ELECTRONIC PHYSICAL DESIGNis an excellent text for readers learning how to improve the physical design of products. The focus of the book is on how to take a circuit, which has been successfully simulated, from the design stage to the production stage. The book uses a unique approach, by using an example of each physical design consideration and applying it to the design of a "boom box:" a portable, personal stereo system complete with radio, tape player, CD player, and speakers. In this way, readers can readily grasp the concepts and understand how they apply to the specific circuit being presented. The book covers the fundamentals as well as more advanced topics: a brief introduction of electronics safety issues many types of electronic components fixed and variable resistors capacitor types diode and transistor packages the process by which circuits are built how to make a high-quality product wise physical design decision making how vibration, shock, humidity, and dust affect designLunt, Barry M. is the author of 'Electronic Physical Design', published 2004 under ISBN 9780130943873 and ISBN 0130943878.
