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.

Linear Circuit Design Handbook, Edited by Hank Zumbahlen, Newnes, February 2008, ISBN 978-0-7506-8703-4

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 hands-on applications book covers both in-amps and difference amplifiers (diff-amps), and features all of the latest Analog Devices products. Completely updated, it covers a wide range of topics, including: in-amp design basics, selecting between an in-amp and a diff-amp, ac-input coupling, input protection basics, reducing RFI rectification errors, in-amp and diff-amp applications circuits, matching in-amp circuits to modern ADCs, and understanding in-amp data sheet specifications. The online version contains many helpful web links, quickly connecting readers to related sites for information such as product data sheets and application notes.

The Data Conversion Handbook, Edited by Walt Kester, Newnes, 2005, ISBN 0-7506-7841-0

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.

Analog-Digital Conversion, Edited by Walt Kester, Analog Devices, Inc. 2004, ISBN 0-916550-27-3

Analog-Digital Conversion presents a comprehensive set of notes presented in a recent Analog Devices seminar series on data converters. In a digital world, A/D and D/A conversion is essential to translate between analog real-world physical variables and the abstract 1s and 0s of digital processing. The book offers a hint of its breadth, as well as its orientation to practical design: 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.

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, Edited by Walt Jung, Newnes, 2005, ISBN 0-7506-7844-5

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, Edited by Walt Jung, Analog Devices, Inc. 2002, ISBN 0-916550-26-5

This 970-page volume may well be the ultimate op amp book. It is brimming with application circuits, handy design tips, historical perspectives, and in-depth looks at the latest techniques to simplify designs and improve their performance. But this is more than just the last word on applications. A brief but fascinating History section outlines the early development of the feedback amplifier, starting with H. S. Black’s invention of seventy years ago—and provides priceless insights into the application needs, technological developments, and creative personalities that drove the many generations of op-amp designs.

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.

Embedded Media Processing, by David Katz and Rick Gentile, Newnes, 2005, ISBN 0-7506-7912-3

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. Click here for the complete review. 

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.

Mixed-Signal and DSP Design Techniques can be purchased from your favorite bookseller, or individual chapters of the original seminar notes can be downloaded from the Analog Devices website.

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.
