Introduction to Electronics  (ISBN-10: 140188900X | ISBN-13: 9781401889005)

Obtain the fundamental background in electronics needed to succeed in today's increasingly digital world! The fifth edition continues to expose readers to the broad field of electronics at a level that can be easily understood, with all-new information on circuit board fabrication, assembly, and repair as well as practical applications and troubleshooting. Color has been added to all drawings and photos that supplement the descriptions of important concepts and techniques, making it even easier to master basic theory. Coverage is divided into six sections - DC Circuits, AC Circuits, Semiconductor Devices, Linear Circuits, Digital Circuits, and now, Practical Applications - a new section providing hands-on opportunities to apply DC/AC principles.

Using Multisim 9: Troubleshooting DC/AC Circuits  (ISBN-10: 1418063363 | ISBN-13: 9781418063368)

Now updated to MultiSIM 9, this workbook supplements basic DC/AC instruction and demonstrates how to troubleshoot faulty circuits using MultiSIM as the standard tool. Working on the computer, readers will learn to make measurements, determine faults, replace components, and test results using the same processes and techniques that would be used in an actual hardware lab. This highly engaging approach quickly builds the skill and confidence levels necessary to do live circuit troubleshooting in real-world situations. Using MultiSIM: Troubleshooting DC/AC Circuits, 4E can also be used as a stand-alone guide for fostering a thorough understanding of basic circuit fundamentals.
