**About Of the Book:**

"Operational Amplifiers & Linear Integrated Circuits: Theory and Application" is a textbook that provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and applications of operational amplifiers and linear integrated circuits. The book is written by James M. Fiore, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.

The book covers a range of topics related to operational amplifiers and linear integrated circuits, including the fundamentals of op-amp circuits, circuit analysis techniques, feedback amplifiers, filters, and active circuits. It also includes chapters on digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, and practical considerations in op-amp circuits such as noise and thermal effects.

The book is written in a clear and concise manner and is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students in electrical and electronic engineering. It includes numerous examples and exercises throughout the text, as well as practical design problems to help students apply the concepts they have learned.

Overall, "Operational Amplifiers & Linear Integrated Circuits: Theory and Application" is a highly regarded textbook in the field and is widely used as a reference by engineers and technicians in the industry.

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.)

In writing this text, I have tried to make it ideal for both the teacher and the student. Instead of inundating the

student with page after page of isolated formulas and collections of disjunct facts and figures, this text relies on

building a sound foundation first. While it may take just a little bit longer to “get into” the operational amplifier

than a more traditional approach, the initial outlay of time is rewarded with a deeper understanding and better

retention of the later material. I tried to avoid creating formulas out of thin air, as is often done for the sake of

expediency in technical texts. Instead, I strove to provide sufficient background material and proofs so that the

student is never left wondering where particular formulas came from, or worse, coming to the conclusion that

they are either too difficult to understand completely, or are somehow “magic”.

The text can be broken into two major sections. The first section, comprised of Chapters One through Six, can

be seen as the foundation of the operational amplifier. Here, a methodical, step by step presentation is used to

introduce the basic idealized operational amplifier, and eventually examine its practical limitations with great

detail. These chapters should be presented in order. The remaining six chapters comprise a selection of popular

applications, including voltage regulation, oscillators, and active filters, to name a few. While it is not

imperative that these chapters be presented in the order given (or for that matter, that they all be covered), the

The present arrangement will probably result in the most natural progression. Treat these chapters as application

reference material and shape the presentation to your needs.

There are a few points worth noting about certain chapters. First, Chapter One presents material in decibels,
bode plots, and the differential amplifier, which is the heart of most operational amplifiers. This chapter may be
skipped if your curriculum covers these topics in a discrete semiconductor or circuit analysis course. In this
case, it is recommended that students scan the chapter in order to familiarize themselves with the nomenclature
used later in the text. As part of the focus on fundamentals, a separate chapter on negative feedback (Chapter
Three) is presented. This chapter examines the four basic negative feedback connections that might be used with
an operational amplifier, and details the action of negative feedback in general. It stresses the popular series parallel (VCVS or non-inverting voltage amplifier) form to show how bandwidth, distortion, input impedance,
etc. are affected. Chapter Six presents a variety of modern special purpose devices for specific tasks, such as
high load current, programmable operation, and very high speed. An extensive treatment of active filters is
given in Chapter Eleven. Unlike many texts which use a “memorize this” approach to this topic, Chapter Eleven
strives to explain the underlying operation of the circuits, yet it does so without the more advanced math
requirement of the classical engineering treatment. The final chapter, Chapter Twelve, serves as a bridge
between the analog and digital worlds, covering analog to digital and digital to analog conversion schemes.
Please bear in mind that entire books have been written on the topics of active filters and analog/digital systems.
Chapters Eleven and Twelve are designed as solid introductions to these topics, not as the final.
