The primary goal of this text is to better prepare electronics students for their first job, supplying them with the practical tools that will enhance their ability to perform. The text was developed using the author's industry and teaching experience. Key Features and Benefits: The text covers a six-step process for solving engineering problems that provides a logical sequence for students to follow while completing electronics projects. Design requirements and methods of printed circuit board design and component selection are presented. Concurrent engineering and good project management techniques are emphasized throughout the text. Electrical noise and ambient temperature effects on electronic circuits are explored in detail. All of these topics are discussed as an actual design project is completed as an ongoing example throughout the text.Stadtmiller, D.
