Analog learning materials

Good textbooks and relevant published learning and teaching materials are excellent resources for both
educators and students. Here is a recommended list organized by technology topic to help supplement
today’s engineering learning environments. While some of these books may link back to TI technology,
we’ve recommended them because we believe they are good guides for instruction and learning. We do
not receive financial remuneration for any of these materials.

What's new and noteworthy?

A pocket reference of formulae for analog engineers

Download or order the Analog Engineer's Pocket Reference by op-amp experts Art Kay and Tim Green. The guide is a handy reference featuring commonly used board and system level design formulae. The guide covers key constants and conversions; discrete components; AC and DC analog equations; op-amp basic configurations; op-amp bandwidth and stability; sensors; PCB trace R, L, C; wire L, R, C; binary, hex and decimal formats; and A/D and D/A conversions.

Recommended material for circuit theory and design

Circuits, 3rd edition (2016)

by Fawwaz Ulaby (University of Michigan); Michel Maharbiz (University of California, Berkeley); and Cynthia Furse (University of Utah)

This textbook covers fundamental principles of circuit analysis and introduces students to the allied fields of science and engineering. It includes 32 technology briefs; includes application notes; and instructions to download NI Multisim and LabVIEW student edition software, as well as MathScript software. 

Analysis and Design of Elementary MOS Amplifier Stages (2013)

by Boris Murmann (Stanford University)

Fills the gap between general introductions and advanced graduate books to analog circuits. The book can be used in various classroom scenarios, including as an introduction to analog circuits in the junior or senior year of undergraduate study, or to prepare incoming graduate students for an advanced course sequence in analog IC design.  

The Art of Electronics, 3rd edition (2015)

by Paul Horowitz

An authoritative book on electronic circuit design featuring 90 oscilloscope screenshots illustrating the behavior of working circuits; dozens of graphs giving highly useful measured data of the sort that is often buried or omitted in datasheets but which you need when designing circuits; and 80 tables (listing some 1650 active components), enabling intelligent choice of circuit components by listing essential characteristics (both specified and measured) of available parts. 

Analog Circuit Design: Discrete and Integrated (2014)

by Sergio Franco (San Francisco State University)

The first three chapters emphasize the more traditional discrete design approach and are suited for a first course in electronics, typically at the junior (third year university) level. The remaining four chapters, while more in-depth, are also suited for a junior/graduate-level course for IC designers.
