9780521370950: The Art of Electronics

This is the thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the hugely successful The Art of Electronics. Widely accepted as the authoritative text and reference on electronic circuit design, both analog and digital, this book revolutionized the teaching of electronics by emphasizing the methods actually used by circuit designers -- a combination of some basic laws, rules of thumb, and a large bag of tricks. The result is a largely nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit intuition, brainstorming, and simplified calculations of circuit values and performance. The new Art of Electronics retains the feeling of informality and easy access that helped make the first edition so successful and popular. It is an ideal first textbook on electronics for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone, professional or amateur, who works with electronic circuits.

About the Author:

Winfield Hill has held positions at numerous organisations, including Harvard University's Electronic Design Center and Sea Data Corporation. Currently he is the Director of Electronics Engineering at the Rowland Institute for Science where he has designed some 250 electronic instruments. Recent interests include high-voltage RF (to 15kV) and precision high-current electronics (to 6000A).

Paul Horowitz is a Professor of Physics and of Electrical Engineering at Harvard University, where in 1974 he originated the Laboratory Electronics course from which emerged The Art of Electronics. In addition to his work in circuit design and electronic instrumentation, his research interests have included observational astrophysics, X-ray and particle microscopy, and optical interferometry. He is one of the pioneers of the search for intelligent life beyond Earth (SETI). He has also served as a member of the JASON Defense Advisory Group. He is the author of some two hundred scientific articles and reports, has consulted widely for industry and government, and is the designer of numerous scientific and photographic instruments.

Review:

"Full of clever circuits and sharp insights, but with a surprising minimum of mathematics... The depth is genuine, as is the richness of examples, data and apt tricks."
Scientific American

"Far and away the finest book on the subject of electronics ... in the last decade. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone whose research or experiments require some electronics."
Optical Engineering

"A delightful book...The circuits actually work, the schematics are all readable."
Review of Scientific Instruments

"This book is filled with a tremendous diversity of valuable information. More importantly, this book is a joy to read...It's not at all like studying--it's too much fun."
EDN (News Edition)

"This book provides a painless way to learn about electronic design. It is also a good read for those already experienced in electronics."
EDN (Magazine Edition)

"..it comes as close as any book we've seen to fulfilling the promise inherent in its title...written as though to educate the novice, but practicing engineers will encounter many useful tidbits they didn't know, hadn't thought about, or had long forgotten."
Analog Dialogue

"...a refreshingly simple, practical and comprehensive textbook on the subject of electronic circuit behavior and design...one of the few contemporary practical reference handbooks on electronic design basics."
Physics in Canada

"A lovely book, it covers a wealth of electronic topics in a very readable style."
Richard Morin, Sunexpert

"The second volume carries on une grande tradition as well as adding 400 new pages to the original (already massive) text. It is, without doubt, the book for the practical engineer. No cerebral theorizing here, no long sections of abstruse mathematical derivations; just page after page of solid empirical engineering. It is also light hearted and anecdotal, with some wonderful pages of bad ciruit 'howlers' that the authors have encountered."
John V. Hatfield, IJEEE

"...an excellent general electronic textbook."
Poptronics

"The best self-teaching book and reference book in electronics... The beauty and fun of electronics shows through."
Radio Communication

"Another electronics textbook that became an international best-seller... the book is renowned for presenting the techniques that circuit designers actually use."
IEEE Spectrum
