Book Description

This book gives clear explanations of the very technical aspects of electronics engineering from basic classical device formulations to the use of nanotechnology to develop efficient quantum electronic systems. As well as being up-to-date, this book provides a broader range of topics than found in many other electronics’ books. The book is written in a clear, accessible style and covers topics in a comprehensive manner.

The book’s approach is strongly application-based with key mathematical techniques introduced, helpful examples used to illustrate the design procedures, and case studies provided where appropriate. By including the fundamentals as well as more advanced techniques, the author has produced an up-to-date reference that meets the requirements of electronics and communications students and professional engineers.

Electronics from classical to quantum: discusses formulation and classification of integrated circuits....develops hierarchical structure of functional logic blocks to build more complex digital logic circuits....outlines the structure of transistors (bipolar, JFET, MOSFET or MOS, CMOS), their processing techniques, their arrangement forming logic gates and digital circuits, optimal pass transistor stages of buffered chain, sources and types of noise, and performance of designed circuits under noisy conditions…explains data conversion processes, choice of the converter types, and inherent errors.....describes electronic properties of nanomaterials, the crystallites size reduction effect, and the principles of nanoscale structure fabrication…outlines the principles of quantum electronics leading to the development of lasers, masers, reversible quantum gates and circuits and applications of quantum cells, and fabrication methods including self-assembly (quantum-dot cellular automata) and tunnelling (superconducting circuits), and describes quantum error-correction techniques....problems are provided at the end of each chapter to challenge the reader’s understanding.
