Problems and Explorations in Microelectronics with NI myDAQ and Multisim

For faculty wishing to incorporate portable instrumentation into their analog electronics courses, this text provides forty end-of-chapter-style problems covering basic concepts in diodes, operational amplifiers, bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), and enhancement-mode MOSFETs. Each problem guides students through a three-way solution process of analysis, simulation, and measurement. Short video tutorials integrate closely with the problems to demonstrate relevant software and measurement techniques. This text also offers a cross reference between the forty problems of this text and corresponding sections of popular textbooks.
