  • Micro- and Nano-Scale Sensors and Transducers by Ezzat G. Bakhoum

    By Ezzat G. Bakhoum

    The swiftly rising fields of nanotechnology and nano-fabrication have enabled the construction of latest sensors with dramatic advancements in sensitivity and diversity, besides colossal miniaturization. And, even though there are lots of books on nanotechnology, contemporary advances in micro and nano-scale sensors and transducers usually are not thoroughly represented in so much books. This e-book fills that gap.

    Micro- and Nano-Scale Sensors and Transducers offers a precis of the country of the art in sensor and transducer know-how. educating you ways to make extra proficient choices of sensors or transducers for specific functions, it describes the diversities among new sensor and transducer applied sciences according to nanotechnology and nano-fabrication and the older or "classical" sensor technologies.

    The publication offers the recent buildings of strain sensors getting used in such purposes as mechanical strain sensing, gasoline strain sensing, and atmospheric strain sensing. It illustrates the radical constructions and features of latest movement and acceleration sensors.

    Describing hugely delicate miniature gasoline and smoke sensors in accordance with nano-structured electrodes, the e-book provides novel concepts for detecting atmospheric moisture and moisture within small digital elements. It additionally covers functions of optoelectronic and photonic sensors.

    The e-book examines multi-purpose organic and chemical research units the place each one gadget is totally contained in a single built-in circuit (Lab on a Chip) in addition to different complicated chemical and organic sensors. It describes electrical, magnetic, and RF / microwave sensors and their purposes and likewise considers built-in sensor / actuator devices and special-purpose sensors.

    Each bankruptcy within the e-book contains a set of quizzes / brief questions, besides answers.

  • AmIware Hardware Technology Drivers of Ambient Intelligence by Rick Harwig (auth.), Satyen Mukherjee, Ronald M. Aarts, Raf

    By Rick Harwig (auth.), Satyen Mukherjee, Ronald M. Aarts, Raf Roovers, Frans Widdershoven, Martin Ouwerkerk (eds.)

    Ambient Intelligence is among the new paradigms within the improvement of data and conversation expertise, which has attracted a lot recognition during the last years. the purpose is the to combine expertise into humans atmosphere in this sort of method that it improves their day-by-day lives by way of future health, creativity, and productiveness. Ambient Intelligence is a multidisciplinary thought, which seriously builds on a few primary breakthroughs which have been accomplished within the improvement of recent options during the last years. New insights in nano and micro electronics, packaging and interconnection expertise, large-area electronics, power scavenging units, instant sensors, low strength electronics and computing structures let the conclusion of the heaven of ambient intelligence by means of overcoming the hell of physics. in accordance with contributions from best technical specialists, this booklet offers a couple of key issues on novel advancements, therefore offering the reader an excellent perception into the actual foundation of ambient intelligence. It additionally exhibits key examine demanding situations that has to be addressed sooner or later.

  • Putt's Law and the Successful Technocrat: How to Win in the by Archibald Putt

    By Archibald Putt

    "Technology is ruled through different types of humans: those that comprehend what
    they don't deal with, and those that deal with what they don't understand."
    —Putt's Law
    Early compliment for Putt's legislations and the profitable Technocrat:
    "This is administration writing how it must be. imagine Dilbert, yet with
    a very tremendous mind. learn it and weep. Or snicker, reckoning on your present job
    situation."
    —Spectral strains, IEEE Spectrum, April 2006
    "It's a vintage. It reads initially like humor, yet one finally realizes
    that it's all actual. the 1st variation replaced my existence. I loaned my replica to
    a subordinate at IBM, and he didn't go back it to me until eventually he used to be my boss."
    —Dave Thompson, PhD, IBM Fellow (retired), Member nationwide Academy of
    Engineering, and IEEE Fellow
    "Putt's humor levels from sharp to whimsical and is often on target.
    Readers might be reminded of many own reports and of classes in
    life they want that they had realized prior of their careers."
    —Eric Herz, former IEEE government director and normal manager
    "Anyone who thinks 'engineering management' is an oxymoron must read
    this magnificent e-book — then they're going to know."
    —Norman R. Augustine, writer of Augustine's legislation and retired Chairman & CEO
    of Lockheed Martin Corporation
    Putt's legislations is as real at the present time because it used to be while techno-everyman Archibald Putt
    first acknowledged it. Now, in Putt's legislation and the profitable Technocrat: How to
    Win within the info Age, Putt is again with the unvarnished fact about
    success within the sleek, technology-driven organization.
    As you study the genuine ideas of the know-how international, you'll meet such
    characters because the profitable technocrat, Dr. I. M. Sharp. You'll locate out
    how he wrangles profession victories from company disasters, nearly
    bankrupting the company together with his initiatives whereas by some means rising the hero.
    You'll additionally meet such unfortunates as Roger Proofsworthy, top-level
    perfectionist but low within the hierarchy, and are available to appreciate how he
    assiduously preserves his spot close to the ground of the totem pole.
    Whether you're employed in company, IT, or are a contract technocrat, you'll
    want to review Putt's hard-won knowledge and laugh—all the right way to the financial institution!
