Description

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.

About the Author

Nihal Kularatna

Nihal Kularatna is an electronics engineer with over 43 years of contribution to profession and research. He has authored eight books for practicing electronic engineers including the two consecutive IET Electrical Measurement Series books titled Modern electronic test & measuring instruments (1996) and Digital and analogue instrumentation- testing and measurement (2003/2008) and three Elsevier (USA) titles. His recent research monograph on energy storage systems, titled Energy storage devices for electronic systems: rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, was also published by Elsevier in 2015. He was the winner of New Zealand Innovator of the Year 2013 Award and in 2015 he was conferred with a Doctor of Science degree by the University of Waikato. He is currently active in research in surge protection systems, high efficiency linear power supplies, power conditioning techniques and supercapacitor applications, with a contribution of over 150 papers to learned journals and international conferences. His work on supercapacitor assisted (SCA) circuit topologies/techniques such as SCALDO, SCASA and SCATMA culminated numerous granted or pending patents. He is presently employed as an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering, the University of Waikato, New Zealand. At international IEEE conferences and industry trade shows he frequently delivers invited tutorials, workshops and lectures on subjects he is passionate about, including the area of innovation and commercialization. His hobbies are gardening and car-grooming.

Reviews

. . .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. - E.M. Aupperle, University of Michigan 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
