LabWorX: Straight from the Lab to your Brain
Mastering the I²C Bus takes you on an exploratory journey of the I²C Bus and its applications. Besides the Bus protocol plenty of attention is given to the practical applications and designing a solid system. The most common I²C compatible chip classes are covered in detail.
Two experimentation boards are available that allow for rapid prototype development. These boards are completed by a USB to I²C probe and a software framework to control I²C devices from your computer. All samples programs can be downloaded from the LabWorX support page.

LabWorX is a collection of books, each handling a particular topic in the field of electronics. Each volume condenses all the information, applications and notes collected during hands-on work with the covered technology, all into one book. Besides the basics of the technology, in-depth examples and applications are given as well as troubleshooting tips on how to proceed if the initial implementation fails. The books provide a centralised repository of knowledge, each handling a particular technology. Each book may have optional circuit boards that let the reader try out the material covered. Also a website provides up-to-information and software code examples where applicable. This will make your life easier when dealing with the subject at hand. It is literally going from our lab to your brain so that you too can master the subject.
