Promotional Information

* a complete guide to an often overlooked but vital aspect of circuit design * uniquely important to analog design considerations - now of increasing importance in communications technologies * the ONLY book, with a novel, integrated approach, covering this field


"Even if you are more likely to buy than build your own, this book explains what you need to look for." - EDN, September 2005 "... You'll benefit from reading Linden T. Harrison's book. I've never seen a book devoted to these workhorse and often overlooked circuits. Current Sources & Voltage References teaches you how semiconductor devices work and how to use them to design stable voltage and current sources. The author also gives you some history about the people that designed the early devices and circuits." - Test & Measurement World, October 1, 2005
