Product Description


“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

This book is a goldmine of op-amp theory and practice. The balance between the two is a fine one to achieve and these authors have hit the nail on the head. No stone is left unturned when it comes to teaching the reader how to use these devices properly. Very good, up-to-date book that is value for money from the guys who actually design the devices in the first place - the horse's mouth.

HASH(0x977f7d44) out of 5 stars You'll have to tear it from my cold, dead hands... 16 Dec. 2004
By David Curtis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've used 3 editions of the author's Op Amp Cookbook over the last 15 years, and found it to be an invaluable source of practical designs, accompanied by solid descriptions of the underlying principles. Based on that experience, I expected this book to be good. I am by no means disappointed.

It isn't a cookbook, although it does include many useful concrete design examples. It is more of an applications problem-solving guide. I've often found that some of the most useful op amp design information is buried in specific device datasheets and application notes, and have often found myself wishing someone would extract all of those nuggets, organize them, fill in the gaps, and publish them. As I read through this book, I found many such nuggets (primarily derived from Analog Devices' datasheets and app notes), which I had previously regarded as hidden treasure, uncovered only by tedious slogging through numerous datasheets. This is not, however, a re-packaging of previously published app notes. The chapters are comprehensive, well-written, and well-integrated.

Those interested in audio applications may remember that the original edition of the author's Op Amp Cookbook contained an extremely useful chapter on audio circuits. In the second edition, this material was extracted and published in a separate book, which (unfortunately) went out of print and has become hard to find. You will be happy to note that the new Applications Handbook has excellent coverage of audio op amp applications and design principles.

HASH(0x96e1a1d4) out of 5 stars Also available free to download from Analog Devices 6 Dec. 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There is nothing I can add to what others have already said positively about this book. It is really good - one of the best in its field. I also recommend Analog Device's outstanding "Designer's Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers".

For those on a short budget, like me: you can download it for FREE from the Analog Devices website on a chapter by chapter base or zipped (17 MB), in PDF format. BTW, you can also download "Designer's Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers " for FREE from AD's website.

HASH(0x96e34210) out of 5 stars Excellent Reference: Technical and Historical 2 Aug. 2005
By J. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great textbook for electrical engineers and hobbyists with fundamental knowledge of op-amp operation. The text is easy to read and explains concepts that are understandable for both the inexperienced and experienced engineer and also gives an excellent historical treatment of op-amp evolution. The mathematics involved is concise and to the point. This text gives engineers tools to understand the op-amp beyond the ideal models presented in basic circuit theory and electronics courses given in undergraduate programs. To apply op-amps properly, you need to go beyond the simplistic assuptions - this book will help you given you have an understanding of basic electronics design and analysis. I highly recommend having this book on your shelf for a reference.

HASH(0x96d8f438) out of 5 stars A great reference book for anyone interested in op amps 20 Feb. 2006
By Frank Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great reference book. Starting with Op Amp Basics (chapter 1) and continuing on with Instrumentation amps, Op Amps used in data converters and signal conditioning, the book is full of valuable information. The book even covers PCB layout techniques and parasitic effects that become important in high speed systems and precision systems. There is also a history of the Op Amp which is interesting to read.

Anyone interested in analog circuit design in general, and op amps in particular will enjoy this book. It is a good reference for any engineer's bookshelf.

HASH(0x97001a74) out of 5 stars A must have for analog designers. 5 Jun. 2008
By Ronald Mancini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Walter has written another down-to-earth design book. This book contains much theory, but not at the expense of practical design information. A good read here profits the analog designer; so says an analog designer of 40 years experience.
