's earlier book, Parallel Port Complete.

"If you want to add the Universal Serial Bus to your repertoire, then this is the book for you."
Midwest Book Review
An excellent and highly recommended "how to" guide and reference.
