Microelectronic Circuit Design is known for being a technically excellent text. The new edition has been revised to make the material more motivating and accessible to students while retaining a student-friendly approach. Jaeger has added more pedagogy and an emphaisis on design through the use of design examples and design notes. Some pedagogical elements include chapter opening vignettes, chapter objectives, "Electronics in Action" boxes, a problem solving methodology, and "design note" boxes.
The number of examples, including new design examples, has been increased, giving students more opportunity to see problems worked out. Additionally, some of the less fundamental mathematical material has been moved to the ARIS website.
In addition this edition comes with a Homework Management System called ARIS, which includes 450 static problems.

A Problem Solving approach teaches students how to work through problems step by step. This methodology is introduced in the opening chapter and used in all of the worked examples.
New design highlights examples, design information and problem solving strategy, making the text easier to use for both students and instructors.
Modular approach: Digital circuits are covered before analog circuits, giving the text a modern feel, but the two parts are not dependent, so it is easy for professors to cover the material in the order that they choose.
Examples: Additional examples, including new design examples have been added and are followed by matched exercises. These make it easier for students to learn and practice the material.
"Electronics in Action" boxes present real life applications so that students can see the connection between what they are learning and how it can be practically used.
Computer tools are used for problem solving throughout the text, including Electronics Workbench, which allows students to simulate circuit design.
In this edition, some of the long equation derivations have been moved to the web, making the text less mathematically complex. Yet students can still access them online.
Extensive website includes solutions, PowerPoints, Electronics Workbench.About the Author:
Richard Jaeger earned his bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Florida. Professor Jaeger was one of the first three faculty members appointed Distinguished University Professor by Auburn University. His teaching awards include the Birdsong Merit Teaching Award and selection by ECE undergraduate students as Outstanding Electrical Engineering Faculty Member. In 1995 he was named Distinguished Graduate Faculty Lecturer. His current research interests include solid-state circuits and devices, electronic packaging, piezoresistive stress sensors, high heat flux cooling, low temperature electronics, VLSI design, and noise in electronic devices and circuits.
