Electronic books for beginners

Electronic Books

A wonderful variety of electronic books.  Those who have a very basic knowledge of electronic components. These books are very useful. You can understand the basic structure of the electronic components. These are helpful for theory and practical purposes.

Encyclopedia of Electronic Components

Volume 1
Writer - Charles Platt
Amazon Kindle app books Edition

Electronics Books

Electronic Books of basic components

This book deals with the basic concepts of electronic components. We divide it into three major categories.
1- Power
2- Electromagnetism
3 -Discrete Semiconductor

The book starts with the battery that is an electrochemical power source. But a battery cell is also a power source for an electronic component. It describes the construction details, working principles, and usage of electronic components.

The most important components used in many Arduino based electronic projects. Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors used in almost every circuit. Such parts are explained in the book well.

Description of Transformers (AC to AC) Power Supply (AC to DC) Converters (DC to DC) Inverter (DC to AC) that are useful for the required source of supply.
Switches, Relays, these parts explained briefly in the book. These parts play a major role in any circuit.

The second category of the book is about motors, e.g. AC-DC motors, servomotors, and Stepper motor.

The third category is about the discrete semiconductor. Encoders, Diodes, and Transistors who single junction or multi-junction?

Encyclopedia of electronics is a reliable source if you are starting projects with electronic components, e.g. sensors, modules. The first Volume covers power, electromagnetism, and discrete semiconductors.

Volume 2 includes incorporated circuits, and light and sound sources; Volume 3 covers a variety of sensing devices.

Getting Started in Electronics

Third Edition,
Writer - Forrest M Mims III
128 Pages

Electronics Books

This book starts with the basic concept, from electricity to electronics. It deals with basic tools and items used to start a mini-project.

In this book, the semiconductor type materials and components described. The book is about semiconductor components and photonic semiconductor components.

It provides logic and symbols of logic gates, integrated circuits. Either digital integrated circuits or linear integrated circuits(operational amplifiers, function generators.

The book is not only about electronic circuits. Although it is a combination of AC power based electronic circuits. 
This book includes 100 basic electronic circuits for beginners.

The Art of electronics

Third Edition,
Writer - Paul Horowitz & Winfield Hill
Chapters: 15 sections.

Electronics Books

This beginner's guide is not only for electronic projects, we use it as a reference book. The book is about the basic foundation of electronic components.
It describes active, passive filters (LC, RF).

Introduce oscillators and timers by using chip 555. A good tutorial on voltage regulation and power conversion circuits. It is explained by 723 and 317 regulator chips. We also use the art of electronics as a textbook to design electronic projects and circuits.

The middle of the book describes digital logic concepts and logic gates. The knowledge of flip-flops, Programmable logic devices, e.g. micro-controllers, interface, software.

It covers PWM digital-to-analog converters. In the last, it is about micro-controllers, computers, and data links. It is a basic electronics book and also a practical electronics book for inventors. It is useful to study and understand electronics at a very basic level.

Electronics Books

The book keeps valuable information on integrated chips, Transistors, Diodes, Heat & sound emitters. It explains a brief description of signal processing

It explains the component function with their Datasheet. Diagrams of components are very effective to learn quickly. 

The 2nd edition covers a variety of indicators, displays, and light sources, e.g. LEDs, Seven segment displays, LCDs modules, dot matrix displays, and amplification circuits.

Types of LCD e.g. reflective LCD/ Transreflective LCD, Active matrix /Passive matrix LCDs. monochrome LCDs/Full-color LCDs. LCD driving chip 4543B decoder.

Types of Light source from lamp/bulb or panel indicators etc, incandescent lamps/ neon bulbs/ Fluorescent lamps. Precise info about illuminance and intensity. The book Defines and segregates LEDs as per wavelength e.g. Infrared, Ultraviolet.

Working principle and function of LASER light. how it works and how it made and what is inside.

Last, about audio indicators/ different transducers, etc, Speakers/headphone types as per frequency range.

The book is not only giving knowledge about the usage of electronic components. Also explains the working principle, including internal diagrams.

Practical Electronics for Inventors

Fourth Edition,
Writer - Paul Scherz & Simon Monk
17 chapters, 1056 Pages
Amazon Kindle books Edition

Electronic books

Practical electronics for inventors start from electronic components symbols and color codes of electronic components. If you study electronics with very basic knowledge, it could be useful.

You can learn about voltage, current, resistance, inductance effects in the circuit.  The book provides electronic Laws and theorems used for circuit analysis.

Discrete active circuits and passive circuit components. A great book of electronic circuit analysis. Basic passive circuits and discrete circuits and integrated circuits.

How to share common ground with electronic equipment. Usage and deep Analysis of LCR (inductor, capacitance, resistance) circuits. SPICE Simulator for better understanding of nodal analysis.

Semiconductor material and components in serial and parallel circuits. The working principle of sensors, where and how used, and the category of electronic sensors.

Various kinds of chemical sensors, e.g. gas, smoke, humidity, etc. Measurement and analysis with the help of an oscilloscope. How to operate an oscilloscope to measure signals.

Learn the key feature of the electronic laboratory test equipment, oscilloscopes, Probe, multimeters, DC Power supplies, Frequency counters. Operation amplification detail and application in electronic components.


Electronic books can be effective if you have electronic kits and start assembling them. Because practice made man perfect, just start the experiment and learn through your mistakes.
