Electronics plays a central role in our everyday lives, being at the heart of much of today's essential technology - from mobile phones to computers and from cars to power stations. As such, all engineers, scientists and technologists need a basic understanding of this area, whilst many will require a far greater knowledge of the subject.
The fourth edition of Electronics: A Systems Approach is an outstanding introduction to this fast-moving, important field. Fully updated, it covers the latest changes and developments in the world of electronics. It continues to use Neil Storey's well-respected systems approach, firstly by explaining the overall concepts to build students' confidence and understanding before looking at the more detailed analysis that follows. This allows the student to contextualise what the system is designed to achieve, before tackling the intricacies of the individual components. The book also offers an integrated treatment of analogue and digital electronics, highlighting and exploring the common ground between the two fields.
This fourth edition represents a significant update and a major expansion of previous material, and now provides a comprehensive introduction to basic electrical engineering circuits and components in addition to a detailed treatment of electronic systems. This extended coverage permits the book to be used as a stand-alone text for introductory courses in both Electronics and Electrical Engineering.
This new edition includes:
A range of new chapters covering the basics of Electrical Circuits and Components
An introduction to Resistive, Capacitive and Inductive elements, Alternating Voltages and Currents, and AC Power
New chapters on the Frequency Characteristics of AC circuits and on Transient Behaviour
A new consolidated treatment of Noise and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
A new chapter on the Internal Circuitry of Operational Amplifiers.
Throughout the book learning is reinforced by chapter objectives, end-of-chapter summaries, worked examples and exercises.
