This new edition of what is a very successful Pocket Book has been substantially revised to take account of the most recently introduced standards and the newest technology. Always with the emphasis on current engineering practice, this is an exhaustive collection of useful data supported by clear accounts of the fundamental principles, essential for both the modern mechanical engineer and the student of mechanical engineering. This mass of information is rendered easily accessible by division into four main parts - maths and science, design data, materials and cutting tools - which are in turn divided into smaller topic areas. A well laid-out contents and index help the reader find their way around. Fully revised to cover most recently introduced standards Completely comprehensive with emphasis on current engineering practice Logically arranged material for ease of reference
This handy reference guide to modern '74'- series and '4000'- series digital ICs presents 620 useful and carefully selected circuits, diagrams, graphs and tables, supported by informative text and captions. Detailed descriptions of and practical applications information on more than 185 TTL and CMOS ICs are provided. This wealth of information is clearly and logically arranged so that specific information can be quickly and easily located. Fifteen chapters cover from IC basics and TTL and CMOS principles, to the practical circuitry of logic ICs, waveform generators and multiplexers. While aimed at practical design engineers and technicians, this pocket book will also be of use to amateurs and students of electronics. The subject is dealt with in a readable and essentially non-mathematical manner, with the emphasis on practical 'user' information and circuitry.
Newnes Microprocessor Pocket Book explains the basic hardware operation of a microprocessor and describes the actions of the various types of instruction that can be executed. A summary of the characteristics of many of the popular microprocessors is presented. Apart from the popular 8- and 16-bit microprocessors, some details are also given of the popular single chip microcomputers and of the reduced instruction set computer (RISC) type processors such as the Transputer, Novix FORTH processor, and Acorn ARM processor. Comprised of 15 chapters, this book discusses the principles involved in both parallel and serial input-output interfaces and gives details of the common standards used for pa...
This latest edition of the Newnes Data Communications Pocket Book has been substantially updated to keep abreast with the rapid pace of developments in data communications technology. New topics have been introduced - data compression, the Internet and World-Wide Web, HyperText Mark-up Language - existing material has been updated and expanded. Despite the complexity of subject, this wealth of information is presented succinctly and in such a way, using tables, diagrams and brief explanatory text, as to allow the user to locate information quickly and easily. Thus the book should be invaluable to those involved with the installation, commissioning and maintenance of data communications equipment, as well as the end user. Mike Tooley is the well known author of many books including the Newnes Computer Engineer's Pocket Book, now in its fourth edition.

This is a study of the noted newspaper proprietor, publisher and editor, George Newnes and his involvement in the so-called New Journalism in Britain from 1880 to 1910. The author examines seven of Newnes’s most successful periodicals - Tit-Bits (1881), The Strand Magazine (1891), The Million (1892), The Westminster Gazette (1893), The Wide World Magazine (1898), The Ladies’ Field (1898) and The Captain (1899) - from a biographical, journalistic and broader cultural perspective. Newnes assumed a pioneering role in the creation of the penny miscellany paper, the short-story magazine, the true-story magazine and the respectable boys’ paper, in the development of colour printing, magazine...
