This is a fundamental book on analogue circuitry for students of electrical and electronic engineering. Analogue circuits are used in various fields, such as microcomputer interaction and computer-aided design (CAD). Topics covered include transistor circuit techniques and amplifiers, operational amplifiers, oscillators, phase locked loops, modulation, data acquisition and distribution, and computer-aided circuit design. Basic electronics have been omitted so that appropriate emphasis can be given to the design of the most popular and useful circuits, and the author concentrates on the practical details and applications of the material he covers. In addition, each chapter also contains a significant number of worked examples and several carefully chosen problems at various levels of difficulty.
