Electrical engineering is an extremely broad discipline, and there are many interleaving fields which can be studied to different relative depths.
Below are the fields represented by the books in this subject.
- This book begins with the basics - the electron. From there it builds up to quantum physics and explains why electronic components, and especially semiconductors, work on the most fundamental level.
- Semiconductors is the layer above Materials in Electronics: leading from a slab of silicon through to the vast range of devices available today, from the BJT to the MOSFET.
- The classical physics behind electronics: resistance, capacitance, inductance, moving onwards and upwards. This book deals with the plain physics behind such devices, not what you can do with them.
- The fundamentals of electrical physics, from Ohm's Law and ideal components to more advanced techniuques such as nodal analysis and network parameters. This book briefly derives the techniques that underpin the understanding of all electronics.
- A revolutionary new approach to electrical engineering - Circuit Idea guides you through electrical engineering by intuition and deep understanding, rather than by formulae and rote.
- This book deals with the electronics associated with continuously variable signals. Mostly concerned with the operation of transistors, op-amps, and other active components, this book picks up where Semiconductors left off, weaving the myriad of devices into a useful circuit.
- This book introduces the concept of digital electronics as opposed to Analogue Electronics. From basic logic gates to fast multipliers, Digital Circuits has the theory behind them, but doesn't overly concern itself over the physical devices doing the work.
- This book concerns itself with the cross-over involved with implementing digital circuits in an analogue universe. Manufacturing and layout are both considered.
- Techniques, circuits and theory for converting real-world analogue signals to machine-readable digital form and back again.
- Starting form the mathematical end of the spectrum, rather than the physical, this book looks at what makes a signal and what we can do with it in the real world.
- Following on from Signals and Systems, this book shows how to manipulate signals to do our bidding! Filtering, compression, Fourier transforms and the kind are the name of the game.
- Using computers and embedded systems, we see how to implement the techniques discussed in Signal Processing in a timely and elegant fashion.
- Getting data from A to B efficiently and in one piece. Basic radio theory such as modulation right up to frequency-hopping spread-spectrum signals and error-correcting codes.
- For the hobbyist who doesn't want to get bogged down in the hows and wherefores of the electronics. This book explains how basic and not-so-basic components can be used to produce useful and interesting circuits, from burglar alarms and electronic locks to egg timers and battery chargers. Where the going could get scientific, you will be referred to the relevant book to learn more if you want.
