This site was built with the intent of sharing electrical engineering projects and related engineering topics.
The site covers researching, designing, modeling, testing, and then manufacturing of various electronic projects of interest.
As I studied electronics I thought it would be nice to share the knowledge and outcomes. Plus, a few friends wanted to see videos and specs.
And, I believe that anyone can get a free education, today, with all the universities publishing their
coursework and with very smart people publishing their works.
I wanted to be a part of that movement. Feel free to use any part of this site to further your learning.
These are all great references books. Over the years, these have become my "go to" books for circuit design and troubleshooting.
