SUPERCHARGE your understanding of ELECTRONICS

Learn electronics without getting your wires crossed! Electronics Demystified, Second Edition teaches you fundamental concepts and applications step by step.

This practical guide begins by covering voltage, current, resistance, impedance, admittance, and power supplies. The book goes on to discuss semiconductor diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, and signal amplifiers and oscillators. Wireless electronics is then addressed, including radio-frequency transmitters and receivers, telecommunications, and antennas. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key topics.

It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:

  • Ohm's law
  • Current and voltage in RL and RC circuits
  • Oscillation and amplification
  • Bipolar and field-effect transistors
  • Radio-wave propagation
  • Receiver and transmitter design
  • Communications satellites and antennas

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electronics Demystified, Second Edition helps you master this essential subject.
