Modern op amps in old school designs

Learn when to use and not to use different op-amp topologies, how to verify op-amp macro models, and op-amp rules of thumb and design tricks.

Our op amp specs are generally better than or equal to nearly all of the legacy part specs. Whether your focus is on personal electronics, industrial or medical, every engineer interested in learning how to combat the problem of why our higher performance, lower cost op amps sometimes don’t work in legacy sockets should view this training. Learn from a training structured “definition by example” based on real-world cases to de-mystify these “TI doesn’t work in my legacy socket” occurrences.

What you’ll learn:

  • Some of the complexities of modern op-amps that transcend spec tables and influence performance
  • When to use and NOT to use different op-amp topologies
  • How to “trust but verify” anybody’s op-amp macro model
  • Op-amp rules of thumb and design tricks
