Description

Most introductory textbooks in electronics focus on the theory while leaving the practical aspects to be covered in laboratory courses. However, the sooner such matters are introduced, the better able students will be to include such important concerns as parasitic effects and reliability at the very earliest stages of design. This philosophy has kept Electronic Components and Technology thriving for two decades, and this completely updated third edition continues the approach with a more international outlook.

Not only does this textbook introduce the properties, behavior, fabrication, and use of electronic components, it also helps students grasp and apply sound engineering practice by incorporating in-depth discussions on topics such as safety and reliability. The author employs a holistic treatment that clearly demonstrates how electronic components and subsystems work together, reinforcing the concepts with numerous examples, case studies, problems, illustrations, and objectives. This edition was updated to reflect advances and changes to industrial practice, including packaging technologies, digital oscilloscopes, lead-free solders, and new battery technologies. Additionally, the text's scope now extends to include terminology and standards used worldwide.

Including coverage of topics often ignored in other textbooks on the subject, Electronic Components and Technology, Third Edition encourages students to be better, more thoughtful designers and prepares them with current industrial practices.
