Description : With the advent of integrated circuit technology, the importance and usefulness of digital electronics has vastly increased. The size, cost and power dissipation have been reduced in the ratio of 2,000:1 and the performance, reliability and efficiency of equipment increased tremendously. This book gives a basic concept of digital techniques and then introduces simple function to complex functions. It uses SSI and MSI, TTL ICs of the most commonly available 54/74 series. The book will be useful to students of electronics and computer technology, as well as to practicing engineers and technicians.
Description : "This book has been designed to meet the needs of students of electronic engineering, computer science and physics. It will also be useful to engineers and scientists who did not have the opportunity to study digital techniques and microprocessors in their college days. The book can be used for self study, practice and as a guide to what can be expected in the examination. The book consists of 12 chapters and 8 appendices. Each chapter contains: Solved problems (300 in the book) Unsolved problems with answers (320 in the book) Questions with Answers (450 in the book) There is separate section containing 465 multiple choice questions (with answers) covering all the topics. Readers will find the exhaustive glossary of over 500 terms very useful.
Description : A perfect guide for the electronic or computer hobbyist looking to gain hands-on experience through home experiments or the electronics student who needs to learn the fundamentals on his or her own time. Written in a `learning-by-doing' format, this Self-Teaching Guide assumes no previous experience with circuits or digital electronics. Experiments give practice using integrated circuits, advanced logic and arithmetic circuits, operational amplifiers, binary codes, transistor logic, and AND and NAND gates.
Description : The theme of this new textbook is the practical element of electronic circuit design. Dr O'Dell, whilst recognising that theoretical knowledge is essential, has drawn from his many years of teaching experience to produce a book which emphasises learning by doing throughout. However, there is more to circuit design than a good theoretical foundation coupled to design itself. Where do new circuit ideas come from? This is the topic of the first chapter, and the discussion is maintained throughout the following eight chapters which deal with high and low frequency small signal circuits, opto-electronic circuits, digital circuits, oscillators, translinear circuits, and power amplifiers. In each chapter, one or more experimental circuits are described in detail for the reader to construct, a total of thirteen project exercises in all. The final chapter draws some conclusions about the fundamental problem of design in the light of the circuits that have been dealt with in the book. The book is intended for use alongside a foundation text on the theoretical basis of electronic circuit design. It is written not only for undergraduate students of electronic engineering but also for the far wider range of reader in the hard or soft sciences, in industry or in education, who have access to a simple electronics laboratory.
