Electronics - Circuits and Systems is a truly up-to-date textbook, with coverage carefully matched to the electronics units of the 2007 BTEC National Engineering and the latest AS and A Level specifications in Electronics from AQA, OCR and WJEC. The material has been organised with a logical learning progression, making it ideal for a wide range of pre-degree courses in electronics. The approach is student-centred with Self Test features, including answers, to check understanding and numerous Activities suitable for practicals, homework and other assignments. Key facts, formulae and definitions are highlighted to aid revision, and theory is backed up by numerous examples throughout the book. New in this edition are 'On the Web' features suggesting topics for research at given websites to familiarise the student with the use of the Web as a source of technical information. Each chapter ends with a set of problems, including exam-style questions and multiple-choice questions for which answers are provided on the companion website. New material in this third edition includes: newer additions to the PIC range; programming with PICkit2; more on assembler and BASIC; mobile telephones; flash memory; fuzzy logic; diodes; logic families; programmable logic devices; test equipment, measuring and fault finding. Electronics - Circuits and Systems is now also supported by a companion website, featuring: * Explanations of electronic calculations with a built-in calculator for each kind of calculation * Animated diagrams showing electronic circuits in action * Interactive multiple choice questions with help prompts * Interactive worksheets with 'fill in the missing word' exercises * Answers to the end of chapter revision and multiple choice questions in the book * Extra maths support * Power point presentation of figures from the book, for use in presentations and handouts Owen Bishop's talent for introducing the world of electronics has long been a proven fact with his Beginner's Guide to Electronics, Understand Electronics and a range of popular circuit construction guides being chosen by thousands of students, lecturers and electronics enthusiasts. * Coverage matched to the latest BTEC National and A Level specifications * Highly visual learning style with numerous worked examples appeals to electronics students * Companion website offers interactive learning support for students and PowerPoint slides with illustrations for lecturers
