Analog Devices Press Release - February 8, 2011
Analog Devices Educational Webcast to Focus on Basics of Op Amp Operation
- The second in ADI’s 12-part online training series, ‘Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors
to Help Engineers Optimize
Signal Processing Applications,’ airs February 9.
NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices,
Inc. (ADI), a world leader in semiconductors for high-performance signal processing applications, will air “The Op
Amp” webcast on February 9, 2011. The 60-minute webcast will explain the different types of operational
amplifiers, their basic function and describe how engineers can select the right op amp for their circuit design.
This webcast is the second in a monthly, 12-part educational series by Analog Devices called the “Fundamentals of
Designing with Semiconductors for Signal Processing Applications.”
Presented by David Kress, ADI’s
director of technical marketing and a veteran analog applications engineer, “The Op Amp” webcast also will
investigate the difference between voltage-feedback and current-feedback amplifiers, explain offset, trim,
bandwidth and other specifications that impact amplifier operation and explore how engineers can maximize circuit
performance with the right op amp.
Fundamentals Webcast Series
The Fundamentals webcast series is offered monthly throughout 2011 and covers
signal chain design challenges from signal capture to conditioning, conversion and processing. Each is followed by
a Q&A with a technical expert. Future online courses will discuss other elements of the semiconductor signal
- March: Beyond the Op Amp – This webcast examines when to use various amplifiers and how to select them. Op
amps are the most common building block, but there are many other amps that are better suited for certain
applications and circuits, such as the difference amp, instrumentation amp, log amp, and others.
