The 555 timer is one of the most useful electronic devices in the
market. The 555 timer was first introduced by Signetics but today it is manufactured
by nearly all semiconductor firms. The cost of this device is low
and it is widely available. The 555 timer has lots of uses such as: Mark Space
Adjustment, Pulse Width Modulation and Inductive Current Detection just
to name a few. The 555 has some unique advantages and capabilities, such as: low-cost, high
operating voltage (5-15V) range, it is high powered and at the same time able to
be triggered by small currents.
i FirSt StArted plAying With the Android Sdk before it was offi cially released as version 1.0. Back
then, the tools were unpolished, the APIs in the SDK were unstable, and the documentation was sparse.
Fast forward two and a half years, Android is now a formidable mobile operating system, with a following
no less impressive than the iPhone. Having gone through all the growing pains of Android, I
think now is the best time to start learning about Android programming — the APIs have stabilized,
and the tools have improved.

The field of toxicology has grown enormously since Industrial Toxicology: Safety and Health Applications in the Workplace was first published in 1985. And while the original edition was hugely popular among occupational health professionals, the time is ripe to address toxic agents not only in the industrial setting but also in the environment at large.
develop and implement Windows-based applications by using Windows Forms and the Microsoft .NET Framework. This exam counts as a core credit toward the new MCAD (Microsoft Certified Application Developer) certification as well as a core credit toward the MCSD .NET certification. This book is not intended to teach new material. Instead it assumes that you have a solid foundation of knowledge but can use a refresher on important concepts as well as a guide to exam topics and objectives.
With Internet applications spreading like wildfire, the field of software testing is increasingly challenged by the brave new networked world of e–business. This book brings you up to speed on the technologies, testing concepts, and tools you′ll need to run e–business applications on the Web.
In recent years many successful machine learning applications have been developed, ranging
from data mining programs that learn to detect fraudulent credit card transactions, to
information filtering systems that learn user’s reading preferences, to autonomous vehicles
that learn to drive on public highways. At the same time, machine learning techniques such
as rule induction, neural networks, genetic learning, case-based reasoning, and analytic
learning have been widely applied to real-world problems.
Book "Superconductors - Properties, Technology, and Applications" gives an overview of major problems encountered in this field of study.

Rapid Prototyping is a promising powerful technology that has the potential to
revolutionise certain spheres in the ever changing and challenging field of medical science.
The process involves building of prototypes or working models in relatively short time to
help create and test various design features, ideas, concepts, functionality and in certain
instances outcome and performance.
This book compiles recent studies on interferometry and its applications in science and
technology. It is intended as an up-to-date reference of theoretical and experimental
aspects of interferometry and their applications.
The book is divided in two sections. The first one is an overview of different
interferometry techniques and their general applications. Chapter 1 is concentrated
on the classical field interferometry. This chapter describes and explains the
structures of different type of fiber interferometers, and the standard methods for
Real-Time Embedded Multithreading contains the fundamentals of developing real-time operating systems and multithreading with all the new functionality of ThreadX Version 5.

Microwave heating has found many applications ranging from the microwave ovens in kitchen to heat food, to a sterilization apparatus for medical treatment, to materials processing in the various fields. In those applications, microwave heating demonstrates significant advantages over conventional methods in reduced processing time and less environmental impacts. This book is comprised of eight chapters within three parts highlighting different aspects covering both the basic understandings and the advanced applications....
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) represents one of the
most advanced and enlightening functional imaging techniques that
has ever been developed. The past ten years (1990–2000) of scientific
research has been designated the decade of the brain and has led to
numerous technological developments and the establishment of fundamental
clinical protocols to understand brain functions. The next
decade, the beginning of the 21st century, will continue the great
momentum of brain research.
Biomedical Engineering is an exciting and emerging interdisciplinary field that combines engineering with life sciences. The relevance of this area can be perceived in our everyday lives every time we go to hospital, receive medical treatment or even when we buy health products such as an automatic blood pressure monitor device. Over the past years we have experienced a great technological development in health care and this is due to the joint work of engineers, mathematicians, physicians, computer scientists and many other professionals....
If you're basing your livelihood on Java these days, you are going to run across at least one
enterprise application programming project; if it hasn't come upon you already, it's just around
the corner. I've been faced with more than twenty at this point in my career, and see many
more in my future. Each time I get into these projects, I find myself paging through book after
book and searching the Web, looking for the same information time after time. Additionally,
I've developed a bit of a toolkit for handling common enterprise tasks....
Welcome to Beginning Windows 8 Application Development: XAML Edition. When I was first asked to produce
a sample table of contents for what my Windows 8 development book would include, I spent a lot of time
thinking about the aspects of Windows 8 development that I felt would be most important to help a developer
just learning to write software in a XAML-based environment.
