9780130310859: Introductory DC/AC Electronics (5th Edition)

This fine-tuned, carefully tested and accuracy checked volume meets the needs of those beginning their training or expanding their career skills in electronics today. It builds upon the highly praised “practical learning approach,” making all of the topics reader friendly. This book covers basic electricity, direct current and alternating current circuits, through semiconductor devices and op amps, simulation circuits, circuit analysis tables, protoboard pictorials, historical success stories, guided examples, actual circuit applications, device testing, circuit troubleshooting, performance based objectives, quick-references summary sheets, integrated mini-math reviews. Accompanying EWB Multi-Sim CD-ROM provides readers with full simulations of forty of the book circuits. Also contains a complete Multi-Sim tutorial, two 150-circuit data files and a complete locked version of Multi-Sim version 6. New First-section Mini-Math Reviews are included to help review and reinforce the math concepts needed for electronic concepts that follow. New end-of-chapter Job Interview Tests challenge readers' technical knowledge along with testing their character traits with personal questions. A free CD-ROM in the back of every book contains a demonstration of the circuit simulation software “Electronics Workbench” (EWB). In addition to the 15 circuit EWB demo, the CD-ROM also contains a complete EWB tutorial, circuits file for over 100 circuits from the book, and a complete locked version of EWB version 5.0. For those beginning their training or expanding their career skills in electronics.
