Download USB complete : everything you need to develop custom USB by Jan Axelson PDF

By Jan Axelson

Who should still learn this e-book?

This e-book is for you with a purpose to understand how to layout and software a peripheral with a common Serial Bus (USB) interface, or which will understand how to speak with USB peripherals from the functions you write. those are a few of questions the publication solutions:

What is USB and the way do peripherals use it to speak with computers? There’s much to the USB interface, and figuring out how USB works is key in developing and software code that works successfully and reliably. This book’s concentration is at the sensible wisdom you’ll want in deciding on elements and writing equipment firmware to speak over the bus.

How am i able to make a decision if my venture may still use a USB interface? might be your layout isn’t fitted to USB. I’ll aid you come to a decision if it is. If the answer's certain, I’ll assist you come to a decision which of USB’s 3 speeds and 4 move varieties to take advantage of.

How do i select a USB controller chip for my peripheral layout? each USB peripheral needs to comprise an clever controller. There are dozens of controller chips designed to be used in USB peripherals. during this ebook, I examine well known chip households and provide how to come to a decision, in response to either your project’s wishes and your personal historical past and personal tastes. as with all embedded-system undertaking, constructing a USB gadget additionally calls for a improvement procedure for loading and debugging code, and that i conceal the choices right here in addition.

How do functions speak with USB peripherals? to speak with a USB peripheral, a computer wishes issues: a tool driving force that is familiar with find out how to speak with the PC’s USB drivers and an program that is aware the best way to seek advice from the gadget motive force. a few peripherals can use drivers incorporated with home windows. Others could require a customized motive force. This e-book will convey you should you can use home windows’ integrated drivers and the way to speak with units from visible uncomplicated and visible C++ functions. You’ll additionally discover what’s considering writing a tool driving force and what instruments might help to hurry up the method.

How do USB peripherals speak? USB peripherals in most cases use a mixture of and embedded code to speak with computers. during this publication, I exhibit tips to write the gadget firmware that allows home windows to spot a tool and cargo the proper gadget driving force. I additionally comprise instance firmware for replacing info with a computer.

How do I come to a decision even if my peripheral can use bus strength, or no matter if it wishes its personal provide? a major virtue to USB is that many peripherals may be powered totally from the bus. discover even if your gadget can use this strength and the way to control energy use, specifically for units that use battery energy.

How am i able to ensure my equipment will function as easily as attainable for its finish clients? at the peripheral facet, gentle operation calls for knowing the specification’s standards and the way the equipment can meet them. within the computer, right operation calls for a safely established details (INF) dossier that permits home windows to spot the equipment and software program that understands tips on how to speak with the gadget as successfully as attainable. This publication has info and examples to assist with every one of those.

What’s new within the moment variation?

In the months after the booklet of the 1st version of USB whole, a lot occurred on this planet of USB, together with the discharge of model 2.0 of the USB specification. USB 2.0 helps a bus fee of 480 Megabits in keeping with moment, 40 occasions speedier than USB 1.1. This and different advancements in and software program triggered this moment version of the ebook.

Rather than simply tacking on a bankruptcy approximately USB 2.0, I’ve revised the e-book from begin to end to mirror the alterations in 2.0. via renowned request, one other addition is visible C++ code to accompany the visible simple examples for program communications with USB units. I’ve additionally elevated the cloth approximately home windows drivers and functions to incorporate home windows 2000, and feature additional info on new controller chips and improvement instruments. different additions and updates are sprinkled all through, many triggered via reader feedback.

Download Effective GUI Testing Automation: Developing an Automated by Kanglin Li PDF

By Kanglin Li

The key difficulties i have encountered with attempt automation usually are not technical yet managerial: it is infrequent that people with the making plans and decision-making authority have the neccessary knowing of what attempt automation is and the way it suits into the development/testing cycle. it is not "sped-up guide trying out" and it is not "record and playback", even though it may well comprise components of either and extra. it is a improvement attempt in its personal correct and desires to be controlled as such.

I've used the various significant commerical automation instruments and built others in-house and none of them are the silver bullets their proprietors (and in-house evangelists) declare they're. long ago, you are going to were hard-pressed to make the case to administration for writing your personal in-house complete featured GUI checking out software. It required a developer ability set that many in QA - even these on automation groups - do not continuously have in adequate intensity (not to say the truth that, such a lot who do have the talents decide to make extra dollars over in development).

What the maturing of .NET and Microsoft's UI Automation Library have performed, i feel, is placed the writing at the wall for advertisement UI try instruments corresponding to QTP and practical Tester (WinRunner is on life-support, quickly to be removed).

As extra computing device functions themselves gravitate in the direction of .NET and, more and more, local 64-bit, advertisement instruments are suffering to maintain speed.

This booklet demonstrates the benefits automation builders have in growing their very own automation instruments for .NET-based purposes, thank you essentially to the shut tie-in with the mirrored image namespace, UI automation libraries and COM interop serivces. The C# or VB.NET language ability set, whereas now not trival, isn't the comparable as writing C++ COM/ATL code, which might were the one believable alternative a decade in the past to create an automation software.

People coming from a script language coding history, ideally with a few local Win32 programming of their previous, should still transition to .NET languages really easily. in the event that they have an effective take hold of of the diversities among unit checking out, integration and approach trying out, there is a lot during this publication to use either actually and to exploit as a conceptual base for developing an automation instrument much more adapted in your particular program needs.

I do not often touch upon different stories yet i must say the examples within the ebook labored simply effective on my XP SP3 computing device surroundings, operating the most recent model of the .NET framework. Having been round software program improvement and checking out for 20+ years i am convinced that person's not easy adventure was once actual, yet it is unfair to offer all readers the influence the e-book includes undesirable code.

What the ebook does comprise in abundance is painfully undesirable English. i do not say this with any disrespect in the direction of the authors. i am convinced they're doing their most sensible and, as somebody who speaks just one language (and struggles frequently with it), I recognize an individual who makes an attempt to benefit and use one other, in particular in a technical field.

My feedback is aimed toward the Sybex editors, who fairly dropped the ball the following through letting an incredible ebook out the door with out sufficient review.
