Op Amp Applications Handbook

Front Cover
Newnes, 2005 - Technology & Engineering - 878 pages
In the past several years, many advances have been made in operational amplifiers and the latest op amps have powerful new features, making them more suitable for use in many products requiring weak signal amplification, such as medical devices, communications technology, optical networks, and sensor interfacing. Walt Jung, analog design guru and author of the classic IC OP-Amp Cookbook (which has gone into three editions since 1974), has now written what may well be the ultimate op amp reference book. As Jung says, "This book is a compendium of everything that can currently be done with op amps." This book is brimming with up-to-date application circuits, handy design tips, historical perspectives, and in-depth coverage of the latest techniques to simplify op amp circuit designs and improve their performance.

There is a need for engineers to keep up with the many changes taking place in the new op amps coming onto the market, and to learn how to make use of the new features in the latest applications such as communications, sensor interfacing, manufacturing control systems, etc.. This book contains the answers and solutions to most of the problems that occur when using op amps in many different types of designs, by a very reputable and well-known author. Anything an engineer will want to know about designing with op amps can be found in this book.

*Seven major sections packed with technical information

*Anything an engineer will want to know about designing with op amps can be found in this book

*This practical reference will be in great demand, as op amps is considered a difficult area in electronics design and engineers are always looking for help with it
