Encyclopedia of electronic components

Charles Platt (Author)
Want to know how to use an electronic component? This three-volume set includes key information on electronics parts for your projects -- complete with photographs, schematics, and diagrams. You'll learn what each one does, how it works, why it's useful, and what variants exist. No matter how much you know about electronics, you'll find fascinating details you've never come across before. Perfect for teachers, hobbyists, engineers, and students of all ages, this reference puts reliable, fact-checked information right at your fingertips -- whether you're refreshing your memory or exploring a component for the first time. Beginners will quickly grasp important concepts, and more experienced users will find the specific details their projects require. This set is unique: the first and only encyclopedia set on electronic components, distilled into three separate volumes. This set is incredibly detailed: includes information distilled from hundreds of sources. This set is instructive: each component description provides details about substitutions, common problems, and workarounds. The Encyclopedia of Electronic Components is comprehensive: Volume 1 covers power, electromagnetism, and discrete semi-conductors; Volume 2 includes integrated circuits, and light and sound sources; Volume 3 covers a range of sensing devices. - Publisher
