I am new to CNC and would really appreciate if anyone guides me to an article on the web that explains in detail various components (and how they work) of CNC. I did try wikipedia, google and how stuff works but could not find anything convincing.
www.linuxcnc.org <<<<<< a site oriented to EMC a CNC pacakage for Linux. Don't let that stop you as they have some very good information there of a general nature. Or did have before thier web site rebuild.
The rtai web site. <<<<<<< Information on realtime programming.
www.opencores.org <<<<<<< If you really want to get down to brass tacks they have IP available for rolling your own chips!
www.opencollector.org <<<<< a database, amongst other things, of interesting non main stream software. Electrical engineering related but flexible.
One link I've seem to have lost was to a university in OHIO. Had interesting stuff related to realtime programming and servos.
