This comprehensive revision of a popular text helps non-electrical engineering majors--the future users, rather than the designers of electrical devices, systems, and machines--gain a conceptual understanding of electrical engineering. Early coverage of systems and an emphasis on an IC (integrated circuits) "building block" approach motivates non-majors. The text features integration of analog and digital technology with cutting-edge coverage of op-amps, feedback and analog systems. A section on SPICE, the leading computer-aided circuit analysis software, introduces students to computerized analysis of circuits. Chapter-end Applications capture student interest by relating material to contemporary topics such as automobile suspension systems, high-fidelity audio, and hand-held computers.
