    Design for Electrical and Computer Engineers : Theory Concepts and Practice


This book is written forstudents and teachers engaged in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) design projects,primarily in the senior year. It guides students and faculty through the steps necessary for the successful execution of design projects. The objective of the text is to provide a treatment of the design process in ECE with a sound academic basis that is integrated with practical application. It has a strong guiding vision -- that a solid understanding of theDesign Process, Design Tools, and the right mix of Professional Skills are critical for project and career success.This text is unique in providing a comprehensive design treatment for ECE.
