Overview

Electrical Engineering Uncovered gives the reader an introduction to electrical engineering and a sense of what professional engineers do. The book uses familiar examples, like water flowing through a garden hose, to illustrate the electronics discussed and ease the reader into the subject. KEY TOPICS: Topics include up-to-date Internet information; new material on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS); digital electronics; computer architecture; communications; and digital signal processing. Short, one-page templates are included for the different kinds of technical writing an engineer would typically produce. MARKET: As a reference for electrical engineers.
