From the Back Cover

This one-stop reference--from one of the best selling authors in the field--combines the traditional circuit "cookbook" with state-of-the-art troubleshooting techniques--enabling you to build, test, and customize a wealth of useful circuit types. Packed with 600 illustrations, the book features only new (they do not appear in earlier volumes) pre-designed circuits that are grouped by function. With the help of this productivity tool, you can: Learn to apply over 600 circuits commonly used in all areas of electronics; Discover how these circuits operate and where they fit into various electronic equipment; Get practical guidance on testing and debugging routines that allow you to easily integrate circuits into your existing systems; Access full details on component values. You'll find unsurpassed coverage of microprocessor-supervisory circuits...interface circuits ... multiplexer/ switch circuits...bridge-based circuits ... high-speed (wideband) circuits...op-amp and comparator circuits...power-supply circuits...battery/micropower circuits...A/D and D/A converter circuits. It's all here in one complete resource--the savvy you need to put today's circuits to work, and the troubleshooting expertise to use when things don't go as planned. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

John Lenk wrote this four volume series of McGraw Hill Circuits in the late 90s, and they have now become classics, some (especially volume 4) going for over $300 at various times, depending on supply fluctuations. Sheets also wrote a 7 volume series at the same time that was filled with bad circuits, mistakes and a truckload of inaccuracies and non working circuits. In contrast, Lenk's books are true gems. We've tested the majority of the circuits in all four of his volumes and there are only a few minor errors in the WHOLE series!

For reference, I'm the head of Engineering at Payroy dot com, and my job is to spot pirated circuits and get their inventors credit and proper pay. Just like older algorithms, some (ahem) "foreign" engineers comb old volumes for either forgotten or public domain circuits they can either poach or re-patent with a few minor tweaks. Each of Lenk's volumes have NEW circuits not covered in the previous editions, and cover both analog and digital.

Of course 17 years later has brought a lot of new movement in quads, parallel processing, etc. that obviously aren't covered, and Linear has come up with many new circuits in that field both in a series of new books and online. One of the best new (2012-2015) series is Platt's Encyclopedia of Components, which give sweet spots and limitations for components, not just circuits. The first volume is Encyclopedia of Electronic Components Volume 1: Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors, Switches, Encoders, Relays, Transistors and the second is
