New publication; “Op Amps for Everyone” 4th Ed.

August 12, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Newly published is the fourth edition of this guide, by Bruce Carter, to selecting and using op amps.

According to the publishers, “This book is an indispensable guide and reference for designing circuits that are reliable, have low power consumption, and are as small and low-cost as possible. Operational amplifiers are essential in modern electronics design, and are used in medical devices, communications technology, optical networks, and sensor interfacing. This book is informed by the authors' years of experience, wisdom and expertise, giving engineers all the methods, techniques and tricks that they need to optimize their analogue electronic designs. With this book you will learn single op amp designs that get the most out of every amplifier, as well as which specifications are of most importance to your design, enabling you to narrow down the list of amplifiers to those few that are most suitable. Additional features include strategies for making simple "tweaks" to the design - changes that are often apparent once a prototype has been constructed, and 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.” The publication is available as a paperback or e-book.
