When PCs and peripherals began showing up with USB ports in the late 1990s, many predicted that legacy serial (COM) ports would soon be obsolete. The predictions were wrong. While most standard peripherals now use USB, serial ports are the interface of choice for devices that require simple programming, long cables, operation in harsh environments, or basic networking capabilities. Serial ports are more versatile then ever due to developments such as USB virtual COM ports, the .NET SerialPort class, enhanced microcontroller USARTs, and new wireless interfaces. Serial Port Complete Second Edition is a completely revised and updated guide to programming and interfacing to COM ports, USB virtual COM ports, and serial ports in embedded systems. Author Jan Axelson shows how to: § Access COM ports using the SerialPort class in Microsoft’s .NET Framework. § Program embedded systems for serial-port communications. § Design and program USB devices accessed as virtual COM ports. § Upgrade RS-232 designs to USB with no changes to host software or device firmware. § Design circuits for electrically harsh environments. § Create serial networks of embedded systems and PCs. § Use serial ports in wireless links. Example code is provided for PCs and embedded systems in both Basic and C/C#. The author maintains a website with articles, program code, and other links of interest to developers of serial-port applications (janaxelson.com).

Developers who design and program USB devices have a new resource in the fifth edition of USB Complete: The Developer's Guide. This edition adds an introduction to USB 3.1 and SuperSpeedPlus bus, which offers a 2x increase in bus speed over USB 3.0’s SuperSpeed. For designs that don't require USB 3.1’s capabilities, the book also covers USB 2.0 technology and applications. USB Complete Fifth Edition bridges the gap between the technical specifications and the real world of design and programming. Author Jan Axelson distills the fundamentals of the protocols and guides developers in choosing device hardware, deciding whether to target a USB class driver or another host driver, and writing device firmware and host applications. Example code in Visual C# shows how to detect and access USB devices and how to program and communicate with vendor-defined devices that use the human-interface-device (HID) class driver and Microsoft’s WinUSB driver. Also covered are how to use bus power, including new advanced power delivery capabilities, wireless communications for USB devices, and developing embedded hosts, including dual-role USB On-The-Go devices. Programmers and hardware designers can rely on USB Complete’s Fifth Edition to help get projects up and running quickly. Students and hobbyists will learn how to use the interface built into every PC. Instructors will find inspiration and guidance for class projects.

Rapid Prototyping of Digital Systems: Quartus II Edition provides an exciting and challenging laboratory component for undergraduate digital logic and computer design courses using FPGAs and CAD tools for simulation and hardware implementation. The more advanced topics and exercises also make this text useful for upper level courses in digital logic, programmable logic, and embedded systems. This new version of the widely used Rapid Prototyping of Digital Systems, Second Edition, now uses Altera's new Quartus II CAD tool and includes laboratory projects for Altera's UP 2 and the new UP 3 FPGA board. Rapid Prototyping of Digital Systems: Quartus II Edition includes four tutorials on the Altera Quartus II and NIOS II tool environment, an overview of programmable logic, and IP cores with several easy-to-use input and output functions. These features were developed to help students get started quickly. Early design examples use schematic capture and IP cores developed for the Altera UP FPGA boards. VHDL is used for more complex designs after a short introduction to VHDL-based synthesis. New to this edition is an overview of System-on-a-Programmable Chip (SOPC) technology and SOPC design examples for the UP3 using Altera's new NIOS II Processor hardware and C software development tools.
