  1. Hi Louis

    Can you do a tutorial on negative power supplies and op-amps please? Although I am nearing retirement age I have been learning about electronics for the last couple of years. I wish I had “gotten into” electronics a lot sooner as I really enjoy the subject. I do understand op-amps a bit but am struggling with negative power supplies.



  2. Hi
