Newnes Electronics Toolkit brings together fundamental facts, concepts, and applications of electronic components and circuits, and presents them in a clear, concise, and unambiguous format, to provide a reference book for engineers. The book contains 10 chapters that discuss the following concepts: resistors, capacitors, inductors, semiconductors, circuit concepts, electromagnetic compatibility, sound, light, heat, and connections. The engineer's job does not end when the circuit diagram is completed; the design for the manufacturing process is just as important if volume production is to be undertaken. The task of component selection and second or even third sourcing of alternative components is an essential part of the design process. This book attempts to assist the engineer with the component sourcing process by the inclusion of tables which present the electrical and mechanical parameters of electronic components which have evolved to be "industry standard" devices. The tables are in a format where the parameters of components from different manufacturers may be compared easily and a decision made as to their suitability for the engineer's circuit.
