Electronics: Basic, Analog, and Digital with PSPICEby Nassir H Sabah
Synopses & Reviews
Electronics: Basic, Analog, and Digital with PSpice does more than just make unsubstantiated assertions about electronics. Compared to most current textbooks on the subject, it pays significantly more attention to essential basic electronics and the underlying theory of semiconductors.
In discussing electrical conduction in semiconductors, the author addresses the important but often ignored fundamental and unifying concept of electrochemical potential of current carriers, which is also an instructive link between semiconductor and ionic systems at a time when electrical engineering students are increasingly being exposed to biological systems.
The text presents the background and tools necessary for at least a qualitative understanding of new and projected advances in microelectronics. The author provides helpful PSpice simulations and associated procedures (based on schematic capture, and using OrCAD 16.0 Demo software), which are available for download. These simulations are explained in considerable detail and integrated throughout the book. The book also includes practical, real-world examples, problems, and other supplementary material, which helps to demystify concepts and relations that many books usually state as facts without offering at least some plausible explanation.
With its focus on fundamental physical concepts and thorough exploration of the behavior of semiconductors, this book enables readers to better understand how electronic devices function and how they are used. The book 's foreword briefly reviews the history of electronics and its impact in today 's world.

Book News Annotation:
Sabah (American U. of Beirut, Lebanon) has written an electronics textbook that focuses more on basic electronics and its underlying theory of semiconductors than most. While the topic is vast, the author covers the background and tools needed to at least obtain a good grasp of new and anticipated advances in microelectronics. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Electronics: Basic, Analog, and Digital with PSpice does more than just make assertions about electronics without adequately justifying them. It provides a unique focus on fundamental physical concepts and the underlying theory of semiconductors to reinforce understanding and help readers develop a superior command of how electronic devices function. Addressing the important but often ignored topic of electrochemical potential of materials, it presents the tools necessary to develop a qualitative understanding of new and projected performance improvements to microelectronics. It integrates PSpice simulations into the discussion, explaining them in considerable detail. It also includes practical, real-world examples, problems, and other supplementary material.
