I know this is a bit off-topic but thought that the value might make up for it.

Here is a link to a list of free online electronics publications:

Lots of very good books/guides to download.

Please note - this post may not present all information available on a subject.

Some of my personal favorites:

Burr-Brown (updated by TI) HANDBOOK OF OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIER APPLICATIONS
(This one is a classic).. When downloaded, it is a PDF file, but when downloaded, the extension is ".tsp", you might have to change it to ".pdf".
http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/lit/getliterature.tsp?literatureNumber=sboa092a&fileType=pdf

Burr-Brown (updated by TI) HANDBOOK of OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIER ACTIVE RC NETWORKS
(This one is a classic.) When downloaded, it is a PDF file, but when downloaded, the extension is ".tsp", you might have to change it to ".pdf".
http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/lit/getliterature.tsp?literatureNumber=sboa092a&fileType=pdf

OP-AMS FOR EVERYONE (Ron Mancini. This will become a classic.)
http://focus.ti.com/lit/an/slod006b/slod006b.pdf

ELECTRICAL SCIENCE (DOD - More US tax dollars at work)

Here is a book about communication. It address many interesting things. It is not the classical communication book (AM+FM+PCM).

Highly recommended.

Alejandro.

Just found this site
Find it quite usefulle for an electronics beginner like me.
http://www.interfacebus.com/Logic_Design_Top.html

For instance : Voltage translation in between families (cmos->ttl etc..)

Quote:

The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing

This does get rave reviews at Amazon, but also consider this "review" if you are going to purchase a hard copy:

Quote:
A great book, but his newer edition is cheaper!, January 3, 2003 ...
Evarything that the other reviewers say is true. However, his newer book is an update with added material, improve typesetiing, and a CD with programs.
Buy the new book, which has a slightly different title, "DSP for Engineers and Scientists..."

I believe that this refers to "Digital Signal Processing: A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists"
ISBN: 075067444X

National Semi has been purchased by TI. So, there is a change in the following. The National Semiconductor application notes can be found on the TI web site at

http://www.ti.com/general/docs/techdocs.tsp?siloId=1

Select "Interface" from the top-most popup, then "application notes" from the second, and fill in the note number such as "AN-979" and you will be linked to the note.

=================================================

National Semiconductor (www.national.com) has some very good application notes on RS422/485 electrical requirements and on RS232. Here are some. Do a search on the website by application number. All are pdf. While the emphesis is on National Products, the general information is very useful and comprehensive.

AN-912 Common Data Transmission Parameters and their Definitions

AN-914 Understanding Power Requirements in RS-232 Applications

AN-1031 TIA/EIA-422-B Overview
AN-979 The Practical Limits of RS-485
AN-1057 Ten Ways to Bulletproof RS-485 Interfaces
AN-759 Comparing EIA-485 and EIA-422-A Line Drivers and Receivers in Multipoint Applications
AN-903 A Comparison of Differential Termination Techniques
An-409 Transceivers and Repeaters Meeting EIA RS-485 Interface Standard
AN-214 Transmission Line Drivers and Receivers for TIA/EIA Standards RS-422 and RS-423

Maxim (www.maxim-ic.com) also has some outstanding notes in this area.

App Note 083: Fundamentals of RS-232 Communications

Guidleines for Proper Wiring of am RS-485 (TIA/EIA RS-485-A) Network

RS-485 (EIA/TIA-485) Differential Data Transmission System Basics

Selecting and Using RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 Serial Data Standards
