Preface to Wiley Acing Gate Electronics and Communication


Wiley’s Acing the GATE Examination in Electronics and Communication is intended to be the complete book for those aspiring to compete in the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) in Electronics,

And Communication discipline, comprehensively covering all topics as prescribed in the syllabus in terms of study material, quick reference support material and an elaborate question bank.

There are host of salient features offered by the book as compared to the content of the other books already published for the same purpose.

Some of the important ones include the following. One of the notable features of the book includes presentation of study material in simple and lucid language and in small sections while retaining focus on alignment of the material in accordance with the requirements of GATE examination.

While it is important for a book that has to cover the whole gamut of subjects in electronics and communication engineering to be precise in the treatment of different topics; the present book achieves that goal without compromising completeness.

The study material and also the question bank have all the three important `C’ qualities for effective communication across to the examinees including Conciseness, Completeness and Correctness.

Another notable feature of the book is inclusion of summary of important mathematical expressions and formulas towards the end of each topic.

It is pertinent to mention that based on analysis of GATE examination questions in the last ten years reveals that more than 30 per cent of GATE questions were based on important mathematical formulations and their interpretation.

While the study material would help examinees understand the concepts; the summary of mathematical formulations would provide to them a ready reference close to the examination day to ace the examination.

The third important feature of the book is its comprehensive question bank. The question bank is organized in three different categories namely the Solved Problems, Practice Exercise and GATE Previous Years’ Questions.

Solved problems contain a large number of multiple choice questions and numerical answer questions of varying complexity.

Each question in this category is followed by its solution. Under the Practice Exercise, again there are multiple choice and numerical answer questions with marks allocated for each question.

The answers to these questions are given at the end of the section. Each of the answers is supported by an explanation or a solution hint unlike other books where solutions to only selected questions are given.

The third category contains questions from previous years’ GATE examinations from 2003 onwards. Each question is followed by a complete solution and is marked for year of examination and marks.

Briefly outlining the length and breadth of the material presented in the book, it is divided into eight broad sections in line with the prescribed syllabus.

Each of the sections comprises more than one chapter. In all, there are fifty two chapters spread out in eight different sections.

The book begins with the section on Networks (Section-I). The section is divided into seven chapters covering network graphs,

solution methods, network theorems, steady state sinusoidal analysis, linear constant coefficient differential equation analysis of networks, two-port networks and state equation analysis of networks.

It is followed by second section on Electronic Devices (Section-II) covering semiconductor physics, semiconductor diodes,

three-terminal devices including bipolar transistors, field effect transistors and so on, lasers and device technology in five different chapters.

Analog Circuits (Section-III), covered in ten different chapters, comprehensively covers analysis and applications of important electronic devices.

The study material in this section is spread out in ten chapters including small signal equivalent circuits of electronic devices, semiconductor diode circuits, biasing and bias stability, amplifiers

And their frequency response, operational amplifiers, filters, oscillators, wave shaping circuits and power supplies. Digital Electronics (Section-IV) is the next section.

It covers all important topics of digital electronics including Boolean algebra, logic gates and logic families, combinational logic, sequential logic, D/A and A/D converters and memory devices and microprocessors.

Topics covered in the section on Signals and Systems (Section-V) that follows the section on digital electronics include Laplace transform,

Fourier series, Fourier transform, z-transform and linear time invariant (LTI) systems. Section-VI deals with Control Systems.

Different topics covered in this section include control system basics, block diagram and signal flow graphs, error constants and sensitivity parameters, stability and stability analysis, control system compensators, root locus analysis, frequency response analysis and state variable analysis of control systems.

Communication Systems (Section-VII) covers random signals and noise, analog communication systems, digital communication systems, information theory and multiple access techniques.

The final section on Electromagnetics (Section-VIII) covers elements of vector calculus, Maxwell’s equations, plane waves, transmission lines, waveguides and antennas.

GATE is an All-India level competitive examination for engineering graduates aspiring to pursue Masters or Ph.D. programs in India.

The examination evaluates the examinees in General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and the subject discipline. It is a competitive examination where close to ten lakh students appear every year.

The level of competition is therefore very fierce. While admission to a top institute for the Masters programme continues to be the most important reason for working hard to secure a good score in the GATE examination;

another great reason to appear and handsomely qualify GATE examination is that many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) are and probably in future almost all will be recruiting through GATE score.

And it is quite likely that even big private sector companies may start considering GATE seriously for their recruitment, as GATE score can give a bigger clue about who they are recruiting.

The examination today is highly competitive and the GATE score plays an important role.

This only reiterates the need to have a book that prepares examinees not only to qualify the GATE examination by getting a score just above the threshold but also enabling them to achieve a competitive score.

The present book is written with the objective of fulfilling this requirement.

The effort is intended to offer to the large cross-section of GATE aspirants a self-study and do-it-yourself book providing comprehensive

And step-by-step treatment of each and every aspect of the examination in terms of concise but complete study material and an exhaustive set of questions with solutions.

The authors would eagerly look forward to the feedback from the readers through publishers to help them make it better in subsequent editions.
