Overview

AN ALL-IN-ONE GUIDE TO ELECTRONIC COMPONENT SPECIFICATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

With this handy benchtop reference, you'll have at your fingertips a one-stop source of practical information on virtually every kind of electronic component. In ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS: A COMPLETE REFERENCE FOR PROJECT BUILDERS, Delton T. Horn provides you with the important working characteristics, specifications, and uses for each component listed.

Horn, a well-known electronics expert, has divided this book into three parts—passive nonamplifying components; active devices (semiconductor components); and miscellaneous devices (for example, transducers and switches). You'll find a wide range of topics that give you all the data necessary for successful experimentation:

* Wire and solder

* Capacitors

* Diodes

* Linear ICs

* Resistors

* Coils and transformers

* Transistors

* Digital ICs

Throughout, Horn presents helpful insights into the theory and operation of components in typical circuit designs, the pros and cons of using devices in various situations, where and how to find parts, and criteria for making substitutions. Armed with this book and a manufacturer's specification sheet, you can be confident that you're choosing the proper components for your circuit designs.

    this book is a wonderful introduction to electronics

    This book is a must have for the beginner. I particulaly appreciated the first chapter on wire and solder because most electronic texts don't include a whole chapter on wire and solder, or the author dosen't think it is neccesary to include such a topic for discussion. The schematic diagrams aided understanding, and helped reinforce the theory. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. When I first got excited and enthusiastic about electronics, I did not know where to start. If that is the way you feel, this is the book to start with. Take my word for it, you will not regret your investment.

    A book with basics.

    This book is about the basics of several electronic components, like transistors, resistors, capacitors, inverters, switches, potentiometers, gates, and much, much more. It gives schematic forms that explain several pieces. This book I would recommend to the electronic beginner and intermediate.
