For courses in Digital Fundamentals, Digital Logic, Basic Digital Circuits, and Digital Techlogy. Providing clear and complete coverage of fundamental plus state-of-the-art topics The Science of Electronics contains excellent pedagogical features. The approach is to present the essential elements of digital techlogy in a very clear and simple format. Concepts are well illustrated by many worked-out examples and figures. In addition to fundamental topics, advanced areas of digital techlogy are also introduced. The relationship of techlogy to science is emphasized. Science Highlights provide a look at scientific advances in an area that is closely related to the coverage in that chapter. Safety Notes, which appear in the margins throughout the text, give students valuable hints and information concerning safety issues when working with electrical systems. On the Job tips provide students with excellent information and material regarding their future careers. Computer Simulation and Troubleshooting Practice problems allow students to actually view circuit operations or find faults in a given circuit.
