Re: Wall chart
The Philbrick website is very informative. Though 99% is out of date, the basics is still there and would be great reading. I printed the chart out and stuck it up on the wall in my office/lab. Be interesting to see how all the mechanical engineers react to it - I work in a company where I am the only EE. I am the black art dude in the company to them. haha

Re: Wall chart
Since Philbrick is long gone, it has been out of print for a long time. You can find a good scan at philbrickarchive.org and print it yourself.

Is it possible to get a copy of that OP-Amp wall chart?

Re: Books
Back around 1970, having seen the Philbrick Apps Manual, I wanted to experiment w/ one of the 12AX7-based op-amps as a guitar preamp.

What Dan taught me
I worked for Dan for 6 years as ass't editor of Analog Dialogue. Besides being a great person, he taught me that clarity of expression about a design or product--whether in writing or orally--comes from two things: 1) understanding what you're writing or talking about and 2) clear thinking, no cliches, no internal vaguenss. In other words, you can't be clear to others if you are not first clear and comfortable about it first in your own mind. Sounds obvious, but to work that way each day was a fabulous learning experience. I also learned that resorting to tired cliches in writing was laziness on the author's part and did not serve the audience well!

Happy owner of the Nonlinear Circuits Handbook. And a Philbrick Applications Manual.

Volume 1 #1 of Analogue Dialogue is April 1967 according to my Best of compilation :-)

If your interest is less in applications of analog technology than other problems, and you want to find out what’s happening in real analog, here's where you should be.
When it comes to this month’s ISSCC show, there are plenty of sections dedicated to solving issues with integrated analog technology. Here, our blogger looks at the sessions that offer new insight to difficult problems.
The International Solid State Circuits Conference kicks off February 9. While the mass media will focus on the biggest memory, faster processor, and smallest geometries reported, I prefer to look at the analog stuff.
Once semiconductor companies master the fabrication of micro-electromechanical systems (which they have), the next step is to master nano-electromechanical systems (which they are starting to).
A comparison of integrating large amounts of analog functionality onto a chip with simply using smaller individual analog function blocks. Which is better, cheaper, or easier?
