"Wilson (electrical and electronic engineering, U. of Southampton) revises a textbook and handbook written by Tim Williams and previously published in 1990 and 2004. Some of the technological details have changed in the two decades, he says, but most of the underlying principles remain the same. There is material here for anyone from bright-eyed students to grizzled veterans, though not always the same information. Among the topics are printed circuits, active components, analogy integrated circuits, electromagnetic compatibility, and general product design." --Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
From the Back Cover
A compendium of practical advice and pointers – a unique masterclass in practical product design that bridges the gap between theory and implementation
- An invaluable companion for circuit designers and practicing electronics engineers – gives best practices, design guidelines and engineering knowledge gleaned from years of experience
- Includes practical, real-world considerations for components, PCBs, manufacturability, reliability and cost, enabling engineers to design and troubleshoot faster, cheaper and more effectively
- Contains new material on design tools, high-speed circuits, variability and tolerances, noise, simulation methods, and testing
The third edition of this classic work on circuit design gives engineers the understanding and practical know-how to produce optimized, reliable, cost-effective electronic circuits. It bridges the gap between the theoretical learning that most university courses provide and the practical knowledge and application that comes from years of experience. Topics covered include analog and digital circuits, component types, power supplies and printed circuit board design, plus new coverage of the latest advances in electronics since the previous edition published.
The Circuit Designer’s Companion is ideal for Professional electronics design engineers, advanced amateur electronics designers, electronic engineering students and professors looking for a book with a real-world design outlook.

The reason why im giving it 3 stars rather than the 4 stars that it may deserve, is the amount of typos all over the book, out of the few worked out examples some formulas are clearly wrong, sometimes its just some letters that got "switched", sometimes it seems like the editor "copy-pasted" similar terms but forgot to update them with their corresponding values, sometimes in a formula a division symbol might be replaced with a product simbol, etc.. and sometimes the results are just plainly wrong. And in some cases even the ilustrations are wrong, for instance it will show an npn transistor when clearly a pnp was intended, all of these make you stare at a single page until you figure out where the mistake is, its like trying to find Waldo, electronics edition... Also, many of the diagrams (the ilustrations are ok) are not very clear.
This book reminds me a little bit about the Art of Electronics, but with a lot less content, a lot less math, and a lot less applications and examples.
Overall I would say this is a good book, an interesting read, but clearly a bit on the pricey side considering the amount of information. The shocking thing about it, is that the book is on its Third edition and all these typos are just brutally in your face...
My only knock is the PCB section being in millimeters instead of mils; it would help to have both in the design rule section. Yes I can easily convert units but it slows me up.
It is a good book to use as a backup when trying to convince coworkers of grounding and power distribution schemes. Yes the information is online but we know there are different design ideas online and this book is a good way to filter them.
I am going to use it immediately in my work.
