Hans Camenzind is the famed designer of one of the most popular ICs known, the '555 timer chip. But that was then, this is now, and finally we're all the beneficiaries of Hans' fine new book. This tome has been freely-available online for a while now, so I've leafed through it and have appreciated what I've seen. Thankfully we can now purchase the printed book and read it at our leisure, in the bathroom (that's meant as a compliment) or out on the deck (try doing either of those with your laptop). My order just went in. :-) Now it can rest in a well-earned spot, my bookcase!

Hans' book has the meat we linear-IC-using Analog designers need to gnaw on: plenty of interesting and inspiring stuff, detailed understanding, good reference material, and as a bonus it's nicely illustrated, too. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
Very clear exposition crammed full of examples, reminiscent of my other favorite electronic design book, "The Art of Electronics", by Horowitz and Hill.

A very thorough survey of the field with lots of ideas. The circuit examples start simple and become more complex in each section, each new circuit slightly higher performance than the last, allowing you to grasp the fundamentals as well as to investigate improvements.

This book is an excellent transition for people who have worked on discrete analog designs who would like to learn more about analog design at the chip level.

This is a book that is worth reading. The author is a real world analog IC designer and his writing style and approach to the subject turns a tricky subject in a very interesting reading. The book is full of lots of insights that only someone with a real experience in the field can tell us. He uses an approach favouring circuit simulations through Spice to illustrate his points instead of the traditional mathematical only approach and this makes the difference, turning it in a easy and insightful reading. Highly recommended.

Hans has written an analog IC book that is interesting and practical. It reflects his long experience as an IC designer. He covers wide ranging areas of IC design and explains them in an intuitive manner. Creative IC design starts with an intuitive understanding not with cumbersome formulas. Hans expects designers to use a circuit simulator to work out the detail (just as real IC designers do). If any, his design and redesign of 555 timer are definitely worth reading. I'm thankful to Hans for sharing his IC design insight.

I found this book to be a fast and enjoyable read (especially for an engineering text). The circuits are still applicable. His historical asides help make it (dare I say) a fun read. Combine that with a reasonable price tag, and you've got a good book.

This is a good reference book for practicing engineers and students alike. I particularly liked the mix of BJT and FET circuits in the topics discussed. Even though BJTs are not common in IC design anymore, the ideas are clearly conveyed. I would recommend this book as a compendium for good design practices from hand calculation to layout.
