Half Duplex Data Communication between Two computers using LASER is a senior project design for EE 411 course. After going through a hard time I represent this project which involves C/C++ programming in addition with two electronic circuits to send data between two computers using the parallel port. At the beginning of this report, I will present background about the project in chapter one. Then, in chapter two I will give brief information about each component that I used. Moreover, in Chapter three will be about the circuit Construction. After that, I will present information about C programming and the Codes that I used in chapter four. The next chapter will be about implementation and testing the circuit to show the results. The last chapter is conclusion.

Acknowledgments: First of all, I would like to thank my advisor Dr. Mohammad Ousman for his guidance in the project and helping me to understand the importance procedure of the project. He was great working with me on the project to get useful information as possible. His suggestions and ideas were very helpful to me to complete my project. Furthermore, I would to thank the lab engineer Mr. Azeddine Hamroouni for his support and guidance in this project. Finally, I would like to thank the University of Hail especially electrical engineering department. The electrical department is helped me in my life and build a good knowledge for me.

...custom-built machine. Building a PC from the ground up means it's perfectly crafted to fit your needs, whether you're a hardcore gamer, video editor extraordinaire, or you're just trying to build a low- or high-powered home theater PC. In some instances, you may save some money, and in all instances you'll have accomplished a project that you'll benefit from for years—a pretty great feeling in and of itself. That said, building is much more time consuming than buying, and your first time through, it can be daunting. This week's Night School series will walk you through building your first (or second, or third) computer from start to finish. Today, we'll be talking about the first step in any computer build: brainstorming what kind of machine you're looking to make and what that means for your hardware. The Types of Machines and their Ballpark Costs Much like we did in our original spec-crafting feature, the the first thing you need to do is come up with a very, very rough idea of what kind of performance you want from your machine. The easiest way to do that is to split builds it up into three general categories:  Low Performance: If you're looking for a simple PC for web browsing, email checking, or video watching, a low performance machine is probably the way to go. These machines are small, don't draw a lot of power, and are usually pretty quiet, which is great (though they obviously sacrifice performance for those perks). Nettops, home theater PCs, and (on a more......

...| PC Technology Advancement | | ITT TECH | | | | Personal computers have long been a mainstay for homes around the globe. With uses such as internet surfing, communication, homework and finance tracking and business the personal computer has been a valuable asset. As the computer evolves during the next 20 years the possibilities seem endless. Here are some of the ways computers may evolve in the next 20 years. As technology develops and improves so does the personal computer. Smaller and faster computer chips are constantly being developed which personalize the computer even more. Stronger and more powerful micro processers will create a more realistic visual environment which will make interaction with the personal computer even easier. The next generation of chips will also provide better interaction through speech and visual recognition. Current programs are able to recognize and respond to your voice but future programs will also be able to read your lips through visual recognition which can be useful to those who are unable to speak. As you dictate to your computer it will recognize when you leave and it will stop dictating. As further developments are made in interactive software our personal lives will become simpler. The next generation computer will be able to learn from our past internet browsing and help us to improve upon it. Tasks such as internet shopping will be made easier by tracking prior......

...PC game "Personal computer game" redirects here. For video games in general, see video game. For other uses, "Computer Games" redirects here. For the album by George Clinton, see Computer Games (album). PC games, also known as computer games, are video games played on a general-purpose personal computer rather than a dedicated video game console or arcade machine. Their defining characteristics include a lack of any centralized controlling authority and greater capacity in input, processing, and output. PC games reached widespread popularity following the video game crash of 1983, particularly in Europe, leading to the era of the "bedroom coder". From the mid-90s onward they lost mass-market traction to console games before enjoying a resurgence in the mid-2000s through digital distribution. The uncoordinated nature of the PC game market and its lack of physical media make precisely assessing its size difficult.

...CIS 10 | PC Gaming | | Ryan Mills 4-24-2014 | PCs are a good choice for gaming for a multitude of reasons, including but not limited to price, reparability, upgradability, value, versatility, performance, game selection, game prices, and more. Computers are an ever-evolving platform. It grows in power, capability, and value almost every single year. The cause of this improvement is partially because it is free of control from any single entity. Rather than being regulated by a single company, control and improvement influence over the PC belongs to everyone equally. Everybody has the freedom to create and/or sell software and hardware for it. It's being constantly improved by competing companies and individuals all over the hardware spectrum, and all of them are trying to offer you (and game developers) the best experience possible. A common misconception is that pc gaming is more expensive than consoles. It is not. Especially if you only plan to target console performance. There are already graphics cards available on the market for $150 that surpass the PS4 and XBox One in terms of frame rate, resolution, detail, value, and power draw. A lot of people incorrectly believe that you have to spend upwards of $750-$1000 to get a PC fully capable of handling games. These inaccuracies can be attributed partially to the highly vocal and misinformed masses, and to the availability and hype of the expensive PC hardware we see advertised a lot. You see it more because......

