What are linear ICs?

PCBWay

Answer: A linear integrated circuit is a solid state analog device characterized by a theoretically infinite number of possible operating states. It operates over a continuous range of input levels. Within a certain input range, the amplification curve of a linear IC is a straight line i.e. the input and output voltages are directly proportional. The best known and most common linear IC is the operational amplifier or op amp.
