For two-semester/three-quarter, upper-level courses in Electronic Circuit Design.A basic understanding of circuit design is useful for many engineers-even those who may never actually design a circuit-because it is likely that they will fabricate, test, or use these circuits in some way during their careers. This text provides a thorough and rigorous explanation of both analog and digital transistor-level circuit design with a focus on the underlying principles of how different circuits work-instead of relying completely on design procedures or "rules of thumb." In this way, students develop the intuition that is essential to understanding and solving design more
