Analog Signal Generation and Processing

  • Malcolm Goodge


  • Analysis and design of the various types of CR and LC linear oscillators: phase-shift, Wien-bridge, Colpitts, Clapp, Hartley and crystal oscillators.

  • Consideration of some techniques used to process signals: amplitude limiting, level clamping, precision rectification, filtering, shaping, modulation and demodulation.
