9781856177009: Electronics Explained: The New Systems Approach to Learning Electronics

Don’t worry if you never took a physics course, you can easily update your electronics knowledge by following Lou’s clear and logical systems-level approach. When you finish this book you will understand different types of electronic circuits, how they work, and how they fit together to create modern electronic equipment, enabling you to apply, use, select, operate and discuss common electronic products and systems. And all this is explained using basic functional building blocks rather than detailed circuit analysis!

  • Introduces you to the principles that form the basis of electronics, including the core concepts of how to generate current flow, how to control it, and magnetism.
  • Learn about the basic components of electronics such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits.
  • Discover different types of circuits, using the functional block diagram approach which makes it easy to understand their purpose and application without requiring nitty-gritty circuit analysis.
  • Get a grip on embedded controllers, the single-chip microcontrollers that are built into virtually every electronic device.
  • Get involved with Hands-On projects in each chapter.
  • A fresh look at how electronics work
  • Learn about the inner workings of your HDTV, cell phone, and video game console
  • Hands-on projects and experiments bring electronics to life

About the Author:

Louis E. Frenzel Jr. has been a Technology Editor with Electronic Design magazine since 2000 and covers the wireless, communications, and networking and test/measurement fields Lou has over 30 years of electronic industry experience as an engineer in the geophysical, aerospace and computer fields. Prior to joining ED he was a college professor teaching electronics and semiconductor manufacturing and working on several NSF grants. He holds bachelors and masters degrees and is author of 21 books on communications, computers and electronics.

Review:

"The author, a Technology Editor for Electronic Design, has written an introductory electronics book for people with short attention spans, no scientific or technical knowledge, and “looking for near-instant gratification of electronics knowledge.†Instead of approaching electronics bottom-up beginning with components, then circuits, and finally systems, the author takes a top-down approach, emphasizing block diagrams at the expense of what is in them. One reason is that electronics is now too complicated to understand by non-experts at any but the block-diagram level."

- Dennis L Feucht, en-genius.net
