Hitachi's μ-Chip, a type of radio frequency identification circuit, or RFID, measures only 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm, making it barely visible. This integrated circuit of theirs was developed to prevent counterfeit banknotes, and is small enough to be embedded into paper-based financial securities. Despite its size, the circuits making up this tiny marvel must obey all the same laws that large circuits obey, bringing us to the topic of circuit analysis.
In a complete study of introductory circuit analysis, the following topics will certainly be dealt with:
- Basic Concepts
- Resistive Circuits
- Nodal and Loop Analysis
- Operational Amplifiers
- Capacitance and Inductance
- First and Second Order Transient Circuits
- Alternating Currents
- Power Analysis
- Magnetic Coupling
- Three-Phase Circuits
- Variable Frequency Networks
- LaPlace Transforms and Applications
- Fourier Analysis
- Two Port Networks
A terrific source for staying on top of the latest developments in circuit theory and applications is the Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers.
