9780131845008: Fundamentals of Analog Circuits

Fundamentals of Analog Circuits offers comprehensive coverage of a wide, relevant array of topics. It integrates theory, practical circuits, and troubleshooting concepts, keeping mathematical details to a minimum. Delving more deeply into coverage of linear integrated circuits than discrete device circuits, the text guides readers through a system of pedagogical tools that both reinforces and challenges their understanding. *Opens coverage with a five-chapter introduction to discrete devices that include diodes and transistor circuits, plus other topics often omitted in beginning devices texts-such as RF amplifiers, transmission lines, transformer coupled amplifiers, direct coupled amplifiers, and power amplifiers. *Discusses the operational amplifier with separate chapters on active filters and oscillators. *Explores current topics of importance, including instrumentation amplifiers, isolation amplifiers, operational transconductance amplifiers (OTA), phase locked loops, A/D and D/A converters, transducers and more. *Indicates current by meters-not arrows-allowing for easy integration into the curriculum of schools using either conventional current flow or electron flow. *Features a solid system of instructional aids that reinforces and challenges readers grasp of concepts, including...- Extensive examples with related exercises, many including troubleshooting problems. - Integrated coverage of troubleshooting. - Device Data provided throughout text. - System applications in each chapter except Ch. 1. - Chapter openers including chapter objectives and introductions to the system applications. - Descriptive section openers with performance-based section objectives. - Section review questions, with answers at the end of the chapter. - Functional two-color format with a full-color section providing realistic printed circuit boards and test instruments for special Test Bench assignments related to certain System Applications. - End-of-chapter summaries, glossaries, key formula lists, multiple-choice self-tests with answers, and problems with odd-numbered answers. *Offers a comprehensive end-of-text Glossary. *Offers an accompanying lab manual with Electronics Workbench software written by one of the authors.

Product Description:

For use in technician-level courses in Analog Devices.

This text offers comprehensive coverage of a wide array of relevant topics. It integrates theory, practical circuits, and troubleshooting concepts, keeping mathematical details to a minimum. Delving more deeply into coverage of linear integrated circuits than discrete device circuits, the text guides readers through a system of pedagogical tools that both reinforces and challenges their understanding.

From the Back Cover:

Fundamentals of Analog Circuits, Second Edition, presents an introduction to discrete linear devices and circuits, followed by comprehensive coverage of operational amplifiers and other linear integrated circuits. This new edition has been expanded and improved to include up-to-date coverage of these topics in a format containing a wealth of features to enhance the learning process.

The text opens with five chapters providing a fundamental discussion of basic concepts, diodes, transistors, and amplifiers. The following ten chapters focus on integrated circuit op-amps, active filters, oscillators, power supplies, special amplifiers, communications circuits, data conversion circuits, and measurement and control circuits. Extensive troubleshooting material and exercises appear throughout these chapters, and further practice and understanding can be achieved with the use of the CD-ROM described below. In addition, the following innovative features assist in making Fundamentals of Analog Circuits, Second Edition, the leading text in its area:

  • Current in a circuit is indicated by a polarized meter symbol that allows the user to apply the direction of preference.
  • Current meters show relative current magnitude in a circuit.
  • Emphasis is on analog integrated circuits, but good coverage of discrete circuits is also included.
  • Topics that are generally not found in other textbooks, such as RF amplifiers and transducers, are included.
  • System applications with Troubleshooting exercises incorporate realistic printed circuit boards, and a related full-color insert section is included.

A full set of ancillaries accompanies this book, including a Laboratory Manual (ISBN 0-13-060673-1). A CD-ROM (ISBN 0-13-060944-7) containing numerous circuits from the text in a locked version of Electronics Workbench® Version 5 and MultiSim Version 6 is also available. The Companion Website, http://www.prenhall.com/floyd, contains practice test questions and other supportive material.

Supplements available to instructors who are using this book for a course include an Instructor's Supplement CDROM (ISBN 0-13-060677-4), the Instructor's Manual (ISBN 0-13-060678-2), PowerPoint® Transparencies (ISBN 0-13-060675-8), and the Prentice Hall Test Manager, a computerized test bank (ISBN 0-13-060676-6). WebCT (ISBN 0-13-062317-2), BIackBoard (ISBN 0-13-062316-4), and Course Compass (ISBN 0-13-065355-1) complete the package.
