Introduction to Electronic Circuit Design
Prentice Hall, 2003 - Technology & Engineering - 1132 pages
A basic understanding of circuit design is useful for many engineerseven those who may never actually design a circuitbecause it is likely that they will fabricate, test, or use these circuits in some way during their careers. This book provides a thorough and rigorous explanation of circuit design with a focus on the underlying principlesof how different circuits workinstead of relying completely on design procedures or "rules of thumb." In this way, readers develop the intuitionthat is essential to understanding and solving design problems in those instances where no procedure exists. Features a "Topical organization" rather than a sequential one emphasizing the models and types of analyses used so they are less confusing to readers.Discusses complex topics such as small-signal approximation, frequency response, feedback, and model selection. Most of the examples and exercises compare the analytical results with simulationsSimulation files are available on the CD-ROM. A generic transistor is used to avoid repetition, presenting many of the basic principles that are common to FET and BJT circuits. Devotes a whole chapter to device physics.For reference use by professionals in the field of computer engineering or electronic circuit design.
