Deciphering Electrical Characteristics in an Op Amp Datasheet
 Training Home TRAINING HOME



The Operational Amplifier (Op Amp) is often the key analog gain block in acquiring and scaling real world signals in any data acquisition system. To predict system accuracy when using op amps it is important to understand the op amp data sheet and how individual specifications affect both the DC and AC transfer accuracy through the op amp.  Both DC and AC limitations will be discussed in detail. With this knowledge any engineer can design with op amps right the first time.
