This introduction provides step-by-step instructions for using PSpice and Orcad Capture to analyze ac and dc circuits, circuits in the time domain to determine the complete response, and circuits in the frequency domain to determine the frequency response.


A book/CD-ROM text for a one- to three-semester course in electric circuits or linear circuit analysis, for students exposed to basic concepts of electric circuits for the first time. Emphasis on circuit design is enhanced by chapter-opening design challenges. Other pedagogical features include chapter previews, historical vignettes, worked examples, exercises, and problems. The CD-ROM contains a set of interactive exercises and examples. Prior basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus is required. Dorf teaches electrical and computer engineering at the University of California- Davis. Svoboda teaches electrical and computing engineering at Clarkson University. Annotation c.
