Bookmarks for Electronics Designers

Electrical design engineer Lazar Rozenblat was once told in college that "an engineer does not have to remember everything, but should know where to find the information he/she needs." Following that advice, Rozenblat has put together this "one-stop informational resource on Power Electronics /SMPS design." The website provides links to engineering reference information and design resources and is...
Datasheet Locator

With so many electronic components on the market today, it is often difficult to find datasheets with specifications and properties for a particular part. Rather than scouring the Internet for manufacturer's Web sites, Datasheet Locator has links to all the information you will need in one centralized location. The list of manufacturers currently numbers over 700. By directly connecting to the...

The 2002 European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC) was held toward the end of September, and nearly 200 papers presented at the conference are provided at this Web site. Professionals from all over the world, representing industry and academia, contributed their research and ideas. Most, if not all, of the papers are in English, with topics ranging from analog and digital circuits to...
IEEE Global History Network

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an industry organization, and its Global History Network (GHN) is a wiki that "fosters the creation of narratives that not only document the history engineering practice but also explain when, how and why these myriad of technologies developed as they did." The homepage of the website for GHN has an "innovation map" and an...
IEEE: Power Electronics Society (PELS)

IEEE's Power Electronics Society (PELS) "helps in the development and effective application of power electronics technology." Power electronics is definted as "the application of electronic circuits to energy conversion," which is used "everywhere you look," including in computers automobiles, telecommunications, space systems and satellites motors, lighting, and alternative energy. The PELS...
Mike's Electric Stuff

Mike's Electric Stuff is a popular Web site with various odds and ends about electronics and related equipment. Ever wondered just how much fun microwaving a CD can be? That's just the beginning of the wild things you can find. The site is divided into three main sections: antique glass (e.g., nixie tubes and neon lamps), Tesla coils and high-voltage stuff, and miscellaneous items such as lasers....
SPIE Web: The International Society for Optical Engineering

The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) is a society for research, engineering, and applications of optics, photonics, imaging, and electronics. The SPIE page hosts a large volume of information on optical engineering ranging from publications to employment oportunities to optical standards. Conference calls for papers and conference announcements are also provided.
The Hobby of Electronic Circuit Engineering

This website (originally created in Japanese and translated into English using translation software) by a Japanese systems engineer, Seiichi Inoue, provides an extensive overview of electronic circuit engineering. Topics covered include: Basic knowledge of Electronic parts, Basic knowledge of Engineering Instruments, an Introduction of Engineering Method, and the Assembly Process. A variety of...
The Transistor Museum

The Transistor Museum is a fascinating site "dedicated to preserving the history of the greatest invention of the 20th century." The museum's front page mentions some remarkable facts and quotes that demonstrate the importance of the transistor in modern life. Visitors can read transcripts of lectures, oral histories, and short biographies of notable individuals who played a role in the...
Transistorized! The History of the Invention of the Transistor

Hosted by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in collaboration with the American Institute of Physics and ScienCentral, Inc., this handsome Website serves as a companion to an upcoming PBS documentary, Transistorized!, to be aired November 8, 1999. The searchable site offers in-depth background to the history and science of transistors. An Interactives section includes a rubic's cube type of...
