Revue de presse

'Ideal for students who are just about to begin a course that involves electronics, for people who are interested in the subject but do not know where to start, or for those who need a straightforward revision of the basics.' Electrotechnology

Présentation de l'éditeur

Electronics Simplified, Third Edition, discusses the aims and methods of electronics, with emphasis on digital electronics and software options. It covers the latest developments in electronics, including Blu-ray, digital TV and radio, HD and 3D TV, robotic systems, radar, cellular phones, GPS, and microcomputers.

Organized into 17 chapters, the book introduces the reader to every aspect of electronics from fundamentals to applications, with minimal mathematics required. It provides an overview of electricity, waves, and pulses and how a steady voltage is generated, along with power, alternating voltage, and AC and DC transmission. The information on microcomputers has been greatly expanded, while information on analog fundamentals has been retained. It also discusses passive components such as transformers, resistors and capacitors, inductors, transformers, resonance, and diodes; active components and integrated circuits, particularly what a transistor is and what it does; how traditional radio works; elements of television, including color television; digital television and radio broadcasting; and digital signals and digital recording. Finally, the principles of CD recording are explained, along with the basics of microprocessors, calculators, computers, and computer peripherals.
This book is essential reading for hobbyists, technicians, professionals, and students. It is suitable for anyone taking a qualification course in electronics, or for those who want to know more about the digital revolution.

  • Explains electronics from fundamentals to applications - No other book has such breadth of coverage
  • Approachable, clear writing style, with minimal math - No previous knowledge of electronics required!
  • Now fully revised and updated to include coverage of the latest developments in electronics: Blu-ray, HD, 3-D TV, digital TV and radio, miniature computers, robotic systems and more.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Electronics Obfuscated 8 mai 2008
Par C. Hutchins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is riddled with factual errors, contains irritating ideological bias and is poorly written.

The author gets things wrong, like what the voltage is for AC electricity in the US. And then goes on, in the same chapter, to get wrong the range of human hearing and the range of frequencies used human speech. Not only is it wrong, but it's a digression within a digression within a digression. Why is he talking about this anyway?

Some pages in the first few chapters are more than half fulled with useless NBs.

One particularly useless page starts meandering around different methods of industrial power generation. The writer then turns even farther afield to mock solar power and call opponents of nuclear power "hysterical" and goes on, in an NB, suggesting that deluded anti-nuke crusaders should protest the sun because it's also nuclear.

Um, right. Then he diverts 90 degrees in another pointless direction.

So the book is insulting me and I'm not learning anything, but given how sloppy the author is with numbers, this is probably a plus, since anything I did learn would probably be incorrect.

However, there might be good uses for this book. If you know somebody that will probably electrocute themselves if they start messing around with electricity, this book would be a great way to discourage them. Similarly, this is a good gift for somebody that you hate. Basically, if you have any wish to see somebody remain ignorant and become discouraged, this is the best book you can get.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be called Electronics History. 30 novembre 2011
Par Kimba W. Lion - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This book first appeared in the UK (and that's important to know) back in 1997. This is supposed to be a 2011 updated edition, but it's not very updated. Do you want to know about CRTs, J-K flip-flops, and PAL television standards? You're in business. Do you want to know about HD Radio, or ATSC (the current US digital TV standard)? Forget about it.

I swear some of the diagrams look like they came from the 1940s. For computer design there's a "block diagram for an 8-bit computer, typical of types produced in the mid-1980s". That's a quote. But, we're told, it's good enough.

The book is very UK-oriented, so there's a lot about the broadcast systems they use there, but not a whole lot about what we use in the US.

And there are plenty of places where opinion passes as fact. Actually, the more I look at this book, the more it seems that opinion is far more common than fact.

I can't recommend this book to anyone, unless you're in the UK, and you just suddenly developed an interest in antique electronics.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Read Any Good Instruction Manuals Lately? 11 septembre 2012
Par Timothy Walker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
You are a newly-hired employee at a TV repair shop in a dying strip mall. Your boss is a very bright and highly opinionated British expat. When not railing against hippies "imagining that crystals had psychic powers" and the government ("nations that do not nurture their mathematicians... are doomed to be second rate"), he teaches you about electronics in disjointed snippets, fragments, and rambling asides.

Such is this book... and, yes, those are actual quotes from the text.

Electronics Simplified promises a breadth of coverage and it delivers. What it lacks is depth. The reader is whisked from the concepts of electricity to circuit diagrams in just eighty pages. Next we race past radio and obsolete TV technologies to arrive at a high-level overview of digital signals and logic. We finish with what seems to me to be a perfunctory coverage of computing technology, at the level of "Windows CE is an operating system". All in all, I found the book occasionally enjoyable but not particularly useful.

Bottom line: the book you are actually looking for is Electronics Projects For Dummies. With breadboards and a multimeter you will learn by doing and, ultimately, have something to show for it.

Disclaimer: I am reviewing a copy I received for free through the Vine program.

Well I wouldn't use this as a primary text or source for learning. As some other reviewers have pointed out, there is some good coverage of history but not so much in terms of learning material to cover the actual basics of electronic circuits etc.

and the coverage of digital electronics is spotty.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An enjoyable, hard-nosed introduction to electronics theory 7 novembre 2011
Par Brian Connors - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
One of the reasons I've been contributing to RationalWiki and TVTropes for several years now is that they take accuracy seriously, but also don't feel bound to be overly serious like Wikipedia usually is. Ian Sinclair drops snark bombs against bad science every five pages or so for the first couple of chapters while providing a generally workable background on the very wide field of electronics, building from the very basic to the complex in a manner very much like Code, Charles Petzold's epic layer-upon-layer explanation of computing. This makes this book one of the most refreshing introductions to any subject I've ever seen, and I think that's an important aspect of this book because it keeps the reader on-mission in a rather entertaining fashion. (I have a funny feeling that Sinclair and Forrest Mims would not get along well at all.)

Be careful though -- this book is mostly theoretical, with little to no practical exercises in it. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it's an indication that you really do need some kind of practical instruction (and a beginner electronics kit -- try SparkFun) to work through while you're studying Sinclair's theoretical material. Another curious thing about this book: Newnes is a British imprint of the multinational Elsevier, and the book definitely shows it. Although Sinclair doesn't exclude the rest of the Anglophone world (he's pretty careful to split the difference on really divergent vocabulary such as valve vs. vacuum tube), he quite definitely approaches it from the history of electronics in the United Kingdom, so certain dates seem mushy or off and the cultural references sometimes require a bit of Googling to understand.

On the whole, I like this book. Like I said, it doesn't replace a workbook, breadboard and a box of parts, but it's definitely helpful for getting an idea of which way you want to go with your studies. Just remember you might have to do a bit of translating between British and American to use it effectively.
