Bangay, R.D., revised Brown, O.F.
The Elementary Principles of Wireless Telegraphy and Telephony
1930 (no date written)
Published from the 'Wireless World' offices, this book "makes the subject
intelligible to persons who do not possess much technical knowledge.... and to
deal with the subject clearly and simply ...". A key technique of the original
author was to explain transformers and other equipment with simple analogies
such as a 'gearbox'. This was one of the best methods of explanation in our
opinion. Chapters include: Theory of the Transformer, Properties of Waves,
Production of Waves, Production of High-Frequency Oscillations, Wireless
Telegraph Receivers, Thermionic Valves, Triodes as Detectors, Amplification by
Triodes, Valve Transmitters, Radio Telephony Transmitters, The Design of the
Complete Broadcast Radio Receiver, Some Special Receiving Circuits,
Transmission and Reception of Short Waves, Radio Direction-Finding.
Triode, screen-grid & pentode valves are all covered in the text. Measurement
of the wavelength of short waves is discussed using Lecher Wires & directional
aerial and beam wireless are also discussed. The chapter on Radio Direction-
Finding covers the Bellini-Tosi and Robinson system. There is even reference to
the work on atmospheric interference carried out by Robert Watson-Watt (the
'father' of the British radar systems used in World War 2).
An owner's name is written in pencil on the front flyleaf. Otherwise the book
is in very good condition apart from half a dozen creased pages and very slight
staining to the flyleaves and adjacent pages. The front board has a small
scratched area and stain not affecting the text. The text on the front board
and spine is gilt-embossed.
xii + 268 pp, with 299 illustrations.

Cypress Semiconductor
CMOS / BiCMOS Data Book
1989
This data book covers a range of CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor)
and BiCMOS (mixed Bipolar/CMOS) integrated circuits. Cypress spearheaded the
drive to introduce very fast, complex and reprogrammable devices, such as the
RAMs, PROMs, EPLDs, RISC, ECL and other now-superceded parts detailed in this
book. These devices were often used to replace the older TTL (Transistor-
Transistor-Logic) to give a speed increase without taking more power, so
keeping circuitry cooler.
Given the increasing pace of obsolescence in semiconductor devices, many parts
in this book no longer have the data easily available, so such data is
invaluable for dealing with obsolescence in equipment.

RF Power MOS Transistors; SC08b
1991
This book is written by a world leader in radio-frequency (RF) component
design and covers the early transistors using beryllium oxide (caution:
TOXIC if devices are broken open).
The devices cover the HF, VHF & UHF bands up to 1000 MHz. As with this kind
of book, there is application information for each device showing it in use
only for the proposed application. Such devices could possibly be used for
other applications, but no guarantees are offered!
Given the increasing pace of obsolescence in semiconductor devices, many parts
in this book no longer have the data easily available, so such data is
invaluable for dealing with obsolescence in equipment.

Concise Catalogue
1995
This data book covers a vast range of Philips semiconductors as used across
all electronic products. This is one of the best short-form reference books
which the author has ever encountered, since the essential characteristics
of simple devices (e.g. diodes & transistors) are summarised in a line, while
more complex devices are briefly described to enable their function to be
established. All devices are cross-referenced to the other Philips data books
and are grouped by function for easy comparison. A great time-saver!
The numerical index at the front of the book covers 93 pages, each with 6
columns. As Philips sold off their several component divisions in recent
years, such data is invaluable for dealing with obsolescence in equipment.
Publication number is 9398 652 83011 and there is an order number

COS/MOS Integrated Circuits
1975
This data book covers two ranges of COS/MOS (COmplementary Symmetry Metal-
Oxide-Semiconductor) integrated circuits. These devices were used to replace
the older TTL (Transistor-Transistor-Logic) which had similar performance, but
took far more power, especially at low operating speeds. These range of
products are the CD4000A and the CD4000B series of such devices which
revolutionised electronics and allowed portable devices to run off tiny
batteries for more than a few minutes. One of their earliest uses was in
digital watches.
Softcover, 645 pp. In good condition, apart from a grubby front edge to the
text block and a torn front flyleaf, discoloured from the remains of cheap
tape. The front cover has been detached, but carefully replaced; its spine
edge browned from the remains of cheap tape. The small print of both covers
has come off in most places due to spidery creasing / scuffing and the spine
is creased. There are a few slightly dog-eared pages & cover (at the lower
right corners). There are names written on the front cover.
1975 (printed November 1974).
