About the Book

Commencing with an introduction to semiconductors and pn-junction theory, all of the most important semiconductor devices in general use today are covered. The operation of each device is carefully explained, and its characteristics and parameters are discussed in detail. Circuit applications are then treated, and the design and analysis of circuits involving the device are investigated. Coverage includes IC operational amplifiers, IC audio amplifiers, and IC voltage regulators.

A unique feature of this book is that it shows just how simple it is to design electronic circuits, using little more than Ohm's law and the capacitor impudence equation. Numerous practical circuit design examples are offered using currently-available devices and standard-value components.

  • Based upon the principle that an understanding of devices and circuits is most easily achieved by learning how to design circuits. The objectives of the book are to provide clear explanations of the operation of all the important electronics devices generally available today, and to show how each device is used in appropriate circuits.
  • Straightforward, no-nonsense approach - This book shows just how simple it is to design electronic circuits, using little more than Ohm's law and the capacitor impedance equation. Most equations are derived, so that the student knows exactly what is going on.
