From the Back Cover
Electronics plays a central role in our everyday lives. It is at the heart of almost all of today’s essential technology, from mobile phones to computers and from cars to power stations. As such, all engineers, scientists and technologists need to have a fundamental understanding of this exciting subject, and for many this will just be the beginning.
Now in its fifth edition, Electronics: A Systems Approach provides an outstanding introduction to this fast-moving, important field. Comprehensively revised and updated to cover the latest developments in the world of electronics, the text continues to use Neil Storey’s established and well-respected systems approach. It introduces the basic concepts first before progressing to a more advanced analysis, enabling the student to contextualise what a system is designed to achieve before tackling the intricacies of designing or analysing its various components with confidence.
- Provides an integrated treatment of analogue and digital electronics, highlighting and exploring the common ground between the two fields.
- Contains a comprehensive introduction to basic electrical engineering circuits and components, permitting the book to be used as a stand-alone text for introductory courses in both Electronics and Electrical Engineering.
- Throughout the book learning is reinforced by chapter objectives, summaries, worked examples and exercises.
New for this edition:
· A major new chapter on Communications including both analogue and digital techniques.
· A new chapter on Electric Motors and Generators.
· New sections on the Design of Sequential Logic and Implementing Complex Gates in CMOS.
· An extended treatment of topics such as Power Dissipation in Digital Systems, Timers, Microcomputer Programming and System on a Chip (SOC) Devices.
· New Further Study exercises at the end of each chapter, based on engaging real-world problems.
This book is accompanied by a website which contains over 100 video tutorials to help explain key concepts from the book; interactive quizzes to text your knowledge; and downloadable simulation demo files to use with exercises in the text.
