Description

For courses in Electronics and Electricity Technology

 

Analog Fundamentals: A Systems Approach provides unique coverage of analog devices and circuits with a systems emphasis. Discrete linear devices, operational amplifiers, and other linear integrated circuits, are all covered with less emphasis on the individual device, and more discussion on how these devices are incorporated into larger circuits and systems.

Features & benefits

 

A wealth of examples helps students understand the relationship among system blocks, interfaces, and input/output signals.

  • Both discrete and integrated analog devices are presented with specific system examples.
  • All chapters feature System Examples and System Notes that are coordinated with chapter objectives.
  • System examples are used to illustrate how analog devices are applied in a system application.
  • System notes present interesting facts, information, and practical applications for specific analog devices and circuits.
  • Multisim files for selected examples and figures are available on the companion website, and Multisim troubleshooting problems are included for most chapters.
  • Worked examples help to illustrate the function and application of both discrete and integrated analog devices. Related problems appear in each worked example to provide additional practice.
  • Many of the system examples in the text focus on “mixed systems” that include both analog and digital circuits. Coverage of analog devices employed in switching applications is also included. 

Chapter pedagogy keeps students focused on learning the concepts.

  • Each chapter begins with an opener page which includes a chapter outline, chapter objectives, a list of key terms, introduction, and a website reference for chapter study aids and other topics. 
  • Each section within a chapter begins with an introduction and objectives for that section.
  • Links to manufacturers’ online data sheets are provided for most of the devices covered in each chapter.
  • Each section ends with a review consisting of questions or exercises that emphasise the main concepts presented in the section. Answers to the Section Review Questions are provided at the end of the chapter.
  • Each chapter ends with a summary, glossary, key formulas list, self-test, troubleshooting quiz, sectionalised problem set, and in many chapters, a Multisim troubleshooting section.   
  • Answers to section review questions, related problems for examples, and the self-test and troubleshooting quiz are at the end of each chapter.
  • A comprehensive glossary and answers to odd-numbered problems are provided at the end of the text. 

The text covers all the necessary mathematics without bogging students down in overly complex examples.

  • The mathematical skill level required to use this text is a basic understanding of algebra and trigonometric functions.
  • Higher-level mathematics, such as calculus, is not required.
