Troubleshooting Tips: Op Amps

The linear amplifier troubleshooting guide highlights various techniques to assist with application problem-solving, debugging and datasheet measurements on TI specific products. The hands-on courses aid in circuit analysis, isolate the root cause of an application non-conformance and provide detailed product level information to a TI representative. Industry experts present each topic in order to help reduce debugging time and move quickly through troubleshooting to production.

The curriculum is segmented into major topic learning categories, each of which contains short training videos and hands-on demonstrations. In addition each training highlights representative system level issues which may correlate to the observed application anomaly.

1. Linear Amplifier Troubleshooting: Electrical Verification

Understanding how to measure electrical specifications such as input voltage offset or common mode rejection ratio as defined by the TI product datasheet is critical during the debugging process. This video series outlines various configurations to help confirm the electrical characteristics of a linear amplifier. The methods outlined help determine the potential root cause of a non-conformance of a circuit board.
