Synopses & Reviews
Introduced more than a decade ago, the first edition of D.V. Bugg's Electronics: Circuits, Amplifiers and Gates became widely popular for its comprehensive yet concise coverage of all the major introductory topics in electronics. Today, semiconductor chips and integrated circuits are used universally. This second edition was revised and streamlined to focus on the basic principles required to apply this extensive technology.
Electronics: Circuits, Amplifiers and Gates, Second Edition offers a complete introduction to the fundamentals of AC and DC circuits along with complex numbers, bandwidth, and operational amplifiers. It includes a description of the working principles of transistors, outlining doping and the operation of the diode, bipolar transistor, and field effect transistor. The book also features a section on digital logic and concludes with more advanced chapters describing resonance and transients and their relation through Fourier analysis.
Updated to reflect advances in the field over the past decade, Electronics: Circuits, Amplifiers and Gates, Second Edition is fully illustrated throughout with numerous worked examples and sample problems.
This new edition of Professor Bugg's highly successful textbook presents a comprehensive yet concise introduction to topics encountered in a typical undergraduate "electronics for scientists" course. It offers a complete introduction to the fundamentals of AC and DC circuits and feedback. The book concludes with more advanced chapters on resonance and Fourier analysis. Changes in this edition reflect to some extent the progress in the field but also the changes in teaching practice that have taken place over the past decade. The book is ideal for use with a laboratory-based course and is fully illustrated throughout with numerous worked examples and sample problems.
