A comprehensive primer from the editors of Microwaves & RF

Microwaves & RF editors Lou Frenzel and Chris DeMartino have created the ultimate guide to test and measurement. This is one to keep in the reference library.

This book targets engineers, technicians, scientists, and other technical professionals who have a need to understand basic electronic test and measurement processes. The book is a primer on DC and low frequency (<10 MHz) equipment and measurements. It covers basic voltage, current and power measurements as well as more advanced AC and digital test techniques. The book assumes some previous knowledge and experience with common test instruments but otherwise is a good first introduction to or refresher on the subject for those who need it.
