SEDRA/SMITH, educating over a million microelectronic circuit students


This market-leading textbook remains the standard of excellence and innovation. Built on Adel S. Sedra's and Kenneth C. Smith's solid pedagogical foundation, the seventh edition of Microelectronic Circuits is the best yet. In addition to updated content and coverage designed to reflect changes in IC technology, the text also provides the most comprehensive, flexible, accurate, and design-oriented treatment of electronic circuits available today.

Amply illustrated by a wealth of examples and complemented by an expanded number of well-designed end-of-chapter problems and practice exercises, Microelectronic Circuits is the most current resource available for teaching tomorrow's engineers how to analyze and design electronic circuits.

New to this Edition

  • A revised study of the MOSFET and the BJT and their application in amplifier design: Two short and completely parallel chapters (5 and 6) introduce each of the two transistor types. A new Chapter 7 follows with a combined treatment of transistor amplifiers, emphasizing the similarities and the important differences of the two devices and their unique areas of application.
  • Improved treatment of such important topics as cascode amplifiers, frequency response, and feedback
  • Reorganized and modernized coverage of Digital IC Design
  • New topics, including Class D power amplifiers, IC filters and oscillators, and image sensors
  • A new "expand-your-perspective" feature that provides relevant historical and application notes
  • Two thirds of the more than 1500 end-of-chapter problems are new or revised
  • A new Instructor's Solutions Manual authored by Adel S. Sedra
  • New and updated ancillaries for students include a Lab Manual, SPICE Simulations, and a revised and expanded website

About the Author(s)

"Still the gold standard"--Elmer A. Grubbs, Northern Arizona University

"I like the new treatment of the MOSFET and the BJT. The authors have broken up two chapters into three chapters, which does a couple of things. Chapters 5 and 6 allow the students to focus solely on the devices themselves. Chapter 7 allows students to focus on transistor amplification while at the same time observing the differences of amplifier topology when employing a MOSFET or BJT."--John Mankowski, Texas Tech University

Teaching Resources

Illuster Technologies


Illuster Technologies Inc. has developed a digitally-controlled lab platform for the design-oriented teaching of analog electronics. AELabs, powered by Illuster's NileDelta open lab platform, introduces users to microelectronic devices presented in this textbook: op amps, diodes, MOSFETs, BJTs, and much more. The software-hardware platform allows users to control live analog circuits through a custom graphical user interface, allowing for quick transitions between circuit configurations and continuous adjustments to circuit parameters. The platform is realized on printed circuit boards (PCBs) using surface mount devices (SMDs), introducing students to industry-standard technology. Unlike the tedious breadboard experiments of the past, which provide an outdated reflection of the industry, this new approach allows students more time to experiment with assembling modern microelectronic 'systems', which include multiple PCBs, stimuli (function generators, audio, DAC), and loads (audio, visual, etc.). In addition to analog inputs via a function generator, AELabs + NileDelta enables the user to probe circuit nodes and analog outputs by the use of an oscilloscope and/or multimeter, making the platform compatible with standard laboratory instrumentation. The AELabs lab document references the textbook to provide easy "plug-and-play" integration into any course employing Microelectronic Circuits.
