|About the Book|
Available in both electron flow and conventional flow versions, this in-depth book on the fundamentals of electronic technology hones in on core choice topics to ensure a solid foundation, and incorporates a system of useful and effective learning aids modeled after the authors successful book on devices. Provides a topically streamlined yet substantial introduction to electric circuits, with solid coverage such rudimentary topics as the principles of electricity, DC circuit components, series circuits, theorems and conversions, complex analysis techniques, magnetism, inductors, transformers, and RC circuits. Contains a consistent and useful framework for learning that includes performance-based objectives- objective identifiers- margin notes- highlighted lab references- in-chapter practice problems- summary illustrations- section review questions- chapter summaries- and practice problems. Presents a functional use of four-color designed to help readers distinguish between the parts and values that make up the various circuits and graphs. Supplements book with Electronics Workbench( (EWB) Applications Problems - a simulation software that contains exercises relating directly to various figures throughout the text. Practical appendices offer information on conversions and units, component standard values & color codes, schematic symbols, and selected equation derivations, and more.
