Electronics Technology Fundamentals is a complete introduction to the increasingly complex study of electronics. This text presents do circuits, ac circuits, and devices in one condensed, easy-to-read volume, allowing these fundamentals to be covered in less time than required by "traditional" texts. Hailed by instructors as "an excellent, innovative approach" to teaching the fundamentals, the text presents all of the same vital information offered in traditional books while implementing the engaging, clear writing style and superb learning tools developed by seasoned authors Robert T. Paynter and B.J. Toby Boydell. The following features are NEW to this Second Edition: bull; bull;Full 4-color format improving clarity and visual appeal bull;Chapter opening vignettes helping the reader to connect the chapter material to "real-world" circuits and applications bull;New sections introducing the reader to component testing and fault symptoms bull;Many newer components and component packages appearing throughout bull;New margin notes introducing applications of principles and circuits bull;New margin notes demonstrating calculator key sequences for many of the problem-solving examples

With the constant development of new applications and technologies, many educators have expressed a need for a single text that presents the fundamentals of electronics (dc circuits, ac circuits, and devices).Electronics Technology Fundamentalswas written to fulfill this need. The first eight chapters cover do circuit fundamentals, the second eight chapters cover ac fundamentals, and the final ten chapters discuss discrete devices and circuits, op-amps, and op-amp circuits. Many basic electronics textbooks provide in-depth coverage of do and ac circuits, but little more than introductory-level coverage of electronic devices and circuits. Unlike these books,Electronics Technology Fundamentalsexplores electronic devices and circuits as thoroughly as it does do and ac circuits, making it the most comprehensive electronics fundamentals textbook on the market. If you compare the second edition ofElectronics Technology Fundamentalswith its predecessor, you'll immediately see significant improvements in style and appearance.Enhanced four-color illustrations, updated photos,andimproved page designcombine with subtle changes in wording to make it easier to study and comprehend the material being presented. Users of the first edition will also notice significant additions to the text. Among these additions: Chapter opening vignettes help the reader to connect the chapter material to "real-world" circuits and applications, or provide historical background. New sections introduce the reader to component testing and fault symptoms. New margin notes Introduce applications of principles and circuits. Demonstrate calculator key sequences for many of the problem-solving examples. Many newer components and component packages are introduced at various points in the text. Learning Aids As always, our goal has been to produce a fundamentals book that students can really use in their studies. To this end, we have retained these effective learning ails from the first edition: Performance-based objectivesprovide a handy overview of the chapter organization and a map to student learning. Objective identifiersin the margins cross-reference the objectives with the material contained in the chapter. This helps students to locate the material needed to fulfill a given objective. In-chapter practice problemsincluded in most examples provide students with an immediate opportunity to apply the principles and procedures being demonstrated. Summary illustrationsprovide a convenient description of circuit operating principles and applications. Many also provide comparisons between related circuits. Margin notesthroughout the text: Highlight differences between theory and practice. Provide reminders of principles covered in earlier sections or chapters. Section review questions.Each section of the text ends with a series of review questions that provide students with the opportunity to gauge their learning processes. Critical thinking questions.These questions, incorporated into many of the section reviews, challenge the students to think beyond the scope of the discussions. Practice Problems.An extensive set of practice problems appears at the end of each chapter. In addition to standard practice problems, most sets include problems relating to previous chapters (Looking Back) as well as challenges (Pushing the Envelope).
