Overview

Engineers and scientists frequently have to get involved in electronic circuit design even though it may not be their specialty. Writing for the inexperienced designer, Hamilton begins by reviewing the basic mathematics and physics needed to understand circuit design. He then goes on to discuss individual components (resistors, capacitors etc.) and commonly encountered circuit elements such as differentiators, oscillators, filters and couplers. A major bonus is the inclusion of a CD with the student edition of the PSpice simulation software, together with models of most of the circuits covered.
