Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for previous volumes:

"Looking for a good electronic circuit cookbook? This is it." -- Monitoring Times

"...extremely popular with engineering students, electronic hobbyists, and others...this is truly an invaluable storehouse." -- American Reference Books Annual

Designed for quick reference and on-the-job use, the Encyclopedia of Electronic Circuits, Volume 5 puts more than 1,000 state-of-the-art electronic and integrated circuit designs at your fingertips. Organized alphabetically into 135 categories, this all-new collection of circuits includes the latest designs from industry leaders such as National Semiconductor, RCA, Texas Instruments, Motorola, Teledyne, and others.

Inside, you'll find diagrams and schematics for circuits used in:
* Alarm and security systems
* Audio amplifiers
* Computers
* Frequency meters
* Gas and smoke detectors
* Oscilloscopes
* Receivers
* Waveform generators
* Temperature sensors
* Video amplifiers

...and many other applications. For each circuit, you'll find a brief explanation of its operation and other information regarding adjustments or alignment. An invaluable reference tool, this book also includes a cumulative index that covers all of the circuits included here and in each of the previous four volumes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
For school creation of simple electronic devices this series can't be beat. The two biggest problems with the early volumes were the binding and the index. The index often failed to reference the circuit you were searching for and the binding was poor, unable to withstand normal usage. When this series first appeared the emphasis was on new technology. Later volumes tried to mimic earlier device coverage and this was a serious mistake, the technologies had moved on. Still, if you are looking for quick ideas for a power supply or an instrument component, this can be a helpful place to start. A fanatic with time on his/her hands might come up with a new version with Spice models, a CD with searchable index, PC artwork, a netlist, and a parts list for each project. Needless to say none of this was available in the 1980's when this series began. Since these projects were generally copied as just the circuit diagram from magazine articles, they often are missing parts numbers or adequate information for correct construction. With today's technology, the whole article could be included on disk!

IF you are looking for a source of Circuits that components are still available this is it. This being one of 7 volumes from a year that is very much in demand. The variety of circuits in this volume spans from the ultra simple to moderately difficult as well as useful. It is supplied with analog and digital, radio, communication, fun, utility as well hard to find circuits. It also has circuits that have been brought forward an modernized to make use of current components. There are also circuits that are new and employ IC technology and MOS-LSI chips. The index in this volume also makes reference to earlier volumes that have circuits that this volume does not cover. This book can pay for itself rapidly for the right person.

This is a great reference. It's nice to have a few examples of how someone else has solved a problem before you go into your own design. Of course, you will want to own the complete library. All volumes have a reference in the back that includes previous volumes. This is handy. You only need to use the reference in the last volume you own to find a list of everything.
