Fundamentals of Linear Electronics 2nd Edition

James Cox, Leo Chartrand

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1998
  • 992 Pages

Overview

Keeping pace with the electronics industry, this edition of our popular Fundamentals of Linear Electronics combination book/lab manual now features reduced coverage of discrete circuitry to allow readers more time to focus on integrated circuits. The first section of book introduces the building blocks - that is, the components used to build electronics circuits - such as the op-amp that provides the foundation for much of today's modern circuitry. The second section progresses logically into an exploration of the circuitry used to construct electronics systems, including: active filters, oscillators, differential amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters, digital-to-analog converters, power amplifiers, and phase-control circuits using SCRs and Triacs. Pre-labs at the end of each chapter simulate the hardware lab experiments while requiring use of a calculator and, if possible, verification of results using MultiSIM or other electronic analysis software.

Leo Chartrand, Niagara College

Mr. Chartrand holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Queen¿s university in Kingston Ontario. He has been teaching digital courses for 20 years at Niagara College in Welland , Ontario. Mr. Chartrand has made industry contributions with various designs including interfacing an infrared camera to a PC, creating a digital circuit board used as a PC training system, and designing a control pendant for an air-filled medical bed. He also worked as a plant engineer for General Motors.
  • An optional section on using MultiSIM in analyzing circuitry, plus movement of diodes to the second chapter, improves the organization and meets ABET requirements.
  • Individual chapters on Data Conversion, Optoelectronics, plus Transducers and Actuators ensures optimal preparation for work with modern electronics systems.
  • In-depth coverage of op-amps introduces readers to the basics, invites them to analyze the ideal op-amp, and cautions them about its limitations.
  • Numerous step-by-step examples in every chapter guide readers through the problem-solving process.
  • Review questions underscore important concepts, allowing readers to gauge their understanding of the material in each chapter and identify topics that require further study.
  • The all-in-one format reduces cost by eliminating the need to purchase a separate lab manual.
  • An e-Resource� - containing PowerPoint slides, a testbank and image library - is available to support instructors in using the book.
