This is a course on the design and applications of operational amplifiers and analog
integrated circuits. This course introduces basic op-amp principles and show how the op-
amp can be used to solve a variety of application problems. Much attention is given to
basic op-amp configurations, linear and non-linear applications of op-amp and active filter
synthesis, including switched capacitor configurations. It also deals with oscillators,
waveform generators and data converters.
