Designed specifically for undergraduate students of Electronics and Electrical Engineering and its related disciplines, this book offers an excellent coverage of all essential topics and provides a solid foundation for analysing electronic circuits. It covers the course named Electronic Devices and Circuits of various universities. The book will also be useful to diploma students, AMIE students, and those pursuing courses in B.Sc. (Electronics) and M.Sc. (Physics).
The students are thoroughly introduced to the full spectrum of fundamental topics beginning with the theory of semiconductors and p-n junction behaviour. The devices treated include diodes, transistors—BJTs, JFETs and MOSFETs—and thyristors. The circuitry covered comprises small signal (ac), power amplifiers, oscillators, and operational amplifiers including many important applications of those versatile devices. A separate chapter on IC fabrication technology is provided to give an idea of the technologies being used in this area.
There are a variety of solved examples and applications for conceptual understanding. Problems at the end of each chapter are provided to test, reinforce and enhance learning.
