About Darren Ashby
EE turned Director, jack of all trades master of none, and with the help of spell checking, now an author. Motors, power and speed are my addiction, electronics and gadgets are my fascination. I hope to one day extend my writing to the scifi genre as that is my favorite read. Right now I'm comptemplating a super hero graphic novel about a girl with Quantum physics based powers, I think I'll call her QuantEm. Any artists out there want to collaborate?
Occationally I tweet really profound stuff under the call sign of sparkyguru, and if you want to contact me for complaints, praise or general ruminations I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org

Electrical Engineering 101 covers the basic theory and practice of electronics, starting by answering the question "What is electricity?" It goes on to explain the fundamental principles and components, relating them constantly to real-world examples. Sections on tools and troubleshooting give engineers deeper understanding and the know-how to create and maintain their own electronic design projects. Unlike other books that simply describe electronics and provide step-by-step build instructions, EE101 delves into how and why electricity and electronics work, giving the reader the tools to take their electronics education to the next level. It is written in a down-to-earth style and explains jargon, technical terms and schematics as they arise. The author builds a genuine understanding of the fundamentals and shows how they can be applied to a range of engineering problems.
This third edition includes more real-world examples and a glossary of formulae. It contains new coverage of:
- Classes of components
- Memory (RAM, ROM, etc.)
- Surface mount
- High speed design
- Board layout
- Advanced digital electronics (e.g. processors)
- Transistor circuits and circuit design
- Op-amp and logic circuits
- Use of test equipment
- Gives readers a simple explanation of complex concepts, in terms they can understand and relate to everyday life.
- Updated content throughout and new material on the latest technological advances.
- Provides readers with an invaluable set of tools and references that they can use in their everyday work.
