Passive Components for Circuit Design

By

  • Ian Sinclair, Long-standing technical author, UK

Passive Components for Circuit Design is a unique introduction to this key area of analog electronics designed for technician engineers and anyone involved in circuit design. The coverage encompasses all component types capable of power amplification: resistors, capacitors, transformers, solenoids, motors and transducers. The behaviour of the components is explored along with the different types available and the principles of circuit design. Tolerances, stability, variation with temperature, reliability and manufacturing standards are all covered.Reading this book will improve your skills in component selection and analog circuit design. These are essential skills not only for the analog designer, but for all circuit designers, professional or amateur.

Reviews

'This is the book you need, to learn that not all resistors respond the same - not all capacitors act alike. I recommend this book as the key to selecting the right types of Passive Components for your application.' Robert A. Pease, Staff Scientist, National Semiconductor A unique introduction to this key area of analogue electronics designed for technician engineers and anyone involved in circuit design. -Electronic Products News
