This book includes a total of 224 pages and published by Butterworth-Heinemann in 1991. ISBN of Trouble Shooting Analog Circuits is 0750691840. Following is the review of a customer stripped from Troubleshooting Analog Circuits. When things aren’t working in your circuits use this book to get you started on how to find WHY things aren’t working.
This book is a collection of essays originally published by the author, and a couple of other contributers in trade magazines. They in general consist of lists and explanations of problems and how to fix them. These lists are grouped by kinds of circuits. I would have liked to see more specifics on power supply problems and on Phase Locked Loops and other oscillators. Of particular use (at least to me) is the advice on equipping your bench. If you build huge boards this isn’t as valuable as if you build 100 – 200 component circuits. The author has an overly anti-Spice bias, but his cautions are generally worth remembering. (I once took a grad course on the internals of Spice, and another one on the internals of mechanical simulation programs – they all require that you understand the problem before you rely on the computer). Obviously large very inter-related circuit boards will require more computer aided design because of the sheer complexity. This book does tend to attribute a lot of problems in systems to heat, whereas my most typical problem is poor mechanical connections of some sort (bad connectors, solder joints, etc). I use this book as a reminder of what I need to be aware of when I have a problem.
A lot of the engineers at HP and elsewhere really like this book, and THEY are the analog design “water-walkers” that I truly respect.As a self-educated analog electronics designer and manufacturer, this is the book I use and recommend most. Everything in it is true. Everything in it is useful. Every page reminds you that the best test instrument is you brain. “Inspirational stuff” indeed! Total size of the textbook “Trouble Shooting Analog Circuits” is 11.2 MB.
