C-Load op amps conquer instabilities

Kevin R. Hoskins


Linear Technology’s series of C-Load amplifiers, which meet the challenging and difficult capacitive loads of contemporary ADC analog inputs by remaining stable and settling quickly, are described.


C-Load operational amplifier

ADC input


Linear Technology Corporation has taken advantage of advances in process technology and circuit innovations to create a series of C-Load operational amplifiers that are tolerant of capacitive loading, including the ultimate, amplifiers that remain stable driving any capacitive load. This series of amplifiers has a bandwidth that ranges from 160kHz to 140MHz. These amplifiers are appropriate for a wide range ...
