Electronic Devices 10th Global Edition
For courses in basic electronics and electronic devices and circuits A user-friendly, hands-on introduction to electronic devices filled with practical applications and software simulation Electronic Devices (Conventional Current Version), 10/e, 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 Tenth Edition features selected circuits keyed to Multisim V14 and LT Spice files so that students learn how to simulate, analyze, and troubleshoot using the latest circuit simulation software.
Add some SPARK to your study of ELECTRICITY
Having trouble understanding the fundamentals of electricity? Problem solved! Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, makes it shockingly easy to learn the basic concepts.
Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by covering direct current (DC), voltage, resistance, circuits, cells, and batteries. The book goes on to discuss alternating current (AC), power supplies, wire, and cable. Magnetism and electromagnetic effects are also addressed. Detailed examples and concise explanations make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key concepts.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s Law, power, and energy
- Kirchhoff’s Laws
- Electrochemical energy
- Electricity in the home
- Protecting electronic equipment
- Electromagnetic interference
- Practical magnetism
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, powers up your understanding of this essential subject.
About the Author
Stan Gibilisco has authored or co-authored more than 50 nonfiction books in the fields of electronics, general science, mathematics, and computing. He has worked as a technical writer in industry, as a shortwave radio broadcast station technician, as a radio-frequency design engineer, and as a magazine editor. One of Stan’s books, the Encyclopedia of Electronics (TAB Books, 1985), was named by the American Library Association (ALA) in its list of “Best References of the 1980s.” Another of his books, the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Personal Computing (McGraw-Hill, 1995), was named as a “Best Reference of 1996” by the ALA. Stan is considered the “father” of the DeMYSTiFieD series.
The author emphasizes the physical appreciation of concepts rather than the mere mathematical manipulation of symbols. Avoiding the tendency to treat engineering as a branch of applied mathematics, the text uses mathematics not so much to prove an axiomatic theory as to enhanced physical and intuitive understanding of concepts. Theoretical results are supported by examples and analogies, allowing students to intuitively discover meaning for themselves.
This book introduces the theoretical elements at the basis of various classes of algorithms commonly employed in the physical layer (and, in part, in MAC layer) of wireless communications systems. It focuses on single user systems, so ignoring multiple access techniques. Moreover, emphasis is put on single-input single-output (SISO) systems, although some relevant topics about multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are also illustrated.
- Comprehensive wireless specific guide to algorithmic techniques
- Provides a detailed analysis of channel equalization and channel coding for wireless applications
- Unique conceptual approach focusing in single user systems
- Covers algebraic decoding, modulation techniques, channel coding and channel equalisation
From the Back Cover
An advanced introduction to algorithmic techniques for wireless communications, blending basic principles with advanced concepts and techniques
This reference provides a high-level introduction to the study of algorithmic techniques employed in digital wireless communication systems over fading channels. Its main objective is to develop a theoretical framework that will enable the reader to develop solutions to detection, equalization, channel estimation, error correction coding and coded modulation problems in wireless communications.
This book discusses in detail deterministic and stochastic descriptions of wireless channels, single-carrier and multicarrier digital modulation techniques, optimal signal detection, channel estimation techniques, channel equalization algorithms, classical and modern channel coding schemes, coded modulation techniques, and iterative methods for channel equalization and decoding of channel codes.
Special features include:
- Important results previously scattered over a huge number of publications are now collected in a single volume
- A broad coverage of fundamental topics in wireless communications, taking into consideration both basic and advanced transmission techniques
- An historical perspective on various important research areas in the field of wireless communication techniques
- Highlights trends in various research areas in the field of wireless communications
This edition features worked examples in every chapter that explained how to use the theory presented in the text to solve different kinds of problems. The text uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguide, and antennas. It also provides a balanced presentation of time-varying and statics field, preparing students for employment in today’s industrial and manufacturing sectors.
