Gathering of the Hominids: A Family Tree, is a mytho-historical/ anthropological tale of our common ancestral roots. The minds-eye can see the stories told around the fire, connecting us to our ancient past. This is a journey into other realms of existence, rooted in Nature. "Gathering of the Hominids" is like a star, one of the absolutely beautiful stars in the late night when workaday consciousness has taken rest and the mind dreams & dreams." Many of these pieces were written to be spoken aloud...they live within the voice... the history of time has been marked by the spoken voice more than the written word.... The millenniums around the campfire... voicing the history of the tribe, the storytelling, bringing to life the images. When possible read aloud, find the cadence, rhythm.... The pieces come alive thru the voice...
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.
