Students will find the text ideally matched for courses covering electronics, systems and control, and electronic servicing. Whether you are looking for a complete self-study course in digital electronics, a concise reference text to dip into or a course text that is readable and straightforward, John Crisp has provided the solution. This is a concise, readable introductory text ideal for self-study by professionals or students on courses with limited contact time. It covers the practical side from a technician/professional viewpoint. The content is carefully matched to a range of BTEC and C&G syllabuses.
