Reseña del editor
This textbook is intended for EE majors envisioning industrial careers in analog electronics. Positionssuch as analog IC designers, product/process/reliability engineers, test/design-for-test engineers, andanalog applications/customer-support/marketing engineers are always in strong demand. The textbook isthe result of my teaching experience at San Francisco State University, where I have contributed to theformation of many hundreds of students now gainfully employed in Silicon Valley in a wide range ofanalog positions. Here are three important features of my book:
- Both bipolar and CMOS technologies are covered. While digital electronics is dominated by CMOStechnology, analog electronics relies on CMOS as well bipolar technology, the latter being thetechnology of choice in high-quality analog circuits as well as an indispensable part of BiCMOStechnology.
- Both discrete and integrated designs are covered. Though nowadays the ultimate form of an analogsystem is likely to be of the integrated-circuit type, testing and applications often require ancillaryfunctions such as conditioning and interfacing that are best realized with ad-hoc discrete designs.(Anyone familiar with the work by recognized leaders in analog applications/testing/instrumentationlike Jim Williams and Robert Pease will agree to this.) In this respect, BJTs are available in a wideselection of off-the-shelf discrete types to serve a variety of needs. Moreover, for pedagogicalreasons it is convenient to cover simple discrete circuits before tackling the more complex integratedcircuits.
- Semiconductor theory is presented in sufficient depth to closely reflect the daily needs of practicingengineers in industry. Every analog function is inextricably rooted on a physical phenomenon, soanalog engineers, particularly IC designers and product/process/reliability engineers, need to beconversant with the physical world of semiconductors in order to function optimally.

A lot of textbooks will spend too much time on theory and not enough practical application. This book has a good balance of the two and gives many examples of practical circuits that can be directly applied in real designs while also going into depth about semiconductor physics. The chapters and homework problems focus on individual characteristics of circuit behavior and make simplifications rather than trying to overload the student with all the different phenomenons at the same time. This makes it much easier to understand the highly complicated behavior of semiconductor circuits. Everything is covered, from DC biasing to frequency analysis, negative feedback and noise.
In the IC design portion of the book, in the same fashion simplifications are used to focus on individual blocks of transistors. An intimidating IC schematic becomes a lot less frightening when each individual block is analyzed, understood and then put together.
There is a wealth of knowledge in this book and it is a valuable addition to any electronics enthusiast. I suggest googling Sergio Franco and taking a look at the detailed table of contents.
Each of first few chapters (Diodes, BJTs, and MOSFETs) begin with a very brief and relevant history/overview on the device. The author then spends ample time on basic semiconductor device physics, building a framework for a more "nuts and bolts" feel for the varied device behavior. Basic operation is covered next, strongly accompanied by PSpice plots (often multiple plots to show different aspects of the same phenomena) to provide further insight into the operating modes and regions of each device. Finally (about the last 1/3 of each chapter), typical applications are covered with example circuits, fairly thorough calculations, along with PSpice simulated results.
Regarding the later chapters (4-7)--from what I've read, provide a well-rounded introduction to discrete design (or monolithic design from an integrated circuit perspective). The basic building blocks (diff pairs, current mirrors, push-pull stages, etc.) are covered, with particular attention given to their operational nuances and interfacing impedances--both clearly important if one is to develop a sense for performance of individual and interconnected sub-circuits in a system (or an IC).
It's apparent that Franco strives to develop in the reader a qualitative feel and broad understanding of analog circuit design. That being said, as with any subject (but perhaps more so for electronics), the reader is expected to meet the author halfway, and work to fuel the fire that has been kindled. To this end, Franco has included a fairly large number of well-thought, illustrative, exercises and end-of-chapter problems for the reader to grapple with. I highly encourage this for the beginning student--if you aim to be strong in analog electronics you'll want to wrestle with these problems until your results agreeably match simulation. This subject is certainly learn-by-doing (is there really any better way?). Also for the beginning student, make sure you've a solid understanding of linear circuit concepts (Ohm's law, Kirchoff's Laws, Thevenin/Norton, Superposition, etc.) and electrostatics. As always, basic physics governs all, and you'll be lost without a firm grip on it.
In summary, I highly recommend the book. It's a superb tool (with the right approach) for the budding analog student and an excellent resource for the more seasoned engineer.
This is a book I would recommend over other texts such as Grey and Meyer.
I bought this book when it came out, to satisfy a renewed interest in analog circuits, in my current work. It has been a welcome and refreshing re-introduction to the important concepts. No light bedside reading here! Rather, it has helped me address problems I face with analog circuitry in my role as software programmer (for automated test) and mechanical component integrator (signal conditioning).
Franco's writing is very clear, and immediately engaging. I have recommended this book to others I work with.
