My thought on writing a chapter on amplifiers is that only certain topics about amplification will be explained. There are literally hundreds of books on amplifier design, including operational amplifiers, radio-frequency (RF) amplifiers, low-noise preamplifiers, audio power amplifiers, servo amplifiers, instrumentation amplifiers, and so on. Some of these books cover detailed material concerning input stages, voltage-gain stages, and output stages. And when video amplifiers are covered, a new set of specifications and signals is introduced, such as differential gain and phase, 2T pulse response, color bar, and multiburst signals.

As I am writing this chapter, I know that some readers would like more material on amplifiers. ...
