The on-line textbook here at All About Circuits is the main reason many people visit this website. What other websites have you come across on the web that provide free access to information and resources for electrical engineering and electronics?

A couple that I have come across in my time inlcude:

On-line textbook for Digital Signal Processing written by Steven Smith

Free introductory textbook for Physics - particularly useful for Electromagnetics theory

Share the sites that you have found useful.

Hi Dave,

I ran across this site some time ago:http://www.du.edu/~etuttle/electron/elecindx.htm.

It has some good explanations of devices plus example circuits that can be useful for experimentation.

beenthere
There is some detail on that site! Its interesting to see he recommends to standard texts that I stand by:

Art of Electronic by Horowitz and Hill

And

Microelectronic Circuits by Sedra and Smith

Another site I found very useful, particularly if you have the associated textbook (which incidently is quite expensive), but still there is plenty of good information for VLSI circuits and digital system design:

CMOS VLSI Design

Hi,

This site has a lot of information about ic's - the history and methodology of fabrication. Plus links to similar sites - http://www.icknowledge.com/index.html
Hi beenthere,

Ive merged this thread in with the useful websites thread so that we can keep it all in one place. Apologies of you would like to set this as a stand alone topic - if so, let me know and I'll un-merge it.

To add to this growing list, here is a page dedicated to many free e-books for download:

Free e-books at e-dsp

The list is subdivided into several topic areas including:

DSP
Electronics and RF
Electronic Programming
Programming (computer related)
Maths

I personally am very interested in looking at the Fundamentals of Image Processing e-book to see how relevant it is to modern image processing.

If you are thinking of starting with FPGA but have no idea what to do or where to get the information, this site offers quite a lot of materials, such as FPGA chips information, information on free development softwares, how to use some of them, HDL, cheap development boards, tutorials, simple projects and many many more...

Since this thread is a useful general resource I have stuck this topic to the top of the Electronic Resources forum.

Suggestion of sites in this thread must adhere to the criterion outlined in the opening post: websites that provide free access to information and resources for electrical engineering and electronics.

Hi all,

In this fast paced world this internet is undoubtedly a boon to the mankind. we share lots of info and this google search engine i feel that its the best of its kind. Once again i say that iam no way related to google other than being a potential user of it. Its really fantastic. Those key words which i used few months back, if i use it the same once again the results are really great . I donno the algorithm upon which it is built. But I admire those great minds which had built it. I hope we are in the transition stage and stepping into the Robotic ERA..I am sure that you all will feel the same thing if you go thru the following link. These are the man made robots by Honda. After seeing these just think of what actually you are doing in your project / work. I do say that your work is equally important. but think about their objectives their results. You'll be inspired by the work of the minds. We sometimes totally depend on others to complete the projects and that too to solve linear problems. But real world problems are nonlinear to the core and highly non periodic. and i suggest to give a human-like approach to solve the nonlinear problems. Its the Only key and there is no way out. If you need a problem then have this sample of it, your objective is to recognize a face. Irresepective of the makeup and the facials how a human mind recognizes a face with a lightining speed. Forget about the computing power you have.As the moores law is prooving " The computing power gets doubled every 2 years", its quite easy to predict that we'll be having our destop pcs with power of few 100 Ghz by 2020.

I have the habit of saving those links related to technical and sometimes i feel that i'd mined the internet enough to get wealthy information. AS the saying goes "KNOWLEDGE IS POWER AND INFORMATION IS WEALTH ". I tried to posess the links by not sharing with anyone until i really felt that those who maintain their websites posting hardware circuits schematics, softwares, codes, entire materials to build a project are really doing a great job. And I stand nowhere on that line. But its undoubtedly true that they are marketing the products posted on their site. but still their attitude is really good. The strategy goes this way as long as you know how to build a circuit with 8051 you wont be buying an Ic. So if the Mfr provides you with all the codes, it becomes mutually benificial.

So following this you'll be getting info regarding some very good links.
"Teaching one to fish, is better than giving him few fishes". There is one called sunrom technologies. i appreciate their marketing strategy . They literally give the entire source code of the project free of cost alternatively its available in their website. You can find your harware, software pcb layout files ..etc. They are uploaded in the website and you can use it.

One more thing What i feel regarding ebooks is that the publisher can very well distribute the e-book free of cost. If the e-book is around some 600-700 pages how many of us will find it comfortable to read the entire book ?. may be 2 in 100 or even less.
I request the administrator not to move this topic to OFF topic lounge or similar thing as, though it doen't contain technical data it has the links that contain humongous technical data. and i will be adding it soon.

http://electrosofts.com - This site is really good for 8051 or any Microcontroller users.

So start digging...

It's the first time i have visited this website for learning Electronics.I'm interested in FPGAs very much but it seems to be one of the most difficult issue in a large area like Electronics.

Some of my friends has a kit from Xilinx to embedding our text-based projects into FPGAs.

I use website of two giants : Altera and Xilinx to learn FPGAs designing.

can anyone provide me links for electronics problems mainly related to analog?
objective question will be of great help.

some of the links i have searched for digital are :
http://www.asic-world.com/digital/questions.html
http://www.geocities.com/hw_eng_faq/faq.htm

now i m in need of analog.
Check the Socratic Electronics Project.

It is hoped that in the coming months that the Socratic Electronics Project will be integrated into AAC along side the E-book.
