This book, Electronic Devices and Circuit Applications, is the first of four books of a larger work, Fundamentals of Electronics. It is comprised of four chapters describing the basic operation of each of the four fundamental building blocks of modern electronics: operational amplifiers, semiconductor diodes, bipolar junction transistors, and field effect transistors. Attention is focused on the reader obtaining a clear understanding of each of the devices when it is operated in equilibrium.
 
Ideas fundamental to the study of electronic circuits are also developed in the book at a basic level to lessen the possibility of misunderstandings at a higher level. The difference between linear and non-linear operation is explored through the use of a variety of circuit examples including amplifiers constructed with operational amplifiers as the fundamental component and elementary digital logic gates constructed with various transistor types.

  • Offers a comprehensive yet practical exploration of basic electrical and electronic concepts, hands-on applications, and troubleshooting.
  • Has enough equations to explain the concepts, plenty of diagrams, and lucid verbal explanations.
  • Contains a fairly large number of solved problems and practice exercises.
  • Written in a clear and accessible narration, focuses on fundamental principles and their applications to solving real circuit analysis problems.

  1. Operational Amplifiers and Applications
  2. Diode Characteristics and Circuits
  3. Bipolar Junction Transistor Characteristic
  4. Field Effect Transistor Characteristics

Thomas Schubert :- received BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Irvine (UCI). He was a member of the first engineering graduating class and the first triple-degree recipient in engineering at UCI. His doctoral work discussed the propagation of polarized light in anisotropic media. Dr. Schubert arrived at the University of San Diego in August, 1987 as one of the two founding faculty of its new Engineering Program. From 1997-2003, he led the Department as Chairman, a position that became Director of Engineering Programs during his leadership tenure. Prior to coming to USD, he was at the Space and Communications Division of Hughes Aircraft Company, the University of Portland, and Portland State University. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Oregon. In 2012, Dr. Schubert was awarded the Robert G. Quinn Award by the American Society of Engineering Education "in recognition of outstanding contributions in providing and promoting excellence in engineering experimentation and laboratory instruction."

Ernest Kim :- received his B.S.E.E. from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1977, an M.S.E.E. in 1980 and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1987 from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. His dissertation was on precision near-field exit radiation measurements from optical fibers. Dr. Kim worked as an Electrical Engineer for the University of Hawaii at the Naval Ocean Systems Center, Hawaii Labs at Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station after graduating with his B.S.E.E. Upon completing his M.S.E.E., he was an electrical engineer with the National Bureau of Standards in Boulder, Colorado designing hardware for precision fiber optic measurements. He then entered the commercial sector as a staff engineer with Burroughs Corporation in San Diego, California developing fiber optic LAN systems. He left Burroughs for Tacan/IPITEK Corporation as Manager of Electro-Optic Systems developing fiber optic CATV hardware and systems. In 1990 he joined the faculty of the University of San Diego. He remains an active consultant in radio frequency and analog circuit design, and teaches review courses for the engineering Fundamentals Examination. Dr. Kim is a member of the IEEE, ASEE, and CSPE. He is a Licensed Professional Electrical Engineer in California.
