For courses in Basic Electronics and Electronic Devices and Circuits.

From discrete components, to linear integrated circuits, to programmable analog devices, this popular, up-to-date devices text takes a strong systems approach that identifies the circuits and components within a system, and helps students see how the circuit relates to the overall system function. Floyd is well known for straightforward, understandable explanations of complex concepts, as well as for non-technical, on-target treatment of mathematics. His coverage is carefully balanced between discrete and integrated circuits and his extensive use of examples and graphical illustrations makes even complex concepts understandable.
