Newnes launches source book of analog circuit design solutions
August 25, 2011 // Paul Buckley
Newnes, an imprint of Elsevier Science & Technology Books, has published what the publisher describes as a ‘bible’ of analog electronic engineering and design by two industry leaders. Analog Circuit Design by Bob Dobkin & Jim Williams is a comprehensive source book of circuit design solutions that will aid systems designers with elegant and practical design techniques that focus on common circuit design challenges.
The Analog Circuit Design book provides circuit system designers with the information they need:
- Covers the fundamentals of linear/analog circuit and system design to guide engineers with their design challenges.
- Based on the Application Notes of Linear Technology, the foremost designer of high performance analog products, readers will gain practical insights into design techniques and practice.
- Broad range of topics, including power management tutorials, switching regulator design, linear regulator design, data conversion, signal conditioning, and high frequency/RF design.
- Contributors include the leading lights in analog design, Robert Dobkin, Jim Williams and Carl Nelson, among others.
Hailing from Detroit in the shadow of a booming postwar US automotive market, Williams developed an early curiosity and interest in all things electronic. He would talk about working at a TV repair shop during his early years, so he could poke around inside to find out how they worked. His passion for electronics took him to Boston, where his intellect and drive helped him find a technicians job working on the Apollo program. Although self-taught in electronics, Williams taught and did research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1968 to 1979, concentrating exclusively on analog circuit design. During this time, he began his legendary writing career - finding clear, elegant ways to describe complex and seemingly indescribable design challenges and solutions. All news
