About the author

Christoph J. Brabec is director of the polymer photovoltaicsprogramme at Konarka Technologies. After completing his Ph.D. in1995, he joined the group of Prof Alan Heeger at the University ofSanta Barbara, USA, for a sabbatical in 1996, and continued to workon the opto-electronic properties of organic semiconductors asassistant professor at the University of Linz with Prof. SerdarSariciftci. In 1998, he became senior scientist of the ChristianDoppler Laboratory on organic solar cells, which he left in 2001 tojoin Siemens Corporate Technology as project leader for organicsemiconductor devices. He finished his habilitation in physicalchemistry at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz in 2003, and isauthor and co-author of more than 100 papers and has filed over 30patents.

Vladimir Dyakonov is full professor of experimental physics at theUniversity of Würzburg, Germany, and scientific director ofthe Bavarian Centre of Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern) inWürzburg. He obtained his diploma degree in physics from theUniversity of Saint Petersburg, his Ph.D. from the A. F.Ioffe-Institute in Russia and his habilitation degree from theUniversity of Oldenburg, Germany in 1986, 1996 and 2001,respectively. From 1996 to 1998, he worked as post-doctoral fellowat the universities of Antwerp, Belgium, and Linz, Austria.

Ullrich Scherf is full professor for Macromolecular Chemistry atBergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany. He studied chemistryat Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany, obtaining hisPh.D. in 1988 and subsequently spent one year at the Institute forAnimal Physiology of the Saxonian Academy of Sciences in Leipzig.He joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz in1990 and completed his habilitation in 1996 on polyarylene-typeladder polymers. He followed a call to the University of Potsdam,Germany, onto a professorship for polymer chemistry. He haspublished over 350 refereed papers and received theMeyer-Struckmann Research Award in 1998.

Electrical Engineering 101 covers the basic theory and practice of electronics, starting by answering the question "What is electricity?" It goes on to explain the fundamental principles and components, relating them constantly to real-world examples. Sections on tools and troubleshooting give engineers deeper understanding and the know-how to create and maintain their own electronic design projects. Unlike other books that simply describe electronics and provide step-by-step build instructions, EE101 delves into how and why electricity and electronics work, giving the reader the tools to take their electronics education to the next level. It is written in a down-to-earth style and explains jargon, technical terms and schematics as they arise. The author builds a genuine understanding of the fundamentals and shows how they can be applied to a range of engineering problems.

This third edition includes more real-world examples and a glossary of formulae. It contains new coverage of:

MicrocontrollersFPGAsClasses of componentsMemory (RAM, ROM, etc.)Surface mountHigh speed designBoard layoutAdvanced digital electronics (e.g. processors)Transistor circuits and circuit designOp-amp and logic circuitsUse of test equipmentGives readers a simple explanation of complex concepts, in terms they can understand and relate to everyday life. Updated content throughout and new material on the latest technological advances.Provides readers with an invaluable set of tools and references that they can use in their everyday work.
This new edition has been fully revised and updated to include extensive information on the ARM Cortex-M4 processor, providing a complete up-to-date guide to both Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processors, and which enables migration from various processor architectures to the exciting world of the Cortex-M3 and M4.

This book presents the background of the ARM architecture and outlines the features of the processors such as the instruction set, interrupt-handling and also demonstrates how to program and utilize the advanced features available such as the Memory Protection Unit (MPU).

Chapters on getting started with IAR, Keil, gcc and CooCox CoIDE tools help beginners develop program codes. Coverage also includes the important areas of software development such as using the low power features, handling information input/output, mixed language projects with assembly and C, and other advanced topics.

Two new chapters on DSP features and CMSIS-DSP software libraries, covering DSP fundamentals and how to write DSP software for the Cortex-M4 processor, including examples of using the CMSIS-DSP library, as well as useful information about the DSP capability of the Cortex-M4 processor

A new chapter on the Cortex-M4 floating point unit and how to use it

A new chapter on using embedded OS (based on CMSIS-RTOS), as well as details of processor features to support OS operations

Various debugging techniques as well as a troubleshooting guide in the appendix

topics on software porting from other architectures

A full range of easy-to-understand examples, diagrams and quick reference appendices
