Logic-Based Artificial Intelligence (The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science Volume 597)

This landmark quantity represents the fruits of over forty years of study within the use of good judgment as a foundation for representing and manipulating difficulties within the box of synthetic intelligence. The use of common sense as a foundation for common sense reasoning used to be all started by means of John McCarthy in 1959. the gathering contains either unique examine and surveys of just about each topic that makes use of good judgment in AI, contributed through major scientists, and grew out of initial paintings provided at the Workshop on Logic-Based synthetic Intelligence held in Washington, DC, June 1999.

Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications

This e-book is a hands-on advent to the foundations and perform of embedded method layout utilizing the PIC microcontroller. choked with useful examples and illustrations, it provides an in-depth therapy of microcontroller layout, programming in either meeting language and C, and lines complex themes comparable to networking and real-time working structures.

Debugging Systems-on-Chip: Communication-centric and Abstraction-based Techniques

This booklet describes an technique and aiding infrastructure to facilitate debugging the silicon implementation of a System-on-Chip (SOC), permitting its linked product to be brought into the industry extra speedy. Readers research step by step the most important necessities for debugging a contemporary, silicon SOC implementation, 9 elements that complicate this debugging activity, and a brand new debug procedure that addresses those standards and complicating components.

Example text

Remember, however, that the F509 memory is quoted for 12-bit words, not bytes. The Freescale device has two peripherals with direct F508/9 equivalents, the input/output port and a timer. The Freescale port, Port A, is 6-bit, almost directly equivalent to the 12F508 GPIO. Both devices have equivalent reliability features, Watchdog Timer for Microchip, ‘Computer Operating Properly’ for Freescale. A significant difference between the two is that Freescale have chosen, even for so small a microcontroller, to include interrupts in the structure.

Then, as Flash memory technology became more accessible, the ’C84 was reissued as the 16F84, with the new memory technology. With further upgrading it became the 16F84A. At the time of writing, this is the current version. A 16LF84A, intended for low-power applications, is also available. 3 A caution on upgrades As technological expertise develops, any microcontroller design is inevitably upgraded. g. Ref. 3). While each upgrade is generally to be welcomed, the changes introduced need to be watched with care.

An embedded system can be defined as [Ref. 1]: A system whose principal function is not computational, but which is controlled by a computer embedded within it. These days embedded systems are everywhere, appearing in the home, office, factory, car or hospital. 1 lists some example products that are likely to be embedded systems, all chosen for their familiarity. While many of these examples seem very different from each other, they all draw on the same principles as far as their characteristics as an embedded system are concerned.
