This book reflects Dr. Thompson's twenty years of experience designing and teaching analog circuit design, and is the ideal reference for anyone who needs a straightforward introduction to the subject. In this book, Marc Thompson describes intuitive and 'back of the envelope' techniques for designing and analyzing analog circuits, including transistor amplifiers (CMOS and bipolar), transistor switching, thermal circuit design, magnetic circuit design, and control systems. The application of some simple rules-of-thumb and design techniques is the first step in developing an intuitive understanding of the behavior of complex electrical systems. Intuitive Analog Circuit Design outlines ways of thinking about analog circuits and systems that will develop 'circuit intuition' and a 'feel' for what a good, working analog circuit design should be. Analog circuit design is introduced with a minimum of mathematics. The book uses numerous analogies from digital design to help readers whose main background is in digital make the transition to analog design. This new edition is an ideal introductory text for anyone who is new to this area. ---SPICE files and Powerpoint files available online to assist readers in simulating circuits found in the text. ---Design examples are utilized throughout the text, along with end of chapter examples ---Real-world parasitic elements in circuit design and their effects are covered.
