Microelectronic Circuit Design is known for being a technically excellent text. The new edition has been revised to make the material more motivating and accessible to students. A new co-author, Travis Blalock, has joined the author team to assist in providing a student-friendly approach.
A pedagogical framework has been added that includes chapter opening vignettes, chapter objectives, “Electronics in Action” boxes, a problem solving methodology, and “design note” boxes.
The number of examples, including new design examples, has been increased, giving students more opportunity to see problems worked out. Additionally, some of the less fundamental mathematical material has been moved to the website.
