Summary

Summary

Completely updated with the most current computer analysis coverage, this classic book on electronic devices and circuit theory provides a detailed study and high level of accuracy, offering users a complete and comprehensive survey on all the essentials they will need to understand in order to be successful on the job. Divided into two main components (the dc analysis and the ac or frequency response), it uses a "building block" approach, progressing from one chapter to another in a systematic manner. Featuring a well-designed color format that highlights and defines important concepts, it covers a majority of the important configurations and applications for each device, and includes numerous examples and applications to reinforce and enhance understanding. Ensures comprehension of fundamental concepts such as diodes and transistors before tackling the more advanced topics such as compound configurations and oscilloscopes. Offers complete coverage of small-signal analysis, and reflects on the growing importance of operational amplifiers in today's market. Examines all of the typical configurations of JFET and MOSFET circuits, along with the basics of designing FET amplifier networks. Devotes a full chapter to BJT transistor modeling to ensure a clear and correct understanding of this key topic, and integrates troubleshooting sections in most chapters that provide general hints on how to isolate a problem, how to identify its causes, and what action to take to rectify it. Uses the very latest version of PSpice Windows (Version 8) throughout the book; hones presentations and simplifies some of the more complex sections; and updates all the artwork, photographs, tables, and specification sheets to meet current standards.
