My colleague Patrick Mannion wrote an excellent blog over on EDN.com discussing the recently released book edited by Bob Dobkin and the late Jim Williams. You can read it here.
A quick summary: Bob Dobkin will be at the San Jose Convention and Visitors Center today (April 23) as part of Design West. He will be signing copies of Analog Circuit Design at 5:00 p.m. in the UBM Tech Lounge.
Here is a bit of what Patrick wrote about the book:
[In 2011, Jim wrote] “Analog Circuit Design, Volume 1, A Tutorial Guide to Applications and Solutions,” edited by Bob Dobkin, Linear Technology's founder and chief technology officer, and Jim Williams.
This was quickly followed up this year by the release of, “Analog Circuit Design, Volume 2: Immersion in the Black Art of Analog Design,” again edited by Dobkin and Williams (compiled “in memory of Jim Williams, a poet who wrote in electronics.”)
To celebrate the art and the work, we’ll be hosting a special book-signing event of both these two latest volumes by Bob Dobkin himself on Tuesday, from 5 to 6 pm at DESIGN West in San Jose. Join us for beer, snacks, and a special 50% discount on the books for the event, courtesy of publisher Elsevier — all at the UBM Tech lounge on the main concourse in the McEnery Convention Center.
This should be a most pleasant time — and a chance to grab a great book at an excellent price.
