Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover


The most widely used and highly respected reference of its kind, the Standard Handbook of Electronic Engineering (formerly Electronics Engineers' Handbook) has been updated to reflect significant advances in leading-edge electronics technologies.

This new edition covers not only fundamental principles and technologies, but also the latest in hardware, circuits and functions, and applications. It is packed with new data and information on telecommunications, networking, digital signal processing, control systems, audio, video, broadcasting, and more--120 chapters in all. New chapters on instrumentation and test systems, software reliability, systems engineering and management, and automotive electronics have been added. An accompanying CD-ROM features additional reference and archival material. Organizational improvements yield a more usable, manageable resource. The Fifth Edition of the Standard Handbook of Electronic Engineering is a reference every electronics professional will want to own.

Format: Hardcover
This edition of the "Standard Handbook of Electronic Engineering" is the most comprehensive, authoritative reference you will find in the shelves.

This book has all the information you will ever need on Electronic Engineering and related fields. Each topics was written by foremost authorities in their respective fields, limiting mathematical derivation in favor of useful bottom line expressions, stressing references hat are broadly informative rather than those that may be to arcane. The resulting work is intended to be practical rather than tutorial. Nevertheless, while applications and cost considerations are emphasized throughout, theory is included when is deemed to be helpful to comprehension.

This handbook will be useful to a wide range of readers, from undergraduate electrical and computer engineering students, to new graduates and experienced practitioners. Anyone who need quick access to a definition, mathematical expression, or like in my case, any working engineer who may need access to application information related to problems you may be experiencing, or to a new project you think you may be assigned to.

Definitively a must have for anyone related to the field of electronic, electrical or computer engineering. I am an Electronics Engineer, and I has been an industrial practitioner working for the last 16 years in the process industries. I have found this handbook, and its previous versions to be really useful many times.

As an invaluable bonus, you get the CD-ROM which includes 200+ extra pages of in-depth reference and archival material

Format: Hardcover
This book is truely a "must have" on your desk or your book-case. While it is a very weighty volume and the pages are just a tab bit thinner then thety shoudl be it does make for a decent text on the subject matter, although the publishers would do well to break it into 5 or 6 thinner volumes in a better binding and better paper.

The CD is a real asset as you can drop the entire book into your laptop for ready reference when away from the office along with a dozen similar CD's.

All around this is a must have book for any electronics engineer.
