Rizzoni provides a solid overview of the electrical engineering discipline that is especially geared toward the many non-electrical engineering students who take this course. The hallmark feature of the text is its liberal use of practical applications to illustrate important principles. The applications come from every field of engineering and feature exciting technologies such as Ohio State?s world-record setting electric car. The appeal to non-EE?s is further heightened by such special features as the book?s Focus on Measurement sections, Focus on Methodology sections, and Make the Connection sidebars.

New Features

  • Hallmark Feature--- Use of practical, interesting applications from all areas of engineering to illustrate principles
  • What's New--- chapter 2 includes a new section on controls; chapter 10 has been reorganized and now includes new information on current sources; chapter 11 has been reworked to include new examples and an explanation of FETs that is absolutely simple and intuitive for students; chapter 12 includes a new section on push-pull amplifiers; and chapter 13 includes new material on the half-adder.
  • A new chapter on the increasingly important area of digital communications complements the revised chapter on analog communication systems.
  • Rizzoni's experience as an electrical engineer teaching in a mechanical engineering department makes him the ideal author for an EE book for non majors. Through the use of a wide variety of applications and interesting problems, Rizzoni stimulates and motivates the non-majors audience.

Key Features

  • Focus on Methodology boxes throughout the text summarize important methods and procedures for the solution of common problems and assist the student in developing a methodical approach to problem solving.
  • Focus on Measurements boxes emphasize the great relevance of electrical engineering to the science and practice of measurements.
  • Make the Connection sidebars present analogies to students to help them see the connection of electrical engineering concepts to other engineering disciplines.
  • Check Your Understanding exercises follow each example in the text.
  • An Online Learning Center can be found at www.mhhe.com/rizzoni. This site contains resources for students and instructors. It includes such things as password-protected solutions for instructors, data sheets, web links, and more. Also, a section called Find it on the Web has been added throughout. These sections provide web links to global companies that manufacture the devices mentioned in the text. Students will be able to quickly look up manufacturer's data sheets and other useful information for use in design problems. This material will be revised and updated.
