Operational amplifiers play a vital role in modern electronics design. 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.

The Op Amp Applications Handbook may well be the ultimate op amp reference book available. This book is brimming with up-to-date application circuits, valuable design tips, and in-depth coverage of the latest techniques to simplify op amp circuit designs, and improve their performance. As an added bonus, a selection on the history of op amp development provides an extensive and expertly researched overview, of interest to anyone involved in this important area of electronics.

Key Features

  • 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

  • Op Amp Applications Handbook is a practical reference for a challenging engineering field.


Electronics engineers and audio engineers; electronics technicians; engineering students; electronics hobbyists

“This practical handbook not only teaches the basic fundamentals of op amps, it also covers various op amp application areas in great detail. This is not a cookbook of circuit designs, but rather a book to learn how the circuit and amplifiers actually function. Circuit designers, electrical engineers, instrumentation engineers, or electrical engineering students, will find this to be a very useful and practical reference book on op amps and their application.” — IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine “Although the book features contributions from a number of sources over many years, it does not fall into the discontinuity trap like so many compilations. It is very structured and readable, and the information flows smoothly from one chapter to the next - a tribute to the editor, Walt Jung. This book is a thorough study of operational amplifiers and covers in depth just about every application you can think of. It replaces half a shelf of my hitherto favorite texts and it is destined to become a standard work. I can heartily recommend it.” — John W. Wood, Electronics World, December 2005
