This book presents comprehensive coverage of linear control systems along with an introduction to digital control systems. It is designed for undergraduate courses in control systems taught in departments of electrical engineering, electronics and instrumentation, electronics and communication, instrumentation and control, and computer science and engineering.

The text discusses the important concepts of control systems, transfer functions and system components. It describes system stability, employing the Hurwitz–Routh stability criterion, root locus technique, Bode plot, and polar and Nyquist plots. In addition, this student-friendly book features in-depth coverage of controllers, compensators, state-space modelling and discrete time systems.

KEY FEATURES

•Includes a brief tutorial on MATLAB in an appendix to help students learn how to use it for the analysis and design of control systems.

•Provides an abundance of worked-out examples and review questions culled from university examination papers.

•Gives answers to selected chapter-end questions at the end of the book.

The fourth edition of this highly readable and well-received book presents the subject of measurement and instrumentation systems as an integrated and coherent text suitable for a one-semester course for undergraduate students of Instrumentation Engineering, as well as for instrumentation course/paper for Electrical/Electronics disciplines. Modern scientific world requires an increasing number of complex measurements and instruments. The subject matter of this well-planned text is designed to ensure that the students gain a thorough understanding of the concepts and principles of measurement of physical quantities and the related transducers and instruments. This edition retains all the features of its previous editions viz. plenty of worked-out examples, review questions culled from examination papers of various universities for practice and the solutions to numerical problems and other additional information in appendices. NEW TO THIS EDITION Besides the inclusion of a new chapter on Hazardous Areas and Instrumentation(Chapter 15), various new sections have been added and existing sections modified in the following chapters: Chapter 3 Linearisation and Spline interpolation Chapter 5 Classifications of transducers, Hall effect, Piezoresistivity, Surface acoustic waves, Optical effects (This chapter has been thoroughly modified) Chapter 6 Proximitys sensors Chapter 8 Hall effect and Saw transducers Chapter 9 Proving ring, Prony brake, Industrial weighing systems, Tachometers Chapter 10 ITS-90, SAW thermometer Chapter 12 Glass gauge, Level switches, Zero suppression and Zero elevation, Level switches Chapter 13 The section on ISFET has been modified substantially
"This is the most important book on Silicon Valley I've read in two decades. It will take us all back to our roots in the counterculture, and will remind us of the true nature of the innovation process, before we tried to tame it with slogans and buzzwords." -- Po Bronson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nudist on the Late Shift and Nurtureshock
A candid, colorful, and comprehensive oral history that reveals the secrets of Silicon Valley -- from the origins of Apple and Atari to the present day clashes of Google and Facebook, and all the start-ups and disruptions that happened along the way.
Rarely has one economy asserted itself as swiftly--and as aggressively--as the entity we now know as Silicon Valley. Built with a seemingly permanent culture of reinvention, Silicon Valley does not fight change; it embraces it, and now powers the American economy and global innovation.

So how did this omnipotent and ever-morphing place come to be? It was not by planning. It was, like many an empire before it, part luck, part timing, and part ambition. And part pure, unbridled genius...

Drawing on over two hundred in-depth interviews, VALLEY OF GENIUS takes readers from the dawn of the personal computer and the internet, through the heyday of the web, up to the very moment when our current technological reality was invented. It interweaves accounts of invention and betrayal, overnight success and underground exploits, to tell the story of Silicon Valley like it has never been told before. Read it to discover the stories that Valley insiders tell each other: the tall tales that are all, improbably, true.
“A charming account of one of the twentieth century’s most distinguished scientists…a modern-day Da Vinci” (Fortune) whose insights stand behind every computer built, email sent, video streamed, and webpage loaded—“without Shannon, the digital revolution would have ground to a halt” (The Wall Street Journal).

Claude Shannon was a groundbreaking polymath, a brilliant tinkerer, and a digital pioneer. He constructed a fleet of customized unicycles and a flamethrowing trumpet, outfoxed Vegas casinos, and built juggling robots. He also wrote the seminal text of the digital revolution, which has been called “the Magna Carta of the Information Age.” His discoveries would lead contemporaries to compare him to Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton. His work anticipated by decades the world we’d be living in today—and gave mathematicians and engineers the tools to bring that world to pass.

In this “welcome and inspiring account of a largely unsung hero” (Kirkus Reviews), Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman reveal Claude Shannon’s full story for the first time. It’s the story of a small-town Michigan boy whose career stretched from the era of room-sized computers powered by gears and string to the age of Apple. It’s the story of the origins of our digital world in the tunnels of MIT and the “idea factory” of Bell Labs, in the “scientists’ war” with Nazi Germany, and in the work of Shannon’s collaborators and rivals, thinkers like Alan Turing, John von Neumann, Vannevar Bush, and Norbert Wiener. And it’s the story of Shannon’s life as an often reclusive, always playful genius. “We owe Claude Shannon a lot, and Soni and Goodman’s book takes a big first step in paying that debt” (San Francisco Review of Books).

With access to Shannon’s family and friends, A Mind at Play is “a boon for those eager to know more about his incredibly influential life—whimsical, independent and curiosity-driven...a vivid portrayal” (Nature).
The development of HIV protease inhibitors (PIs) and their inclusion in highly active antiretroviral therapies (HAARTs) marked the beginning of a treatment breakthrough in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The HAART treatment regimen can cut HIV viral load to undetectable levels. Nonetheless, the rapid emergence of HIV drug resistance has continued to seriously compromise long-term treatment options for HIV-infected patients. Our structure-based design strategy to develop PIs that specifically target the enzyme's backbone atoms has resulted in a number of very potent inhibitors with superior drug resistance profiles. Of particular note, our development of stereochemically defined bis(tetrahydrofuranyl) urethane as a high-affinity P2 ligand has led to the development of exceedingly potent inhibitors. One of these inhibitors, darunavir, has shown exceptional potency against the HIV-1 virus and superior activity against multi-PI-resistant viral strains. Our backbone binding strategy was corroborated with detailed crystal structure analyses of darunavir-bound protease complexes which revealed a series of conserved interactions between the inhibitor and key backbone atoms of HIV-1 protease. Darunavir first received accelerated US Food and Drug Administration approval in 2006 for highly treatment-experienced patients with little therapeutic options. It has now become a leading PI in the fight against HIV infection and drug resistance.
