Op Amp Applications Handbook is another book on the operational amplifi er, or op amp. As the name
implies, it covers the application of op amps, but does so on a broader scope. Thus it would be incorrect to
assume that this book is simply a large collection of app notes on various devices, as it is far more than that.
Any IC manufacturer in existence since the 1960s has ample application data on which to draw. In this case,
however, Analog Devices, Inc. has had the benefi t of applications material with a history that goes back
beyond early IC developments to the preceding...
The LM135 series are precision, easily-calibrated, integrated
circuit temperature sensors. Operating as a 2-terminal zener,
the LM135 has a breakdown voltage directly proportional to
absolute temperature at +10 mV/°K. With less than 1W dynamic
impedance the device operates over a current range
of 400 μA to 5 mA with virtually no change in performance.
When calibrated at 25°C the LM135 has typically less than
1°C error over a 100°C temperature range. Unlike other sensors
the LM135 has a linear output....
An ion-selective electrode (ISE) is an example of an electrochemical sensor utilizing the principle of potentiometry, or measurement of the cell potential (i.e., ISE against a standard reference electrode) at near-zero current. Under these conditions, the boundary potential at the ISE–solution interface is governed by the laws of electrochemical thermodynamics or is compliant with the famous Nernst equation.
