Section 2.6 and 2.8 of chapter two briefly discussed the core building block, and an early version, of a linear operational amplifier. A discussion of this nature is geared more toward integrated circuit designers. As application designers and engineers, our attentions focus more on the external terminal behavior of the block than the internal working of the device. We therefore direct our main theme of the current chapter to many key concepts regarding the former.
