Op – Amps and Linear Integrated Circuits Textbook by Ram Gayakwad for free. For one-semester courses in Op-Amps, Op-Amp Applications or Linear Integrated Circuits. This successful technology-based text supports a thorough understanding of a wide variety of operational amplifiers and integrated circuit applications. It combines the right blend of theory and practice to present a simplified and methodical way to design and develop students’ understanding of the differences between theoretical, practical, and simulated results in the analysis of op-amp circuits.


New – PSpice Simulation Examples and Problems – Added to most of the important chapters. Illustrates how many of the concepts presented in a given chapter can be simulated using the PSpice program and demonstrates step-by-step approaches to circuit simulation. Ex. New – Reorganized, more logical approach – Opens text with an introduction to op-amps and ends with IC system projects. Gives students a smoother and more methodical flow of information.

Ex New – Op-amps theory, experiments and simulation. Makes the material more meaningful, and effective for learning. Ex. Analysis and design approach. Serves students with both theory and practice as it relates to op-amps, most popular linear and lab tested circuits. Ex. An entire chapter on specialized integrated applications – Includes universal active and switched capacitor filters, phase-locked loop, 555 timer, voltage and switching regulators and power amplifiers. A complete chapter on integrated system projects-Includes an audio function generator, LED temperature indicator, digital dc motor speed control and appliance timer. Demonstrates the use of operational amplifiers with special purpose integrated circuits, in practical settings that serve a number of useful purposes. Ex. Focus on operational amplifier circuits e.g., filters, oscillators, detectors, clippers and sample-and-hold circuits. Introduces students to a collection of those commonly used. Ex Thorough discussion of various op-amp characteristics, circuit analysis, and design considerations. Provides students with a firm grasp of basic principles enabling them to adapt to changing technology as new devices appear on the market.

Ex. Chapter objectives. Presents students with an outline of important topics so that they can organize their chapter goals and studies. Ex. Chapter-end summaries and lists of questions. Enables students to review and check their understanding of material before moving on. Ex. Worked-out examples and chapter-end problems -In every chapter. Allows students to better understand how to perform desired operations and focus on design. Ex. Focus on practical and functional op-amp circuits. Provides students with a firm grasp of principles in practice op-amp circuits. Ex.
