For courses such as Electronic Manufacturing Processes, Electronic Physical Design, Circuit Board Design, and Electronic Prototyping. Useful as a reference for both the theory and practice of electronic physical design. This text addresses the choices to be made at the IC level, the IC package level, and the circuit board level. It then discusses the choices between the many types of resistors, capacitors, connectors, and transistor packages. Finally, this text addresses the concepts involved in building high-quality products, such as robust design, heat vibration, shock, dust, and humidity.show more

Back cover copy

ELECTRONIC PHYSICAL DESIGN is an excellent text for readers learning how to improve the physical design of products. The focus of the book is on how to take a circuit, which has been successfully simulated, from the design stage to the production stage. The book uses a unique approach, by using an example of each physical design consideration and applying it to the design of a "boom box: " a portable, personal stereo system complete with radio, tape player, CD player, and speakers. In this way, readers can readily grasp the concepts and understand how they apply to the specific circuit being presented. The book covers the fundamentals as well as more advanced topics: a brief introduction of electronicssafety issuesmany types of electronic componentsfixed and variable resistorscapacitor typesdiode and transistor packagesthe process by which circuits are builthow to make a high-quality productwise physical design decision makinghow vibration, shock, humidity, and dust affect designshow more
