Digital versions of exam papers are available to University of York members via York Digital Library (YODL).
Go to http://dlib.york.ac.uk and log in (top right) using your University user name and password.
To find exam papers for Electronic Engineering use the Browse option in YODL, then scroll down the Collection list until you see Exam Papers. From here, select Electronics and you will find past papers from 2009 to 2020.
The company's own corporate website is a good starting point for finding company information. The corporate website, developed for people who are interested in the business, usually contain annual reports and other financial information.
To start a more detailed search for research papers, you'll need to use online databases. These are collections of resources that allow you to search from multiple journals at the same time.
Standards are codes of best practice that contain technical specifications and guidelines about the manufacture of a product or the delivery of a service. They are technical documents.
At York we have access to some of the British Standards. We also have access to all current IEEE standards.
What is a patent?
A patent protects an invention by law and excludes others from making, using or selling the invention.
At York we have three resources that include patent records: Scopus, IEEE Xplore and SciFinder.
