Van Valken Burg
Circuit Theory Analysis & Synthesis
Circuit & Network Theory
Modern Control Systems
- Examples are presented in both Verilog & VHDL, an introduction to System Verilog has been added to the text.
- Recognizing that three public-domain languages Verilog, VHDL & System Verilog all play a role in design flows for today’s digital devices, the book offers a parallel track of the presence of multiple languages.
- Circuit Theory Analysis And Synthesis by Abhijit Chakrabarti is a very good book for practicing numerical.
- The book is a perfect match for those students who are preparing for GATE, IES, SSC-JE, and all other competitive exams as it contains many solved examples.
- The theory in this book is explained very well, problems are solved easily.
- Many varieties of practice questions are given after every chapter.
- Very simple straightforward concepts are nicely explained, and questions given in this book will enhance thinking about graph theory. Language is super easy to understand, examples are also excellent.
- All of the topics are well explained with excellent simple examples, learning will be simple and this book would be a good tool to have in-depth knowledge on the subject.
- The text provides a gradual development of control theory, shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB, and avoids highly mathematical arguments.
- Good book with proper explanation, a wealth of examples, and worked problems are featured throughout the text.
