9780471365921: The Analysis and Design of Linear Circuits

Unique in its approach, and highly practical and realistic in perspective, this truly modern introduction to basic linear circuit analysis and design shows readers how to think about and use engineering design for problem solving.

It provides a thorough treatment of the basic principles of circuit analysis, but goes beyond analysis to show the applications of these principles to real-world design and evaluation problems. Throughout, design problems are used to motivate the discussion and to offer a valid alternative method of verifying comprehension of basic circuit concepts. This integration of design concepts and applications is especially valuable in helping instructors meet the ABET Engineering Design criteria.

From the Publisher:

This is the first basic circuits analysis textbook that causes students to think about and use engineering design for problem solving. No other text shows students a realistic, practical approach to circuit design. The integration of design concepts throughout the text will prove especially valuable in helping instructors meet the new ABET Engineering Design criteria.

From the Back Cover:

Thomas and Rosa’s Fourth Edition of The Analysis and Design of Linear Circuits gives you the opportunity to not only analyze, but also design and evaluate linear circuits as early as possible. The text’s abundance of problems, applications, pedagogical tools, and realistic examples help you develop the skills needed to solve problems, design practical alternatives, and choose the best design from several competing solutions. New application examples relating to electronics, computer engineering, signal processing, and instrumentation/bioengineering make this an ideal text for other engineering disciplines.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FOURTH EDITION

  • New application examples relating to electronics, computer engineering, signal processing, and instrumentation/bioengineering provide a broader scope.
  • An early emphasis on design and analysis reinforces your understanding of circuit fundamentals.
  • Early Op-Amp coverage allows you to design practical circuits that you can actually build and use.
  • Laplace transforms a re used to treat important dynamic circuits concepts, such as zero-state and zero-input responses, impulse and step responses, convolution, frequency response, Bode plots, and transfer function and analog filter design.
  • A separate chapter on waveforms and signal characteristics introduces all the important input and output signals encountered in linear circuits.
  • Examples of computer-aided circuit analysis using Excel®,  MATLAB®, Mathcad®, Electronics Workbench®, and PSpice® are integrated throughout the text beginning with chapter 2. All Pspice® examples have been revised and updated to Orcad Release 9.2.
  • Carefully designed learning objectives supported with homework problems and cross-referenced to in-chapter examples enable you to assess your mastery of the material.
  • Chapter-length appendices on Fourier transforms and two-part networks, complete with examples and problems, are available on the Web.
