..".A book that should be on the shelf of every digital or analog electronic-system designer." - Frank Goodenough, Electronic Design
This Handbook offers design engineers and managers immediately useful, meat-and-potatoes techniques for achieving design validation by analysis in an easy-to-read style. The book contains numerous useful and interesting
tips for electronics circuit designers. Examples of rectifier circuits, power supplies, digital timing, thermal analysis, grounding and layout, and EMI/noise control are examined in detail with fully worked-out numerical examples.
If you need to create reliable, cost-effective, optimized designs, The Design Analysis Handbook provides a practical framework for integrating quality into the design process from start to finish. The methodology used is called Worst Case Analysis Plus (WCA+), a design-validation tool that demands thoroughness and analytical thinking by the user.
A guide to assessing and validating circuit design, The Design Analysis Handbook presents processes and mathematical tools in a straightforward, real-world manner. Unique features of the approach include chapters on safety, bad science, and surviving high-pressure design projects.
N. Edward Walker is the president of Design/Analysis Consultants, Inc., based in Tampa, Florida. The Handbook is based on DACI's extensive experience in the design and analysis of highly-reliable electronic systems.

Industry Reviews

"This is a recommended book for any academic library and a must book for the personal libraries of design engineers." - E-Streams

"This handbook has three goals: 'provide a straight-forward, no-nonsense guide to practical design validation,' 'to help design engineers who may be neglecting their math skills to recapture the wonderful sense of satisfaction that results from truly understanding a design,' and 'to be used as a practical design assistant.' All three goals have been met in this concise and well-written book." - E-Streams
