What’s All This Bob Pease Stuff Anyhow?


Bob Pease in a Nutshell

Bob Pease in a Nutshell

If you’ve done any electronics hacking, designing, pondering, or frustrating, you may have googled your way to Bob Pease and one of his articles that follows the title format, “What’s all this XYZ Stuff, Anyways?” where XYZ is an arcane, important mystery of electrical engineering steeped in dogma, myth, and cloudy mystery. His M.O. is to blow all that fuzz away and leave clear understanding and core concepts. He’s one of those authors that make you feel smarter. Here are some of his articles from Electronic Design. They paywall many others, but they were nice enough to share some of the Best (by their reckoning) and the Control Systems ones are certainly of interest to me

What’s All This P-I-D Stuff, Anyhow?
What’s All This Double-Clutching Stuff, Anyhow?
What’s All This Negative Feedback Stuff, Anyhow?
What’s All This Spicey Stuff, Anyhow? (Part II)
Bob’s Mailbox: Audio Quality, A Crazy Rack, And The PE Exam
What’s All This Input Impedance Stuff, Anyhow?
What’s All This Current Limiter Stuff, Anyhow?

If you like watching him chat it up and seeing the demos, his videos by TI and others are all over youtube, which I am sure he could have replicated using 6 op amps and a pair of LEDs.
