Overview

     The only contemporary electronics text in which design philosophy and methodology are central themes, this outstanding book offers a carefully examined traditional approach to electronic circuits, with added emphasis on design and computer- aided analysis. Written from the designer''s point of view, Electronics offers numerous examples of open-ended design, shows students how to evaluate electronic circuits using PSpiceTM, and provides challenging design problems for student practice as it successfully explains mathematical analysis of circuit models. An outstanding top-down organization treats the basic big- picture issues in the early chapters while saving less essential details for the later chapters. After achieving a basic understanding of the most important concepts, students can efficiently assimilate additional details. By using computer-aided analysis to evaluate circuit designs, the book allows even large classes to achieve realistic design without excessive individual attention by instructors.
