Foundations of Electronics : Circuits & Devices -- 4th Edition
By Russell L. Meade; Robert Diffenderfer. From principles of basic circuits through analysis of passive and active circuit components, Foundations of Electronics: Circuits and Devices 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, resoance, and more. Extensively updated to better meet the needs of today's technicians, the final ten chapters provide a first-rate introduction to modern electronic devices, with greater emphasis on integrated circuits and op-amps plus all-new coverage of optical components. 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.
