CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Electronic Circuits is a unique combination of a comprehensive reference text
and a practical electronics handbook in one volume.
Mike Tooley provides all the essential information required to get to grips
with the fundamentals of electronics, detailing the underpinning knowledge
necessary to appreciate the operation of a wide range of electronic circuits,
including amplifiers, logic circuits, power supplies and oscillators. The third
edition now offers an even more extensive range of topics, with extended
coverage of practical areas such as circuit construction and fault finding, and
new topics including circuit simulation, electronic CAD and a brand new chapter
devoted to the PIC microcontroller.
A new companion website at http://www.key2electronics.com offers the reader a
set of spreadsheet design tools that can be used to simplify circuit
calculations, as well as circuit models and templates that will enable virtual
simulation of circuits in the book. These are accompanied by on-line self-test
MCQs per chapter with automatic marking, to enable students to continually
monitor their own progress and understanding. A bank of on-line questions for
lecturers to set as assignments is also available on
The book's content is matched to the latest pre-degree level courses (from
Level 2 up to, and including, Foundation Degree and HND), making this an
invaluable reference text for all study levels, and its broad coverage is
combined with practical case studies, based in real-world engineering contexts
throughout the text.
The unique combination of a comprehensive reference text, incorporating a
primary focus on practical application, ensures this text will prove a vital
guide for students and also for industry-based engineers, who are either new to
the field of electronics, or who wish to refresh their knowledge. Yet unlike
general electronics reference texts available, Electronic Circuits offers this
essential information at an affordable price.
