Product Description

Book Description

Turn to this book if you want to learn about different types of circuits and their behavior. You will gain a deep and intuitive understanding of circuit operation, be exposed to advanced circuit designs, and learn to build analog and digital devices from first principles using basic components. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Tom Hayes reached electronics via a circuitous route that started in law school and eventually found him teaching Laboratory Electronics at Harvard, which he has done for twenty-five years. He has also taught electronics for the Harvard Summer School, the Harvard Extension School, and for seventeen years in Boston University's Department of Physics. He shares authorship of one patent, for a device that logs exposure to therapeutic bright light. He and his colleagues are trying to launch this device with a startup company named Goodlux Technologies. Tom designs circuits as the need for them arises in the electronics course. One such design is a versatile display, serial interface and programmer for use with the microcomputer that students build in the course.

Paul Horowitz is a Professor of Physics and of Electrical Engineering at Harvard University, where in 1974 he originated the Laboratory Electronics course from which emerged The Art of Electronics. In addition to his work in circuit design and electronic instrumentation, his research interests have included observational astrophysics, X-ray and particle microscopy, and optical interferometry. He is one of the pioneers of the search for intelligent life beyond Earth (SETI). He has also served as a member of the JASON Defense Advisory Group. He is the author of some two hundred scientific articles and reports, has consulted widely for industry and government, and is the designer of numerous scientific and photographic instruments. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The title of this first chapter, "Foundations," describes its place pretty well: here you will learn techniques that will underlie circuity that later produces impressive results. Read the first page

Format: Plastic Comb
Laboratory Electronics
(Physics 123 @ Harvard College)
Professors Jay Ewing and Thomas C. Hayes Teaching Fellow Nicholas Judson
A lab-intensive introduction to electronic circuit design. Develops circuit intuition and debugging skills through daily hands-on lab exercises, each preceded by class discussion with minimal use of mathematics and physics. The treatment moves quickly from passive circuits, through design with discrete transistors, then concentrates on application of integrated operational amplifiers to make a variety of circuits including integrators, oscillators, regulators, and filters. The digital half of the course emphasizes the use of programmable logic devices, microprocessors, and microcontrollers, while treating issues that arise in interfacing both analog and digital devices to a computer. Provides an overview of radio and television, digital audio, signal averaging, and construction techniques.
Taught by co-authors of the best-seller "The Arts of Electronics", Thomas C. Hayes. And let nice guy Nick debugging your wiring, What more can you ask for? Watch out though, the course load is extremely heavy (Some people equate it to 1.5 courses.) I found the course enormously useful if you are to encounter circuit design in your future studies.

This book can stand on its own -- but the synergy created with its "big brother" makes it fly!
The physical details of the circuits described will become abundantly clear to the reader -- nothing is left hidden, and performing the lab steps cements this in place.

Quality of this book is sub-par. The pages are so thin you can see the print on the opposite side of the page. Printed in India and half the price of any other Art of Electronics books makes me wonder if this is even a legal copy.

HASH(0xa79a8b88) out of 5 stars Excellent, but not a stand-alone. Aug. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
Either use this manual with another text (such as The Art of Electronics - Horowitz and Hill) or with a good instructor, or both. It does an excellent job of taking you step by step through many circuit building techniques that are essential to electronics and it is a good reference manual. My only complaint is that it tends to pose interesting questions for the reader without ever following up or guiding the reader towards a conclusion. It's good to get you thinking, but unless you have time to delve into every detail with your own investigations, it can be frustrating not to get a clear answer to vague questions and sinarios. Overall, it is a great book and essential for laboratory use. The authors are comical, but not overly so, thus making the venture of reading this book a delight.

Why go to an Electronic school and disk out $10's of thosands, when you can learn most from this book. Be sure to get the LAB book.

Very nice book to accompany their electronics beast! I teach the course and found the student manual to be very helpful to students. More details than the main text, and in a writing style more accessible to the beginner.

HASH(0xa7c9b3d8) out of 5 stars Practical hands on, a step above the BUG BOOK series Oct. 17 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Plastic Comb
Practical hands on, a step above the BUG BOOK series with lots of goodies in the way of real circuits and diagrams that are very easily understood.. True you'll run into 'OL Thevenin , but luckily the book is written so heavy math understanding is not needed.. Read this in 1990 and still refer to it , nice "book" ( i.e. manual to actually design and use circuits ) . I'm trying to locate his "Laboratory Manual" ( I like Z80's better than that Motorola stuff).
