The conventional flow version of Foundations of Electronics: Circuits and Devices comprehensively teaches electronics fundamentals for both DC and AC circuits, from Ohm’s Law through series and parallel circuits, and features strong coverage of solid-state devices theory and important practical circuits in which diodes, BJT’s, FET’s, MOSFET’s and optoelectronic devices are used. The Second Edition has been updated to better provide a foundation in power supplies, amplifiers, oscillators, op-amps, and optoelectronic systems that readers need to launch a career or pursue more advanced study. Real-world color codes and strategic highlighting combine with color charts, photos, schematics, and diagrams to build an understanding of circuits and devices that bridges the gap between must-know theory and hands-on circuit work. Other enhancements include totally new, automated calculations for the formulas in the book on the accompanying CD, and all-new information on admittance and susceptance.
