This highly successful survey of the fundamental principles of modern electrical engineering offers an in-depth examination of four major topics: circuits, electronics, digital systems and electromagnetics. Advanced concepts such as resistive analysis, time-domain and frequency-domain analysis, sequential and combinational logic and elementary system principles, are discussed in detail. This updated edition includes a new chapter on the circuit analysis software SPICE, with a particular focus on the PC-version PSPICE. Numerous drill exercises illustrating concepts from the text have been added and 346 out of the 1182 end-of-chapter problems appear for the first time.Key Features:* The only fundamentals book to cover 'SPICE' (the circuits analysis software)* Covers most topics in greater depth than most introductory books* Provides maximum instructor and course flexibility with a modular, five-part organisation* Core textbook for first year undergraduatesSupplement:Solutions Manual: 0195111249Contents:I.

This book is completely focused on problem solving. Doesn't explain any of the concepts completely or describe any phenomenon precisely.. Some of the derivations are wrong and improperly explained... I am not very impressed by this book
