Figure 7-11

The IC used in the section titled "SPI-Based Clock/Calendar" is a DS1305 from
Maxim/Dallas. Figure 7-11 has the IC labeled incorrectly as a PCF8583, which is a
Phillips Semiconductor part.

(Safari 9.4) 2nd paragraph under RS-422 head;
The last sentence of the second paragraph reads, "Rt is nominally 100-120 W." It
should read "Rt is nominally 100-120 ohms."

1st paragraph

An "11-bit ADC" will quantize the signal into one of 4096 values...
it should be 2048 values, OR
a 12-bit ADC
since 2^11 is 2048

the second paragraph below Figure 15-20

please change the word "database" to "data bus" in the second sentence, so that it now reads,
"...the address decoder triggers the latch to acquire whatever is on the data bus."
