Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems 4th International Edition
“Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems” provides comprehensive and accessible coverage of the evolving field of mechatronics for mechanical, electrical and aerospace engineering majors. The author presents a concise review of electrical circuits, solid-state devices, digital circuits, and motors – all of which are fundamental to understanding mechatronic systems. Mechatronics design considerations are presented throughout the text, and in “Design Example” features. The text’s numerous illustrations, examples, class discussion items, and chapter questions & exercises provide an opportunity to understand and apply mechatronics concepts to actual problems encountered in engineering practice. This text has been tested over several years to ensure accuracy. The authors maintain a Mechatronics web site with examples and animations related to thetext and much other relevant material.
Retaining the superb pedagogical style, the text elaborates fundamentals of signal and systems and core communication topics. It is then translated into tools that are essential to the design and analysis of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of mathematics and heuristics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematics abstraction, and new and updated MATLAB exercises, this text provides a thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students.
This is an exciting revision of John Kraus’ classic book “Antennas”, which has been long known as the “Antenna Bible”. A new co-author, Ronald Marhefka has joined the author team for this revision. Many new, modern applications have been added – thus the title change to “Antennas with All Applications”. As well, the references have been updated to include recent additions to the literature. Additionally, the book has been reorganized to make it more user-friendly for both students and professionals. The book now covers the fundamentals of various antennas and concepts in the first half of the book and then gets into more details on those same topics later in the book. This allows a one-semester course to just cover the fundamentals if desired, and a professional to focus on advanced topics if he or she wants.
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.
Microelectronic Circuits, Sixth Edition, by Adel S. Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith This market-leading textbook continues its standard of excellence and innovation built on the solid pedagogical foundation that instructors expect from Adel S. Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith. All material in the sixth edition of Microelectronic Circuits is thoroughly updated to reflect changes in technology–CMOS technology in particular. These technological changes have shaped the book’s organization and topical coverage, making it the most current resource available for teaching tomorrow’s engineers how to analyze and design electronic circuits.
