Foundations of Electronics
Extracted from the highly successful Foundations of Electrical Engineering by the same author, this book surveys the fundamental concepts of electronics for nonmajors. The first chapter reviews circuit analysis techniques as related to the analysis of electronic circuits, and the remainder of the book covers electronic devices, digital circuits, analog circuits, instrumentation systems, communication systems, and linear system theory based on complex frequency techniques.
The presentation assumes knowledge of basic physics and calculus and is ideal for a one-semester survey of electronics for students knowing circuit theory. Used with Foundations of Electric Circuits, this book is ideal for a one-semester course in circuits and electronics for physics, engineering, or computer science students.
