The Art of Electronics 3rd Edition

The Art of Electronics was the best book for electronic circuit designers and it has just got better. The book has long been the analogue and digital circuit designers’ bible - every design engineer seemed to possess a copy above his bench or in the office. It was the only book to provide a comprehensive coverage of analogue and digital electronics in an authoritative practical manner. Its second edition was published in 1989 and over 450 000 copies were sold of the first and second editions.
Now the book has been completely revised and comprehensively updated. The first and second editions were widely accepted as the best single authoritative book on electronic circuit design. This third edition now builds on the excellent foundations of the first two editions. It seems to have a lot more between the covers - it is full of descriptions of circuits, components and the like along with tables, information, useful formulas (not long winded proofs that nobody reads) and plenty of guidelines and practical help that have been obviously gained from years of real hands-on experience.
The third edition of The Art of Electronics includes 90 oscilloscope screenshots illustrating the behaviour of working circuits, dozens of graphs giving highly useful measured data of the sort that is often buried or omitted in datasheets but which you need when designing circuits, and 80 tables (listing some 1650 active components), enabling intelligent choice of circuit components by listing essential characteristics (both specified and measured) of available parts.
The book addresses everything from the basics of electronics through to the more difficult topics that real life design engineers have to address.
Chapters in 'The Art of Electronics' include:
Field Effect Transistors
Oscillators and timers
Low noise techniques
Voltage regulation and power conversion
Programmable logic devices
Digital meets analog
Computers controllers and data links
