Applications Manual for Computing Amplifiers for Modeling, Measuring, Manipulating, and Much Else, George A. Philbrick Researches, 1966.

A classic publication by George A. Philbrick Researches on the basics of operational amplifiers. Includes a discussion of using op amps as computational elements in analog computers. Contributors include Dr. Peter Hansen, Bruce Seddon, Robert Malter, and Bob Pease. Edited by Dan Sheingold, 1966. Now out of print, it has been rendered online by its original editor and the staff at Analog Devices, Inc. © 2004. In 1965 early IC op amps lacked the support of suitable texts to educate, inform, and stimulate design engineers. In response, George A. Philbrick Researches, Inc. devised this Applications Manual, using Ted Gams's unique modular approach to apportioning text and graphics to individual topics. It was eagerly adopted and is fondly remembered by designers of an earlier generation; its ideas still remain fresh several generations later.
