Created to provide a safer and more cost effective lab environment, these innovative manuals introduce new methods to learning and understanding circuit analysis concepts by using Electronics Workbench to simulate actual lab experiments on the computer. Using the latest circuit simulation software, they allow for easy circuit modification, more extensive troubleshooting experiments, and more powerful computational tools. Readers work with circuits drawn on the computer screen and with simulated instruments that act like actual laboratory instruments. Circuits can be modified easily with on-screen editing, and analysis results provide fast, accurate feedback. The manuals provide extensive technical preparation for each interactive experiment, and a series of questions about the results of each experiment requires users to think about and to analyze the results of the experiments in more depth than is customary in other lab manuals.
The manual examines diodes, bipolar transistors, field-effect transistors, operational amplifiers, amplifier frequency response, active filters, and oscillators.
For individuals interested in fine tuning their knowledge of electronic devises using Electronics Workbench.
