Microelectronic Circuits

Eighth Edition

Adel S. Sedra, Kenneth C. (KC) Smith, Tony Chan Carusone and Vincent Gaudet

Series : The Oxford Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Microelectronic Circuits by Sedra and Smith has served generations of electrical and computer engineering students as the best and most widely-used text for this required course. Respected equally as a textbook and reference, "Sedra/Smith" combines a thorough presentation of fundamentals with an introduction to present-day IC technology.

It remains the best text for helping students progress from circuit analysis to circuit design, developing design skills and insights that are essential to successful practice in the field. Significantly revised with the input of two new coauthors, slimmed down, and updated with the latest innovations, Microelectronic Circuits, Eighth Edition, remains the gold standard in providing the most comprehensive, flexible, accurate, and design-oriented treatment of electronic circuits available today.

Special Features

  • 30+ years of excellence and innovation makes this text the gold standard for this required course.
  • Emphasis on circuit design, tradeoffs in configuration and component values helps students understand both analysis and design of microelectronic circuits.
New to this Edition
  • New digital features - including forty step-by-step problem-solving videos - are embedded in the eBook and accessible on a premium site to help students bridge the gap from theory to application.
  • Two new co-authors - Tony Chan Carusone of University of Toronto and Vincent Gaudet of University of Waterloo - add a fresh perspective rooted in their active teaching and research.
  • Thoroughly updated for increased modularity and flexibility, the changes added to the text make it easier for instructors to teach if skipping chapters or covering them in a different order.
  • Overhaul of problem set, (half of 1400 new or revised), reflects the parameters of newer generations of IC technologies.
  • Streamlined coverage - with a 200 page reduction - places a greater emphasis on essentials to make it easier for students to grasp fundamentals and apply them to today's IC design challenges.
