Now available, a series of ADI Technical books covering a wide range of design topics, from Practical Analog Techniques to Mixed Signal and DSP Design. These books have been written by the Applications Engineering Staff at Analog Devices, including well-known authors such as Walt Kester, Walt Jung, James Bryant and Hank Zumbahlen. Books are priced at $40.00 each. Also available at no cost is the second edition of "A Designer's Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers" by Charles Kitchin and Lew Counts.
The Circuit Designer’s Companion, Third Edition by Peter Wilson, 2012 Elsevier (Newnes), ISBN: 978-0080971384
One aspect of this book deserves mention right up front: it is not written for designers of integrated circuits (the main concern of many Analog Devices engineers). It’s about designing products big enough to see and hold, and about the properties of the many sorts of discrete and (small-scale) integrated components that are used in such designs. See the complete review.
Advanced Data Converters, by Gabriele Manganaro, Cambridge University Press, 2011, ISBN: 978-1-10700-557-0.
Advanced Data Converters offers a stimulating cornucopia of circuit techniques, ideas, and examples, profusely illustrated and supported with extensive documentation by some 416 references to the literature—a veritable catalog of design concepts. See the complete review.
Digital Media Processing: DSP Algorithms Using C, by Hazarathaiah Malepati, Newnes, 2010, ISBN 978-1-85617-678-1.
This book discusses various algorithms—related to the processing of data, signals, images, speech, audio, and video—that are used in present-day cutting-edge technologies—and the C simulation and implementation techniques to run them in real time on embedded processors. See the complete review.
Effective analog circuit design requires a strong understanding of linear devices. Linear Circuit Design Handbook bridges the gap between component theory and practical circuit design. Providing complete coverage of analog components and showing how to use them effectively, it serves as a useful reference for engineers involved in analog and mixed-signal design. See a picture and the Table of Contents. Read a sample chapter. Basic Linear Design seminar notes can be downloaded from the Analog Devices website.
A Designer's Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers - 3rd Edition, By Charles Kitchin and Lew Counts, 2006
Instrumentation amplifiers (in-amps) are used to amplify weak signals in the
presence of strong interference and noise. This

The Data Conversion Handbook is written for design engineers who routinely use data converters and related circuitry. Comprising Data Converter History, Fundamentals of Sampled Data Systems, Data Converter Architectures, Data Converter Process Technology, Testing Data Converters, Interfacing to Data Converters, Data Converter Support Circuits, Data Converter Applications, and Hardware Design Techniques, it may be the ultimate expression of product "augmentation" as it relates to data converters. The last chapter discusses practical issues, including common pitfalls and solutions related to the non-ideal properties of passive components.
The Data Conversion Handbook can be purchased from your favorite bookseller.
Analog-Digital Conversion seminar notes can be downloaded from the Analog Devices website.
Op Amp Applications Handbook comprises Op Amp Basics, Specialty Amplifiers, Using Op Amps with Data Converters, Sensor Signal Conditioning, Analog Filters, Signal Amplifiers, Hardware and Housekeeping Techniques, and Op Amp History. As the name implies, it covers the application of op amps, but does so on a broader scope. It also covers a host of closely related design topics, making it a formidable toolkit for the analog designer.
Op Amp Applications Handbook can be purchased from your favorite bookseller, or individual chapters of the original Op Amp Applications seminar notes can be downloaded from the Analog Devices website.
Digital signal processors are good at crunching numbers, and microcontrollers easily provide control functions, but how should you choose an embedded processor when you want to add audio and video signal processing to your system? How is memory allocated and managed for best performance? How must dataflow be optimized to take best advantage of a processor's limited resources? How can power consumption be optimized? Embedded Media Processing answers all of these questions and many more—and does so in an easy-to-read, enjoyable manner—giving readers the tools required to successfully implement embedded designs.

Mixed-Signal and DSP Design Techniques, edited by Walt Kester, Newnes, 2003, covers sampled data systems, choosing A/D and D/A converters for DSP applications, fast Fourier transforms, digital filters, selecting DSP hardware, interfacing to DSP chips, and hardware design techniques. This book explains signal processing hardware--how it works, how to interface to it, and how to design and debug it. Master the art and science of mixed-signal and DSP design with this informative and practical guide.
Evolution from Operational Amplifier to Data Amplifier, by Robert Demrow, Analog Devices, 09/1968
Philbrick Applications Manual for Computing Amplifiers for Modeling, Measuring, Manipulating, and Much Else, 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. A brief history of its origins.
