This comprehensive text is suitable for introductory courses in analogue and digital electronics design. Its unique 'top-down' systems approach to electronics starts by covering overall concepts and gradually increasing the level of detail as the reader progresses through the book – ideal for motivating students new to this subject.
It covers the electronics material needed to provide an initial understanding of the design, operation and use of electronic circuits.
The accompanying simulation tools help students conceptualise and understand electronic circuits by allowing the reader to visualise the relevant systems, and by reducing the need to perform complex mathematical analysis.

Electronics play a central role in our everyday lives, being at the heart of much of today’s essential technology – from mobile phones to computers, from cars to power stations. As such, all engineers, scientists and technologists need a basic understanding of this area, whilst many will require a far greater knowledge of the subject.
The third edition of Electronics: A Systems Approach is an outstanding introduction to this fast-moving, important field. Fully updated, it covers the latest changes and developments in the world of electronics. It continues to use Neil Storey’s well-respected systems approach, firstly explaining the overall concepts to build students' confidence and understanding, before looking at the more detailed analysis that follows. This allows the student to contextualise what the system is designed to achieve, before tackling the intricacies of the individual components. The book also offers an integrated treatment of analogue and digital electronics highlighting and exploring the common ground between the two fields.
Throughout the book learning is reinforced by chapter objectives, end of chapter summaries, worked examples and exercises. This third edition is a significant update to the previous material, and includes:
Dr. Neil Storey is a member of the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick, where he has many years of experience in teaching electronics to a wide-range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional engineers. He is also the author of Safety-Critical Computer Systems and Electrical and Electronic Systems both published by Pearson Education.
