    • 12.1: SINUSOIDAL OSCILLATORS
      One of the major hazards involved in the application of operational amplifiers is that the user often finds that they oscillate in connections he wishes were stable. An objective of this book is to provide guidance to help circumvent this common pitfall. There are, however, many applications that require a periodic waveform with a controlled frequency, waveshape, and amplitude, and operational amplifiers are frequently used to generate these signals.

    • 12.3: ANALOG COMPUTATION
    • 12.4: ACTIVE FILTERS
    • 12.5: FURTHER EXAMPLES
      Successful design almost always involves combining bits and pieces, a concept here, a topology there, to ultimately arrive at the optimum solution. In this section we will see how some of the ideas introduced earlier are combined into relatively more sophisticated configurations. The three examples that are presented are all "real world" in that they reflect actual requirements that the author has encountered recently in his own work.
