About the Book

The present book is meant for the first-year engineering curricula of various universities in India. It describes the basic theories of electron
dynamics, semiconductor physics, semiconductor diodes, bipolar junction transistors, field-effect (junction, MOS and CMOS) transistors, voltage
and power amplifiers, oscillators, power electronic devices (SCR and UJT), and operational amplifiers. It further describes radio, mobile, fiber-
optic, satellite and microwave communication systems. It also deals with the basic theories of radar, electronic instrumentation, Boolean algebra
and logic functions. The book has more than 250 diagrams to illustrate the theories described and numerous worked examples.

Salient Features
Salient Features:

 Simple, to-the point treatment of all major concepts in basic electronics (diodes, transistors, rectifiers, amplifiers, communication systems,
instruments, number system, Boolean algebra and digital logic) is the hallmark feature of the book.
 The chapters are profusely illustrated with line diagrams and tables for a better grip on the text.
