The Amplifier in Practice

  • A. G. Martin
  • F. W. Stephenson


Integrated circuit amplifiers for general purposes are almost without exception of the differential input, single-ended output, voltage operational type discussed in section 5.9. Grounding one or other input results in a single input, inverting or non-inverting amplifier. Some applications were considered in sections 5.7 and 5.8, the beginning of chapter 6 and in chapter 8. Although straightforward construction of the circuits described will usually produce a working device, providing the frequency compensation is adequate, some attention paid to practical details will yield a better design. In this chapter some important details will be introduced and it will be shown how they influence circuit design.
