Applied PC Interfacing, Graphics and Interrupts

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1996 - Computers - 383 pages
Using good practical examples, this new book introduces the reader to the component parts of a PC, showing how high and low level languages communicate with them, and how computers communicate with peripherals. Applied PC Interfacing, Graphics and Interrupts provides an understanding of how the specification of component parts of a PC affects overall system performance, and it also develops an applications-led approach to computer interfacing. In his book, William Buchanan takes a programming language-independent approach to computer interfacing, provides an introduction to interfacing using standard hardware devices, includes good practical examples, and covers specialist areas such as computer interfacing and graphics.
