The Maplin Electronic Circuits Handbook, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the design, testing, and construction of electronic circuits. This book aims to provide a unique collection of practical working circuits together with supporting information.

Organized into 11 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the common types of passive component for use in the circuits. This text then provides an introduction to a variety of the most commonly used semiconductor devices. Other chapters consider the correct operation of the power supply, which is crucial to most electronic circuits. This book discusses as well the amplifiers that may be categorized under a number of general headings, including such characteristics as class of operation, frequency response, and the type of circuitry employed. The final chapter outlines the constructional details of five of the most well-known Maplin projects.

This book is a valuable resource for engineers, equipment designers, and electronics enthusiasts.
