Operational amplifiers are essential in modern electronics design, and are key in medical devices, communications technology, optical networks, and sensor interfacing. This book is an indispensable guide and reference for designing circuits that are reliable and have low power consumption, that are as small as possible with the lowest possible cost. This book breathes from every page the many years of experience, wisdom and expertise of the authors, giving a multitude of methods, techniques, and tricks to give engineers all that they need to optimize their analog electronic designs. All the design tools and components are from the world's leading manufacturers are covered, not just restricted to one manufacturer as with other books.
- A complete, cookbook style handbook for designing and building analog circuits
- A multitude of workable circuit designs that are ready to use, based on real-world component values from all the leading manufacturers, using components that are available from today's distributors
- A treasure trove of practical wisdom: strategies to tweak a design; guidelines for developing the entire signal chain and for designing in hostile environments; the specifications that are most important for a design, to name just a few
