Reference Books

Like their counterparts in education, when Keysight engineers are not designing and producing Keysight instruments, some of them stay busy writing about their field. Here is a selection of their work on electronic test and measurement topics.

Books Figure 1

The Analysis and Design of Linear Circuits, 6th Edition

This book gives the reader the opportunity to not only analyze, but also design and evaluate linear circuits as early as possible. The text's abundance of problems, applications, pedagogical tools, and realistic examples helps engineers develop the skills needed to solve problems, design practical alternatives, and choose the best design from several competing solutions. The experiments use the common Keysight instruments available in most electronics labs. Available thru Wiley, ISBN: 978-0-470-38330-8.

LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless Design and Measurement Challenges

LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless, Design and Measurement Challenges

Keysight’s latest book delves into the new 3GPP LTE cellular technology, from both the technical and practical point of view, before its projected deployment in 2010. Written by Keysight’s measurement experts, this book offers valuable insight into LTE technology and its design and test challenges. Available thru Wiley, ISBN: 978-0-470-68261-6.

The Art of Measurement: Theory and Practice

Author and retired HP employee Ron Potter introduces "The Art of Measurement: Theory and Practice," published by Prentice Hall in 2000. A measurement used to simply involve reading a voltmeter or a ruler of some kind, but with the advent of the microprocessor it has become possible to measure systems with implicit or hidden parameters, like the equivalent circuit elements of a transistor, or the modal parameters of a mechanical structure. Available through Prentice-Hall and most bookstores. ISBN 0-13-026174-2.

Electronic Instrument Handbook, 2nd edition

Editor Clyde Coombs assembled 33 Keysight R&D managers amd added the talents of several educators to build a definitive reference on the inner workings of electronic instruments. This hardcover book is more than 800 pages worth of valuable reference material, covering a bandwidth from dc to light. Also available through McGraw Hill, ISBN 0-07-012616-X Keysight E5800A

Electronic Test Instruments: Analog and Digital Measurements, 2nd edition

Robert Witte is a Keysight R&D manager who formerly taught college engineering. His easy reading book on the basics of electronic test instruments complements Keysight's Basic Instrument product line. This second edition of the book includes updates to all of the chapters, incorporating recent developments in technology while still remaining focused on the concepts and principles that last over time.Excellent for reference or text. 400 pages, cloth format. Available through Prentice-Hall, ISBN 0-13-066830-3.

Spectrum and Network Measurements

Also by Robert Witte, this book covers the theory and practice of spectrum and network measurements in electronic systems. Intended for readers who have a background in electrical engineering and use spectrum or network analyzers to characterize electronic signals or systems, this classic volume successfully consolidates the pertinent theory into one comprehensive treatment of frequency domain measurements. Hardcover, 350 pages. ISBN 978-1-61353-014-6.

Graphical Programming: A Tutorial for Keysight VEE

Written by Bob Helsel, another Keysight employee who enjoys teaching, this book makes easy work of Keysight VEE, a powerful graphical programming language. Available through Prentice-Hall and bookstores, ISBN 013-631797-9.

FFT Lab Experiments Notebook

A series of six college level experiments written by Dr. Michael Thompson for a communications lab at Colorado State University. Designed around Keysight 54600-series oscilloscopes using a Keysight 54657A FFT module, these experiments cover windowing, leakage, aliasing and more. Free when you purchase the Keysight 54657A or Keysight 54659B module. Right-to-copy included. Keysight Product Note 54600-3

Using the FFT in Keysight 54600-Series Oscilloscopes

A very brief and easy-to-understand application note on the fundamentals of a aliasing, windowing and sampling. Free when you purchase the Keysight 54657A or Keysight 54659B module. Keysight 5091-7568E

The Impedance Measurement Handbook: A Guide to Measurement Technology and Techniques

Written by engineers who design impedance measuring instruments, the handbook covers impedance measurement basics, instruments, fixturing and cabling, errors, compensation and applications. 95 pp, Keysight 5950-3000 Free to educators

DC Power Supply Handbook

In electronic products, the dc power supply is the dominant failure mechanism. One of many application notes available free from Keysight, the DC Power Supply Handbook explains the practical aspects of operating and connecting power supplies. It covers sensing, grounding, multiple output connections, remote programming, specifications and power ratings. 65 pages, paperback. AN 90B Free to educators
