Who here would be interested in a series of tuts on this topic... (start very basic, and migrate into more complicated topics...). I find Analog fun to design for and might be willing to document a series of tuts. What do you think... (its definitely not digital ;) )

I really think this forum needs as many tuts as possible, from theory to practice. :alright:

comparators, detectors, squaring circuits, invertors, integraters


Yah...go for it NaN.

agreed, and i would like to share my arcade repair exp as soon as i'm had it enough... uhmm... i mean good enough :grin: :grin:

I could write a few tut's. The question is: any topics in particular?
(And who is going to break the ice?)

Yes I know how to work CPU's and RAMS and connect them etc. but I am missing so much theory its not funny =|

Would a electronic temperature gauge or pressure gauge use Op-amps?

Most everything uses op-amps ;)

Especially sensing devices. Op-Amps are essentially the front door to math on a voltage level.

The op-amp can be vied as a "+" summing or "-" differentiator device (depending how its biased. Even a buffer (+0) device.

You can make a very cheap DAC (Digital to Analog Convertor) with a handfull of resistors and an op-amp! (Sum each 1-bit with its corresponding binary weight).

Op-amps. The VB of analog design.

YES please do so
could you cover analog computers while your at it ?

YA I saw a schematics for one of those for MOD players, with 10K and 20k resistors I think it is called "resistor-ladder" DAC. I wanted to build one for my 386SX since I didnt have a sound card and I was a gamer :(
