Text Book

This quarter we ordered a custom version of our textbook which will be sold at the UCSD bookstore at a signfinicant discount. It should be in stock in time for the class:

The Analysis and Design of Linear Circuits, 8th Edition (UCSD Custom), R. E. Thomas, A. J. Rosa and G. J. Toussaint, Wiley 2016. ISBN 9781119319894

This custom version contains only a selection of chapters from the standard hardcover version of the book:

The Analysis and Design of Linear Circuits, 8th Edition, R. E. Thomas, A. J. Rosa and G. J. Toussaint, Wiley 2016. ISBN 978-1-119-23538-5

Of course you can buy the hardcover version or you may also choose to buy used earlier editions dating back to the 4th edition.

Homework will be assigned from the 8th Edition though. 8th Edition is on the Science and Engineering Library Reserves.

What's next?

Check out the following linear circuit experiment from MAE171a, Mechanical Engineering Laboratory I (prepared by Professor Raymond de Callafon). At the end MAE 140 you should be ready to perform this experiment successfully and follows this lecture with ease.

IMPORTANT: You do not need to do any of the simulation using Multisim. There are some free simulators out there which you might want to try. However, simulations will not be required nor graded as part of the homework. IMPORTANT: For problems 3.14, 3.16, 3.19, solve using NODE VOLTAGE, not MESH CURRENT!
