## Fundamentals of Modern Electronics [PDF]

Fundamental of Modern Electronics is a modern, thorough treatment of the topics traditionally covered during a first semester course in electronic device theory and applications. The minimum preparation for students beginning their study of this material is a course in dc circuit analysis. Therefore, students who begin their study without having completed a course in ac circuit analysis should be taking that course as a corequisite. Basic calculus is used as needed for the development of theoretical principles, such as defining the small signals models for a MOSFET or BJT.

Principal considerations in selecting topics for this edition were the significance of each topic in modern industrial applications and the impact that they are likely to have on emerging technologies. Consequently, integrated-circuit applications are presented in great detail, including coverage of analog and digital transistor building blocks, and semiconductor theory and applications.
