5.0 out of 5 stars A ideal book. 27 Dec. 1999
By Eveninrica - Published on
Format: Paperback
For someone who only knows V=IR, he could understand 20% of the content without difficulty.
For someone who ever took more than 2 related courses in college but hardly remember them, or ever had several monthes of hand on hardware experience. This book is written for him. BUY IT! EVERY PENNY IS WORTHY.
For a very experienced hardware engineer, 80% of this book is useless for him, the rest 20% and some tables/charts could be a good reference.
The author must be a good teacher as well as a cool hardware engineer base the following facts I observed in this book:
1. A lots of comprehensive drawing, most of them are dummy-proof.
2. Very good content structure, one can start from any chapter without difficulty. It is easy to finds what he want.
3. Easy English (OK, okay, I am from Taiwan). No riddle-like description. Always has some explaination when refer to an unpopular theory. You don't need an encycopedia when you read this book.
4. Good coverage: Components, Power and grounding, EMI, PCB problem, general problems of product design, transmission lines.
Clearly, this book is written for a digital hardware designer. Some analog issues are covered, yet they are degital design-related. For RF and pure analog design, this book is not enough.
For digital designer, I recommend this book without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have reference for everyone... 13 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Everywhere I have worked I've made sure we have lots of copies of this on hand... Many of them walk away because it's such a good reference. If you ever need to design or build a product or just a fun project and have it work, start from here. Everything you won't learn in school, and industry just calls "experience". Combine this with High Speed Digital Design: A Handbook of Black Magic and you have an extremely powerful combination of references, covering all the details you need to know. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had it in college 6 April 2000
By Robert Fuhrmann - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've only had this book for a couple of weeks and have already found it a great reference. This book should be given to entering freshman in eletrical engineering; much of the practicality of the material is not even covered in school. The range of topics is useful to anyone in the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise for The Circuit Designer's Companion 5 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This excellent book goes into great detail about the reality of the electronics world. The author gives examples and explanations of how the theoretical domain of the textbook does not always agree with the real thing. He also gives warnings on how to avoid the problems these differences cause, and approaches to minimize them if they already exist. An enjoyable and enlightening read.
