An extensive library of 1,000 circuits from the bestselling, six-volume Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits. Praise for previous volumes: "Looking for a good electronic circuit cookbook? This is it."--Modern Times. "A treasurehouse...an invaluable reference tool for every hobbyist, technician, student, and design professional,"--Electronics For You. "...a ready source to which to turn for just about any type of circuit you can imagine...--Modern Electronics. New in the bestselling series! One thousand more leading-edge circuit designs! Designed for quick reference and on-the-job use, the Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits, Volume 7, puts over 1000 state-of-the-art electronic and integrated circuit designs at your fingertips. Organized alphabetically by circuit type, this all-new collection includes the latest designs from industry giants such as Advanced Micro Devices, Motorola, Teledyne, General Electric, and others. For each circuit, you'll find a brief explanation of its operation and other information regarding adjustments or alignment. An invaluable reference tool, this book also includes a cumulative index that covers all the circuits here and in each of the previous 6 volumes.

This fourth volume in a series that has sold more than 175,000 copies, includes schematics and descriptions for the latest circuitry used in computers, controls, instrumentation, telecommunications, sensors, and numerous other electronics applications. An ideal companion to previous volumes, this monumental work features more than 1,000 all-new circuits in 100 alphabetically-arranged categories. Clear, comprehensive, and meticulously organized, this is by far the best source of modern circuit designs for hobbyists and professionals.
