### Summary

### Summary

Newnes Electronics Engineer's Pocket Book is a unique reference source - concise but comprehensive, and designed to be an essential tool for a wide range of engineers and electronics enthusiasts. This is a book written to be used, not to gather dust on a shelf, so unlike most reference books it is designed for the workshop and lab.

This compendium includes: component data, IC pin-outs, tables, formulae, principles of circuit design, circuit diagrams and a substantial glossary of terms. The second edition includes expanded material on circuit design covering amplifiers, bridge circuits, filters and lasers.

The editor of the second edition is the late Joe Carr, who was a leading US electronics author who had written numerous published books and magazine articles, including several titles with Newnes.

This book was originally compiled by the leading electronics author Keith Brindley, incorporating the previous Newnes Pocket Books, Newnes Radio and Electronics Pocket Book and Newnes Electronics Pocket Book.

Core title in Pocket Book series.

Updated by leading US electronics author, Joe Carr.

Covers European and US practice.
