This book enables design engineers to be more effective in designing discrete and integrated circuits by helping them understand the role of analog devices in their circuit design. Analog elements are at the heart of many important functions in both discrete and integrated circuits, but from a design perspective the analog components are often the most difficult to understand. Examples include operational amplifiers, D/A and A/D converters and active filters. Effective circuit design requires a strong understanding of the operation of these analog devices and how they affect circuit design. Comprehensive coverage of analog circuit components for the practicing engineer Market-validated design information for all major types of linear circuits Includes practical advice on how to read op amp data sheets and how to choose off-the-shelf op amps Full chapter covering printed circuit board design issues

George Clayton's Operational Amplifiers is a well established undergraduate text - offering full coverage of the subject for HNC/HND electronic engineering as well as first and second year degree modules. It has also proved popular in industry as a reference text. Having previously been fully revised by Steve Winder, this classic textbook covers all the latest developments in the field, matched to current degree module syllabuses in both the UK and USA. The introductory sections assume only a basic grounding in electronics, followed by more in-depth material to further the reader's understanding of the subject. Each chapter is followed by a set of exercises, enabling the reader to put the theory learnt into practice, with full answers provided at the back of the book. Appendices feature reproductions of manufacturers' data sheets, placing the concepts introduced in the text into a real-world context, as well as a comprehensive bibliography. This approach, combined with the book's easily accessible page layout and style, results in a highly student centred and comprehensive text. New, updated and expanded topics in the new edition include: bipolar, JFET and MOSFET transistors; voltage regulators; dielectric absorption on integrator, differentiator and S&H circuits; as well as FDNR and Gyrator filters. * A classic textbook revised and updated throughout for current courses * New expanded content to provide fully comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject * Ideal for 1st / 2nd year undergraduate courses
Linear IC Applications is about practical applications of linear IC circuits. Although most of the circuits are based on the ubiquitous operational amplifier, other devices are examined as well. The material in this book will allow you to design circuits for the applications covered. But more than that, the principles of design for each class of circuit are transferable to other projects that are similar in function, if not in detail. A fiction voiced by the less perceptive observer of the electronics world is that analog electronics, i.e. the domain of linear IC devices, is dead, and that digital electronics is taking over every task. While it is true that digital electronics is growing rapidly, and has already taken over many functions previously performed in analog circuits, that doesn't mean that analog electronics is ready to die. There are still jobs that are either best done in analog circuits, or are more cost- effective when done in analog circuits rather than computers. Many digital instruments, for example, require a relatively extensive analog subsystem in order to work properly. In fact, demand for analog electronics, and for people well versed in it, is increasing. There is a worldwide shortage of skilled personnel. This book addresses that shortfall and equips the reader to apply linear ICs in a wide range of settings. Joseph J. Carr is a prolific writer and working scientist in the field of radar engineering and avionics architecture. He has written over 25 books and regularly contributes to electronics magazines. Another recent Carr title, Linear Integrated Circuits, also published by Newnes, is a perfect companion to this designer's guide, providing as it does a primer and first reference on linear IC technology.
