All About Circuits (Design Science License)

This free electrical engineering textbook provides a series of volumes covering electricity and electronics. The information provided is great for students, makers, and professionals who are looking to refresh or expand their knowledge in this field.

Digital Circuit Projects: An Overview of Digital Circuits Through Implementing Integrated Circuits (CC BY)

Digital circuits, often called Integrated Circuits or ICs, are the central building blocks of a Central Processing Unit (CPU). To understand how a computer works, it is essential to understand the digital circuits which make up the CPU. This text introduces the most important of these digital circuits; adders, decoders, multiplexers, D flip-flops, and simple state machines.

Electromagnetics I (CC BY-NC-SA) 

This book includes the following topics: electric and magnetic fields, electromagnetic properties of materials, electromagnetic waves, and devices that operate according to associated electromagnetic principles including resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, generators, and transmission lines.

Electromagnetics II (CC BY-NC-SA) 

The book addresses magnetic force and the Biot-Savart law; general and lossy media; parallel plate and rectangular waveguides; parallel wire, microstrip, and coaxial transmission lines; AC current flow and skin depth; reflection and transmission at planar boundaries; fields in parallel plate, parallel wire, and microstrip transmission lines; optical fiber; and radiation and antennas.

Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I (CC BY-NC-SA) 

The text focuses on the creation, manipulation, transmission, and reception of information by electronic means, including elementary signal theory, time- and frequency-domain analysis, sampling theorem, digital information theory, digital transmission of analog signals, and error-correcting codes.

Signals and Systems (CC BY-NC-SA) 

This text introduces signals and systems, with chapters on time domain analysis, Fourier series, Fourier transforms, sampling and reconstruction, and time system design.

Public Domain Course

Electromechanical Technology Series (Public domain)

TERC, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, developed a two-year (four-semester) instructional program designed to prepare technicians for the emerging electromechanical occupations in industry. The project was completed in August 1973 and was supported by grant funds provided by the U. S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. This collection includes all 16 student manuals, which are all now in the public domain and free for reuse and redistribution. Each book’s materials are presented in an action-oriented format combining many of the features normally found in a textbook with those usually associated with a laboratory manual.

MIT - Circuits and Electronics | Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Public domain CC-BY)

designed to serve as a first course in an undergraduate electrical engineering (EE), or electrical engineering and computer science (EECS) curriculum. At MIT, 6.002 is in the core of department subjects required for all undergraduates in EECS. The course introduces the fundamentals of the lumped circuit abstraction.
