The Circuit Designer's Companion, Fourth Editionprovides 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, along with new coverage of the latest advances in electronics. It 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.

Five new chapters on Extreme Environment Design, Design for Reliability, Instrumentation and Measurement Techniques, Circuit Protection Devices, Counterfeit Avoidance and Detection are new to this edition. Additional sections on: Advanced Packaging; Wide Band Gap Devices for Power, Sensors, Burn In testing and accelerated ageing are also included.

  • Provides an invaluable companion for circuit designers and practicing electronics engineers that includes best practices
  • Includes practical, real-world considerations for components, PCBs, manufacturability, reliability and cost
  • Contains new material on design tools, high-speed circuits, variability and tolerances, noise, simulation methods and testing
