    Browsing through the threads here I notice that a large majority of questions are of a very basic nature, not being 'funny' here, I have a suggestion.....

    Go out and get yourself a copy of The Art of Electonics by Horowitz & Hill. Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-37095-7.

    Now this is not a boring text book that you normally would associate with electronics, it's well written and in its own way a good read.

    The last edition (the second) was published in the early 90s, apart from the sections dealing with microprocessors and the like it's still applicable today. The rules of maths and physics haven't changed unless I blinked.

    It will answer 95% of the questions posted in this forum. I only wish it was around when I was studying!

    Steve A.

    P.S. I have no connection with the authors or publishers.

    If one is to entice anyone in this world, they must firstly identify a problem, then highlight how that problem will never be solved, and then...................given your own patience, suggest how those who among you most desperately sought an answer..............

    Now, think about watching..........about SEEING the world in that way...........

    And you are speechless in this forum.............(?)........for such a length of time?


    Does a theory of everything therefore need to be purely theoretical and only account for the known laws and forces in handling the improbability of fortune telling?

    the www feature below can explain it better.

    Hi,

    My friend told me if that book is good one. Before I know that book, I browsed in my campus library. Then I found very good book one.

    I have recommendation here. I haven’t read it yet but I suggest you to read Practical Electronics for Inventors.[2000.ISBN0070580782] , McGraw-Hill. I sure every one will accept it as a good one.

    p.s. Try it your self.

    Steve Anderson, hope you're still around.

    Can you help with Exercise 2.1? How do you derive the formula for output impedance?

    I am not aware of the actual problem presented but the standard procedure for any impedance estimate is to apply a voltage to the node and calculate the current flowing . Then



    These are usually ac quantities. In some cases these impedances have been pre-calculated for a particular topology and a simple formula based on component values can be used. Alternatively you can enter the circuit on MicroCap (free demo version from Spectrum) and it will run a simulation for AC, DC and transient analysis if you want (and it's extremely user friendly!)

    home electronic products use energy when they're off to power features like clock displays and remote controls. u.s. households spend $100 per year to power devices while they are in this "standby" power mode. products that have earned the energy star use less energy to perform these functions, while providing the same performance and features as conventional models. using less energy preserves energy resources and helps reduce the risks of global warming while saving money on energy bills.

    The study of new semiconductor devices and related technology is considered a branch of physics whereas the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems comes under electronics engineering. This article focuses on engineering aspects of electronics.

    Hello

    The study of semiconductor and all electronic components this would help foul for you you can get a better knowledge about all electronic parts

    Electronics is a science not an art.
