Learn how to design digital circuits with FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays), the devices that reconfigure themselves to become the very hardware circuits you set out to program. With this practical guide, author Justin Rajewski shows you hands-on how to create FPGA projects, whether you're a programmer, engineer, product designer, or maker. You'll quickly go from the basics to designing your own processor.
Designing digital circuits used to be a long and costly endeavor that only big companies could pursue. FPGAs make the process much easier, and now they're affordable enough even for hobbyists. If you're familiar with electricity and basic electrical components, this book starts simply and progresses through increasingly complex projects.
Set up your environment by installing Xilinx ISE and the author's Mojo IDE; Learn how hardware designs are broken into modules, comparable to functions in a software program; Create digital hardware designs and learn the basics on h ...
||Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP|
If you need to build a scalable, fault tolerant system with requirements for high availability, discover why the Erlang/OTP platform stands out for the breadth, depth, and consistency of its features. This hands-on guide demonstrates how to use the Erlang programming language and its OTP framework of reusable libraries, tools, and design principles to develop complex commercial-grade systems that simply cannot fail.
In the first part of the book, you'll learn how to design and implement process behaviors and supervision trees with Erlang/OTP, and bundle them into standalone nodes. The second part addresses reliability, scalability, and high availability in your overall system design. If you're familiar with Erlang, this book will help you understand the design choices and trade-offs necessary to keep your system running.
Explore OTP's building blocks: the Erlang language, tools and libraries collection, and its abstract principles and design rules; Div ...
||Material Design implementation with AngularJS|
Building web and mobile apps that are interactive, fluid and provide consistent experience across devices ranging from desktops, tablets and smart phones is challenging. User Interface (UI) elements need to adapt to various screen sizes and yet the code behind need to be reusable and follow best of coding practices.
Material Design with AngularJS details out building such sophisticated web and mobile apps by combining Material Design and AngularJS concepts.
Material design takes mobile-first approach. User Interactions are built to be natural with animations, positioning of elements and more.
AngularJS provides many web development features like routing, accessibility, localization etc. out of box. And the framework's implementation of design patters like Dependency Injection, Model View Controller or Model View-View Model will allow better separation of concerns.
This book dwells into following libraries, i) Angular Material- being built by Goog ...
||Java Design Patterns|
Learn how to implement design patterns in Java: each pattern in Java Design Patterns is a complete implementation and the output is generated using Eclipse, making the code accessible to all. The examples are chosen so you will be able to absorb the core concepts easily and quickly.
This book presents the topic of design patterns in Java in such a way that anyone can grasp the idea. By giving easy to follow examples, you will understand the concepts with increasing depth. The examples presented are straightforward and the topic is presented in a concise manner.
This is a practitioner's book on design patterns in Java. Design patterns are a popular topic in software development. A design pattern is a common, well-described solution to a common software problem. There is a lot of written material available on design patterns, but scattered and not in one single reference source. Also, many of these examples are unnecessarily big and ...
||3D Printing Designs: Design an SD Card Holder|
Want to model a 3D printed prototype of an object that needs to be replaced or broken? This book will teach you how to accurately measure objects in the real world with a few basic measuring techniques and how to create an object for 3D printing around the objects measured.
In this book, you'll learn to identify basic shapes from a given object, use Vernier and Digital calipers and grid paper tracing techniques to derive measurements for the objects. With the help of measurements, you'll see to model these objects using Blender, organize the parts into layers, and later combine them to create the desired object, which in this book is a 3D printable SD card holder ring that fits your finger. ...
||3D Printing Designs: Octopus Pencil Holder|
This book will cover the very basic but essential techniques you need to model an organic and functional object for 3D printing using Blender.
Starting with pen and paper and then moving on to the computer, you will create your first project in Blender, add basic geometric shapes, and use techniques such as extruding and subdividing to transform these shapes into complex meshes. You will learn how modifiers can automatically refine the shape further and combine multiple shapes into a single 3D printable model.
By the end of the book, you will have gained enough practical hands-on experience to be able to create a 3D printable object of your choice, which in this case is a 3D print-ready octopus pencil holder. ...
