A companion volume to Analog Circuit Design, Volume I, this edition includes new application notes on power management, data conversion and signal conditioning circuit solutions, and an extensive circuit collection of reference designs.

Newnes Press, an imprint of Elsevier, today announced the release of Analog Circuit Design, Volume 2, Immersion in the Black Art of Analog Design by Bob Dobkin and Jim Williams. A companion volume to Analog Circuit Design: A Tutorial Guide to Applications and Solutions, this edition includes new application notes on power management, data conversion and signal conditioning circuit solutions, and an extensive circuit collection of reference designs. The content is based on the research and writing of analog design experts Bob Dobkin and the late Jim Williams, as well as industry experts Carl Nelson and Bob Widlar.

With the growth of digital systems, wireless communications, complex industrial and automotive systems, designers are being challenged to develop more sophisticated analog solutions. This in-depth source book of circuit design solutions supplies engineers with practical design techniques that focus on common analog challenges. The full support package includes online resources such as data sheets, design notes and LTspice® design simulation software tools from Linear Technology.

Bob Dobkin is a founder and Chief Technical Officer of Linear Technology Corporation. Prior to 1999, he was responsible for all new product development at Linear. Before founding Linear Technology in 1981, Dobkin was Director of Advanced Circuit Development at National Semiconductor for eleven years. He has been intimately involved in the development of high performance linear integrated circuits for over 30 years and has generated many industry standard circuits. Dobkin holds over 100 patents pertaining to linear ICs and has authored over 50 articles and papers. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Jim Williams, who worked for Linear Technology for nearly three decades, was a talented and prolific circuit designer and author in the field of analog electronics until his untimely passing in 2011. In nearly 30 years with Linear, he had the unique role of staff scientist with interests spanning product definition, development and support. Before joining Linear Technology in 1982, Williams worked in National Semiconductor’s Linear Integrated Circuits Group for three years. Williams was a legendary circuit designer, problem solver, mentor and writer with writings published as Linear application notes and EDN magazine articles. In addition, he was writer/editor of four books. Williams was named Innovator of the Year by EDN magazine in 1992, elected to Electronic Design Hall of Fame in 2002, and was honored posthumously by EDN and EE Times in 2012 as the first recipient of the Jim Williams Contributor of the Year Award.
