The primary goal of this book is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the basic techniques of modern electronic circuit design: analog and digital, discrete and integrated. With its balanced treatment of digital and analog electronics, this book is one of the first written specifically to meet the demands for increased coverage of digital electronics. The book is divided into three parts. Part I is an introduction to electronics and solid-state devices. Part II covers digital electronics, emphasizing the subject commensurate with its importance in modern circuit design. Part III deals with traditional analog circuits and offers an innovative approach that stresses the design tradeoffs between the FET and the BJT.
