Book Description

December 12, 2011 1842657038 978-1842657034 2
ELECTRONICS is written as a monolog between teacher and student in an attempt to make the language as simple as possible. The various diagrams and oscilloscope plots will help students correlate the theory they learn in the class room with observations they make in their lab experiments. Thumb rules of circuital designing have been included where-ever possible and various laws of physics behind various devices have been discussed. The chapters in the book can be divided into sections explaining modeling, test equipments and circuital elements which are building blocks of a power supply. Designed as a Textbook for undergraduate students of electronics in physics and engineering, the book hopes to demystify electronics as a subject and encourage beginners to take the next step in circuital designing. Preface to the Second Edition / Preface to the First Edition / Kirchoff s Theorems / Theorems / The Oscilloscope / Transformers / Diode / Filters / Regulation / Transistor / Transistor Biasing / Transistor Models / Frequency Response / Multistage Transistor Amplifiers / Feedback Circuits / Field Effect and Uni-Junction Transistors / Oscillators / Power Amplifiers / Tuned Amplifiers / The Thyristor / Integrated Circuits / Further Reading / Index.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent coverage of transistor amplifiers April 12, 2012
I like this book quite a bit. Unlike most books for 1 semester electronics - which try and broadly survey electronics for new students - Arun focuses on diodes, transistors and providing a comprehensive analysis of amplifiers and how to build them. He meshes theory with a practical understanding of various rules-of-thumb.

At almost 500 pages he has enough space to thoroughly cover most everything transistor-amplifier related.

This book would work well as a companion to a general-purpose university electronics textbook. Books like Faissler, Barnaal, Diefenderfer, Simpson, Fortney, Brophy and, of course, Horowitz & Hill.

Arun assumes you know simple DC and AC circuits and how to use a multimeter.

The index is quite poor: it's far too short and incomplete. There are no solutions or answers to any of the problems, either. I hate this. If I shelled out the cash for a textbook I should at least be able to check my answers. That's why I'm docking this book 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book February 14, 2006
By das
This is a very useful book for graduate and under-graduate science and engineering students. Specially for those who are afraid of electronics.
