    Hi,
    I'm cosidering using a EL 2009 buffer amp in a function generator output stage (project). The project uses 5v + and - for everything else but I'm not sure if the EL2009 runs on 5 volts. The data sheet shows a max voltage of 18v or so.

    Has anyone had experience with the using the EL2009 on 5 volts?

    I'm thinking it will run on 5 volts, I just don't know for sure.

    Thanks.

    Since you want people to look at the data sheet for you, don't you think it would be polite to include a link to the data sheet you want them to look at?

    The spec sheet shows an absolute rating of + -18v
    And the example shows +-12v
    It appears it may run on +-5, test it and see!
    Max.

    Thank you, I'll test it before using it (when it arrives).
