This brief alternative to traditionally sequenced texts presents the fundamental principles of modern electronic circuit design. It features all the breadth of coverage you would find in a larger text, but at a depth that makes it easy to cover in one semester.
The authors focus on modern, integrated circuit design and concentrate on two devices that are used in practice today: the metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) and the bipolar junction transistor (BJT). Throughout, the text emphasizes a practical, applied approach with a strong emphasis on design. A second volume is available that includes advanced topics.
