Operational Amplifiers and Linear Integrated Circuits is divided into two major sections. The first half of the book covers fundamentals and practical applications. Remaining chapters enable readers to explore an array of interesting and useful topics such as non-linear circuits, oscillators, regulators, integrators and differentiators, active filters, plus analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. Coverage is current and computer simulations via SPICE and Multi-SIM are integrated throughout to provide experiences similar to those encountered in industry. Readers will become quickly engaged by the conversational tone of this book. Fundamentals are stressed in order to set the reader up for success. For example, the first chapter covers the foundation material in differential amplifiers and Bode plots, two items essential for a thorough understanding of how operational amplifiers work. In addition, an entire chapter is devoted to the concept and application of negative feedback, an extremely important topic that other books frequently treat only lightly or gloss over entirely. Each chapter of Operational Amplifiers and Linear Integrated Circuits begins with a list of objectives, so readers can keep major concepts in mind, and concludes with a self-test designed to measure the reader's grasp of these concepts. And the book's broad yet deep content presents a wide range of practical circuits and applications in sufficient detail to ensure a thorough knowledge of the circuit or application.
