Open Books & Lab Manuals
- A Brief Introduction to Engineering Computation with MATLAB (British Columbia Inst. of Technology)
“Specifically designed for students with no programming experience. However, students are expected to be proficient in First Year Mathematics and Sciences and access to good reference books are highly recommended. Students are assumed to have a working knowledge of the Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows operating systems. The strategic goal of the course and book is to provide learners with an appreciation for the role computation plays in solving engineering problems. MATLAB specific skills that students are expected to be proficient at are: write scripts to solve engineering problems including interpolation, numerical integration and regression analysis, plot graphs to visualize, analyze and present numerical data, and publish reports.” – BCCampus
- Semiconductor Devices: Theory & Application + Lab manual (SUNY)
By James Fiore. “This text covers the theory and application of discrete semiconductor devices including various types of diodes, bipolar junction transistors, JFETs, MOSFETs and IGBTs. It is appropriate for Associate and Bachelors degree programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering and similar areas of study. Applications include rectifying, clipping, clamping, switching, small signal amplifiers and followers, and class A, B and D power amplifiers. A companion laboratory manual is available.
- Operational Amplifiers & Linear Integrated Circuits + Lab Manual (SUNY)
By James Fiore. “This text covers the theory and application of operational amplifiers and other linear integrated circuits. It is appropriate for Associate and Bachelors degrees programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering and similar areas of study. Topics include negative feedback, comparators, voltage amplifiers, summing and differencing amplifiers, high speed and high power devices, non-linear circuit applications, regulators, oscillators, integrators and differentiators, active filters and AD/DA conversion. A companion laboratory manual is available.
- Embedded Controllers using C and Arduino + Lab Manual (SUNY)
By James Fiore. “This text introduces embedded controller systems using the inexpensive and widely available Arduino hardware platform and the C programming language. It is intended for students in Electrical Engineering and Electrical Engineering Technology programs at the Associate and Baccalaureate levels. Unlike many Arduino texts, this text does not rely solely on the Arduino libraries. Rather, it “gets under the hood” and directly accesses I/O ports, pins and DDR, as would be expected in a traditional college level microprocessor/microcontroller course.
- Electromagnetics (Open Electromagnetics Project, Virginia Tech)
“Electromagnetics, volume 2 by Steven W. Ellingson is a 216-page peer-reviewed open textbook designed especially for electrical engineering students in the third year of a bachelor of science degree program. It is intended to follow Electromagnetics, volume 1 as the primary textbook for the second semester of a two-semester undergraduate engineering electromagnetics sequence.”
