Kularatna's new book describes modern component families and how to design circuit blocks using them. While much of this information may be available elsewhere, in Modern Component Families and Circuit Block Design it is integrated with additional design hints that are unique. The discussion covers most components necessary in an embedded design or a DSP-based real time system design. The chapter on modern semi-conductor sensors allows system designers to use the latest sensor ICs for real-world physical parameter sensing.
*Covers the most recent low-power components
*Written by an authority on power electronics
*Includes extensive illustrations and references
