Electronic Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Electronic Filter Simulation & Design
by Giovanni Bianchi

Electronic Filter Simulation & Design shows you how to apply simulation methods and commercially available software to catch errors early in the design stage and streamline your design process.

Using 150 detailed illustrations, this hands-on resource examines cutting-edge simulation methods for lumped passive filters…active RC filters…low-pass and band-stop distributed filters…high-pass and band-pass distributed filters…high-frequency filters…discrete time filters…and much more.

The book also contains a skills-building CD with files for major case studies covered in the text, together with demo versions of Mathcad and SIMetrix, so that you can work the examples and adapt them to their own projects.
