This comprehensive revision helps non-electrical engineering majors--the future users, rather than the designers of electrical devices, systems and machines-- gain a conceptual understanding of electrical engineering. Early coverage of systems and an emphasis on an IC (integrated circuits) 'building block' approach motivates non-majors. The text features integration of analog and digital technology with cutting-edge coverage of op-amps, feedback and analog systems. Chapter-end applications capture student interest by relating material to contemporary topics such as automobile suspension systems, high-fidelity audio and hand-held computers.Key Features:* Provides examples from everyday life, rather than from specific EE applications--for example 'Starting Your Volkswagen' or 'Automobile Suspension System' (an application of phasor analysis)* Features new and completely up-to-date material on SPICE, a new chapter on inductors and capacitors and expanded and revised chapters on analog systemsSupplement:Instructor's Manual: 003096850XContents:Introduction and overviewI.
