    Hi there,
    I am looking for a good OP Amp book. One that focusses more in depth on OP amp circuits and design.Most of the books like Sedra & Smith are really good but they don't focus on many of the applications,which is why I am here.

    Could you please look through your libraries and recommend your favorites (Especially the ones you found useful in your undergrad courses) to me?


    Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi Papabravo,
    Thanks for the response.I don't mean to sound ungrateful but could you also recommend another book. I am afraid that Op - Amp Cookbook is not yet available in my country.

    If your willing to splash some cash, buy The Art of Electronics. Although it is getting a little dated, a lot of the circuits (not just op amp circuits) are superbly explained. An added bonus for many is the lack of focus on the Maths involved; I know this is why a lot of people I know are not fond of Sedra and Smiths book.

    @thingmaker:
    Thank you. The book looks interesting.

    @Dave:
    I do have both the Art of Electronics and Sedra & Smith's book.Both books although extremely good, like any general electronics text book , focus only on the more popular op amp applications which is why I am looking for a book that focusses exclusively on Op amps and their applications.


    Thank you for all your responses.

    Although not a book, I find that NatSemi Op Amp Circuit Collection (AN31) is extremely useful. It doesn't have any op amp theory, only pages after pages of op amp circuits which are very useful if you need insight of what can be done with op amps.

    Vckay,

    Here is a treatise on operational amplifiers which provides a good foundation for individuals interested in learning about opamps.

    Burr-Brown OpAmp Handbook

    I'm not sure that they do. I know that there are certain restrictions on shipping abroad from Amazon.co.uk, but that may just be a UK thing.

    if you are looking for a book that focuses on details of an opamp... u can check out the book on opamp theory and application by tobey , grahame et al... if from the burr brown series.. so it should be similar to the burr brown opamp handbook pposted above
