Dr. Middlebrook’s original course “Structured
Analog Design” has been available for several years as the “Technical Therapy”
DVD ROM with Owner’s Manual (the “Old course”). His New
Structured Analog Design Course (the
“New course”) has been
developed to near its final asymptotic form in 20 presentations over the last 2˝
years.
The New course incorporates most of the Old
course, plus his recent work on the General Feedback Theorem, reconstructed to
expose the Extra Element Theorem (EET), the Chain Theorem (CT), and the General
Feedback Theorem (GFT) as special cases of the Dissection Theorem.
Here are some details about the topic structure of the New course.
The first 8 chapters, and Chapter 10, are essentially the same as the Old
course, except that Chapter 6 is an expansion of finding sums and differences of
factored pz expressions, a valuable step in combining the results of several
stages.
Chapter 9 begins the new material,
introducing the Dissection Theorem and its special case the Chain Theorem (CT)
Chapters 11 through 13 continue the
new material.
Chapters 14  18 are applications of all the previous DOA methods.
Chapter 14 shows how you get the "wrong" results when
you don't choose the "right" injection configuration.
Chapter 15 shows how nonidealities ignored in the
conventional singleloop model can be incorporated in an extra term in the
formula, which predicts a drastically different step response from a
highfrequency IC feedback amplifier example.
Chapter 16 is a real designoriented
example of how to get the proper response for a Darlington configuration, and
features the CT. This is slightly different from the GFT CD, where the same
example was treated by the GFT.
Chapter 17 is the classic switching regulator input filter problem,
illustrating the use of the EET.
Chapter 18 shows how a currentprogrammed feedback loop in a switching
regulator can be represented by a closedloop equivalent circuit.
Throughout, the Intusoft ICAP/4 GFT Template is used to
implement the Dissection Theorem and all three special cases: CT, EET. and GFT.
