e-PassiveBook

ePassiveBook


e-PassiveBook is an on-line electronic Passive Components Handbook handled by the European Passive Components Institute. The basic database has been created by digitalisation and editing of the P-O.Fagerholt's famous CLR Passive Components Handbook.

The next target is step by step review the content and update it in order to reflect the latest stage of the industry and technology. 

See About for more details on the initiative.

 

 

 

The mission of the e-PassiveBook is to become the favourite up-to date tool for the industry specialists, component & reliability engineers, circuit designers, graduate students and all supporters of the passive component industry.
