DescriptionThe goal of this text/ as its name implies/ is to allow the reader to become proficient in the analysis and design of circuits utilizing modern linear ICs. It progresses from the fundamental circuit building blocks through to analog/digital conversion systems. The text is intended for use in a second year Operational Amplifiers course at the Associate level/ or for a junior level course at the Baccalaureate level. In order to make effective use of this text/ students should have already taken a course in basic discrete transistor circuits/ and have a solid background in algebra and trigonometry/ along with exposure to phasors. Calculus is used in certain sections of the text/ but for the most part/ its use is kept to a minimum. For students without a calculus background/ these sections may be skipped without a loss of continuity. (The sole exception to this being Chapter Ten/ Integrators and Differentiators/ which hinges upon knowledge of calculus.) There is also a lab manual for this textbook.
