This book offers an understanding of electronic devices and circuits, and how they operate from a technician's perspective. Full of drawings, examples and lab experiments, this text offers the student hands-on experience in preparing to become an electronics technician. Basic discrete components make up 35% of the content of the text, with the balance dedicated to integrated circuits and other topics.
This ninth edition was introduced to bring the material up-to-date and to
render all of the diagrams to the same standard. Some of the information
from previous editions has been left out; either because it was obsolete
or because it is not relevant to modern electronics. Most students are
taught discrete component circuit analysis and design with silicon npn
transistors as the main active devices. Although a flexibility of approach
is important (i.e.
Have you ever wondered how electronic products are created? Do you have an idea for a new electronic gadget
but no way of testing the feasibility of the device? Have you accumulated a junk box of electronic parts and
now wonder what to build with them? Well, this book will answer all your questions about discovering cool
and innovative applications for electronic gadgets using the Arduino. The book makes use of the Arduino
plus discrete, integrated circuit components and solderless breadboards. Multisim software is used for circuit
simulation and design equations....
Mastering the craft of the PC Technician requires you to learn a lot of details about a zillion
things. Even the most basic PC contains hundreds of discrete hardware components, each with
its own set of characteristics, shapes, sizes, colors, connections, etc. By the end of this book, you
will be able to discuss all of these components in detail.
In order to understand the details, you often need to understand the big picture first. "The Visible
PC" should enable you to recognize the main components of the CPU and to understand their
