Electrical Engineering 101 covers the basic theory and practice of electronics, starting by answering the question "What is electricity?" It goes on to explain the fundamental principles and components, relating them constantly to real-world examples. Sections on tools and troubleshooting give engineers deeper understanding and the know-how to create and maintain their own electronic design projects. Unlike other books that simply describe electronics and provide step-by-step build instructions, EE101 delves into how and why electricity and electronics work, giving the reader the tools to take their electronics education to the next level. It is written in a down-to-earth style and explains jargon, technical terms and schematics as they arise. The author builds a genuine understanding of the fundamentals and shows how they can be applied to a range of engineering problems. An accompanying CD supplies a simple simulator plus engineering calculators, and the companion website provides rules of thumb, equations and a glossary.This third edition includes more real-world examples and a glossary of formulae. It contains new coverage of: Microcontrollers FPGAs Classes of components Memory (RAM, ROM, etc.) Surface mount High speed design Board layout Advanced digital electronics (e.g. processors) Transistor circuits and circuit design Op-amp and logic circuits Use of test equipmentFEATURE: Written in a down-to-earth style, with humour and easy-to-understand language, the book also takes care to explain jargon and technical terms.BENEFIT: Gives readers a simple explanation of complex concepts, in terms they can understand and relate to everyday life. Other books can be dry and too 'academic' in tone.FEATURE: Rules of Thumb included throughout the book.BENEFIT: Consolidates what the reader has learned, making the principles easier to remember and apply.FEATURE: Updated content throughout and new material on the latest technological advances.BENEFIT: Ensures that the reader can relate their understanding of the fundamentals to up-to-date real-world situations and applications.FEATURE: The accompanying CD-ROM and website contain a reference library of electronics information, with demo simulation software and engineering calculators.BENEFIT: Gives readers an invaluable set of tools and references that they can use in their everyday work.
