Analog Circuit Techniques

With Digital Interfacing


  • T. H. Wilmshurst, Formerly of the Department of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK

This book uses an analytical approach, backed up with numerous experimental exercises and worked examples. It is designed to deliver the core content of a three year degree course in a single volume, which makes it an ideal core adoption text, and an essential reference text for a wide range of studentsA comprehensive analog electronics text for first degrees and conversion coursesDr Wilmshurst has drawn on his experience running an MSc conversion and other courses to produce this single volume text which covers all the analog electronics needed in a wide range of higher education programmes: first degrees in electronic engineering, experimental science courses, MSc electronics and electronics units for HNDs.The chapter on audio amplifiers includes an invaluable example of the application of SPICE simulation.
