An elementary guide to reliability by G. W. A Dummer( Book )

35 editions published between 1968 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text has now been completely revised and updated, making it an ideal introductory course in reliability for a wide range of engineering qualifications, including City & Guilds 8030 and HNC/Ds. A new chapter focuses on the role of the microprocessor and microcomputer controller, and the use of algorithms for monitoring system performance. The addition of numerous problems, self-check questions and exam-style questions makes this an extremely useful book for courses with an element of independent study. G W A Dummer was born in 1909, and his career included pioneering work in the field of radar. Working on radar reliability in the early fifties, he became the first person in the world to propose and pioneer the integrated circuit. In recognition of his distinguished career, he has received the USA Medal of Freedom and the MBE. Mike Tooley is Director of Curriculum and quality at Brooklands College, Surrey and a well-known author of textbooks in microelectronics and engineering. He currently teaches reliability. R C Winton, MBE, worked for Mullard for 40 years, and played an important role on may committees such as the CBI Education and Training Committee. He was also a key figure at the IEEE, becoming Secretary of the UK and Republic of Ireland section. A basic text in reliability ideal for a wide range of engineering courses A classic brought fully up to date for today's students New self-check questions make this book suitable for independent study

Newnes Dictionary of electronics by S. W Amos( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Newnes Dictionary of Electronics has become an essential item on the bookshelves of electronics engineers, managers, technicians, students and enthusiasts. The definitions are clear and concise, supported by numerous illustrations and circuit diagrams, and the book itself is compact and durable - ideal for the lab." "Modern electronics is beset with acronyms and abbreviations, and these are often a foreign language, not only to the layman, but to anyone who is not a specialist in the particular subject. For this reason the fourth edition of Newnes Dictionary of Electronics includes a substantial new section devoted to these terms."--Jacket

Electronic components, tubes and transistors by G. W. A Dummer( Book )

12 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electronic Components, Tubes and Transistors aims to bridge the gap between the basic measurement theory of resistance, capacitance, and inductance and the practical application of electronic components in equipments. The more practical or usage aspect of electron tubes and semiconductors is given emphasis over theory. The essential characteristics of each main type of component, tube, and transistor are summarized. This book is comprised of six chapters and begins with a discussion on the essential characteristics in terms of the parameters usually required in choosing a resistor, including s
