    folded cascode op ampdesign

    Hello, I'm trying to design a folded cascode op amp as shown below. I need a high full power bandwidth, about 90 to 100MHz, and a high gain (>60dB). I reach the required gain but it's hard for me to have a large full power BDW, it doesn't exceed the 500KHz. From the theory, the frequency at...

    PSRR in op amp

    Hello, I have a question about the PSRR and the noise in an op amp. Which configuration has the best PSRR? Is it the telescopic one or the folded cascode? I know that to improve PSRR, we need to have a high output resistance and symmetric architecture ( can someone pls tell me why symmetry...

    Operational amplifier MOSFET vs BJT

    Hello, I have a question regarding operational amplifiers. Whenever I search for some datasheets of high gain and high-speed Op Amps ( BW higher than 50MHz), I mostly find that they are made of bipolar transistors rather than mosfet. Why is it so? I've done some research and I've found that...

    operational amplifier design

    Hello, I'm trying to design an one stage OP AMP made of a differential pair, a current load and a current mirror as shown in the picture ( the first stage only, I didn't include Q7 Q6 and Compensation capacitance) I designed the circuit to have a gain of 100V/V, a slew rate of 2V/µs, aGWB...

    Sample and hold circuit simulation in Altium

    I'm done getting crap output signals. I've tried to simulate about a dozen circuits with several operational amplifiers. Filters work fine, but SAH doesn't. I give up and asking you for help. There can I find tutorials about designing circuits with OP AMPs? Also, if you got a circuit, you are...

    OPA657 Op-Amp oscillating for unknown reasons

    Greetings, I am working on a Lidar system for a senior project and am running into issues I am unable to solve with my circuit. The project requires the use of an amplification and comparator circuit in order to take the detector output up to a level that will trigger a TDC controlled by a...

    What is the important of Gain Bandwidth of op amp

    Hello, I am required to design an active band pass filter and I needs to design it at high frequency around FM Radio frequency (>80MHz). Do the GBW of op amp needs to be selected accordingly to the required frequency or it does not matter? And what is GBW indicates actually?

    DC biased opamp input resistor function

    http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/pdf/ggg_dist_plus_sc.pdf I'm looking to understand this schematic. Currently focussing on the input and power stages. Here's where I'm at: INPUT R1 is a pulldown resistor. It provides a path for the leakage current through C2 when the switch is in the...

    Op-Amp Voltage Follower Outputs ~+Vcc when IN+ is 0V

    Hi all, I'm fairly new to working with operational amplifiers and so I'm just messing around with a few basic circuits. Had a comparator working fine to switch an LED on/off based on some variable reference voltage, but now I'm trying to get a working voltage follower. I have 2 different...
