Keeping pace with the electronics industry, this edition of our popular Fundamentals of Linear Electronics combination book/lab manual now features reduced coverage of discrete circuitry to allow readers more time to focus on integrated circuits. The first section of book introduces the building blocks - that is, the components used to build electronics circuits - such as the op-amp that provides the foundation for much of today's modern circuitry. The second section progresses logically into an exploration of the circuitry used to construct electronics systems, including: active filters, oscillators, differential amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters, power amplifiers, and phase-control circuits using SCRs and Triacs. Pre-labs at the end of each chapter simulate the hardware lab experiments while requiring use of a calculator and, if possible, verification of results using MultiSIM or other electronic analysis software.
