||The operational amplifier is the most important linear integrated circuit encountered in modern electronic systems. It represents a basic 'building block' of the analog circuit field. Operational amplifiers are capable of performing a wide variety of linear and non-linear signal-processing functions. The operation and applications of the op-amp will be approached from the viewpoint of the external terminals. The primary emphasis throughout the course is on developing the student's facility for analyzing, modeling, and designing a variety of circuits. The method of instruction is lecture, problem solving and discussion complemented with laboratory experiments. Laboratory experiments are scheduled on every alternate week for two periods.
