Back cover copy

The electronic packaging industry continues to undergo rapid change, and currently there is no end in sight to this progress. The adoption of new device packages for high-density assemblies in conjunction with more functionally-complicated, printed circuit board technologies bring about ever more sophisticated design, construction, and packaging techniques that require today's technician to possess special skills. The seventh edition of "Electronic Techniques: Shop Practices and Construction" continues to present a practical and realistic approach for developing the new skills necessary for planning, designing, and constructing state-of-the-art electronic equipment. The new material added to this edition serves to strengthen and update this highly successful text, designed to fulfill the needs of technicians seeking competency in all aspects of electronic design and fabrication techniques. Clear, detailed explanations are combined with a multitude of figures and drawings to provide the most up-to-date coverage anywhere. In addition, the end-of-chapter exercises (short-answer, true/false, matching, multiple choice, and problems) help to reinforce the objectives introduced within the chapter. Features new to the seventh edition include: Chapter 1 has been updated and uses a newer version of PSpice(r) in explanations, examples, and exercises. Chapter 27 is entirely new. This innovative addition addresses the valuable topic of electronic devices for student projects. New appendices complement the new material introduced in chapter 27 and provide a quick reference to manufacturers' and suppliers' websites. Several new additions (to reflect changes made to the student text) have also been made to the Instructor's Manual (0-13-091363-4) .to accompany this text.
