Grob’s Basic Electronics is written for the beginning student pursuing a technical degree in Electronics Technology. In covering the fundamentals of electricity and electronics, this text focuses on essential topics for the technician, and the all-important development of testing and troubleshooting skills. It is a thoroughly accessible introduction to basic DC and AC circuits and electronic devices.
This highly practical approach combines clear, carefully-laid-out explanations of key topics with good, worked-out examples and problems to solve. Self-Test questions that follow each section reinforce the material just completed, and new Good to Know margin features provide problem-solving tips. The focus on absolutely essential knowledge for technicians and on real-world applications makes it ideal for today’s technology students.
The author has brought even more focus to simulation with this new edition. The free student CD contains the files needed to work the MultiSim activities found in each chapter. The appendix contains a MultiSim Primer, which outlines the basic use of the software. The Experiments Manual and accompanying Student CD by Pugh and Ponick is set up so that you have the option for nearly every experiment to be worked in simulation form with MultiSim, or as a regular hands-on lab.
