Franco's "Design with Operational Amplifiers and Analog Integrated Circuits, 3e" is intended for a design-oriented course in applications with operational amplifiers and analog ICs. It also serves as a comprehensive reference for practicing engineers. This new edition includes enhanced pedagogy (additional problems, more in-depth coverage of negative feedback, more effective layout), updated technology (current-feedback and folded-cascode amplifiers and low-voltage amplifiers) and increased topical coverage (current-feedback amplifiers, switching regulators and phase-locked loops).
The author very effectively blends rigorous theory with real-life applications. His emphasis on the physical picture helps students develop practical insight, a key to making sound design decisions. His descriptive and straightforward writing style flows with ease for the reader.
Approximately 175 carefully worked examples scattered throughout the text, along with over 550 ingenious and thought-provoking end-of-chapter problems, help students develop an effective problem-solving methodology as well as sound engineering judgment.
The topical and pedagogical organization is designed to take the reader from the simple to the more sophisticated, using a "building block" approach to tackle more advanced systems and concepts.
The vast selection of topics, thorough analysis of practical circuits and cleverly presented applications, prepare the student for employment in the real world and also serve as a precious reference for the practicing engineer.
The extensive use of PSpice throughout the book reflects current industrial practices.
