If you design electronics for a living, you need Robust Electronic Design Reference Book . Written by a working engineer, who has put over 115 electronic products into production at Sycor, IBM, and Lexmark, Robust Electronic Design Reference covers all the various aspects of designing and developing electronic devices and systems that: -Work. -Are safe and reliable. -Can be manufactured, tested, repaired, and serviced. -May be sold and used worldwide. -Can be adapted or enhanced to meet new and changing requirements. Robust Electronic Design Reference Book is an electronics designer's reference library condensed into two volumes. It guides you through the entire process of: -Gathering user requirements. -Developing the design specification. -Partitioning the design into electronics, software, and other technologies. -Designing circuits for signal integrity, EMC, EMI, and ESD. -Choosing components and materials. -Reviewing the design. -Designing printed circuit boards, backplanes, and cables. -Bringing up prototypes. -Testing, characterizing, and refining your design. -Getting approvals. -Putting your product into production, or your equipment into service. Includes over 600 illustrations, nearly 200 tables, and an extensive Glossary and Index.
