About this title


Now revised with a stronger emphasis on applications and more problems, this new Fourth Edition gives readers the opportunity to analyze, design, and evaluate linear circuits right from the start. The book′s abundance of design examples, problems, and applications, promote creative skills and show how to choose the best design from several competing solutions.
∗ Laplace first. The text′s early introduction to Laplace transforms saves time spent on transitional circuit analysis techniques that will be superseded later on. Laplace transforms are used to explain all of the important dynamic circuit concepts, such as zero state and zero–input responses, impulse and step responses, convolution, frequency response, and Bode plots, and analog filter design. This approach provides students with a solid foundation for follow–up courses.

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 skills needed to solve problems, design practical alternatives, and choose the best design from several competing solutions.

 This Laplace Early Versions of the Fourth Edition introduces Laplace immediately after the classical treatment of circuit differential equations, rather than after phasors. This innovative presentation helps you develop real understanding of transient and steady–state responses more quickly than a traditional phasor–first approach, and better prepares you to handle the profusion of transforms in subsequent courses. Phasors are then introduced as a special case of Laplace when they are easier to learn and understand.


  • 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.
  • 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® 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.
