Visual Basic for Electronics Engineering Applications
The PC has long-time outgrown its function as a pure computer and has become an all-purpose machine. This book is targeted towards those people that want to control existing or self-built hardware from their computer. Using Visual Basic as Rapid Application Development tool we will take you on a journey to unlock the world beyond the connectors of the PC. After familiarising yourself with Visual Basic, its development environment and the toolset it offers, items such as serial communications, printer ports, bit-banging, protocol emulation, ISA, USB and Ethernet interfacing and the remote control of test-equipment over the GPIB bus, are covered in extent. Each topic is accompanied by clear, ready to run code, and where necessary, schematics are provided that will get your projects up to speed in no time. This book will show you advanced things like: using tools like Debug to find hardware addresses, setting up remote communication using TCP/IP and UDP sockets and even writing your own internet servers. Or how about connecting your own block of hardware over USB or Ethernet and controlling it from Visual Basic. Other things like internet-program communication, DDE and the new graphics interface of Windows XP are covered as well. All examples are ready to compile using Visual Basic 5.0, 6.0, NET or 2005. Extensive coverage is given on the differences between what could be called Visual Basic Classic and Visual basic .NET / 2005.
Home Automation Basics
This book explores the world of Visual Basic 6 programming with respect to real-world interfacing and control on a beginner to intermediate level, with a home automation system. Includes HVAC systems, water pumps, temperature controls and more.
Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic
A Volume in the Wiley-Interscience Series on Laboratory Automation. The complete, step-by-step guide to using Visual Basic(r) in a laboratory setting Visual Basic(r) is fast becoming the de facto laboratory programming language, yet existing books typically discuss applications that have nothing to do with science and engineering. This primer fills the gap in the field, showing professionals seeking to improve the productivity of their laboratories how to use Visual Basic(r) to automate laboratory processes. Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) helps laboratory professionals decide when and if to use Visual Basic(r) and how to combine it with the many computing technologies used in modern laboratories such as RS-232 port communications, TCP/IP networking, and event-driven control, to name a few. With an emphasis on getting readers programming immediately, the book provides clear guidelines to the appropriate programming techniques as well as custom-developed software tools. Readers will learn how to build applications to control laboratory instruments, collect and process experimental data, create interactive graphical applications, and more. Boasting many working examples with the complete source code and backward compatibility to previous versions of Visual Basic(r), Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) is an indispensable teaching tool for nonprogrammers and a useful reference for more experienced practitioners.
Application Development Using C and NET
The practical guide to C# .NET development for experienced programmers. Running case study covers the entire .NET development process. .NET attributes, collections, threading, security, versioning, remoting, and more.
Practical Database Programming with Visual Basic NET
Unlike most database programming books, which overwhelm readers with large amount of code, this book employs a new, more reader-friendly approach. Now in a new edition updated with the latest tools and information, it lays out to readers, in particular college students, how to develop professional and practical database programs in Visual Basic.NET environment by using Visual Studio.NET Data Tools and Wizards related to ADO.NET 4.0. This new approach allows readers to learn simpler ways of database programming, and enables students to build professional and practical database programming with greater efficiency.
Starting Out With Visual Basic
For courses in Visual Basic Programming In Starting Out with Visual Basic, Tony Gaddis and Kip Irvine take a step-by-step approach, helping students understand the logic behind developing quality programs while introducing the Visual Basic language. Revised and fully updated throughout for Visual Basic 2015, the Seventh Edition is written in clear, easy-to-understand language, covering all the necessary introductory programming topics. Concise, practical, and real-world example programs not only help students learn to use the various controls, constructs, and features of Visual Basic, but also why and when to use them. The text is designed for students who have no prior programming background, but experienced students will also benefit from its depth of detail and the chapters covering databases, Web applications, and other advanced topics. Each chapter covers a major set of programming topics, introduces controls and GUI elements, and builds knowledge as the student progresses through the book. Also Available with MyProgrammingLab. MyProgrammingLab is an online learning system designed to engage students and improve results. MyProgrammingLab consists of a set of programming exercises correlated to the programming concepts in this book and improves the programming competence of beginning students who often struggle with the basic concepts of programming languages. For students, the system automatically detects errors in the logic and syntax of their code submissions and offers targeted hints that enable students to figure out what went wrong. For instructors, a comprehensive gradebook tracks correct and incorrect answers and stores the code inputted by students for review.

Wiley encyclopedia of electrical and electronics engineering
"Containing over 1,400 articles, this is the most comprehensive encyclopedia of electrical engineering available. The articles were written and reviewed by an international group of engineers with academic or research affiliations. The entries are grouped into 64 broad categories such as solid-state circuits, fuzzy systems, and medical imaging. Mathematical explanations, tables, and graphics illustrate the articles. An extensive index by subject and keyword makes locating material easy. All of the articles have bibliographies. Larger public libraries and academic libraries with engineerings majors will find this to be a useful source."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.
