Now, revised with state-of-the-art information on all the modern advances in electronics, this classic sourcebook is more complete than ever! This is a thorough examination of dozens of components, including the latest photoelectronic and digital IC components. You'll learn exactly what each one is, what it looks like, what it does, and in what types of circuits it is used. With this type of basic groundwork in the practical side of electronics, the subject can be quite simple. To make the discussion more practical, there are 51 suggested working circuits you can build. Some of the many specific topics you'll find covered include: Autotransformers Field-effect transistors Phase-shift oscillators Digital systems ICs Parallel-tuned circuits Microprocessors Variable resistive devices Rectifiers Bus-bar assemblies Photovoltaic cells The superheterodyne Radio and Television Novices and experienced experimenters alike will find this to be the most useful electronics book available. It has all the fundamentals of electronics practice combined with the latest electronics technology - all in one comprehensive sourcebook!
