Synopses & Reviews
This book will help you design circuits that are reliable, have low power consumption and can be implemented in as small a size as possible, at the lowest possible cost. It bridges the gap between the theoretical and the practical by giving practical solutions using components that are available in the real world from component distributors. It does not just give a design with a transfer function but gives design tools based on that transfer function, getting you to a working circuit, bill of materials, and even board layout.
With this book you will learn:
Single op amp designs that get the most out of every amplifier.
Which specifications are of most importance to your design, enabling you to narrow down the list of amplifiers to just those few that are most suitable
Strategies for making simple tweaks to the design changes that are often apparent once a prototype has been constructed.
How to design for hostile environments extreme temperatures, high levels of shock, vibration, and radiation by knowing what circuit parameters are likely to degrade and how to counteract that degradation
Real world op amp selection guides which op amp is best for the job
Design circuits with real world component values not exact values that are impossible to actually order from suppliers.
Guidelines for developing the entire signal chain from specifications for the transducer, power supply, and data converter, which will help answer the difficult question of which op amp is the best one to use with a given data converter.
