Synchro and Resolver Conversion, 1980


Synchro and Resolver Conversion, Geoffrey Boyes, Analog Devices, 1980.

This book is an excellent treatment of synchros, resolvers, and resolver-to-digital conversion with applications. It was prepared by the staff of Memory Devices, a division of Analog Devices in the UK where the products were initially manufactured during the 1970s. Many engineers working on systems using these devices still refer to this book today because of its clear explanation of the basic concepts of synchros and resolvers.
