Hi,

I was searching for information on Gould 500MHz active scope probes and stumbled upon a site where the author of an Analogue design technical book has released it into the public domain in PDF format.

This book on Analogue circuit design may be of interest to others so I am including the links below:

http://www.thetan.plus.com/seekrets/index.html

http://www.thetan.plus.com/seekrets/seekPDF.pdf

It would appear that sales of the >500 page book failed due to lack of money on the part of the target audience (Students) Sad times indeed.

From a brief look it appears very informative and interesting.

Thanks Aurora, for a very good find.
 
I've downloaded the book and read a couple of chapters, I am impressed by mix of theory and practical advice.
Certainly a keeper for me.

If something is free, then it's always worth a look.

If I were the author, I'd work on the title a bit.

Damn .. this is good one, thanks for sharing this !

I did a random jump and bumped into CH16: Measurement Techniques at p.293, after reading only this paragraph, decided this one is definitely a keeper and worth a place in my tablet.

Excellent stuff! Anyone who learns best by example will like his style. Don't forget to download the example answers.  Definitely warrants sending a donation IMO,

I wish I could print it, but printing 250 on both sides and binding it is going to cost a lot. Ah well, I guess I can't complain, this book looks great.

Hey, Simon or Dave, why don't you make this a sticky on both the General Chat and the Beginners categories?

Update: I'm starting to like this book. It introduces you to practical design from page 1. In fact, on page 12 the author starts to introduce you to the actual industry terms I mainly learned from watching the EEVBlog.

I can put it on my FTP server - I have asked Leslie Green for permission. I have plenty of bandwidth on my servers.

Can someone check this link to see if it is also dead for them.

I have tried on a few computers and get the 404 response. If someone has been successful and has downloaded it, could they please post a link to their copy.

Appreciate it

Thanks IC

The link is dead because the web host exceeded the download limit. I'd say watch this thread for further news as it develops...

I think Mr. Green deserves a better site for his book. Something that can sustain itself with ad revenue. Even a sponsorship message on the inner cover perhaps?

Probably a naughty thing to do, hosting the PDF outside the author's site, but here is a temp link for now:

Have you checked the license? Does it give you permission to distribute it? Have you read the recent discussion here about people reuploading photo inciduction videos?

It makes no difference what any one of us thinks on the matter because THE AUTHOR has clearly stated his position.
