The fifth edition of Microelectronic Circuits provides a framework to develop the student's ability to analyze and design all kinds of electronic circuits. Thoroughly updated and revised, this edition features changes that are evident from the condensed table of contents, and a great deal more that are included in the actual chapters. All the revisions, organization, and topical coverage reflect changes in technology-CMOS technology in particular-by far the most significant development in the world of mainstream electrical engineering. Highlights of the Fifth Edition BLEvenly balanced, streamlined organizational structure: -In each chapter, the "must-cover" topics are placed first and the more specialized material appears last. -The first five chapters, Part I, are organized to form a coherent single-semester introductory course in electronics. Similarly, the next five chapters, Part II, present a body of material suitable for a second one-semester course. The final four chapters, Part III, contain significant topics that can be used as enhancements or substitutes for some of the material in earlier chapters, as well as resources for project or thesis work.BLBoth the MOSFET and BJT chapters have been rewritten and updated, and remain independent of each other. The MOSFET coverage is placed first, but the two devices can be covered in any desired order. BLMany more MOS circuit examples, which use numbers that reflect current technology, are provided throughout. BLChapters 6 and 7 have been completely rewritten to introduce ICMOS and bipolar amplifiers in an accessible, systematic way. In addition, frequency response is now covered where necessary (a "just-in-time" approach) rather than being deferred until much later. This includes brief coverage of the frequency responses of the common source and common emitter amplifiers in Chapters 4 and 5, respectively. BLStudent learning support is enhanced by: -Revising summary sections and including many more summary tables. -Increasing the number and variety of review exercises and end-of-chapter problems. -Adding more PSpice(r) examples and problems with schematic captures.-A new in-text student CD including: Free student versions of PSpice(r) and Electronics Workbench Multisim(r) Textbook Edition (SPICE Simulator), new industry-based design examples, and data sheets from major industrial firms. BLInstructor support is enhanced by: -Improved organization, making it easy to select material to suit a variety of course orientations. -A comprehensive typed Solutions Manual, including detailed answers to all problems in the text and overhead masters. -A new CD and web site with PowerPoint(r) slides and Lecture Outlines. -And additional forthcoming ancillaries.
