Understanding Electronic Circuits PDF

LIKE ITS COMPANION VOLUME, Understanding Electronic Components, this book deals with one section of the vast subject of electronics, in this case the basic types of circuits which are the daily concern of the electronics engineer. Whereas the previous book concentrated on the components, this book deals with the circuits in which the components operate. Inevitably, some previous knowledge is assumed; in this case of the properties of electronic components and the elementary laws of electrical circuits.

From this starting position, the book explains amplification, oscillation, switching and logic circuits, with an emphasis on understanding the principles involved rather than on rigorous theory.

Particular attention is paid to the rapidly growing use of integrated circuits in electronics, and the merits and limitations of such circuits are discussed in connection with each different application.

Throughout the book, illustrated examples are taken from modern circuit practice, and these illustrations are by no means confined to the familiar consumer products, but also represent industrial, military and communications equipment.

This is not a book for the absolute beginner, but for those who have some circuit wiring experience but who may have little idea how the circuits work. As such it should be of considerable help to the amateur seeking to extend his knowledge, especially of circuits in equipment normally inaccessible to him, to the technician engineer approaching electronic circuitry with the aim of working on industrial or communications equipment, and to the service engineer looking for the principles of circuit action and guidance on possible faults.

This book should also have considerable appeal to students following a modern ‘A’ level Physics course which includes Electronics among the subject matter, and to the undergraduate seeking to obtain an overall picture of electronic circuitry in connection with project or similar work.

A book such as this can be produced only with the wholehearted co-operation of the electronics industry, and I wish to thank those who gave up their valuable time to discuss circuits and applications with me. I also wish to acknowledge the help, information and other assistance unstintingly given by the many firms approached during the writing of this book, in particular, the following: Acoustical Manufacturing Co., Advance Electronics Ltd., A.P.T. Ltd., Brandenburg Ltd., British Radio Corporation, Electrocomponents ( Radiospares) Ltd., Farnell-Tandberg Ltd., Ferrograph Co. Ltd., Jermyn Industries, H. J. Leak, Motorola Semiconductors Inc., Mu/lard Ltd., Philips Ltd., Pye Telecommunications Ltd., GDS (Sales) Ltd. (distributors of Motorola semiconductors), Tandberg Radiofabrikk A.S., Te/equipment Ltd., Texas Instruments Ltd.

I must also mention the kind permission of the Editor of Mu/lard Technical Communications in allowing me to reproduce some circuit information from that most helpful journal. Finally, I must thank my wife for her tolerance, understanding and sheer hard work during the preparation of this book.
