The Introduction to Analog and Digital Circuits book is written for students who are interested in learning the fundamental elements of electrical circuits from an engineering perspective.

The book is divided in two main sections: digital circuits (6 chapters) and analog circuits (6 chapters). The digital section covers the basics of binary arithmetic and Boolean Algebra, combinational and synchronous sequential hardware design, as well as implementation on modern programmable devices. The analog section covers fundamental electrical concepts (DC, AC, linear circuit analysis), as well as more applied concepts such as operational amplifiers instrumentation and measurement.

To strengthen the conceptual understanding of the topics, each chapter includes an extensive and varied set of exercises and examples: worked problems, practice exercises, a workbook section for students to directly complete during lectures, as well as a list of problems at the end of each chapter.

Each chapter in this textbook is designed to allow students to easily absorb basic concepts in circuits. This textbook is meant to be used as a gateway reference providing basic knowledge about concepts in digital and analog circuits. Students will be able to build upon these basic concepts to deepen their knowledge about circuits and feel confident in moving forward to more advanced concepts in this field.