Pc Upgrades

...PC Upgrades Michael Ganoe I replaced the keyboard and mouse with the Logitech MK320 wireless ones. The approximate cost would be $40 plus tax. I also installed the device driver and software to be able to use the wireless keyboard and mouse. I choose the MK320 because I liked the looks of it and because of the relatively low cost. I unplugged the current keyboard and mouse from the pc. I used the provided cd to install the device drivers and software. Once installed I paired the keyboard and mouse with the pc. This allows easy use of the mouse and keyboard without the limitations of the wired version. I replaced the pc memory with the G.Skill Trident X Series 8GB. The approximate cost would be $75 dollars plus tax. I choose this memory card because 8GB is more than enough memory. I removed all media from the pc. I turned the pc off. I unplugged the power supply to the pc. I unplugged all attached cables from the pc. I lifted the plastic shield on the back on the pc stand. I used a flat-head screwdriver to remove the screw that secures the cover. I removed the cover. I then pressed outwards on the tabs on the right and left sides of the memory card to release it. I held the card by the edges and removed it from the compartment. I then oriented the new card with the notch on the edge facing forward and to the right. I held the card by its edges and slide it all the way into the slot pushing downward until it snapped into place. I put the......

...Stakeholder Engagement; (4) Program Governance; and, (5) Program Strategy Alignment. 3. It is clear that AtekPC never really had a Charter to guide them in developing its PMO. Draft a Program Charter for AtekPC (no longer than 3 pages) that incorporates the basic elements of a program charter discussed in your lecture materials for Week 2. Remember, the Charter is a high level document so it does not require the detail of your project scope and specifications and other project documents. Please note that there are important differences between project charters that focus on the iron triangle (scope, cost, schedule) and program charters that focus on the Program Management Domains and Program Benefit Delivery. The Project Management Office was introduced to AtekPC because of the continuous changes and stresses that were on the personal computer industry. The industry was in transition with falling profit margins. “The PC Industry was experiencing tremendous cost pressure and was undergoing a period of consolidation. As profit margins fell, PC makers were launching cost reduction strategies aimed at further improving efficiency of their supply chains, while lowering the cost of distribution” (Hupp, Keil, & McFarlan). Corporations and consumers were keeping their personal computers for a longer period of time before buying a new one because of the difficulty of transitioning to a new computer and the cost associated with upgrading.

Upgrading a Pc

...Upgrading a PC Rodolfo Garcia Jr. EET250 Computer Configuration I ECPI University Abstract This paper covers the topics of upgrading a PC with new components such as RAM, Wireless Devices, larger Hard Drive, and a new Optical drive. This paper will discuss the prices and benefits of performing these upgrades. Keywords: Motherboard, CPU, RAM, PCI, SATA, technician, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, USB, Hard Drive, Optical Drive, DVD, Blu-Ray, HDMI, 1080p video. Upgrading a PC As technology changes, so does the needs of the average PC user. When technology outpaces the capabilities of your PC, many people choose to upgrade their device instead of purchasing a completely new system which sometimes happens after a couple of months. There are several ways to upgrade a PC to keep it up to date with the emerging technology. When the motherboard and CPU are relatively newer, they are often capable of keeping up with the newest demands placed on them, however other components could benefit from an upgrade to improve performance and stability. Some of the most common upgrades include new or additional RAM, wireless devices such as a keyboard and mouse, larger and/or faster hard drive, and a new optical drive that is capable of handling the demands of new video and storage capabilities. Upgrading RAM is probably the single best option for improving speed and performance of a system. When it comes to upgrading RAM there are a few things to keep in mind such as the......

Pc Industry

...From the mid 1970’s the structure of the PC industry had experienced a huge growth and changed dramatically. In 2001, 40% of the PC shipments were accounted by the top four PC vendors namely: Dell, Compaq, Hewlett-Packard (HP) and IBM. Dell, a direct-sales pioneer, grew exponentially in the 1990s and emerged as the worldwide market leader in 2001. During 2001-2002 it was the most profitable among the market leaders. Compaq came up with a full range of PCs ranging between $1,000 and $10,000. Whereas, IBM, which at once had a market share of 30%, was at this time going through a dramatic restructuring to stop its market share and profits from deteriorating further. Whereas, HP maintained a comparatively smaller share in PC sales. Besides these main vendors, there existed other well-known brands such as Acer, Fujitsu, Gateway, NEC and Toshiba. Also, there existed PCS without brands which were assembled by small retailers, resellers accounting for about 23% of the market in North America, 50% in Europe and over two-thirds of the market in China. DELL: Dell’s distinct and successful business model mainly focused on direct sales and build-to-order manufacturing. Shipping of the products was provided in 36 hours, which was how Dell was able to maintain the inventory of as low as six days compared to Compaq’s 26 days inventory. Their model helped them achieve the goal of offering products to customers that accurately matched their requirements and liking. COMPAQ: Compaq was......
