By arrangement with Newnes/Elsevier Publishers three world renowned and class leading books on the art of Analog Design using the tutorial approach are now available from Elektor. Never before have we seen such thick and heavy books on a subject now going through a rebirth like no other: analog circuit design, the horror of all microcontroller-only people, and the dark skill of what some say are a few older engineers out there of the Bob Pease and Jim Williams generation.
Now, the recent solder-free, keyboard- and catalog-only kids have a unique opportunity to learn the essentials of analog design the way it should go: inspired by the pages of authoritative books that belong on the shelves of every electronics engineer serious about his/her business of designing stuff.
Let’s do the numbers: Volume 1, A Tutorial Guide to Applications and Solutions, has 932 printed pages; Volume 2, Immersion in the Black Art of Analog Design, 1k250 pages, and Volume 3, Design Note Collection, 1k104 pages. All three books are HEAVY and require parcel delivery, not even mentioning the set of three volumes which requires DHL Class EW truck delivery :-). Volumes 1, 2, 3 are hard cover, measuring 22.5 (w) x 28 cm (h) and 3.5 cm, 5 cm, and 4.5 cm thick respectively (that’s a scope tube in the picture).
Volumes 1 and 2 are co-edited by the late Jim Williams, “a poet who wrote electronics” and a name everyone in the industry should know. It’s probably Jim’s desk pictured there on the cover of Volume 2, and his e-work of art on volume 1.
These books are guaranteed to unveil the darkest sides of opamp and discrete part based circuit design, as well as designing for low noise and total analog response, something no microcontroller can ever hope to achieve.
In celebration of the launch of Analog Circuit Design, you get 10% discount when you buy all three volumes as a set. Be warned: serious contents, heavy transport!
