Analog Electronic Circuits A Simplified Approach
About this eBook
Preface This book is the fruit of my rich experience of teaching the subject Analog Electronics nearly for a span of 18 years. The various concepts of the subject are arranged logically and explained in a simple reader friendly language for proper understanding of the subject. A large number of problems with their step by step solution are provided for every concept. Illustrative examples are discussed to emphasize on conceptual clarity thereby presenting typical applications. This book takes you from simple diode circuits through the analysis and design of a variety of transistor amplifiers. Analysis and design of practical feedback amplifiers and various oscillator circuits have also been covered. This book concludes with FET amplifiers wherein various FET configurations, their analysis and design have been discussed. This book provides a simplified and systematic approach to difficult theoretical concepts in Analog Electronics. It can serve as an excellent reference material for design engineers. Those of you who enjoyed reading our previous book entitled Electronic Circuits would certainly enjoy this book too. Despite the delight taken by many reviewers in finding mistakes a few typo errors have managed to slip through the sieve. This suggests that more await discovery by you. I suppose that is what second editions are for. U. B. MAHADEVASWAMY
