Planet Analog Editor's Note: You may think that there is little or nothing new to say about analog design, except that the new ICs keep getting better: more precise, reduced drift, and lower power dissipation.
This recently published book proves that is not the case. Edited by analog legend Bob Pease of National Semiconductor Corporation, Analog Circuits: World Class Design (472 pages, $39.95) has varied and insightful content provided by well-known, recognized analog experts Bonnie Baker, Richard S. Burwen, Sergio Franco, Phil Perkins, Marc Thompson, Jim Williams, and Steve Winder.
We are pleased to provide two complete chapters of the book:
Chapter 4: Finding the Perfect Op-Amp for your Perfect Circuit, by Bonnie Baker
Chapter 8: Noise: The Three Categories--Device, Conducted, and Emitted
, also by Bonnie Baker
