• A central emphasis that electronics is hands-on; that the objective is to build something; and that no black-boxes should be left unopened.
• A focus on discrete components so that students can build their understanding of more complex integrated devices and their specifications.
• Student friendly writing style
• Lab Projects section at the end of most chapters which contain many interesting circuits that have been proven to work well for instruction.
• Accompanying Lab Manual as well as an online component that allows for regular updates to contemporary equipment.
