'… The subjects are treated in a concise, clear and self-contained fashion, always helped by a broad exhaustive bibliography, and cover all the necessary aspects for electronic design …'. Measurement Science and Technology
'I enthusiastically endorse the book, particularly to those who have never benefited from the simulation experience.' Physics Today
'… It is an excellent compendium of most mathematical and physical aspects of electronic circuits … [It is] a pleasure to read and a worthwhile complement to books on electronic design.' Professor Willy Sansen, KU Leuven
'An Analog Electronics Companion is an informative and up-to-date guide to this traditional sector of the electronic colossus. It has that most desirable, and all-too rare asset of being an entertaining read … [It] is much more than an overview of basic electronics for the general reader … I think most engineering professionals, and that includes most electronic engineers, will find it a very useful and handy reference book.' Steve Cripps, Hywave Associates
'Particularly useful for the student is the inclusion of a CD-ROM containing PSpice circuit simulation software, with numerous examples as discussed throughout the body of the text. All in all this book provides a clear and easy to understand discussion of analog electronic circuit design suitable for the new student or as a handy reference for more expert scientists.' Contemporary Physics
Über das Produkt
Designed for engineers and scientists who are non-specialist in electronic circuit design, this user-friendly book has two major advantages: it assumes little prior knowledge of electronics and it takes a modular approach. Accompanied by a CD-ROM with the student edition of the PSpice simulation software, together with many example circuits.
Engineers and scientists frequently find themselves having to get involved in electronic circuit design even though this may not be their specialty. This book is specifically designed for these situations, and has two major advantages for the inexperienced designer: it assumes little prior knowledge of electronics and it takes a modular approach, so you can find just what you need without working through a whole chapter. The first three parts of the book start by refreshing the basic mathematics and physics needed to understand circuit design. Part 4 discusses individual components (resistors, capacitors etc.) while the final and largest section describes commonly encountered circuit elements such as differentiators, oscillators, filters and couplers. A major bonus and learning aid is the inclusion of a CD with the student edition of the PSpice simulation software, together with models of most of the circuits described in the book.
