This new book on Analog Circuit Design contains the revised contributions of all the tutorial speakers of the eight workshop AACD (Advances in Analog Circuit Design), which was held at Nice, France on March 23-25, 1999. The workshop was organized by Yves Leduc of TI Nice, France. The program committee consisted of Willy Sansen, K.U.Leuven, Belgium, Han Huijsing, T.U.Delft, The Netherlands and Rudy van de Plassche, T.U.Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The aim of these AACD workshops is to bring together a restricted group of about 100 people who are personally advancing the frontiers of analog circuit design to brainstorm on new possibilities and future developments in a restricted number of fields. They are concentrated around three topics. In each topic six speakers give a tutorial presentation. Eighteen papers are thus included in this book. The topics of 1999 are: (X)DSL and other communication systems RF MOST models Integrated filters and oscillators The other topics, which have been coverd before, are: 1992 Operational amplifiers A-D Converters Analog CAD 1993 Mixed-mode A+D design Sensor interfaces Communication circuits 1994 Low-power low-voltage design Integrated filters Smart power 1995 Low-noise low-power low-voltge design Mixed-mode design with CAD tools Voltage, current and time references vii viii 1996 RF CMOS circuit design Bandpass sigma-delta and other data converters Translinear circuits 1997 RF A-D Converters Sensor and actuator interfaces Low-noise oscillators, PLL's and synthesizers 1998 I-Volt electronics Design and implementation of mixed-mode systems Low-noise amplifiers and RF power amplifiers for telecommunications

The book discusses in details the main hardware and firmware fundamentals about micro- controllers. The goal is to present all the concepts necessary to understand and design an embedded system based on microcontrollers. The book discusses on: Binary logic and arithmetic; Embedded-systems basics; Low-end 8-bit microcontrollers by Microchip and STMicroelectronics; On-chip memories, Input/Output ports, peripherals; Assembly instruction sets; EasyPIC evaluation board by MikroElektronika; High-end 32-bit cores by ARM-Cortex; STM32F4 microprocessor by STMicroelectronics; Nucleo board for STM32F4 by STMicroelectronics; Custom developed board. The book is not targeted for just either low-end or high-end microcontrollers. Instead, the book fully describes both, moving from the basics of microcontroller systems, to 8-bit devices and then to the 32-bit ones.In fact, the book targets well-renowned, commercially-available microcontrollers by the microelectronic leaders in the field. As for low-end 8-bit microcontrollers, the book reviews the widely-spread and well-assessed devices by Microchip (the PIC16 family) and by STMicroelectronics (the ST6 family). Instead, as for high-end 32-bit microcontrollers, the book presents the leading-edge M3 and M4 cores by ARM-Cortex and its implementation by STMicroelectronics (the STM32F4 series).The Book is very modular and most Chapters can be used as stand-alone mini text books (e.g., Chapter 3 – “8-bit microcontrollers”, Chapter 5 – “ARM-Cortex architectures”, Chapter 6 – “STM32 microcontroller”). Moreover, Chapter 4 and Chapter 7 provide a very useful insight to electronic circuits employing microcontrollers and on-board components, by means of the EasyPIC v7 board by Mikroelektronika (for PIC microcontrollers) and Nucleo board by STmicroelectronics (for the STM32 ARM-Cortex M4 microcontrollers).

This dictionary is a collection of technical abbreviations and acronyms used in information and communication technologies and other industrial activities. They are used in industries, institutes, organisations and universities, all too often without mentioning their meaning. Areas covered by this dictionary are Information and Communication Technology (ICT), including hardware and software; Information Networks, including the Internet and the World Wide Web; Automatic Control; and ICT-related Computer-Aided Techniques and Activities. Apart from the technical terms this dictionary also lists abbreviated names of relevant organisations, conferences, symposia and workshops. This reference book is important for all practitioners and users in the areas mentioned above and those who consult or write technical material (manuals, guides, books, articles, marketing and teaching material). These publications often omit the meaning of acronyms and confront the reader with jargon too often difficult to understand. This edition contains over 33,000 items and differs from the previous one by deleting obsolete terms and less relevant acronyms. Ten thousand new items have been added.

Improving Mathematics Education has been designed to help inform stakeholders about the decisions they face, to point to recent research findings, and to provide access to the most recent thinking of experts on issues of national concern in mathematics education. The essence of the report is that information is available to help those charged with improving student achievement in mathematics. The documents cited above can guide those who make decisions about content, learning, teaching, and assessment. The report is organized around five key questions: What should we teach, given what we know and value about mathematics and its roles? How should we teach so children learn, given what we know about students, mathematics, and how people learn mathematics? What preparation and support do teachers need? How do we know whether what we are doing is working? What must change? Each of the five main chapters in this report considers a key area of mathematics education and describes the core messages of current publication(s) in that area. To maintain the integrity of each report's recommendations, we used direct quotes and the terminology defined and used in that report. If the wording or terminology seems to need clarification, the committee refers the reader directly to the original document. Because these areas are interdependent, the documents often offer recommendations related to several different areas. While the individual documents are discussed under only one of the components in Improving Mathematics Education, the reader should recognize that each document may have a broader scope. In general, the references in this report should serve as a starting point for the interested reader, who can refer to the original documents for fuller discussions of the recommendations and, in some cases, suggestions for implementation. Improving Mathematics Education is designed to help educators build a critical knowledge base about mathematics education, recognizing that the future of the nation's students is integrally intertwined with the decisions we make (or fail to make) about the mathematics education they receive.
