Dynamic Circuits: Reactance, time and frequency response, Bode plots, reactance charts, amplifier response characterization and compensation techniques, pole-zero movement, impedance gyrations above bandwidth, output load isolation, supply bypassing.

High-Performance Amplifiers
Bandwidth extension techniques, source-follower, common-emitter, cascode, shunt-feedback, and diff-amp compensation, precision and low-level amplification, noise, distortion, crosstalk, isolation, thermal effects, temperature compensation, current-feedback amplifiers, gain cells, multipliers, autocalibration.

Waveform-Processing Circuits
Voltage references, current sources, filters, hysteresis switches, clamps and limiters, multivibrators and timing circuits, trigger, ramp, sweep and triangle-wave generators, log and exp amplifiers and function generation, absolute-value circuits, peak detectors, D/A, A/D, and V/F converters, time- and frequency-domain sampling theory, sample-&-hold and switched-C circuits.

Analog Circuit Design is three paperback books of over 1000 pages. It contains hundreds of circuit sketches, drawings, graphs, tables, equations, and SPICE programs. 

This is one reference that engineers, technicians, and others involved with analog circuits will want to have handy on their computers. 

Besides an extensive library of the best circuits with their design equations derived, it carefully explains essential circuit principles with emphasis on developing a powerful intuitive perspective leading to SPICE-accurate circuit analysis by inspection. Many of the presented design techniques have been known only in advanced analog design labs in industry, not found in engineering textbooks. The author has worked among world-renowned analog designers.
