Operational Amplifiers & Linear Integrated Circuits – The goal of this text, as its name implies, is to 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.
- Small Woodworking Projects by Editors of Fine Woodworking PDF
- Concrete Technology Theory and Practice PDF
- Power System Analysis by JC Das PDF
- Dynamics and Control of Electrical Drives PDF
- Introduction to Mechatronics and Measurement Systems PDF
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.)
There is also a lab manual for this textbook.

My name is Jim and I’m the resident dissident, programmer and author. I’ve been a college professor for many years teaching in the areas of electrical engineering technology, computer programming and the science of sound. I’m also a musician and an endurance athlete. I established dissidents in the late 1980s as a way to offer various software items that I created, figuring that other people might find them useful as well. Some of these have been commercial and some have been freeware. I also write a lot, including published college text books and lab manuals. Recently, the open educational resource movement has gained momentum (no doubt at least partly propelled by the rising costs of college tuition and texts).
