This course introduces principle of operation, features and characteristics of practical voltage and current feedback operational amplifiers. Topics covered include: DC errors, frequency response in open and closed loop, phase compensation, stability criterion, noise sources, signal to noise ratio, noise figure, and data sheets. Applications of the operational amplifiers such as instrumentation amplifiers, precision rectifiers, RC oscillators, active filters, and switched capacitors filters will be discussed as well.
