Data Acquisition Techniques Using Personal Computers contains all the information required by a technical professional (engineer, scientist, technician) to implement a PC-based acquisition system. Including both basic tutorial information as well as some advanced topics, this work is suitable as a reference book for engineers or as a supplemental text for engineering students. It gives the reader enough understanding of the topics to implement a data acquisition system based on commercial products. A reader can alternatively learn how to custom build hardware or write his or her own software. Featuring diverse information, this book will be useful to both the technical professional and the hobbyist. Key Features * Contains tables of reference information on PC/XT/AT computers that are usually not found in a single source * Includes hardware information, such as I/O addresses, memory maps, and hardware interrupts * Discusses software reference material including BIOS and DOS interrupt calls * Presents valuable hardware interface information including timing diagrams, design examples, and descriptions of standard interfaces, such as the RS-232 serial interfaceA popular IC used for digital I/O is the Intel 8255A Programmable Peripheral Interface (PPI), whose block diagram is shown in Figure 11-2. This device has three 8-bit ports that can be programmed for one of three modes: simple, unidirectionalanbsp;...
