For courses in basic electronics and electronic devices and circuits

Electronic Devices, 10th Edition, provides a solid foundation in basic analog electronics and a thorough introduction to analog integrated circuits and programmable devices. The text identifies the circuits and components within a system, helping students see how the circuit relates to the overall system function.

Full-colour photos and illustrations and easy-to-follow worked examples support the text's strong emphasis on real-world application and troubleshooting. Updated throughout, the 10th Edition features selected circuits keyed to Multisim V14 and LT Spice files so that students learn how to simulate, analyse, and troubleshoot using the latest circuit simulation software.

Features & benefits
  • Provides a solid foundation in basic principles and then moves into practical applications of those principles. The book provides up-to-date, complete coverage of basic circuits and concepts and then coverage of analog integrated circuits.
  • Allows students to see how theory can be applied to a real-world situation.
  • The Device Application at the end of most chapters shows how a specific device or circuit is used and takes students through the steps of design specification, simulation, prototyping, circuit board implementation, and testing.
  • A Programmable Analog Design feature (Chapters 12—16) offers students an introduction to analysing and designing analog circuits by programming FPAAs (field programmable analog arrays) or dpASPs (dynamically programmable analog signal processors).
  • Teaches students practical troubleshooting techniques. Throughout the text, troubleshooting sections present methods and procedures for identifying, isolating, and correcting faulty devices and circuits.
  • Shows students how to use and apply the concepts and then solve a similar problem on their own. Numerous worked-out examples illustrate and clarify concepts or procedures. A corresponding Related Problem allows students to solve a similar problem on their own.
  • Provides students with relevant illustrations of equipment and schematics they will encounter in the field. Hundreds of full-color photographs, illustrations, and schematics visually reinforce important chapter topics.
  • Offers two types of software for circuit simulation, and analysis. Expanded, updated Multisim® Version 14 and all-new LT Spice circuit files for selected examples and troubleshooting problems allow students to measure circuit quantities and troubleshoot faulty circuits in a simulated environment.
  • Reinforces learning with a user-friendly format and an abundance of exercises, problems, and quizzes.
  • Chapter openers include a chapter outline, objectives, introduction, key terms list, a Device Application preview, and a website reference.
  • Sections begin with a section introduction and objectives and ends with section checkup questions to aid students in their study.
  • Diversified problem sets–including basic, advanced, troubleshooting, datasheet, and Multisim troubleshooting problems–offer a chance to practice applying theorems and formulas, encouraging students to think through a solution in a logical manner. 
  • A circuit-action quiz checks students’ understanding of how changes in certain parameters affect the behavior of a circuit.
  • End-of-chapter sectionalised chapter summaries, key term glossaries, formula lists, true-false quizzes, and self-tests allow students to review key concepts and test their knowledge.
