These links are for general theory, more specific information is linked to its specific topic on this site ( op amp tutorials may be found in the section components.... op amps. These links may be useful but we have hope to better organize and categorize them in the future. This is Just A Start, help us build up this section.

|Lessons In Electric Circuits
|A free series of textbooks on the subjects of electricity and electronics. Not complete yet, but there is a lot of content here, and the stuff you are interested in may be done, or you may want to help finish it.
|All About Circuits
|Seems to have much the same content as Lessons In Electric Circuits, perhaps more up to date or not. Attached to an active forum.
|The Art of Electronics
|Considered one of the best books on electronics ever written. This is not free, plan to pay about 100 dollars.
|Little notebooks on Timers, Op-Amps, etc with very simple introductory circuits from Forrest Mims. These used to be in Radio Shacks back in the day, are now found in various stores and sites, incl. Amazon.
|Introduction to USB. Covers both the hardware as well as some of the software issues like drivers and classes.
|USB 2.0 Specification
|Free reference documents that cover the hardware and core software of USB
|Free reference documentation for standard USB device classes.
|The C Programming Language
|Considered the bible of C from the orignal designers. The book is short and concise, but considered to be very accessible.
