Preface to Analog Circuit Design PDF

This is a weird book. When I was asked to write it I refused, because I didn’t believe anybody could, or should, try to explain how to do analog design.

Later, I decided the book might be possible, but only if it was written by many authors, each with their own style, topic, and opinions.

There should be an absolute minimum of editing, no subject or style requirements, no planned page count, no outline, no nothing!

I wanted the book’s construction to reflect its subject. What I asked for was essentially a mandate for chaos. To my utter astonishment the publisher agreed and we lurched hopefully forward.

A meeting at my home in February 1989 was well-attended by potential participants. What we concluded went something like this:

everyone would go off and write about anything that could remotely be construed as relevant to analog design.

Additionally, no author would tell any other author what they were writing about.

The hope was that the reader would see many different styles and approaches to analog design, along with some commonalities.

Hopefully, this would lend courage to someone seeking to do analog work. There are many very different ways to proceed, and every designer has to find a way that feels right.

This evolution of a style, of getting to know oneself, is critical to doing good design. The single greatest asset a designer has is self-knowledge.

Knowing when your thinking feels right, and when you’re trying to fool yourself. Recognizing when the design is where you want it to be, and when you’re pretending it is because you’re only human.

They should be made to feel comfortable experimenting and evolving their own methods. The risk in this book, that it will come across as an exercise in discord, is also its promise.

As it went together, I began to feel less nervous. People wrote about all kinds of things in all kinds of ways.

They had some very different views of the world. But also detectable were commonalities many found essential.

It is our hope that readers will see this somewhat discordant book as a reflection of the analog design process.
