The purpose of this oveNiew is to prcvide you with a perspective on where circuit analysis fits within the whole of circuit design. Even though this book focuses on circuil analysis, w€ try to provide opportud- ties for circuit design where appropriate. A11 engineering designs begin with a need, as shown in Fig. 1.4. This need may come from the desire to improve on an existing desig , or it may be something brand-new A careful assessment of the need results in design specifications, which are measumble characteristics of a proposed desigl. Once a design is proposed, the design sp€cifications allow us to assess whether or not the design actually meets the need. A concept for the design comes next. fhe concept derives ftom a com-
