I would like to announce the release of a new free textbook on analog
circuit design and microprocessor systems:
'Analog and Microprocessor System Design: The Weather Station Project'
The text is 245 pages in length and contains theoretical and practical
material on the design of weather station instrumentation. It was originally
written to support a senior electronics laboratory in electronic
instrumentation at Ryerson University Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering. It will be of interest to anyone setting up a course in analog
circuit design, microprocessor systems or instrumentation.
There is also design information on weather instruments that will be useful
to anyone constructing an electronic weather station.
The textbook is available on the website
in the 'course material' subdirectory.
The material has been extensively class tested. It is in PDF format and
freely useable for personal and classroom use. If you are interested in
for-profit resale of the material, please check with me first. If you find
the material useful, or have suggestions for changes, feel free to let me
The weather station uses the MPP Microprocessor 68HC11 kit which is
described at the same web site.
