In Electrical Engineering 101: Everything You Should Have Learned in School But Probably Didn't, author Darren Ashby fills the gap between theory and practice. An expert electronics engineer who enjoys teaching the practical side of engineering, Ashby covers all the subjects that a beginning electrical engineer needs to know:
- Intuitive circuit and signal analysis
- Physical equivalents of electrical components
- Proper use of an oscilloscope
- Troubleshooting both digital and analog circuits
This book is suitable for engineering students and beginning engineers; experienced engineers needing a "refresher course"; and engineers from other disciplines needing a practical introduction to electrical engineering principles.
Softcover, 352 pages, CD-ROM included
- Unit Math
- Physical Equivalents of Electrical Components
- Intuitive Signal Analysis
- Building Blocks
- Ohm's Law
- Microprocessor Basics
- Motors and Controls
- Basic EMI
