In keeping with our focus on space for covers for our book, we have chosen the NASA Voyager spacecraft for the sixth edition.
The reason for this is that like any spacecraft there are many circuits that play criti - cal roles in their functionality.
The beginning of the Voyager 1 and 2 odyssey began on August 20, 1977, for Voyager 2 and on September 5, 1977, for Voyager 1.
Both were launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Voyager 1 was launched on a faster orbit so it eventually became the first man-made object to leave our solar system.
There is some debate over whether it has actually left the solar system, but it certainly will at some point in time. Voyager 2 and two Pioneer spacecraft will also leave the solar system at some point in time.
Voyager 1 is still functioning and sending back data, a truly significant achievement for NASA engineers. The design processes that make the Voyager operate so reliably are based on the fundamentals discussed in this textbook.
Finally, space is vast so that Voyager 1 will fly past other solar systems; the odds of actually coming into contact with something are so remote that it may virtually fly through the universe forever!

We have added learning objectives to each chapter to reflect what we believe are the most important items to learn from each chapter.
These should help you focus more carefully on what you should be learning. There are more than 580 revised end-of-chapter problems, new endof-chapter problems, and revised practice problems.
We continue to try and make our problems as practical as possible. In addition, we have improved Connect for this edition by increasing the number of problems available substantially.
Now, professors may select from more than a thousand problems as they build thier online homework assignments. We have also built SmartBook for this edition.
With SmartBook, stu - dents get the same text as the print version, along with personalized tips on what to study next, thanks to SmartBook’s adaptive technology
Available on Connect are a number of additional instructor and student resources to accompany the text.
These include complete solutions for all practice and end-of-chapter problems, solutions in PSpice and Multisim problems, lecture PowerPoints®, and text image files.
In addition, instructors can use COSMOS, a complete online solutions manual organization system to create custom homework, quizzes, and tests using end-of-chapter problems from the text.
