Elektor Electronics, February 2008

Surround Light for PC and TV
Due to the fact that we received two circuit designs for television mood lighting and they both fit with the theme of this issue, we initiated a unique Elektor project: in this issue we present two completely different designs that produce nearly the same effect. Our French contributor Alex Vercey took the analogue approach, while Steffen Schütte from Germany went the "microcontroller way". See, compare, experience for yourself.

What University
So you were thinking of studying for an Electronics and Electrical Engineering degree or similar qualification at a UK university or other higher level educational establishment? Here's a 3-step primer on the subject.

CAN Explorer
Implementing the CAN bus network is not a trivial undertaking. This low-cost solution is a CAN board which sits between the CAN bus and a PC. Using the versatile (free) software it can monitor activity on the network and test the functioning of other nodes.

LED Ringflash
With macro-photography, if lighting conditions are not ideal, it will be necessary to resort to the use of flash, with the attendant risk of shadows. The solution is a ringflash -- and while we're about it, why not one using LEDs?

Power to the LEDs
In two short picture stories we tell not only how LEDs are designed and produced (basically!), but also look at what Philips Lumileds Lighting Systems are pursuing technically in a bid at making a versatile high-power LED for mass production.

Elektor Electronics, January 2008

CO2 Measurement
Too high a concentration of CO2 leads to feelings of tiredness, disturbs concentration, and causes headaches. The CO2 meter described here makes it easy to determine the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air. A microcontroller monitors the measured value and can trigger an alarm or start up a ventilation system when a preset threshold is exceeded.

Economical with Energy
Handy energy meters are available that can just be plugged into a power point and then indicate on a display how much power the appliance uses. How accurate are these meters and what can you actually measure with them? We examined a few of these meters in the Elektor laboratory.

Anti-Standby Switch
Energy Saving may well be a must-have feature for home entertainment products sold today but there are still millions of older and even not-soold appliances that are guzzling far too much juice in the all too convenient standby mode. The anti-standby switch described here saves the planet's energy -- and yours too!

Versatile DC Power Meter
This compact DC power supply instrument module can be used with new supplies and older types lacking this capability. And thanks to microcontroller technology, it offers some bonus features.

Mac OS X Tiger for Unix Geeks

Author: Brian Jepson, Ernest E. Rothman

Publisher: O'Reilly

Date: June 2005

Pages: 415


If you're one of the many Unix developers drawn to Mac OS X for its Unix core, you'll find yourself in surprisingly unfamiliar territory. Unix and Mac OS X are kissing cousins, but there are enough pitfalls and minefields in going from one to another that even a Unix guru can stumble, and most guides to Mac OS X are written for Mac aficionados. For a Unix developer, approaching Tiger from the Mac side is a bit like learning Russian by reading the Russian side of a Russian-English dictionary. Fortunately, O'Reilly has been the Unix authority for over 25 years, and in Mac OS X Tiger for Unix Geeks, that depth of understanding shows.

This is the book for Mac command-line fans. Completely revised and updated to cover Mac OS X Tiger, this new edition helps you quickly and painlessly get acclimated with Tiger's familiar-yet foreign-Unix environment. Topics include:

  • Using the Terminal and understanding how it differs from an xterm
  • Using Directory Services, Open Directory (LDAP), and NetInfo
  • Compiling code with GCC 3
  • Library linking and porting Unix software
  • Creating and installing packages with Fink
  • Using DarwinPorts
  • Search through metadata with Spotlight's command-line utilities
  • Building the Darwin kernel
  • Running X Windows on top of Mac OS X, or better yet, run Mac OS X on a Windows machine with PearPC!

Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide (3rd Edition)

Newly revised and updated for Java 2 standards, the second edition of The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide is packed with information on what you’ll need to know to pass both the Sun Java Programmer and Developer Exams. With Java certification becoming ever more popular, this title is an essential resource for anyone who’s preparing for it.

The cover of the book asserts that one of its team authors actually contributes questions to Sun’s tests.

The goal here isn’t so much to beat the testmakers (although the book has plenty to say about test-taking strategy) as it is to master the finer points of Java that you’ll need to understand to succeed on the exam. The focus is on the areas that Sun has defined as important. The Programmer Exam–the first level of Sun certification–is covered first. Basic language features are reviewed, such as access specifiers, operators, and other keywords that will help make you an expert. (Some sections explain with great clarity the mysteries of Java’s “extra” shift operator and other features.) Other chapters cover threads and multithreading strategies, as well as user-interface design with layout managers (which Sun considers important).

The second half of the volume concentrates on the Developer Exam, a more free-form exercise in which programmers write custom code, based on a specification from Sun. Two case studies, one for a room-scheduling application and another for a trouble-ticket system that tracks requests for technical support, illustrate this test. As the solution is presented, you’ll learn how to build custom client/server software, and how to use Remote Method Invocation (RMI) and other advanced techniques. There’s also advice for the best programming styles and choices for passing this challenging exam.

As in the previous edition, each chapter in this book concludes with sample questions (about 10 each) to help you study. In the new edition, there’s now a full sample Programmer Exam (both printed and on the accompanying CD-ROM), which simulates the length and format of the real thing. In all, the new edition of this previously bestselling title will continue to provide helpful preparation for anyone who seeks Sun certification.

Despite the bulk (over 900 pages), this book actually makes for quick reading, and will help anyone decipher some of the more difficult aspects of the Java programming language. –Richard Dragan
