Operational Amplifiers

Block Diagram of Op-Amp

Chapter Outline

The concepts introduced in this chapter are:

  • Operational Amplifiers
  • Block diagram of the Op-Amp
  • Principle of Differential Amplifier
  • Offset voltages and currents of an Op-Amp
  • Various applications of Op-Amp

All the types of amplifiers discussed are designed for a specific application or use. They involve either transistor or FET circuits either in single or multi stage configurations. But, Operational Amplifier, known as Op-Amp, is an amplifier, which has a number of applications. Op-Amp is a cascade of large number of amplifier stages designed such ...
