图书简介:

This book is an undergraduate level textbook presenting a thorough discussion of state-of-the art electronic devices. It is self-contained; it begins with an introduction to solid state semiconductor devices. The prerequisites for this text are first year calculus and physics, and a two-semester course in circuit analysis including the fundamental theorems and the Laplace transformation. No previous knowledge of MATLABis required; the material in Appendix A and the inexpensive MATLAB Student Version is all the reader needs to get going. This text can also be used without MATLAB. This is our fourth electrical and computer engineering-based text with MATLAB applications. Our texts are very popular with students and working professionals seeking to enhance their knowledge and prepare for the professional engineering examination. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the nature of small signals used in electronic devices, amplifiers, definitions of decibels, bandwidth, poles and zeros, stability, transfer functions, and Bode plots. Chapter 2 is an introduction to solid state electronics beginning with simple explanations of electron and hole movement. This chapter provides a thorough discussion on the junction diode and its volt-ampere characteristics. In most cases, the non-linear characteristics are plotted with simple MATLAB scripts. The discussion concludes with diode applications, the Zener, Schottky, tunnel, and varactor diodes, and optoelectronics devices. Chapters 3 and 4 are devoted to bipolar junction transistors and FETs respectively, and many examples with detailed solutions are provided. Chapter 5 is a long chapter on op amps. Many op amp circuits are presented and their applicationsare well illustrated. The highlight of this text is Chapter 6 on integrated devices used in logic circuits. The internal construction and operation of the TTL, NMOS, PMOS, CMOS, ECL, and the biCMOS families of those devices are fully discussed. Moreover, the interpretation of the most important parameters listed in the manufacturers data sheets are explained in detail. Chapter 7 is an introduction to pulse circuits and waveform generators. There, we discuss the 555 Timer, the astable, monostable, and bistable multivibrators, and the Schmitt trigger. Chapter 8 discusses to the frequency characteristic of single-stage and cascade amplifiers, and Chapter 9 is devoted to tuned amplifiers. Sinusoidal oscillators are introduced in Chapter 10. There are also three appendices in this text. Appendix A is an introduction to MATLAB. Appendix B is an introduction to uncompensated and compensated networks, and Appendix C discusses the substitution, reduction, and Miller's theorems.
