Electronic Sensor Circuits & Projects

Forrest M. Mims III 2004

Electronic sensor circuits convert light, temperature, sound, and other signals into a form that can be processed by electronic circuits. Learn about solar cells, photoresistors, thermistors, and magnet switches. Then build circuits that respond to heat, pressure, light, and more. This Engineer's Mini Notebook is a compilation of three of Forrest Mims's notebooks: Sensor Projects; Solar Cell Projects; and Magnet & Magnet Sensor Projects.

Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design

Douglas Brooks 2003

This book covers the increasingly complex area of Signal Integrity issues in PCB design thoroughly, but without a need for great technical depth of understanding.Section 1 is an overview of electrical engineering principles that can serve as an introductory course for someone without any engineering education, or a review for someone who has. Section 1 can be skipped for people who already have a solid understanding in EE.Section 2 covers the major causes of signal integrity problems on...

Signal Integrity - Simplified

Eric Bogatin 2003

This book describes in the simplest possible terms, the signal integrity problems and the fundamental principles needed to understand how the physical design influences signal integrity. Most easily defined, signal integrity is all about how the physical design of the interconnects -- printed circuit board traces, connectors, IC packages and cables -- corrupt the perfect, pristine signals coming off the chips. The electrical properties of the interconnects play a key role in all electronic...

Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits

Behzad Razavi 2003

This textbook deals with the analysis and design of analog CMOS integrated circuits, emphasizing recent technological developments and design paradigms that students and practicing engineers need to master to succeed in today's industry. Based on the author's teaching and research experience in the past ten years, the text follows three general principles: motivate the reader by describing the significance and application of each idea with real-world problems; force the reader to look at...

The Design of CMOS Radio-Frequency Integrated Circuits

Thomas H. Lee 2003

This expanded and thoroughly revised edition of Thomas H. Lee's acclaimed guide to the design of gigahertz RF integrated circuits features a completely new chapter on the principles of wireless systems. The chapters on low-noise amplifiers, oscillators and phase noise have been significantly expanded as well. The chapter on architectures now contains several examples of complete chip designs that bring together all the various theoretical and practical elements involved in producing a...

The Art and Science of Analog Circuit Design


In this companion text to Analog Circuit Design: Art, Science, and Personalities, seventeen contributors present more tutorial, historical, and editorial viewpoints on subjects related to analog circuit design. By presenting divergent methods and views of people who have achieved some measure of success in their field, the book encourages readers to develop their own approach to design. In addition, the essays and anecdotes give some constructive guidance in areas not usually covered in...
