Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2014
Pages: 450

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

How much do you need to know about electronics to create something interesting, or creatively modify something that already exists? If you’re in a technical field such as software development, and don’t have much experience with electronics components, this hands-on reference helps you find answers to technical questions quickly.

Filling the gap between a beginner’s primer and a formal textbook, Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques explores aspects of electronic components and techniques that you would typically learn on the job and from years of experience. Even if you’ve worked with electronics, or have a background in electronics theory, you’re bound to find important information that you may not have encountered before.

Among the book’s many topics, you’ll discover how to:

  • Read the data sheet for an electronic component
  • Use a variety of tools involved with electronics work
  • Assemble various types of connectors
  • Minimize noise and interference on a signal interface circuit

Explore topics not usually covered in theoretical books, and go deeper into practical aspects than a step-by-step, project-oriented approach, with Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques.

        Comments about oreilly Practical Electronics: Components and Techniques:

        this book really is practical. it explains exactly what you need to start understanding how to work with all these Arduinos & Co.
        Everything is explained in simple Terms, but exhaustive enough to grok it.

        Unfortunately it is still an "Early Release", so some more meaty parts are missing, but what is already here is very promising!
