About the Authors
  • Written and compiled as an advanced companion to the bestselling third edition of The Art of Electronics, the X-Chapters expands upon topics introduced in the main volume. In addition to covering more advanced material relevant to The Art of Electronics, the X-Chapters also includes extensive coverage of many topics in electronics which are particularly novel, important, or just exotic and intriguing. Topics discussed include specialized tables, such as high-speed VFB and CFB op-amps, fast LED pulsers and transient voltage protection and transient thermal response, among many others. Originally intended to be an integrated component of the third edition of The Art of Electronics, the X-Chapters are its missing pieces. This enticing spread of electronics wisdom and expertise will be an invaluable addition to the library of any student, researcher, or practitioner with even a passing interest in the design and analysis of electronic circuits.

    • An important addition to the Art of Electronics literature, this book provides the space to explore key topics in detail, in a way that wasn't possible in the main volume.
    • Covers topics ranging from specialized tables, such as high-speed VFB and CFB op-amps to JFETs, fast LED pulsers and Transient voltage protection.
    • Can be used separately as an advanced standalone book or as an addition to the main volume.

    Paul Horowitz, Harvard University, Massachusetts
    Paul Horowitz is Professor of Physics at Harvard University, where he originated the Laboratory Electronics course in 1974 from which emerged The Art of Electronics. He was one of the pioneers of the search of intelligent life beyond the Earth, and one of the leaders behind SETI. Other research interests include observational astrophysics, x-ray and particle microscopy, and optical interferometry. He is the author of some 200 scientific articles and reports, has consulted widely for industry and government, and is the designer of numerous electronic and photographic instruments.

    Winfield Hill, Rowland Institute at Harvard
    Winfield Hill is by inclination an electronics circuit-design guru. He has held positions at numerous organisations, including Harvard University's Electronic Design Center and Sea Data Corporation. Currently he is the Director of Electronics Engineering at the Rowland Institute for Science where he has designed some 250 electronic instruments. Recent interests include high-voltage RF (to 15kV) and precision high-current electronics (to 6000A).
