A chapter on advanced assembly language programming structured around computer arithmetic topics is followed by treatment of fundamental microcontroller interfacing topics such as parallel IO, asynchronous serial IO, synchronous serial IO, interrupt-driven IO, timers, analog-to-digital conversion, and digital-to-analog conversions.
One proposed fix, widely advocated within the content industries, is to "mark" all commercial content that needs to be controlled-perhaps with a broadcast flag (a string of bits contained in the digital broadcasting stream) or perhaps with watermark technology (a hidden mark designed to survive digital-to-analog conversions, as well as the conversions of content that occur routinely in computers and consumer electronics).
