This module is the introduction to the analog section of the senior project book.

Introduction

Your senior project will require a lot of analog circuits. The goal of this section of the book is to help you find the right parts for your design. Texas Instruments has tens of thousands of unique part numbers covering this broad area of IC technology.

Reading the chapters that follow will help you remember the theory behind selecting the parts you will need. Our goal is to help you think through the process of selecting the right parts, and then actually finding them.

Here are the topics of the chapters in this section, with the authors' names in parentheses:

  • Operational amplifiers (Bruce Trump).
  • Data converters (Rick Downs and Tom Hendricks).
  • Wireless communication devices (Thomas Almholt and Farrukh Inam).
  • Interface devices (Thomas Kugelstadt).
  • System devices (Charles Hefner).
  • Power management (Upal Sengupta).

Packages

You may notice that many of the devices you would like to use from TI will not be easy to insert into your printed circuit board. And because they are not dual inline packaged (DIP), they don’t plug into a prototyping board. This is an issue we discussed at length when we were selecting parts for the Senior Project Cabinet. We decided to go this route because when you get to your first post-collegiate project, these difficult-to-solder parts will be what you'll design with, as they take up less board space and are easier to use in automated production lines. It is also less expensive to use these smaller devices. So we chose to give you a bit of experience using these devices and prepare you for the future.

But the news isn't all bad. There are adaptor boards available that will convert the quad flat package (QFP) to a DIP. One of them is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 2 shows an alternate solution that allows you to build your own adaptor boards. It has multiple adaptor circuits on one board that split apart easily.

Enough about adaptors. It’s time for you to jump into the chapters on analog circuits. Each was written by an expert on TI’s application staff. Learn to enjoy the task of revisiting material you forgot right after the test. This will not be the first time you will relearn material, or in some cases learn it for the first time. It will be a career-long exercise as you grow with the technology.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
