Description

For courses in Basic Electronics and Electronic Devices and Circuits.

 

Electronic Devices (ELECTRON FLOW VERSION), Ninth Edition, provides a solid foundation in basic analog electronics and a thorough introduction to analog integrated circuits and programmable devices. The text identifies the circuits and components within a system, helping students see how the circuit relates to the overall system function. Full-color photos and illustrations and easy-to-follow worked examples support the text's strong emphasis on real-world application and troubleshooting. Updated throughout, the ninth edition features new GreenTech Applications and a new chapter, "Basic Programming Concepts for Automated Testing."

Hallmark Features:

 

Sound foundation in basic circuits and concepts–and then coverage of analog integrated circuits.

  • Provides a solid foundation in basic principles and then moves into practical applications of those principles. 

History Notes, Tech Notes, and Safety Notes–appear in the text margins.

  • Provide additional information in an unobtrusive, user-friendly format. 

Application Activity feature–appears at the end of most chapters.

  • Gives students a sense of how the theory of devices and circuits covered can be applied to a “real-world” situation.
  • Relates closely to the two lab manuals (Laboratory Exercises for Electronic Devices by Buchla and Laboratory Exercises for Electronic Devices with Programmable Analog Modules, by Buchla and Wetterling).  

Programmable Analog Design feature–follows the Application Activity in Chapters 12—16.

  • Provides students with an introduction to analyzing and designing analog circuits by programming FPAAs (field programmable analog arrays) or dpASPs (dynamically programmable analog signal processors). 

Circuit simulations, examples, and problem sets–give students experience with chapter concepts.

  • Allows students to measure circuit quantities and troubleshoot faulty circuits in a simulated environment, and makes an excellent transition to lab experiments.  

Strong coverage of troubleshooting and applications–appears throughout the text.

  • Teaches students practical troubleshooting techniques.  

Coverage of advanced integrated circuits–includes operational amplifiers; instrumentation, isolation amplifiers; OTAs; log/antilog amplifiers; and converters.

  • Introduces students to circuits found in today's industry. 

Hundreds of full-color photographs, illustrations, and schematics–visually reinforce important chapter topics.

  • Provides students with relevant illustrations of equipment and schematics they will encounter in the field.  

Over 160 worked examples followed by related problems–provide students with a strong learning framework.  

  • Illustrates the use and application of concepts, theories, and mathematical formulas to promote students' understanding and retention of material.
  • Shows students how to use and apply the concepts and then gives them similar problems to try on their own. 

Diversified problem sets in each chapter–include basic, advanced, troubleshooting, data sheet, and MultiSim troubleshooting problems.

  • Offers students a chance to practice applying theorems and formulas, and encourages them to think through a solution in a logical manner.
  • Gives instructors a variety of assignments to choose from for their class and their lecture.

More than 1400 exercises–and features are provided to reinforce concepts.

  • Includes questions, self-tests, check-ups, and four types of chapter-ending problems.
  • Includes chapter introductions, chapter objectives, section listings, key terms listings, performance-based section objectives, formula lists, chapter glossaries, etc.  

Circuit-Action Quiz–appears at the end of most chapters.

  • Checks for students' understanding of how changes in certain parameters affect the behavior of a circuit.

New to this Edition

Reorganized–Chapters 1 and 2.  

  • The first two chapters have been significantly reworked for more effective coverage of the introduction to electronics and diodes. 
  • New topics such as the Quantum model of the atom have been added.

GreenTech Applications–added after each of the first six chapters.

  • This new feature appears after each of the first six chapters and introduces the application of electronics to solar energy and wind energy. 
  • With recent significant efforts to create renewable, sustainable energy sources to offset and eventually replace fossil fuels, this feature familiarizes students with these relatively new technologies.
  • Coverage of "green" technology provides a starting point for those who may pursue a career in renewable energy field. 

New Chapter–"Basic Programming Concepts for Automated Testing."   

  • This totally new chapter by Gary Snyder covers the basics of  programming used for the automated testing of electronic devices.
  • This chapter has been added to provide electronic technicians, particularly those working in certain environments such as production testing, with a fundamental grounding in automated testing that involves programming. 
  • This chapter is intended to be used in conjunction with the traditional troubleshooting sections and can be introduced or omitted at the instructor's discretion.

More MultiSim Circuits–updated to newest versions.

  • Additional MultiSim circuit files have been added to this edition.
  • All the files have been updated to versions 10 and 11. 

New Format–for Section Objectives. 

  • The new format more effectively reflects the topics covered and their hierarchy. 

Updated coverage–of key topics.

  • LED coverage has been expanded and updated to include more emphasis on high-intensity LEDs which are becoming widely used in many areas, such as residential lighting, automotive lighting, traffic signals, and informational signs. 
  • New coverage of quantum dots. 
  • More emphasis on MOSFETs, particularly in switching power supplies.
