From discrete components to linear integrated circuits, this popular, up-to-date book on devices takes a strong systems approach that identifies the circuits and components within a system, and helps readers see how the circuit relates to the overall system function. Floyd is well known for straightforward, understandable explanations of complex concepts, as well as for non-technical, on-target treatment of mathematics. His coverage is carefully balanced between discrete and integrated circuits and his extensive use of examples makes even complex concepts understandable. Chapter topics cover diode applications, special-purpose diodes, bipolar junction transistors, transistor bias circuits, bipolar junction transistors amplifiers, field effect transistors, FET amplifiers, power amplifiers, amplifier frequency response, thyristors and other devices, operational amplifiers, basic op-amp applications, special-purpose op-amp circuits, active filters, oscillators, communications circuits, and voltage regulators. For electronics technicians and technologists, engineers, and electronics instructors.
The last research frontier in high frequency electronics now lies in the so-called THz (or submillimeter-wave) regime between the traditional microwave and infrared domains. Significant scientific and technical challenges within the terahertz (THz) frequency regime have recently motivated an array of new research activities. During the last few years, major research programs have emerged that are focused on advancing the state of the art in THz frequency electronic technology and on investigating novel applications of THz frequency sensing. This book serves as a detailed reference for the new THz frequency technological advances that are emerging across a wide spectrum of sensing and technology areas.
Circuits overloaded from electric circuit analysis?
Many universities require that students pursuing a degree in electrical or computer engineering take an Electric Circuit Analysis course to determine who will “make the cut” and continue in the degree program. Circuit Analysis For Dummies will help these students to better understand electric circuit analysis by presenting the information in an effective and straightforward manner.
Circuit Analysis For Dummies gives you clear-cut information about the topics covered in an electric circuit analysis courses to help further your understanding of the subject. By covering topics such as resistive circuits, Kirchhoff’s laws, equivalent sub-circuits, and energy storage, this book distinguishes itself as the perfect aid for any student taking a circuit analysis course.

A clear, plain-English guide to this complex scientific theory
String theory is the hottest topic in physics right now, with books on the subject (pro and con) flying out of the stores. String Theory For Dummies offers an accessible introduction to this highly mathematical “theory of everything,” which posits ten or more dimensions in an attempt to explain the basic nature of matter and energy. Written for both students and people interested in science, this guide explains concepts, discusses the string theory’s hypotheses and predictions, and presents the math in an approachable manner. It features in-depth examples and an easy-to-understand style so that readers can understand this controversial, cutting-edge theory.
