This comprehensive and well-organized text discusses the fundamentals of electronic communication, such as devices and analog and digital circuits, which are so essential for an understanding of digital electronics. Professor Santiram Kal, with his wealth of knowledge and his years of teaching experience, compresses, within the covers of a single volume, all the aspects of electronics - both analog and digital - encompassing devices such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, fibre optics, and photonics. In so doing, he has struck a fine balance between analog and digital electronics. A distinguishing feature of the book is that it gives case studies in modern applications of electronics, including information technology, that is, DBMS, multimedia, computer networks, Internet, and optical communication. Worked-out examples, interspersed throughout the text, and the large number of diagrams should enable the student to have a better grasp of the subject. Besides, exercises, given at the end of each chapter, will sharpen the student's mind in self-study. These student-friendly features are intended to enhance the value of the text and make it both useful and interesting.
From principles of basic circuits through analysis of passive and active circuit components, Foundations of Electronics is the perfect choice for introducing readers to the world of electronics technology. Chock full of full-color charts, photographs, schematics and diagrams, this newly redesigned edition uses real-world color codes and strategic highlighting to focus attention on key points. Reader-friendly and ideal for technician training, this comprehensive book begins by exploring basic concepts such as voltage, current, plus power and resistance in series, parallel and combination circuits. Equipped with an understanding of circuit behavior, readers move on to the study of more complex topics, including: network theorems, magnetism, resonance, and more. Throughout the book, step-by-step examples and practice problems appear directly after explanations of key concepts, providing a bridge between must-know theory and hands-on circuit work. Attention-getting previews, helpful key terms lists, learning objectives, summaries and other pedagogical aids have also been integrated into every chapter to motivate users and build their confidence.
The first in Delmar Learning's Herrick & Jacob Series, six tightly integrated electronics engineering technology texts, DC/AC Circuits and Electronics: Principles & Applications teaches readers how to apply basic laws and analysis techniques to traditional introductory circuits, as well as popular, real-world DC and AC circuits. Central to this book is its ability to engage readers who are new to the study of electronics in interesting and useful concepts from the start, guiding them in their efforts to learn how to develop and apply fundamental laws. Throughout the book, only those circuit theorems and analysis techniques that are practical and typically used in real-world circuit analysis ...
This cutting-edge textbook with coverage matching the electronics units of many vocational engineering courses is organized with a logical learning progression, making it ideal for a wide range of electronics courses. The approach is student-centred and includes numerous examples and activities, web research topics, self test features, highlighted key facts, formulae and definitions. A companion website with interactive exercises and illustrations is included.
For courses in Electric Circuits. This unique and innovative laboratory manual helps students learn and understand circuit analysis concepts by using Electronic Workbench software to simulate actual laboratory experiments on a computer. Students work with circuits drawn on the computer screen and with simulated instruments that act like actual laboratory instruments. Circuits can be modified easily with on-screen editing, and analysis results provide fast, accurate feedback. “Hands-on” in approach throughout – in both interactive experiments and a series of questions about the results of each experiment – it is more cost effective, safer, and more thorough and efficient than using hardwired experiments. This lab manual can be sold for use with any DC/AC text. Note: This book no longer comes with a CD. Any reference to a CD within the book is out of date and will be updated on our next printing.

Why do the lights in a house turn on when you flip a switch? How does a remote-controlled car move? And what makes lights on TVs and microwaves blink? The technology around you may seem like magic, but most of it wouldn’t run without electricity. Electronics for Kids demystifies electricity with a collection of awesome hands-on projects. In Part 1, you’ll learn how current, voltage, and circuits work by making a battery out of a lemon, turning a metal bolt into an electromagnet, and transforming a paper cup and some magnets into a spinning motor. In Part 2, you’ll make even more cool stuff as you: –Solder a blinking LED circuit with resistors, capacitors, and relays –Turn a circuit...
This introductory text covers basic electronics and the behavior of passive components, circuit analysis and systematic troubleshooting. The analytical methods used are strongly based on Ohm's and Kirchoff's Laws. Mathematics are used for analysis, but only after a solid, intuitive understanding of circuit or device operation has been established. With a heavy emphasis on critical thinking over rote memorization, and the coverage of state of the art technology, this text truly prepares students to use and apply the knowledge they acquire.
