This range shows the values of positive and negative saturation voltages of op-amp. The output transistors must support 25mA, compared to microamps for the internal transistors.

Structure of a PNP transistor in the op amp. The op amp is one of the most famous and popular ICs [1] with hundreds of millions sold since its invention in by faifchild IC designer Dave Fullagar. They consist of a circular emitter Psurrounded by a ring shaped base Nwhich is surrounded by the collector P.

The current source sends a fixed current I through the differential pair. Manufacturers use diverse circuits for their chips. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use. It is possible to operate the on a single rail supply also.

The steady state response does not depend on time fairchjld transient fairchilx is time invariant. But, for a higher current the IC will fail.

Therefore, its absolute value is listed in the datasheet. Nobody would knowingly connect the output of the op-amp to the ground.

Input offset voltage is the voltage that is applied between the two input terminals of the op-amp to null the output. Thethough, includes clever circuits to shut down the output before damage occurs. Possibly the best lab experiment I did as an EE undergraduate was to view a under an electron microscope, as I recall as SEM but with the beam switched off. When you look closely at the silicon die in the center of the image there is a relatively large metal area which is the 30pF capacitor required compensate the amplifier.


The diagram below shows one of the PNP transistors in thealong with a cross-section showing the silicon structure. This simplifies the circuit design and minimizes the number of components used. In the figure V1 and V2 are the input dc voltages are Ra represents the resistance applied.

The op-amp has pins 1 and 5 marked as offset null to determine the offset voltage adjustment range.

A common use of a current mirror is to replace resistors. Output Resistance is the equivalent resistance that is measured between the output terminal Pin 6 and Ground.

Die for the op amp, showing the main functional units. The output from the differential amplifier goes to the second gain cairchild, which provides additional amplification of the signal. The doesn’t use this technique; for more information on junction capacitors ffairchild my article on the TL The capacitor blocks these oscillations.

The photo below shows one of the output transistors.

This can be found out by connecting a 10K POT between the pin 1 negative offset null and pin 5 positive offset null and the wiper of the port should be connected to the ground. The slew rate of an op-amp is always fixed.

The fakrchild below shows two resistors in the op amp, formed using different techniques. Transistor matching is very important: Fakrchild manufacturers advise not to exceed these maximum ratings even under the worst operating conditions. In this post, we will be discussing about the IC, one of the most popularly used op-amp IC. This power is called power consumption and typical value is 85mW. I’ve vastly oversimplified op amp stability and frequency compensation.

If the input voltages are equal, the current will be split equally into the two branches I1 and I2.

fairchipd It turns out that transistors on a chip look nothing like this, and the base often isn’t even in the middle! Another feature that made the popular is its short-circuit protection. An interesting thing about resistors on planar semiconductors: Microscopic images of technology. So you could see the input stages gradually getting lighter and darker as the charge on them accumulated and dissipated, while the output stages would flip back and forth between light and dark as they were saturating.


Both resistors are at the same scale below, but the pinch resistor has ten times the resistance. Second, if you use a transistor with twice the collector size, you will get an output with twice the current for instance. The interactive chip viewer below provides more explanation.

If you’ve looked at analog IC block diagrams, you may have seen the above symbols for a current source and wondered what a current source is and why you’d use one. This allows a much higher resistance for a given size. Do you know how RFID wallets work and how to make one yourself?

With even a basic middle-school microscope, you can get a good view of the die at low magnification but for the die photos, I used a metallurgical microscopewhich shines light fairchld above through the lens. Courtesy of Dave Fullagar. As one input continues to increase, more current gets pulled into that branch. Using a single transistor with two collectors helps with matching.

This equivalent circuit illustrates the internal structure of the op-amp and also helps to clarify the capabilities and limitations of the op-amp.

Schematic of a simple differential pair circuit. But some ICs, such as theare available in metal cans fairchils can be easily opened with a hacksaw. The result is a transistor will have poor gain if the collector and emitter are swapped. If the value of CMRR is high, there is better matching between the 2 input terminals.
