This book provides an exceptionally clear, non-technical introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications. The Fifth Edition features stronger coverage of key areas (including new PSpice sections in all chapters), new exercises throughout the text, and an improved pedagogical framework. It includes specially designed Technology Theory Into Practice (TECH Tip) sections which link principles to real world practices as well as numerous troubleshooting sections. Plus, Digital Fundamentals, Sixth Edition features an exciting new full color format which uses color to enhance the instructional value of photographs, illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs. Throughout the text's coverage, the use of mathematics is limited to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed troubleshooting emphasis, as always, provides students with the problem solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job!
