A standard text for nearly a quarter-century (first edition, 1972), divided generally into two main components: the dc analysis and the ac or frequency response. This revised edition (5th, 1992) continues to be driven by the growing use of computer software, packaged IC units, and the expanded range of coverage necessary in the basic courses. PSpice is the software analysis package of choice, and the coverage of PSpice is sufficient to permit writing the input file for the majority of networks analyzed in the text. Annotation c.
