ARRL Introduces Understanding Basic Electronics, second edition

03/17/2010

ARRL's Understanding Basic Electronics, second edition -- your gateway into the exciting world of electricity and electronics -- is written in a friendly, easy-to-understand style that beginners and nontechnical readers will enjoy. This introductory guide is ideal for students with basic math skills, as well as radio amateurs and experimenters interested in gaining a more complete understanding of basic electronic principles -- anyone eager to unlock the mysteries of electronic circuits.

Authored by Walter Banzhaf, WB1ANE, this new edition features student-friendly math made easy -- an inexpensive calculator is all you need -- and now includes digital electronics. Even if you already have a foundation in basic electronics, you will enjoy the small module format of each chapter, allowing readers to digest "bite-sized" chunks of learning material. Real-world examples and clear illustrations make the study of electronics interesting and fun! A handful of small "kitchen table" projects are included to help bring abstract concepts to life.

Understanding Basic Electronics, second edition includes chapters on electronics, analog and digital electronic circuits, electrical terms, conductors, insulators and resistors, electricity and magnetism, capacitors and inductors, electrical circuits (both series and parallel), Ohm's law, techniques and tricks on how to solve circuit problems, energy and power, alternating current (ac), capacitors and inductors, transformers, impedance, resonant active device concepts, semiconductors, diodes, transistors and ICs -- and much more.

For a limited time, ARRL members can purchase Understanding Basic Electronics, second edition for only $29.95 -- that's $3 off the regular price of $32.95!
