The book provides a wealth of readily accessible information on basic electronics for electrical and computer engineering.
The introduction and treatment of external amplifier characteristics has been condensed into the first chapter, op amps are treated in a single chapter, and treatment of device physics has been shortened and appears in various chapters on an as-needed basis.
For anyone who wants an introduction to electronics.
The new edition of textbook intended for use in the core electronics courses for undergraduate electrical and computer engineering majors. Assuming a background in circuit analysis, Hambley (electrical engineering, Michigan Tech) explain the material by way of examining components of such devices as a function generator, a discrete multistage amplifier, a cardiac pacemaker, and a precision AC-to-DC converter.
