   For years now I have been mainly dealing with digital electronics,
however my knowledge of analog and rf technoligies is extremely lacking. I
was wondering if anybody out there knows links to sites on the net that are
perfect for a begginner in analog and RF electronics. Thanks in advance for
any info. TTYL

I'm sure others will saturate you with links, so I'll just give you a few
of my favorite books, (the dog-eared ones).

The Forrest Mims Engineer's Notebook
by Forrest Mims
HighText Publications, 1992
ISBN: 1-878707-03-5

Forrest Mims' Circuit Scrapbook
by Forrest Mims
Howard W. Sams & Co., 1987
ISBN: 0-672-22552-2

CMOS Cookbook
by Don Lancaster
Howard W. Sams & Co., 1988
ISBN: 0-672-22459-3

IC Op-Amp Cookbook, 3rd Edition
by Walter G. Jung
Howard W. Sams & Co., 1986
ISBN: 0-672-22453-4


Forrest Mims' stuff is good, so are Don Lancaster's Cookbook series, and I
couldn't get by without Jung's book, but the best all around book on
electronics that I know is:

The Art of Electronics
by Paul Horowitz and Winfield Hill
Cambridge University Press, 1989
ISBN 0-521-37095-7

This book is encyclopedic and assumes no knowledge other than algebra for
the most part. Good beginner's stuff, but _great_ stuff for folks who've
been at this a while.

Be sure it's the _second_ edition, which came out in '89. It has a
companion "The Art of Electronics Student Lab Manual" (I believe that's the
title), too.

Hi BN,

You listed some of my favorite books!  ...Wish I'd found Horowitz & Hill
sooner, some of the books I got before it would not have been needed.
Though I'm still happy to have the Lancaster titles, Jung, etc.

Could you tell me what the Forrest Mims' Circuit Scrapbook is like?  I have
his "Engineer's Notebook" (Hightext and R.S. versions) as well as the other
stuff he's done for R.S.  Does the "Scrapbook" cover different territory?
I don't recall ever seeing that one.

Thanks,
Randy

Buy The Art of Electronics, by Horowitz and Hill, and the ARRL Handbook
for Radio Amateurs.

I like the Linear Technology Application Handbooks, vols. I, II, and III.
(You can download the app notes from http://www.linear-tech.com, or just have them
send you the paper books.)
The National Semiconductor Linear Applications Handbook is another must-have.

Bob Pease's Troubleshooting Analog Circuits is good if you're going to be
building anything analog, but it's not as useful as the Art of Electronics
or the ARRL handbook as a learning reference.

If you enjoy the Jim Williams app notes in the LT books, you'll like Analog
Circuit Design: Art, Science, and Personalities.

What an amazing book. It isn't a comprehensive tutorial but it is
pervaded with the 'spirit' of analogue circuit design. I got my copy
from Fry's in LA.

As a result of the glowing recommendations in this list, I went out
and bought a copy of The Art of Electronics a few months ago.  I agree
that it is a very good book, but there are two other books that have
been around for years (mine is probably 20 years old and still
relevant) that are being overlooked.

  The Radio Handbook
  The ARRL Amateurs Handbook. (i think this is the name).

Of the two, I would recommend the Radio Handbook as the second book is
more specific to amateur radio.

IMHO, The Radio Handbook is actually a better tutorial and reference
than The Art of Electronics, and every few years it gets an "upgrade"
in the form of a new edition.  I think my copy from 20 years ago was
the 20th edition.  It covers everything from the basics up to
sophisticated analog and digital electronics, including obviously, RF,
and unlike The Art of Electronics, also includes some simple to
complex construction projects, including test gear.

Add to that a better reference section at the end of the book, and I
believe you have a superior "must have" guide for anyone involved in
electronics.

Do I sound like a fan?  I am.
