This book is primarily designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering, but can also be used for primer courses across other disciplines of engineering and related sciences. The book covers all the basic aspects of electronics engineering, from electronic materials to devices, and then to basic electronic circuits. The book can be used for freshman (first year) and sophomore (second year) courses in undergraduate engineering. It can also be used as a supplement or primer for more advanced courses in electronic circuit design. The book uses a simple narrative style, thus simplifying both classroom use and self study. Numerical values of dimensions of the devices, as well as of data in figures and graphs have been provided to give a real world feel to the device parameters. It includes a large number of numerical problems and solved examples, to enable students to practice. A laboratory manual is included as a supplement with the textbook material for practicals related to the coursework. The contents of this book will be useful also for students and enthusiasts interested in learning about basic electronics without the benefit of formal coursework.

This book describes the future of microscopically small medical devices and how to locate a lab to start conducting your own do-it-yourself microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) research in one of the many national, international, government, and other regional open use facilities, where you can quickly begin designing and fabricating devices for your applications. You will learn specific, tangible information on what MEMS are and how a device is fabricated, including what the main types of equipment are in these facilities. The book provides advice on working in a cleanroom, soft materials, collaboration, intellectual property and privacy issues, regulatory compliance, and how to navigate other issues that may arise. This book is primarily aimed at researchers and students who work at universities without MEMS facilities, and small companies who need access to MEMS resources.
This textbook provides comprehensive coverage for courses in the basics of design and implementation of digital filters. The book assumes only basic knowledge in digital signal processing and covers state-of-the-art methods for digital filter design and provides a simple route for the readers to design their own filters. The advanced mathematics that is required for the filter design is minimized by providing an extensive MATLAB toolbox with over 300 files. The book presents over 200 design examples with MATLAB code and over 300 problems to be solved by the reader. The students can design and modify the code for their use. The book and the design examples cover almost all known design methods of frequency-selective digital filters as well as some of the authors' own, unique techniques.
This book presents new methods of circuit design for guitar electronics, based directly upon U.S. Non-Provisional Patent Applications. By systematic construction of unique series-parallel circuit topologies, the author shows how many series-parallel circuits are possible, including non-matched single-coil pickups, humbucking pickups, and humbucking combinations of matched single-coil pickups. This allows designers to avoid unnecessary and confusing duplicate circuits in pickup switching systems. It shows how electromechanical switches cannot produce the maximum number of tones for more than 2 or 3 pickups. Thus the author discloses an efficient micro-controller and cross-point switch architecture to replace mechanical switches, and allow access to the maximum number of tones. The discussion continues, developing humbucking circuits for odd numbers of matched single-coil pickups, extendable to any odd or even number, greater than 1, using a simplified switching system with very simple rules. It abandons some tones in favor of producing all-humbucking and unique tones, no matter what the switching choice. The author discloses both mechanical and digital switching versions. Then, based on using humbucking basis vectors, the author discloses variable-gain circuits that duplicate all possible switched humbucking tone circuits, and produces all the continuous tone gradations in between. The presentation includes analog and digitally controlled systems. The object of all the disclosures: give the guitarist or pianist a system which allows going from bright to warm tones and back, without ever needing to know which pickups are used in what combination.

Fluid Power Circuits and Controls: Fundamentals and Applications, Second Edition, is designed for a first course in fluid power for undergraduate engineering students. After an introduction to the design and function of components, students apply what they've learned and consider how the component operating characteristics interact with the rest of the circuit. The Second Edition offers many new worked examples and additional exercises and problems in each chapter. Half of these new problems involve the basic analysis of specific elements, and the rest are design-oriented, emphasizing the analysis of system performance. The envisioned course does not require a controls course as a prerequisite; however, it does lay a foundation for understanding the extraordinary productivity and accuracy that can be achieved when control engineers and fluid power engineers work as a team on a fluid power design problem. A complete solutions manual is available for qualified adopting instructors.
This book describes for readers the entire, interconnected complex of theoretical and practical aspects of designing and organizing the production of various electronic devices, the general and main distinguishing feature of which is the high speed of processing and transmitting of digital signals. The authors discuss all the main stages of design - from the upper system level of the hierarchy (telecommunications system, 5G mobile communications) to the lower level of basic semiconductor elements, printed circuit boards. Since the developers of these devices in practice deal with distorted digital signals that are transmitted against a background of interference, the authors not only explain the physical nature of such effects, but also offer specific solutions as to how to avoid such parasitic effects, even at the design stage of high-speed devices.
This book is a unified exposition of the molecular theory that underlies lithographic imaging.
