From the Back Cover:

The hands-on, simulation-based introduction to analog electronics.

Analog Electronics with LabVIEW is the first comprehensive introduction to analog electronics that makes full use of computer simulation. Kenneth L. Ashley introduces analog electronics through a series of theory/project sections, in which theoretical presentations correlate directly with circuit measurement and analysis projects. The results of experiments are used to extract device model parameters used in subsequent electronic circuit analysis, providing a significant enhancement in the understanding of modern, computer-based electronic-circuit simulation. Readers will master not only the fundamentals of analog electronics, but also data acquisition and circuit simulation with LabVIEW, basic circuit-solution computation with Mathcad, and circuit simulation with Cadence Schematics or Capture. Coverage includes:

  • Elementary analog circuit analysis, including the resistor voltage divider and MOSFET DC gate voltage, MOSFET drain current-source equivalent, amplifier frequency response, and more
  • Fundamentals of transistors and voltage amplification
  • Characterization of MOS transistors for circuit simulation
  • Common-source amplifiers, MOSFET source-follower buffer stage, differential amplifier stage, and MOSFET current sources
  • Operational amplifiers: resistor negative feedback approaches and capacitor-based applications
  • Development of a Basic CMOS Operational Amplifier
  • LabVIEW tutorial with emphasis on analog electronics, the discrete nature of compute data acquisition, and LabVIEW measurement VIs such as the autoranging DC voltmeter
  • Characterization of the BJT for circuit simulation including linear modeling
  • BJT NPN common-emitter amplifier, including emitter degeneration and current-source PNP load with emitter degeneration

For those new to LabVIEW, the book also contains a complete introductory tutorial with emphasis relevant to analog-electronics applications.


The accompanying CD-ROM includes a complete copy of LabVIEW 6 Student Edition Software, along with all the LabVIEW, Mathcad, and Schematics (or Capture) files you need to perform the experiments and exercises in this book, plus samples of all project measurement and data files for measurement simulation.

About the Author:

KENNETH L. ASHLEY has been a faculty member at the Department of Electrical Engineering at Southern Methodist University since 1963 and is actively engaged in developing the undergraduate electronics curriculum with particular emphasis on using computers for electronic-circuit data acquisition. Ashley has recently been involved in the modeling of MOSFET transistors, especially for operation at high frequencies. He holds a Ph.D. from Carnegie-Mellon University and is a member of ASEE, IEEE, and Sigma Xi.
