About Of The Book :

Most books have a single introduction. This one has four. Why? Analog circuit design is a very “personalized” discipline. To be sure, everyone’s bound by the same physics and mathematics, but there’s no single “right way” for those tools to be applied to solve a problem. Practitioners of analog design are noted for their individuality. Three of the four introductions that follow are by acknowledged masters of analog art and deal with analog’s place in a world that seems overwhelmed by digital electronics. Each of those three authors gives a highly personal viewpoint that can’t be objectively proven “right” or “wrong,” but that’s the way it is in many aspects of analog design. The remaining introduction, which appears first, doesn’t directly deal with analog electronics at all. However, it does illustrate the “matrix of thought’‘ that so many successful analog designers bring to their efforts. is a way of looking at things. Dr. Calandra’s thoughts originally appeared in the January 1970 issue of “The Lightning Empiricist,” then published by Teledyne Philbrick Nexus, and is reprinted by permission of Teledyne Corporation. We don’t know if the student described ever became interested in analog electronics, but he clearly had all the necessary attributes of a good analog design engineer. The name of George Philbrick will be invoked several times in this book, and in each instance some awe and reverence are noticeable. This is because if the contemporary analog design has a founding father, it would have to be George Philbrick. Many of the top names in the field today either worked under or were influenced by him. Although he passed away several years ago, his wisdom is still relevant to many current situations. Here’s a sample from the October 1963 issue of “The Lightning Empiricist,” published by the company he founded, Teledyne Philbrick. We’re grateful for the company’s kind permission to reprint the following since it’s difficult to imagine a real guide to analog design without George Philbrick! Let’s face it: analog electronics aren’t very sexy these days. The announcement of a new microprocessor or high-capacity DRAM is what makes headlines in the industry and business press; no one seems to care about new precision op amps or voltage-to-frequency converters. Sometimes it seems as if digital electronics is the only place in electronics where anything’s going on. Not so, says Jim Williams, as he tells why analog electronics is more than still important-it’s unavoidable. Dan Sheingold’s essay originated as a letter to the editor of Electronic Engineering Il-times. In its original form (with a slightly different message); it appeared on December 4: 1989. Often electronics engineers draw clear distinctions between “analog electronics” and “digital electronics.” implying clear barriers between the two disciplines that only the very brave (or very foolish) dare cross. However, as Dan points out, the differences between them might not be quite what we think. Introductions are normally read before the rest of the book, and so should these. But you might want to return and read them again after you’ve finished this book. It’s likely that you might have a different reaction to them then than the one you’ll have now.
