Used collectively, PSPICE and MATLAB® are unsurpassed for circuit modeling and data analysis. PSPICE can perform DC, AC, transient, Fourier, temperature, and Monte Carlo analysis of electronic circuits with device models and subsystem subcircuits. MATLAB can then carry out calculations of device parameters, curve fitting, numerical integration, numerical differentiation, statistical analysis, and two- and three-dimensional plots. PSPICE and MATLAB® for Electronics: An Integrated Approach, Second Edition illustrates how to use the strong features of PSPICE and the powerful functions of MATLAB for electronic circuit analysis. After introducing the basic commands and advanced features of PSPICE as well as ORCAD schematics, the author discusses MATLAB fundamentals and functions. He then describes applications of PSPICE and MATLAB for problem solving. Applications covered include diodes, operational amplifiers, and transistor circuits. New to the Second Edition Updated MATLAB topics Schematic capture and text-based PSPICE netlists in several chapters New chapter on PSPICE simulation using the ORCAD schematic capture program New examples and problems, along with a revised bibliography in each chapter This second edition continues to provide an introduction to PSPICE and a simple, hands-on overview of MATLAB.

ELECTROMAGNETICS FOR A WIRELESS WORLD The revolution in wireless communications calls for a new focus in the electrical engineering curriculum. Stuart M. Wentworth pioneers this new approach with his new Applied Electromagnetics: Early Transmission Lines Approach. Incorporating the popular MATLAB program throughout, this book starts you off with a rock-solid foundation on such basics as static electric and magnetic fields, dynamic fields, and plane waves. It then prepares you for the new wireless world with a concerted focus on practical applications for wireless systems, transmission lines, waveguides (including optical fiber), antennas, and microwave systems. Numerous worked out examples, drill problems, and end-of-chapter problems will clarify your understanding of electromagnetics, and the many MATLAB examples and problems will ensure your mastery of the information. Intelligently designed and feature-packed, Wentworth's Applied Electromagnetics offers a rare marriage of detailed theoretical grounding and hands-on experience in harmony with today's professional practice.

ABOUT THE PHOTO Passive RFID systems, consisting of readers and tags, are expected to replace barcodes as the primary means of identification, inventory, and billing of everyday items. The tags typically consist of an RFID chip placed on a flexible film containing a planar antenna. The antenna captures radiation from the reader's signal to power the tag electronics, which then responds to the reader's query. The PENI Tag (Product Emitting Numbering Identification Tag) shown, developed by the University of Pittsburgh in a team led by Professor Marlin H. Mickle, integrates the antenna with the rest of the tag electronics. RFID systems involve many electromagnetics concepts, including antennas, radiation, transmission lines, and microwave circuit components. (Photo courtesy of Marlin H. Mickle)

With the advance of semiconductors and ubiquitous computing, the use of system-on-a-chip (SoC) has become an essential technique to reduce product cost. With this progress and continuous reduction of feature sizes, and the development of very large-scale integration (VLSI) circuits, addressing the harder problems requires fundamental understanding of circuit and layout design issues. Furthermore, engineers can often develop their physical intuition to estimate the behavior of circuits rapidly without relying predominantly on computer-aided design (CAD) tools. Introduction to VLSI Systems: A Logic, Circuit, and System Perspective addresses the need for teaching such a topic in terms of a logic, circuit, and system design perspective. To achieve the above-mentioned goals, this classroom-tested book focuses on: Implementing a digital system as a full-custom integrated circuit Switch logic design and useful paradigms that may apply to various static and dynamic logic families The fabrication and layout designs of complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) VLSI Important issues of modern CMOS processes, including deep submicron devices, circuit optimization, interconnect modeling and optimization, signal integrity, power integrity, clocking and timing, power dissipation, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) Introduction to VLSI Systems builds an understanding of integrated circuits from the bottom up, paying much attention to logic circuit, layout, and system designs. Armed with these tools, readers can not only comprehensively understand the features and limitations of modern VLSI technologies, but also have enough background to adapt to this ever-changing field.

While basic circuits may be easy to understand, creating a circuit requires a different way of thinking. The purpose of this book is to show how it's done. Being creative, instead of just following instructions, is part of the Maker ethic. This should include designing circuits to do what you want. The hands-on projects in this book progress from simple to complex, breaking circuits into modules to make them easier to understand. It is suitable for adult learners, as well as for teens ages 12 and up. (Younger readers can work through it with adult assistance.) Unique pictorial diagrams included in the book show circuits as they actually appear on a breadboard (not just schematics). Teaches the fundamentals of electronic circuits Starts with basics and builds to more sophisticated designs Explains how to read and draw circuit diagrams Encourages experimentation and hands-on building Includes cartoons and full-color photographs and line drawings One of the relatively few entry-level books on circuit design Shifts the focus away from explaining components and onto showing how to link them together Make: Electronics--Creating Circuits is a standalone book that doesn't require familiarity with Charles Platt's other popular Make: Electronics books.

An accessible introduction to computer systems and architecture Anyone aspiring to more advanced studies in computer-related fields must gain an understanding of the two parallel aspects of the modern digital computer: programming methodology and the underlying machine architecture. The uniquely integrated approach of Computer Architecture and Organization connects the programmer's view of a computer system with the associated hardware and peripheral devices, providing a thorough, three-dimensional view of what goes on inside the machine. Covering all the major topics normally found in a first course in computer architecture, the text focuses on the essentials including the instruction set architecture (ISA), network-related issues, and programming methodology. Using "real world" case studies to put the information into perspective, the chapters examine: * Data representation * Arithmetic * The instruction set architecture * Datapath and Control * Languages and the machine * Memory * Buses and peripherals * Networking and communication * Advanced computer architecture A valuable feature of this book is the use of ARC, a subset of the SPARC processor, for an instruction set architecture. A platform-independent ARCTools suite, containing an assembler and simulator for the ARC ISA, that supports the examples used in the book is available. Better yet, the content is supplemented by online problem sets available through WileyPlus. Balanced and thoughtfully designed for use as either a classroom text or self-study guide, Computer Architecture and Organization: An Integrated Approach will put you solidly on track for advancing to higher levels in computer-related disciplines.
