Description

This unique book shows just how simple it is to design electronic circuits, using little more than Ohm's law and the capacitor impudence equation. Numerous practical circuit design examples are offered using currently available devices and standard-value components.

Commencing with an introduction to semiconductors and pn-junction theory, the Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Electronic Devices and Circuits covers all the most important semiconductor devices in general use today. The operation of each device is carefully explained, and its characteristics and parameters are discussed in detail. Circuit applications are then treated, and the design and analysis of circuits involving the device are investigated. Coverage includes IC operational amplifiers, IC audio amplifiers, and IC voltage regulators.

Distinctive Features
BLTakes a straightforward, no-nonsense approach.
BLOffers learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, practice problems at the end of each section, and end-of-chapter review questions and problems.
