Thoroughly revised and updated, this highly successful textbook guides students through the analysis and design of transistor circuits. It covers a wide range of circuitry, both linear and switching.

Transistor Circuit Techniques: Discrete and Integrated provides students with an overview of fundamental qualitative circuit operation, followed by an examination of analysis and design procedure. It incorporates worked problems and design examples to illustrate the concepts. This third edition includes two additional chapters on power amplifiers and power supplies, which further develop many of the circuit design techniques introduced in earlier chapters.

Part of the Tutorial Guides in Electronic Engineering series, this book is intended for first and second year undergraduate courses. A complete text on its own, it offers the added advantage of being cross-referenced to other titles in the series. It is an ideal textbook for both students and instructors.
