 # Electronics Textbooks

## Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I

### by Don Johnson |7 Chapters This textbook takes a look at the various aspects of electrical engineering through the lens of how things work together as a system. Topics include: signals and systems, analog signal processing, frequency domain topics, digital signal processing, and information communication.

## Electromagnetics I

### by Steven W. Ellingson |10 Chapters This book is intended to serve as a primary textbook for a one-semester introductory course in undergraduate engineering electromagnetics, including the following topics: electric and magnetic fields; electromagnetic properties of materials; electromagnetic waves; and devices that operate according to associated electromagnetic principles including resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, generators, and transmission lines. This book employs the “transmission lines first” approach, in which transmission lines are introduced using a lumped-element equivalent circuit model for a differential length of transmission line, leading to one-dimensional wave equations for voltage and current. This is sufficient to address transmission line concepts, including characteristic impedance, input impedance of terminated transmission lines, and impedance matching techniques. Attention then turns to electrostatics, magnetostatics, time-varying fields, and waves, in that order.

## Introduction to Electricity, Magnetism, and Circuits

### by Daryl Janzen |14 Chapters This textbook emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigour inherent in the subject. Frequent, strong examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and generalize the result.

## Lessons in Electric Circuits: Volume I - DC

### by Tony R. Kuphaldt |19 Chapters This textbook on DC Circuits covers much of the same topics as we have in our Circuits 101 tutorial series and reviewing both this textbook and the Circuits 101 tutorials will provide two different methods of teaching and it is highly recommended to use both as resources. In DC circuits, we learn about voltage, current, and resistance before learning how to solve basic circuits. Tony also covers electrical safety, basic scientific notation, and power systems and then covers a few physics concepts used in circuits.

## Lessons in Electric Circuits: Volume II - AC

### by Tony R. Kuphaldt |17 Chapters AC, or alternating current, adds a new level of complexity to electric circuits. In this textbook, Tony R. Kuphaldt introduces the fundamentals of AC theory and reviews complex numbers before diving headfirst into reactance and impedance of inductors and capacitors. With the knowledge of how these components work with AC signals, he opens up a world of practical possibilities by showing how these concepts can create powerful filters, motors, transmission lines, and more.

## Lessons in Electric Circuits: Volume III - Semiconductors

### by Tony R. Kuphaldt |16 Chapters In volume III of Tony R. Kuphaldt's open-source electric circuits textbook, we learn about all things semiconductor related. This not only includes learning about how semiconductor devices work at a circuit level but how they function at a physics and quantum mechanics level. This in-depth experience will clarify the basics of how all modern electronics work.
