This comprehensive and well-organized text discusses the fundamentals of electronic communication, such as devices and analog and digital circuits, which are so essential for an understanding of digital electronics. Professor Santiram Kal, with his wealth of knowledge and his years of teaching experience, compresses, within the covers of a single volume, all the aspects of electronics - both analog and digital - encompassing devices such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, fibre optics, and photonics. In so doing, he has struck a fine balance between analog and digital electronics. A distinguishing feature of the book is that it gives case studies in modern applications of electronics, including information technology, that is, DBMS, multimedia, computer networks, Internet, and optical communication. Worked-out examples, interspersed throughout the text, and the large number of diagrams should enable the student to have a better grasp of the subject. Besides, exercises, given at the end of each chapter, will sharpen the student's mind in self-study. These student-friendly features are intended to enhance the value of the text and make it both useful and interesting.
