About the Author
The Analog Circuit Design set reduces the concepts of analog electronics to their simplest, most obvious form which can easily be applied (even quantitatively) with minimal effort.
Table of Contents
The emphasis of the set is to help you intuitively learn through inspection how circuits work and apply the same techniques to circuits of the same class.
This first volume, Amplifier Circuits, presents the basic principles of transistor circuit analysis, basic per-stage building blocks, and feedback. The content is restricted to quasi-static (low-frequency) considerations, to emphasize basic topological principles. The reader will be able to analyze and design multi-stage amplifiers with feedback, including calculation and specification of gain, input and output resistances, including the effects of transistor output resistance.
The presentation of feedback analysis includes important insights left out of other books. Multiple-path amplifiers is also a subject rarely found elsewhere, though common in practice. Both are covered with insights and from angles that will reduce analysis to inspection for readers. Some circuit transformations outlined within are especially helpful in reducing circuits to simpler forms for analysis. They are usefully applied in considering transistor circuits for which collector-emitter (or drain-source) resistance is not negligible, another often omitted topic which this book details. Examples are given throughout to illustrate application of principles.
- Little known circuits and techniques are revealed that can improve your circuit design and analysis skills.
- Explains fast, accurate, and simple circuit methods.
- Simulators will not create your circuits: this shows how.
- Graphically-driven presentation of concepts; like a series of seminars.
- Written by 30 year veteran designer.
