3rd paragraph

These switching regulators are available in tiny surface-mount SO-8 or in standard DIP (Dual Inline Package) packages (discussed in Chapter 4) and require only two external components. switching regulators should be: linear regulators (http://www.maxim-ic.com/quick_view2.cfm/qv_pk/1131)

Figure 4-1

The footprints of the surface mount and through hole components are incorrect with respect to pins 5,6,7,8 on both footprints shown. The actual footprints should have the following pin assignments: 1 |-----| 8 2 | | 7 3 | | 6 4 |-----| 5 This error is extremely important especially if one were to design a printed circuit board using components with similar footprints, DIP through hole components are very common as are surface mount. AUTHOR: I checked the book, and the reader is quite correct. > That's a major fault. With electronics diagrams, every marking, > name and number, and where and how they appear is vitally important. > Things just fail to work if diagrams are reproduced exactly as the > originals.

Figure 10-7

Figure 10-7 has two "C1" capacitors listed, but no "C2". The bottom capacitor should be labeled "C2", not C1.

Figure 10-23 - and paragraph directly above it

on Page 230, there is figure 10-23 showing USB Data Packets. The Data area is labeled "Data 0-1023 bits". The paragraph directly above the figure states, "A single data packet can transfer between 0 and 1023 bytes." The original diagram had "bytes", but it seems to have been corrupted to "bits".
