General Information and Schematics:
  • Iguana Labs Electronics Tutorials
  • "the best view to electronics on the Web" (links), Electronics Basics (links to basic info)
  • Harry Lythall Homebrew Pages (transistor biasing, soldering, printed circuits, schematics)
  • Martijn Beelen Transistor Pages (what is, FETs, basic types)
  • Tech Topics by George Carlson (PCBs, enclosures, getting parts)
  • Sam Goldwasser Schematics
  • Bill Bowden's Hobby Circuits
  • Electric Hobby Projects at AppliancePartsPros
  • 4QD Pages of Interesting Circuits
  • DIY Electronics Links, Alex Electronic Test Bench (many useful links)

  • Chip Directory
  • Net Work A-Z index, Manufacturers, Companies (more links)
  • Test Buyer (buyer guide on meters, power supplies and oscilloscopes)

  • Component and Equipment Suppliers:
  • Mouser (best component source for a hobbyist: no min order, good selection, shipping of backorders on them)
  • Newark (backorders will cost you)
  • Digi-Key
  • Allied Electronics
  • Techni-Tool (only equipment, relatively expensive)

    Surplus and Aimed at Hobbyists On-Line Stores:
  • Electronix Express
  • Radio Shack (low S&H, fast delivery, often beats going to a local RS store)
  • Electronic Goldmine
  • Jameco (best source of meters for a hobbyist)
  • Marlin P. Jones & Assoc., Inc.
  • Herbach and Rademan (many electro-mechanical components)
  • All Electronics
  • Action Electronics
  • Dalbani (low declared prices but may cost you most in the end)

    Semiconductor Component Manufacturers:
  • NTE Electronics, Inc. (many replacement components, in effect also a good source of reference info.)
  • STMicroelectronics
  • National Semiconductor
  • Maxim (power management ICs, excellant documentation, friendly reps.)
  • Motorola Semiconductor Products
  • ON Semiconductor (detached in '99 from Motorola)
  • Intersil (former Harris Semiconductor)
  • International Rectifier
  • Central Semiconductor Corp.
  • Philips Semiconductors
  • Linear Technology
  • Fairchild Semiconductor
  • Marktech Optoelectronics (good articles on LEDs)
  • Micrel (power supply ICs)

    Battery Manufacturers:
  • Panasonic, Duracell, Sanyo, Energizer

  • M. Plonus, Electronics and Communications, Harcourt/Academic Press, San Diego, 2001 (succinct, comprehensive)
  • A. J. Diefenderfer and B. E. Holten, Principles of Electronic Instrumentation, Saunders College, Philadelphia, 1994 (a reasonable comprehensive introduction despite some flaws)
  • P. Horowitz and W. Hill, The Art of Electronics, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1995 (advanced)
  • W. G. Jung, IC Op-Amp Cookbook, Prentice Hall, 1997 (recommended by Steve Kurt)
