Laboratory Explorations invites students to explore the realm of real-world engineering through practical, hands-on experimentation


Designed to accompany Microelectronic Circuits, Eighth Edition, by Adel S. Sedra, K. C. Smith, Tony Chan Carusone, and Vincent Gaudet, Laboratory Explorations invites students to explore the realm of real-world engineering through practical, hands-on experimentation. Taking a learning-by-doing approach, it presents labs that focus on the development of practical engineering skills and design practices. Experiments start from concepts and hand analysis, and include simulation, measurement, and post-measurement discussion components. A complete solutions manual is also available for adopting instructors.
