The Darker Side

A reference book by Robert Lacoste, founder and director of Alciom was published in October 2009 by Elsevier/Newnes : Practical Applications for Electronic Design Concepts from Circuit Cellar

Robert Lacoste’s The Darker Side column has quickly become a must read among Circuit Cellar devotees. His column provides readers with succinct theoretical concepts and practical applications on topics as far reaching as digital modulation to antenna basics. Difficult concepts are demystified as Robert shines a light on complex topics within electronic design. This book collects sixteen Darker Side articles that have been enriched with new, exclusive content from the author. An intro into The Darker Side will give examples of material that can enhance and optimize the way you design. A Scilab tutorial along with Scilab software and all project material will be included with this package so that all projects can be tackled hands-on. Bonus Circuit Cellar content will be included on the CD for FREE! It’s time to stop being afraid of the dark, let this book easily guide you through the time-draining, problematic elements of your application design.

Audience : Electrical and Electronics Engineers; Electronics Designers; System Engineers; Hardware Engineers; High-level Hobbyists and Students

Available from Elsevier or Amazon

« I have read and used much of the material in Roberts book. I recommend it as required reading by all engineers. I have verified the accuracy and content of the FIR filters and use of Scilab for the digital modulations. Robert is at the top of World Class Engineers, especially for those who apply this work into practice every day. Thanks Robert. »

« It’s refreshing when the content of a book doesn’t treat you like a child. I’m going to be re-reading this book for a long time. This author definitively knows circuit design. I won’t be skimming through this one.”

Electronic Eco design

Robert Lacoste, Founder and Director of ALCIOM is, together with Michel Robiolle (Captronic) and Xavier Vital (Codde/Veritas), co-author of a reference book on ecodesign, published by Dunod in March 2011.

Les concepteurs de produits qui comportent de l’électronique ont, dans les choix qu’ils font en amont, un rôle majeur à jouer sur la réduction de l’impact environnemental des produits. Cet ouvrage a pour ambition de répondre à leurs attentes, qu’ils soient ingénieurs, décideurs dans les entreprises, fabricants de cartes électroniques ou bien enseignants et étudiants dans les métiers de l’électronique ou de l’électrotechnique.
Il propose, au travers de nombreux exemples, des repères et des méthodes, et explique l’importance d’une approche globale sur tout le cycle de vie du produit.
Les réglementations qui imposent des règles d’écoconception mais aussi les initiatives sectorielles, véritables normes en application, y sont aussi largement présentées.Titre : L’écoconception électronique
