Product Description

Review

Combining his expertise as a senior scientist at National Semiconductor with a sense of humor and easy writing style, Pease has produced an excellent guide to analog circuit troubleshooting. - Library Journal 2004

About the Author

Pease attended Mt. Hermon School, and graduated from MIT in 1961 with a BSEE. He worked at Philbrick Researches up to 1975 and designed many OpAmps and Analog Computing Modules. Pease joined National Semiconductor in 1976. He has designed about 24 analog ICs including power regulators, voltage references, and temp sensors. He has written 65+ magazine articles and holds about 21 US patents. Pease is the self-declared Czar of Bandgaps since 1986. He enjoys hiking and trekking in Nepal, and ferroequinology. His position at NSC is Staff Scientist. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE. Pease wrote the definitive book, TROUBLESHOOTING ANALOG CIRCUITS, now in its 18th printing. It has been translated into French, German, Dutch, Russian, and Polish. Pease is a columnist in Electronic Design magazine, with over 240 columns published. The column, PEASE PORRIDGE, covers a wide range of technical topics. Pease also has posted many technical and semi-technical items on his main web-site: http://www.national.com/rap Many of Pease's recent columns are accessible there. Pease was inducted into the E.E. Hall Of Fame in 2002. Refer to: http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=17269&Extension=pdf See Pease's other web site at http://www.transtronix.com

4.0 out of 5 stars When things aren't working use this book. 7 Jun 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
When things aren't working in your circuits use
this book to get you started on how to find WHY
things aren't working. This book is a collection
of essays originally published by the author, and
a couple of other contributers in trade magazines.
They in general consist of lists and explanations
of problems and how to fix them. These lists are
grouped by kinds of circuits. I would have liked
to see more specifics on power supply problems
and on Phase Locked Loops and other oscillators.
Of particular use (at least to me)
is the advice on equipping your bench. If you build
huge boards this isn't as valuable as if you build
100 - 200 component circuits. The author has an
overly anti-Spice bias, but his cautions are generally
worth remembering. (I once took a grad course on
the internals of Spice, and another one on the
internals of mechanical simulation programs - they
all require that you understand the problem before
you rely on the computer). Obviously large very
inter-related circuit boards will require more
computer aided design because of the sheer complexity.
This book does tend to attribute a lot of problems
in systems to heat, whereas my most typical problem
is poor mechanical connections of some
sort (bad connectors, solder joints, etc). I use
this book as a reminder of what I need to be
aware of when I have a problem. A lot of the
engineers at HP and elsewhere really like this book, and THEY
are the analog design "water-walkers" that I truly
respect

4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing Humor and insight to Electronics 18 Nov 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Working in an environment of Spice fanatices who's circuits don't always work, it's a relief to know that I'm not alone. Bob also writes with a humorous approach which requires some wit in the cut-and-dried field of electronics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 27 Sep 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even for a seasoned engineer, there are useful tidbits and tricks in here that can really save you.... Lots of stuff is just common sense, but it's the little nuggets of gold hidden within this book that make it a worthwhile read. If you're just starting your career as an Electrical Engineer or technician, this book will make a tremendous resource. For the amateur, there's lots of good stuff in here such as diagrams for nifty and inexpensive test equipment - learn how to build your own active scope probe for [very little]! Well written and humorous it's not a heavy technical read, but one that will definitely impart some very valuable knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved my life..... again and again! 4 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a self-educated analog electronics designer and manufacturer, this is the book I use and recommend most. Everything in it is true. Everything in it is useful. Every page reminds you that the best test instrument is you brain. "Inspirational stuff" indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you design analog or digital circuits, you need this book 22 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a collection of his articles from EDN magazine. It flows well and is a pleasure to read. Bob basicly describes the things that could go wrong with items such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors and oscillators. As the title states, if you need to troubleshoot your designs on the component level, buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for serious engineers... 1 July 2003
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A fun read, and an excellent reference filling the huge gap between datasheets and most texts. A must have for anyone who touches hardware. I can't count the number of times I've gone to this book whenever I'm not quite using a device as intended, or I've got a sinking feeling I'm about to shoot myself in the foot with a design. I own *lots* of books and this book is packed with useful info that isn't found in any of them and isn't all that intuitive to start with.
