HI

I am interested in finding a good book explaining the ins and outs of electronics. I have ordered (but not received) The Art Of Electronics, and TAOE Student Guide, but I am unsure whether it really contains the really basic stuff! For instance, what I would like to find in a books index:

What is, how does it work, and WHY use it:
* Transistor
* Triac
* pull-up resistor
* etc etc

In addition, I *really* don't like math..

Any suggestions?

Ole Petter

It's a superb book.  Horowitz and Hill cover all the things you ask about in
a clear, easy to understand manner with the minimum of math.  It's been a
while since I've open mine, but I learned an awfull lot from that book
before I ever went to  university.

The Art of Electronics is an excellent book. There are a few of the more advanced topics that don't
get treated too well (I seem to remember that some of the rf stuff is glossed over a little), and
the book is getting a little out of date now - the circuits often serve a lot better as explanations
to design techniques (which is what they are intended for) than they would for actual practical use
(what you couldn't do with a PIC you would probably be able to do with an FPGA).


Regards,
Simon

You will never have more than a very cursory understanding of electronics
without the willingness to use the necessary tools.  Don't expect to ever
design a circuit without using math.

Ofcourse, I will learn the math when it becomes necessary, but I *really*
dont like learning the basics of a transistor with
i(x)=Q'vx=[-WC"ox(I(vox-VTN)][-unEx]

Hi

I don't think that the Triac part i covered within A.O.E. I once tried to
look it up, but couldn't find the subject.

Hi Ole,

The equation you gave looks like some mosfet device physics equation. Most
microelectronic circuit design books cover quite a bit of device physics
before getting into the meat of circuit design. You won't find that in Art
of Electronics. Also, the type of math which is used in circuit design is
(generally) a lot easier to understand and deal with than the jumble of
symbols with two and three subscripts which is usually found in device stuff.

It's the best book available...

Don't shy away from the maths. It will most definately help you in the
long run.

Yup, You won't be sorry. I bought mine in 1982 and I call it my bible in
elecronics. It has been rebound twice. I know the MCU section on mine is
outdated but the rest is the same. It has helped me a lot over the
years.
There is some maths involved, but not overly so. It does tell you how
and why.
