Overview

A compendium of practical advice and pointers – a unique masterclass in practical product design that bridges the gap between theory and implementation

  • An invaluable companion for circuit designers and practicing electronics engineers – gives best practices, design guidelines and engineering knowledge gleaned from years of experience
  • Includes practical, real-world considerations for components, PCBs, manufacturability, reliability and cost, enabling engineers to design and troubleshoot faster, cheaper and more effectively
  • Contains new material on design tools, high-speed circuits, variability and tolerances, noise, simulation methods, and testing

The third edition of this classic work on circuit design gives engineers the understanding and practical know-how to produce optimized, reliable, cost-effective electronic circuits. It bridges the gap between the theoretical learning that most university courses provide and the practical knowledge and application that comes from years of experience. Topics covered include analog and digital circuits, component types, power supplies and printed circuit board design, plus new coverage of the latest advances in electronics since the previous edition published.

The Circuit Designer’s Companion is ideal for Professional electronics design engineers, advanced amateur electronics designers, electronic engineering students and professors looking for a book with a real-world design outlook.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Wilson (electrical and electronic engineering, U. of Southampton) revises a textbook and handbook written by Tim Williams and previously published in 1990 and 2004. Some of the technological details have changed in the two decades, he says, but most of the underlying principles remain the same. There is material here for anyone from bright-eyed students to grizzled veterans, though not always the same information. Among the topics are printed circuits, active components, analogy integrated circuits, electromagnetic compatibility, and general product design."Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
