Sedra and K. Fundamental developments in modern technology, particularly the increased emphasis on integrated circuits and the profusion of advances in digital electronics, require that engineers today be aptly equipped with knowledge of these concepts and techniques. In this edition, the authorspresent these concepts and techniques earlier on in the text and in greater detail than in previous editions. While the previous edition presented students with analog oriented concepts followed by digital, the fourth edition promotes learning these ideas side-by-side, as they often appear in thereal world.

Microelectronic Circuits, fifth edition, is intended as a text for the core courses in electronic circuits taught to majors in electrical and computer engineering. It should also prove useful to engineers and other professionals wishing to update their knowledge through self-study. As was the case with the first four editions, the objective of this book is to develop in the reader the ability to analyze and design electronic circuits, both analog and digital, discrete and integrated. While the application of integrated circuits is covered, emphasis is placed on transistor circuit design.

This is done because of our belief that even if the majority of those studying the book were not to pursue a career in IC design, knowledge of what is inside the IC package would enable intelligent and innovative application of such chips.

Furthermore, with the advances in VLSI technology and design methodology, IC design itself is becoming accessible to an increasing number of engineers. As a review, some linear circuits material is included here in appendixes: specifically, two-port network parameters in Appendix B; some useful network theorems in Appendix C; singletime- constant circuits in Appendix D; and s-domain analysis in Appendix E.

No prior knowledge of physical electronics is assumed. All required device physics is included, and Appendix A provides a brief description of IC fabrication. The book has been reorganized into three parts. Part I: Devices and Basic Circuits, composed of the first five chapters, provides a coherent and reasonably comprehensive single-semester introductory course in electronics.

Each chapter is organized so that the essential "must-cover" topics are placed first, and the more specialized material appears last. This allows considerable flexibility in teaching and learning from the book. The MOSFET chapter is placed first to reflect the fact that it is currently the most significant electronics device by a wide margin. However, if desired, the BJT can be covered first.

Also, the identical structure of the two chapters makes teaching and learning about the second device easier and faster. To make the first course comprehensive, both Chapters 4 and 5 include material on amplifier and digital-logic circuits. In addition, the frequency response of the basic common-source common-emitter amplifier is included. This is important for students who might not take a second course in electronics.

A new chapter on integrated-circuit IC amplifiers Chapter 6 is added. Typical parameter values of devices produced by modern submicron fabrication processes are given and utilized in the examples, exercises, and end-of-chapter problems.

The study of each amplifier configuration includes its frequency response. This should make the study of amplifier frequency response more interesting and somewhat easier. Here also, the examples, exercises, and problems have been expanded and updated to utilize parameter values representative of modern submicron technologies. To make room for new material, some of the topics that have become less current, such as JFETs and TTL, or have remained highly specialized, such as GaAs devices and circuits, have been removed from the book.

As a study aid and for easy reference, many summary tables have been added. The review exercises, examples, and end-of-chapter problems have been updated and their numbers and variety increased. At the same time, it constitutes a complete package for a first course on the subject. Besides silicon diodes and transistors, the basic electronic devices, the op amp is studied in Part I. Although not an electronic device in the most fundamental sense, the op amp is commercially available as an integrated circuit IC package and has well-defined terminal characteristics.

We should mention, however, that the study of op amps can be delayed to a later point, and Chapter 2 can b e skipped with no loss of continuity. The most basic silicon device is the diode. In addition to learning about diodes and a sample of their applications, Chapter 3 also introduces the general topic of device modeling for the purpose of circuit analysis and design. Also, Section 3. This subject is then continued in Section 4.

Taken together, these three sections provide a physical background sufficient for the study of electronic circuits at the level presented in this book.

These two chapters have been written to be completely independent of one another and thus can be studied in either desired order. Furthermore, the two chapters have the same structure, making it easier and faster to study the second device, as well as to draw comparisons between the two device types.

Chapter 1 provides both an introduction to the study of electronics and a number of important concepts for the study of amplifiers Sections 1. Each of the five chapters concludes with a section on the use of SPICE simulation in circuit analysis and design. Finally, note that as in most of the chapters of this book, the must-know material is placed near the beginning of a chapter while the good-to-know topics are placed in the latter part of the chapter.

Some of this latter material can therefore be skipped in a first course and covered at a later time, when needed.
