The Boundary-Scan Handbook


The Boundary-Scan Handbook


$69.99


Boundary-Scan, formally known as IEEE/ANSI Standard 1149.1-1990, is a collection of design rules applied principally at the integrated circuit (IC) level that allow software to alleviate the growing cost of designing and producing digital systems. The primary benefit of the standard is its ability to transform extremely printed circuit board testing problems that could only be attacked with ad-hoc testing methods into well-structured problems that software can easily and swiftly deal with. The Boundary-Scan Handbook is for professionals in the electronics industry who are concerned with the practical problems of competing successfully in the face of rapid-fire technological change. Since many of these changes affect our ability to do testing and hence cost-effective production, the advent of the 1149.1 standard is rightly looked upon as a major breakthrough. However, there is a great deal of misunderstanding about what to expect of 1149.1 and how to use it. Because of this, The Boundary-Scan Handbook is not a rehash of the 1149.1 standard, nor does it intend to be a tutorial on the basics of its workings. The standard itself should always be consulted for this, being careful to follow supplements issued by the IEEE that clarify and correct it. Rather, The Boundary-Scan Handbook motivates proper expectations and explains how to use the standard successfully.

Handbook of Control Systems Engineering


Handbook of Control Systems Engineering


$419


This book is a revision and extension of the author’s 1995 Sourcebook of Control Systems Engineering. Because of the extensions and other modifications, it has been re-titled Handbook of Control Systems Engineering, which it is intended to be for its prime audience: advanced undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, and practicing engineers needing an understandable review of the field or recent developments which may prove useful. New in This Edition. Two new chapters on aspects of nonlinear systems have been incorporated. In the first of these, selected material for nonlinear systems is concentrated on four aspects: showing the value of certain linear controllers, arguing the suitability of algebraic linearization, reviewing the semi-classical methods of harmonic balance, and introducing the nonlinear change of variable technique known as feedback linearization. In the second new chapter, the topic of variable structure control, often with sliding mode, is introduced. A third chapter introduces discrete event systems, including several approaches to their analysis. The chapters on robust control and intelligent control have been extensively revised. Modest revisions and extensions have also been made to other chapters, often to incorporate extensions to nonlinear systems. Many references have been updated to more recent books, although old standards are still cited. Also, some of the advances in computer and communications technology are reflected. The index has been revised and expanded. The structure of the book is as in the first edition. Briefly, the aim is to present the topics in a fairly modular manner with certain main groupings. The first several chapters are concerned with the hardware and software of the control task as well as systems engineering associated with the selection of appropriate components. The next chapters look at the sources and representations of the mathematical models used in the theory. A number of chapters then are concerned with standard classical or transform domain material as is usually presented in a first level university course, including stability theory, root locus diagrams, and Bode plots. The next group of chapters concerns the standard modern or state space material usually met in a second level course. Included here are observers, pole placement, and optimal control. Overlapping into usual graduate level courses are the next several chapters on more advanced optimal control, Kalman filtering, system identification, and standard adaptive control. The final chapters introduce more advanced, research level subjects. Here are selected topics in nonlinear control, intelligent control, robust control, and discrete event systems. The topics covered are intended to represent the mainstream of control systems teaching. Examples are presented to illustrate the computability of the theory presented. Handbook of Controls Systems Engineering, Second Edition is suitable as a secondary text for upper level undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.

It includes chapters on cooked ham and bacon, cooked, fresh and raw fermented sausages, raw fermented and non-fermented salami, cured air-dried products, burgers and patties, brawn and meat jelly, canned and marinated meat.

Handbook of Clinical Psychology Competencies


Handbook of Clinical Psychology Competencies


$949


In recent years there has been a tremendous growth in psychology as a field of study and in the number of students of clinical psychology in particular. The latter is partly due to the proliferation of professional schools of psychology that are devoted to practitioner-oriented degrees, rather than the traditional research-oriented course of study. Whatever school students emerge from, however, they are obliged to demonstrate proficiency in providing clinical services. This multi-volume handbook, is devoted to describing the core competency areas in providing psychological services which is relevant to practitioners as well as clinical researchers. As such, it covers assessment and conceptualization of cases, the application of evidence-based methods, supervision, consultation, cross-cultural factors, and ethics.The Handbook comprises three volumes with contributions by experts in each area. The goal is to provide detailed descriptions of competence levels and describe the developmental trajectory required to reach the highest of these levels. Each chapter in Volume I will follow a similar format including an overview, basic competencies, and expert competencies. This will facilitate easy comparison across chapters. All will be illustrated with case examples. Subsequent volumes will have a similarly structured format that will include maintenance factors, mechanisms of change, evidence-based treatment approaches, and a focus on the transition from basic skills to expert functioning.It is expected that the systematic presentation of skills will provide a gold standard against which to measure individual performance and in this regard will be valuable to students, instructors, and credentialing bodies.
