Dominican Boy is the raw story of a peculiar 14-year-old Dominican immigrant. He finds himself submerged in books and stuck struggling to exist between a multicultural world of Brooklyn and Queens, circa 1995. He's a ghetto nerd who seems to have no problems with girls. So much so that even the older women on his block try to seduce him- to his overbearing mother's chagrin. He's haunted by fantastical dreams. Dreams that have been influenced by an insatiable thirst for fantasy in a space he wishes he could escape. He's a misanthrope. Not by choice, but because he has a deep love and disdain of others. He fancies himself an archetypical protagonist of Greek tragedies and ends up becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.
This book describes the concept and design of the capacitively-coupled chopper technique, which can be used in precision analog amplifiers. Readers will learn to design power-efficient amplifiers employing this technique, which can be powered by regular low supply voltage such as 2V and possibly having a +/-100V input common-mode voltage input. The authors provide both basic design concepts and detailed design examples, which cover the area of both operational and instrumentation amplifiers for multiple applications, particularly in power management and biomedical circuit designs.
