This text covers the theory and application of operational amplifiers and other linear integrated circuits. It is appropriate for Associate and Bachelors degrees programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering and similar areas of study. Topics include negative feedback, comparators, voltage amplifiers, summing and differencing amplifiers, high speed and high power devices, non-linear circuit applications, regulators, oscillators, integrators and differentiators, active filters and AD/DA conversion. A companion laboratory manual is available.
The companion laboratory manual features 22 separate exercises. It covers the theory and application of operational amplifiers and other linear integrated circuits. Exercises include discrete differential amplifier analysis; inverting, non-inverting and differential configurations; frequency response; slew rate; DC offset; OTA; oscillators; linear regulator; function synthesis; active filters; and integrators and differentiators.
