Descriptions du produit
Revue de presse
"Wilson (electrical and electronic engineering, U. of Southampton) revises a textbook and handbook written by Tim Williams and previously published in 1990 and 2004. Some of the technological details have changed in the two decades, he says, but most of the underlying principles remain the same. There is material here for anyone from bright-eyed students to grizzled veterans, though not always the same information. Among the topics are printed circuits, active components, analogy integrated circuits, electromagnetic compatibility, and general product design."--Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
Présentation de l'éditeur
Organized into nine chapters, the book begins with a discussion of grounding and wiring of electronic or electrical circuits, when to consider grounding, and the main factors that must be taken into account when designing a new PCB. It then introduces the reader to passive components such as resistors and capacitors, potentiometers and inductors, and crystals and resonators, as well as active components like diodes, thyristors and triacs, bipolar transistors, junction field-effect transistors, metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs), and insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs). It also describes high-speed digital circuit design and analog integrated circuits, including operational amplifiers and comparators, and power supplies such as batteries. The final two chapters focus on electromagnetic compatibility and the latest advances in electronics, along with safety considerations in the design of electronic equipment.
This book is an invaluable resource for circuit designers and practicing electronics engineers, electronic engineering students, and professors.
- An invaluable companion for circuit designers and practicing electronics engineers – gives best practices, design guidelines and engineering knowledge gleaned from years of experience
- Includes practical, real-world considerations for components, PCBs, manufacturability, reliability and cost, enabling engineers to design and troubleshoot faster, cheaper and more effectively
- Contains new material on design tools and communication devices, high-speed digital circuit design, simulation methods and testing

The Circuit Designer's Companion is way more advanced than that. Certainly more than I need, but I still found it very interesting when it wasn't making my brain hurt. And it's not totally irrelevant to software development; one of my first instructors in programming described a computer program as a "temporary circuit". I did learn a lot about electronics from reading it.
I showed this book to my EE friends, and they all wanted to steal it. I had some of them over to play cards one night when I had just got the book in. They saw it and spent the rest of the evening going through the book looking for the "new bits" while I worked on my website. Gotta love engineers.
Based on their recommendations, if you're in the electronics field, especially circuit design, you should have this book. (One of them has the first and second editions, and he still tried to steal mine!)
There's not as many additions to the third edition as you might expect. The new material is primary regarding programmable logic devices, ADCs, and a tiny bit on power management -- largely reflecting how ubiquitous programmable logic has has become, how many more devices now need at least some real-world (analog) input, and how many more devices today are battery-powered, I guess. The "Introduction to the 3rd Edition" does mention this -- that it "has really been an exercise of revision rather than revolution." As far as I can tell, that largely just means that they re-drew some of the illustrations, re-formatted some tables, re-flowed the text to fit the now-slightly-larger page size... and hopefully went over the material with a fine-toothed comb to check for errors?
It is true that today most of what's in this book can readily be found on-line with just a little Googling. However, I still think it has significant value in that the book is so comprehensive, rather than having to bookmark/search for a dozen different web sites each covering the equivalent of a few chapters of the book, you just have to crack open this one tome and it's all covered.
Overall, while this is a good book, it's kinda hard to recommend at anything approaching the full-retail price of sixty bucks. Forty would be more like it, IMO (and happens to be about the eBook price)... and I'd be recommending it to everyone as a "must have" if it were thirty or less. As-is, I suggest trying to find a bargain on the second edition, which should be available as the 3rd edition "takes over" ... although ironically as of today (4/6/12), the second edition has a higher price tag!
My only knock is the PCB section being in millimeters instead of mils; it would help to have both in the design rule section. Yes I can easily convert units but it slows me up.
It is a good book to use as a backup when trying to convince coworkers of grounding and power distribution schemes. Yes the information is online but we know there are different design ideas online and this book is a good way to filter them.
I am going to use it immediately in my work.
The reason why im giving it 3 stars rather than the 4 stars that it may deserve, is the amount of typos all over the book, out of the few worked out examples some formulas are clearly wrong, sometimes its just some letters that got "switched", sometimes it seems like the editor "copy-pasted" similar terms but forgot to update them with their corresponding values, sometimes in a formula a division symbol might be replaced with a product simbol, etc.. and sometimes the results are just plainly wrong. And in some cases even the ilustrations are wrong, for instance it will show an npn transistor when clearly a pnp was intended, all of these make you stare at a single page until you figure out where the mistake is, its like trying to find Waldo, electronics edition... Also, many of the diagrams (the ilustrations are ok) are not very clear.
This book reminds me a little bit about the Art of Electronics, but with a lot less content, a lot less math, and a lot less applications and examples.
Overall I would say this is a good book, an interesting read, but clearly a bit on the pricey side considering the amount of information. The shocking thing about it, is that the book is on its Third edition and all these typos are just brutally in your face...
