About this deal

I especially like the comments about interpreting specifications and the deconstruction of the Agilent voltmeters is just, well, wonderful. If you do have the assumed background (whether you're a hobbyist breadboard toucher or a trained electrical engineer), The Art of Electronics is a great and extremely practical gap-filler, refresher course, and reference work for everything from simple analog circuits to modern computers.

Literally the worst introduction to transistors I have ever seen, for the past few hours I have been trying to find something worst and it seems impossible.In my first or second quarter in Vocational Electronics, I visited a guy who was a 2nd year BSEE at another college. It defines the current state of the art in electronics … Most parts of the book will continue to be relevant for several decades. For a great beginner’s book, it’s hard to go wrong with Forrest Mims’ “Getting Started in Electronics”. If you want to know all the authors have to say about the 2N3904 transistor, for instance, the index will point you to the twenty-two places in the book that it’s mentioned. I think the major difference between being an EE and a tech is that if you know the math, it’s not as hard to learn about the circuitry design, but if you know the circuitry it’s harder to figure out the math when there is actually a design problem, if you haven’t studied the higher level math.

Chapter 5 details every circuit artifact that I’ve encountered in the past 30 years in a thorough, pragmatic, and straightforward way. Chapter 5 details every circuit artifact that I've encountered in the past thirty years in a through, pragmatic, and straightforward way. For electronic engineering students, [this book] … will help you develop the intuitive understanding, which will make it easier to put the maths in context, and it will be invaluable when you do practical work for design projects. If you’re using a textbook for a class, having the international edition is a pain if it’s different – but if it’s just for personal study, it’s no problem. In the third x-Chapter, you’ll find some good info on selecting FETs for your application, discussions of FET transconductance, the bandwidth of FET circuits (and comparisons to BJTs), a very good discussion of the evolution and current state of power MOSFETs, and a section on integrated MOSFET gate drivers.

The result is a largely nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit intuition, brainstorming, and simplified calculations of circuit values and performance. Natürlich voll auf englisch, aber das ist in der Welt der fortgeschrittenen Elektronik so üblich, da der Leserkreis begrenzt ist.

If you're poor like me, this is a great cheap alternative to more expensive versions of the second edition. Conductors, cables, and connectors are examined to determine the non-ideal effects they can exhibit.A company I worked for had occasional trouble with the distortion of a production audio amplifier, and Bob’s discussion of “Anti-snivet resistors” would have given us the solution we needed sooner.
