Kularatna's new book describes modern component families and how to design circuit blocks using them. While much of this information may be available elsewhere, in Modern Component Families and Circuit Block Design it is integrated with additional design hints that are unique. The discussion covers most components necessary in an embedded design or a DSP-based real time system design. The chapter on modern semi-conductor sensors allows system designers to use the latest sensor ICs for real-world physical parameter sensing.
Covers the most recent low-power components
Written by an authority on power electronics
*Includes extensive illustrations and references

Nihal Kularatna is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. He won the New Zealand Innovator of the Year Award (2013). His electronic engineering career spans 45 years and he is currently active in research in supercapacitor applications, power converter topologies, and power conditioning. He has contributed to over 160 papers and authored nine books. Multiple patents were granted for his supercapacitor assisted (SCA) circuit topologies. Before migrating to New Zealand in 2002, he was the CEO of the Arthur C Clarke Institute in Sri Lanka.

. . .this book can serve as a valuable resource and application idea source for upper-division undergraduate students and faculty involved in electronic design activities; professional design engineers; and two-year technical program students.

This volume effectively assembles various design strategies and information previously found only scattered in a vast array of technical application notes, engineering bulletins, and electronic data books. The volume also offers significant knowledge on critical characteristics and parameters for these building blocks, as well as a look at the relative strengths and weaknesses of different implementations...The book is successful enough to grant a designer's viewpoint on modern components and appends a practical approach to design problems rather than a generic analysis of broad engineering issues. Since the text emphasizes both fundamentals and new paradigms that are essential in modern circuit design, it is undoubtedly a good compendium for classroom usage and industrial practice. The major advantage of this book is its utilization of a lucid, intuitive language to gradually develop the reader's understanding of important concepts in modern electronic component systems and circuit design. Given this approach, Kularatna's readers will find the book beneficial not only to reinforce their technical foundation, but also to update themselves with the ever-altering electronic component systems technology...In sum, Modern Component Families and Circuit Block Design is a book that electrical and electronic engineering senior undergraduate and (advanced) graduate students, designers, practitioners, academicians, or researchers should find extremely interesting, informative - and perhaps most important - refreshingly different. - IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine, Sept./Oct. 2004
