Now in a new edition, this market-leading textbook continues its standard of excellence and innovation built on the solid pedagogical foundation that instructors expect from Adel Sedra and Kenneth C. Smith. All material in the fifth edition is thoroughly updated to reflect changes in technology-CMOS technology in particular. These technological changes have shaped the book's organization and topical coverage, making it the most current resource available for teaching tomorrow's engineers how to analyze and design electronic circuits.
Highlights of the Fifth Edition
BLStreamlined Organizational Structure: The "must-cover" topics are placed first in each chapter; the more specialized material appears last. The first five chapters, Part I, are organized to form a coherent single-semester introductory course. Similarly, the next five chapters, Part II, present a body of material for a second one-semester course. The final four chapters, Part III, contain significant topics that can be used as enhancements or substitutes for some of the material in earlier chapters as well as resources for project or thesis work.
BLMOSFETs and BJTs: Chapter 4 (MOSFETs) and Chapter 5 (BJTs) are completely rewritten. The MOSFET coverage is placed first but the two devices can be covered in any desired order.
BLIC MOS and Bipolar Amplifiers: Chapter 6 (Single-Stage Integrated-Circuit Amplifiers) and Chapter 7 (Differential and Multistage Amplifiers) are completely rewritten to introduce IC MOS and bipolar amplifiers in an accessible, systematic way.
BLAmplifier Frequency Response: Amplifier frequency response is now presented where needed (a "just-in-time" approach). This includes brief coverage of the frequency responses of the common source and common emitter amplifiers in Chapters 4 and 5, respectively.
Enhanced Student Support
BLA new CD-packaged with every copy of the text-includes a free student version of PSpiceRG and the files for all SPICE analysis and design examples.
BLRevised summary sections and many more summary tables are presented.
BLNumerous new and varied review exercises and end-of-chapter problems are provided in addition to more SPICE examples with schematic captures.
BLKC's Problems and Solutions for Microelectronic Circuits, 5/e, by Kenneth C. Smith (KC), offers hundreds of additional problems created by the author and solved in detail for extra student practice and review. These problems focus on the design and problem-solving skills needed by every student taking this course. (0-19-517104-7)
BLLaboratory Explorations for Microelectronic Circuits, 5/e, by Kenneth C. Smith (KC), provides laboratory exercises that test students' fundamental knowledge. Employing a learn-by-doing approach and emphasizing the use of computational tools, it allows students to explore real-world engineering. (0-19-517105-5)
BLAn accompanying website (http://www.sedrasmith.org) features:
--Links to industry and academic sites of related interest
--A sample chapter available for download (Chapter 5. Bipolar Junction Transistors)
Enhanced Instructor Support
BLAn Instructor's Manual with Transparency Masters contains solutions to all exercises and end-of-chapter problems plus hard copy masters of transparency acetates. (0-19-517268-X)
