Providing an introduction to good engineering practice for electrical and electronic engineers, this book is intended for first- and second-year undergraduate courses. It deals with engineering practice in relation to important topics such as reliability and maintainability, heat management and parasitic electrical effects, environmental influences, testing and safety. The coverage encompasses the properties, behaviour, fabrication and use of materials and components used in the fields of computing, digital systems, instrumentation, and control. The second edition has been revised extensively to reflect advances in technology, with new material on insulation-displacement jointing and electrical-safety testing.
