A First Lab in Circuits and Electronics

Written by an award-winning educator and researcher, the sixteen experiments in this book have been extensively class-tested and fine-tuned. This lab manual, like no other, provides an exciting, active exploration of concepts and measurements and encourages students to tinker, experiment, and become creative on their own. This benefits their further study and subsequent professional work. The manual includes self-contained background for all electronics experiments, so that the lab can be run concurrently with any circuits or electronics course, at any level. It uses circuits in real applications which students can relate to, in order to motivate them and convince them that what they learn is for real. As a result, the material is not only made interesting, but helps motivate further study in circuits, electronics, communications and semiconductor devices.

An Introduction to Electronics

An Introduction to Electronics covers the syllabus of B.Sc. Electronics, and is divided into twelve chapters viz. circuit analysis (network analysis and network theorems) semiconductors and semiconductor diodes, clippers and clampers, two terminal devices (rectifiers Zener, varactor and tunnel diodes, photodiode, LED and solar cell). Bipolar Junction Transistors (CE, CB, and CC configurations), Amplifiers two port networks, h-parameters and CE, CB, CC and RC coupled amplifiers, feedback in amplifiers, types of feedback sinusoidal oscillators (Colpitt, Hartley phase-shift and Wien bridge oscillators). Multivibrators three terminal devices (UJT, JFET, common source, common gate and common drain amplifiers, depletion and enhancement MOSFETs), Modulation and demodulation (AM, FM phase modulation, PAM, PWM, PPM and PCM) square law and linear diode detectors, Noise, shot noise, partition noise, flicker noise, transit time noise, thermal noise, white noise, excess resistor noise, noise in BJT and FET, and noise figure.
