The first book in the new Elektor LabWorX collection, Mastering the I²C Bus, takes you on a journey of discovery in the world of the I²C bus and its uses. Along with the bus protocol, it devotes a lot of attention to practical applications and designing a solid system. The most common I²C-compatible chip classes are covered in detail. Two prototyping boards are available for rapid prototype development. They are complemented by a USB to I²C probe and a software framework for controlling I²C devices from your own computer. All sample programs can be downloaded from the LabWorX support page.


LabWorX is a collection of books devoted to specific topics in electronics. Each volume condenses all the information, applications and notes accumulated during hands-on work with the technology concerned, all in one book. Along with the basics of the technology, they include in-depth examples and applications, as well as troubleshooting tips to help you sort out circuits that don’t work right. Some of the books have optional circuit boards so you can try out the ideas described in the book. Additionally, a website provides updates and sample program code where applicable.


Other titles in the collection (to be published later) are: Surface Mount Devices; USB Interfaces; Ethernet Interfaces; SPI Bus; Power Supplies; PIC Processors; AVR Processors; ARM Processors; Cortex Processors; FPGAs (and more!).
