Modern Op Amps in Old School Designs

TI’s 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 macromodel

•Op-Amp rules of thumb and design tricks

1. Introduction and Stability

This section introduces the goals of the training series and provides a quick review of op amps with an intuitive look at the basic model of an op amp. We explore open loop gain, feedback, output impedance, and how the interaction of the three relate to stability. It is necessary to have a sound understanding of op amp stability fundamentals to understand the applications issues presented in the next section.
