Book Description

10 April 2008
This book enables design engineers to be more effective in designing discrete and integrated circuits by helping them understand the role of analog devices in their circuit design. Analog elements are at the heart of many important functions in both discrete and integrated circuits, but from a design perspective the analog components are often the most difficult to understand. The examples include operational amplifiers, D/A and A/D converters and active filters. Effective circuit design requires a strong understanding of the operation of these analog devices and how they affect circuit design.Table of contents include: chapter1: The OP AMP, chapter 2: Other Linear Circuits, chapter 3: Sensors, chapter 4: RF/IF Circuits, chapter 5: Fundamentals Of Sampled Data Systems, chapter 6: Converters, chapter 7: Data Converter Support Circuits, chapter 8: Analog Filters, chapter 9: Power Management, chapter 10: Passive Components, chapter 11: Overvoltage Effects On Analog Integrated Circuits, and chapter 12: Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design Issues.It provides comprehensive coverage of analog circuit components for the practicing engineer. It includes market-validated design information for all major types of linear circuits. It includes practical advice on how to read op amp data sheets and how to choose off-the-shelf op amps. It contains full chapter covering printed circuit board design issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make room, I need a bigger shelf ! 1 Dec 2008
What an intriguing book! Is it a tutorial for students, or a practical reference for engineers to "crib" from? It's certainly one that can do both jobs I'm pleased to say.

While based around Analog Devices own products there is enough information to dissect any manufacturers product to identify what your specific requirement may be. It covers all aspects of design in an open and through way that you need to know to complete a project. I was particularly impressed with the later chapters covering the aspects that we tend to leave till too late, and a good subject cover on the issues of PCB design.
This is a volume I am pleased to have on my shelf, one I will dip into time and again to refresh my weary mind! I felt Hank Zumbahlen has done a good job assembling this volume, the chapters flow well, and I didn't consider it too "dry" a read. I wish I had a copy when I was at college!

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and useful 28 Oct 2008
By D. Fullmer - Published on
Yes, this is an unabashed declaration for the use of Analog Devices components. However, it works for me. Most analog engineers and system engineers have used or considered using AD devices at one time or another. The good new is they make good stuff. Sure, I also use many of the competitors but I can always rely on AD for good, state of the art analog components. The book is well organized and written in a way that is easy to find what you need. This is not a compilation of PHD white papers. Many books are either to simplistic or written by a professor who may be great but has trouble getting to the point. Don't get me wrong some of my best friends are PHD's but sometimes I just need to get the thing working so I can move on. This book is like that. Each section shows me how the circuit works and pitfalls I need to be concerned about. The range of different applications and types of circuitry is impressive. Yes we live in a digital age but all starts as analog.......

2.0 out of 5 stars Concerned with the rest of handbook .... 13 Jun 2014
By Engineer - Published on
I was looking forward to checking the handbook.Then, noticed that the gain equation in figure 1-3 on page 5 was wrong. So, I thought, well a mistake.Then continued reading and noticed that equation 1-4 on page 7 was wrong as well. I started wondering if it was worth continue reading. Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I Had This Book 10 Years Ago! 25 Mar 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book quickly made a place for itself on my shelf next to a worn copy of "The Art of Electronics" by Horowitz and Hill. It covers Op Amps, Data Conversion (ADC/DAC), RF/IF circuits, PCB Design... Check the online table of contents.

The book is a reference, a tutorial, a FAQ, and a collection of app notes. The treatment is thorough and practical, bringing in enough theory to justify an approach and then providing references to a more mathematical treatment. In most chapters there is an optional section on device physics and the underlying implementation of integrated components. Implementation explanations like this are not often needed, but when they are there are few other places to turn for this level of detail on a real part. The book is surprisingly readable, written by practicing engineers for practicing engineers.

The circuit diagram reference actual parts with part numbers and reflect relatively current industry practice, such as a much heavier reliance on FETs than BJTs. The books also shows a strong preference for integrated solutions over discrete. One 'negative' is that since this book was written by Analog Devices, the integrated solutions are inevitably Analog Device parts. (I don't mind since I prefer AD parts.) However, there is enough explanation of "What", "Why", and "How" that you could substitute analogous parts from other vendors.

If you are an electrical engineer, this is a much needed addition to the "Must Have" books: current, relevant, practical, clear.
