Richard Jaeger and Travis Blalock present a balanced coverage of analog and digital circuits; students will develop a comprehensive understanding of the basic techniques of modern electronic circuit design, analog and digital, discrete and integrated.
A broad spectrum of topics are included in Microelectronic Circuit Design which gives the professor the option to easily select and customize the material to satisfy a two-semester or three-quarter sequence in electronics. Jaeger/Blalock emphasizes design through the use of design examples and design notes. Excellent pedagogical elements include chapter opening vignettes, chapter objectives, “Electronics in Action” boxes, a problem-solving methodology, and "Design Note” boxes.
The use of the well-defined problem-solving methodology presented in this text can significantly enhance an engineer’s ability to understand the issues related to design. The design examples assist in building and understanding the design process.
LearnSmart™ an intelligent learning system that uses a series of probing questions to pinpoint each student’s knowledge gaps. LearnSmart strengthens student understanding and retention of your course’s fundamental concepts; effectively preparing your students for class so you can review less and teach more. The LearnSmart methodology is simple: determine the concepts students don’t know or understand, and then teach those concepts using personalized plans designed for each student’s success.
SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading experience available for the higher education market. Powered by an intelligent diagnostic and adaptive engine, SmartBook facilitates the reading process by identifying what content a student knows and doesn’t know through adaptive assessments. As the student reads, the reading material constantly adapts to ensure the student is focused on the content he or she needs the most to close any knowledge gaps.
Several new Design Note boxes: The mathematical model for the NMOS transistor and the PMOS transistor; The Q-Point values for the MOS transistor using the four-resistor bias network.
Several new Electronics in Action boxes: High Performance CMOS technologies; Diode Rectifier as an AM Demodulation; A Second Look at Noise Margins (graphical flip-flop approach); Offset Voltage, Bias Current and CMPR Measurement; Sample-and-Hold Circuits, Voltage Regulator with Series Pass Transistor; Noise Factor, Noise Figure and Minimum Detectable Signal; Series-Parallel and Parallel-Series Network Transformations; and Passive Diode Mixers.
Numerous new End of Chapter problems have been added to each chapter.
SPICE support on the web now includes examples in NI Multisim™ software in addition to PSPICE®.
Emphasis on design. "Design Examples" and "Design Notes" highlight real-world design principles encouraging students to concentrate on design.
Problem-solving methodology. In each chapter the authors approach problem solving in a consistent manner, showing students how to consider a problem, break it down, and find an effective, efficient solution.
