Summary and Info
This entertaining and readable book provides a solid, comprehensive introduction to contemporary electronics. It's not a "how-to-do" electronics book, but rather an in-depth explanation of how today's integrated circuits work, how they are designed and manufactured, and how they are put together into powerful and sophisticated electronic systems. In addition to the technical details, it's packed with practical information of interest and use to engineers and support personnel in the electronics industry. It even tells how to pronounce the alphabet soup of acronyms that runs rampant in the industry.CONTENTS:Section 1: FundamentalsChapter 1Analog versus DigitalChapter 2Atoms, Molecules, and CrystalsChapter 3Conductors, Insulators, and Other StuffChapter 4Semiconductors (Diodes and Transistors)Chapter 5Primitive Logic FunctionsChapter 6Using Transistors to Build Logic GatesChapter 7Alternative Numbering SystemsChapter 8Binary ArithmeticChapter 9Boolean AlgebraChapter 10Karnaugh MapsChapter 11Slightly More Complex FunctionsChapter 12State MachinesChapter 13Analog-to-Digital and Vice VersaSection 2: Components and ProcessesChapter 14Integrated Circuits (ICs)Chapter 15Memory ICsChapter 16Programmable ICsChapter 17Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs)Chapter 18Circuit BoardsChapter 19HybridsChapter 20System-in-Package (Sip) and FriendsChapter 21Alternative and Future TechnologiesSection 3: Design Tools and StuffChapter 22General Concepts Chapter 23Design and Verification Tools Appendix AAssertion-Level LogicAppendix BPositive Logic versus Negative LogicAppendix CReed-M??ller LogicAppendix DGray CodesAppendix ELinear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSRs)Appendix FPass-Transistor LogicAppendix GMore on SemiconductorsAppendix HRounding Algorithms 101Appendix IPass-Transistor LogicAppendix JAn Interesting ConundrumAbbreviations and AcronymsGlossaryIndex *Written in conversational, fun style that has generated a strong following for the author and sales of over 14,000 copies for the first two editions *The Third Edition is even bigger and better, with lots of new material, illustrations, and an expanded glossary *Ideal for training incoming engineers and technicians, and for people in marketing or other related fields or anyone else who needs to familiarize themselves with electronics terms and technology
