The second edition of Electronic Systems and Techniques provides a concise and comprehensive understanding of electronics, from first principles to modern computer systems. The expanded text clearly explains the fundamentals of electronic systems and circuits in depth, including radio and television reception, digital and microprocessor systems, amplifiers, oscillators, digital gates and counters.

It is a core text for the City and Guilds electronic servicing Course (2240) Parts 1 & 2, and is also suitable for BTEC First Certificate/Diploma and National Certificate/Diploma in electronic engineering, as well as A level and GCSE electronics.
