Overview

Scroggie's Foundations is a classic text for anyone working with electronics, who needs to know the art and craft of the subject. Based on experience since the dawn of the electronic age, and updated in regular editions over 60 years, it covers both the theory and practical aspects of a huge range of topics from valve and tube technology, and the application of cathode ray tubes to radar, to digital tape systems and optical recording techniques.

Since Foundations of Wireless was first published over 60 years ago, it has helped many thousands of readers to become familiar with the principles of radio and electronics. The original author Sowerby was succeeded by Scroggie in the 1940s, whose name became synonymous with this classic primer for practitioners and students alike. Stan Amos, one of the fathers of modern electronics and the author of many well known books in the area, took over the revision of this book in the 1980s and it is he, with his son, who have produced this latest version.

The flavour of this book remains unchanged. Its original aim was to be 'non-mathematical in treatment' and be an 'elementary textbook'. With the use of example and analogy, the field of electronics is covered in depth with a lightness of touch not usually found in technical work.

In this latest edition, Foundations provides much more than just the basics. Not only has the book been reset and revised throughout, but also new sections on digital technology, and storage and recording, have been added. This book has always been a companion and guide for those involved in electronics, from the early days of radio to the latest digital revolution.
