Computer Architecture and Interfacing to Mechatronic Systems
According to Textbook Revolution, a student-run site “dedicated to increasing the use of free educational materials by teachers and professors,” "This textbook provides a fundamental overview of computer architecture and interfacing electronics. In particular, the book looks at the interfacing of computers for data acquisition purposes, industrial control, motor control, etc. Although the textbook was written in 1994, the basic architectural elements of computer architecture and interfacing are still valid. To this end, the book provides a useful background text which can be read as a precursor to looking at how modern devices such as complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) can be used to achieve control and interfacing outcomes."
