Take a "breadth-first" approach to teaching electronics with a strong emphasis on design and simulation in Rashid's MICROELECTRONIC CIRCUITS: ANALYSIS AND DESIGN, 3E. This book introduces general characteristics of circuits (ICs) to prepare students for circuit design and analysis techniques. More than half of the problems and examples concentrate on design and use software tools extensively. Important circuits are analyzed in worked-out examples that introduce basic techniques and emphasize the effects of parameter variations. The book then offers a more detailed study of devices and circuits and how they operate within ICs. The book's proven sequence of introducing electronic devices and circuits, then electronic circuits and applications, and finally, digital and analog integrated circuits is easily adaptable for one or two-term courses. Students apply theory to real-world design problems as they master computer simulations for testing and verifying designs.
- REVISED CHAPTER INTRODUCTIONS AND OTHER LEARNING TOOLS ENHANCE STUDENT COMPREHENSION. New pedagogy throughout this edition, including Learning Levels, Review of What We Know, What We Have Learned, and Performance Parameters for each chapter, guides learners through practical applications while building upon and reinforcing key concepts.
- NEW CHAPTER REVIEW QUESTIONS ENSURE UNDERSTANDING. Helpful Review Questions with corresponding answers enable students to check their comprehension of chapter concepts before progressing.
- NEW CHAPTER (CH. 7) EXAMINES BIPOLAR VERSUS MOS TRANSISTORS AND AMPLIFIERS. Students study the differences, strengths and limitations of each type of transistor and amplifier.
- NEW CHAPTER (CH. 14) INTRODUCES THE BASIC STRUCTURE OF DIFFERENTIAL AMPLIFIERS. Students become familiar with performance parameters, the internal structure of differential amplifiers and the design of current sources before working with differential amplifiers in more detail in the following chapter.
- NEW CHAPTER (CH. 8) PRESENTS FREQUENCY RESPONSE OF BJT AND MOSFET AMPLIFIERS. Readers examine the frequency responses of common-emitter, common-collector, common-base and multistage BJT amplifiers as well as the frequency response of common-source, common-drain and common-gate MOSFET amplifiers.
- EXPANDED TOPICS AND EXAMPLES FURTHER CLARIFY CRUCIAL CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS. Students gain a solid understanding of semiconductors, dc and small signals models of BJTs and MOSFETs, different types of tuned amplifies Delyiannis-Friend circuit, stagger-tuned band-pass filter and Chebysshev filters, delay functions and filters, flip-flops, analog multipliers and applications, and voltage regulators.
- INTEGRATED SOFTWARE TOOLS ENABLE BOTH ANALYSIS AND DESIGN VERIFICATIONS. These developed Mathcad files highlight worked-out calculations so students can explore the effects of design parameters.
- COVERAGE OF PSPICE IS INTEGRATED THROUGHOUT TO DEMONSTRATE HOW THIS SPICE ANALOG CIRCUIT SIMULATION SOFTWARE FOR PERSONAL COMPUTERS IS USED TODAY. Students gain a thorough introduction to the use of PSpice for testing, verification, and refinement of circuit designs. Worked-out examples and PSpice Simulation and Verifications serve as a road map for this edition's complete, effective program of learning.
- PRACTICAL, REAL-WORLD FOCUS HIGHLIGHTS MEANINGFUL APPLICATIONS AND EXAMPLES. This edition's extensive design problems draw attention to real-world issues and how to most effectively employ computer simulations for testing and verifying results.
- "BREADTH-FIRST" APPROACH PROVIDES SOLID FOUNDATION IN MICROELECTRONICS. This effective and proven approach initially introduces your students to electronics at the circuit level before moving to the device level, which creates an understandable and flexible path for coverage of important topics.
- EMPHASIS ON THE DESIGN PROCESS ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO REFINE KEY SKILLS. More than half of the problems and examples in this edition concentrate on design, highlighting the computer software tools used extensively in design problems. Numerous worked-out design examples and end-of-chapter design problems clearly outline and exemplify successful design guidelines and procedures. Design Integration helps students develop the ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired ends.
