Mouser Electronics, Inc. and Texas Instruments (TI) announce a new e-book dedicated to the versatility and design power of operational amplifiers (op amps). In the e-book, titled Amplifier Solutions that Answer a Range of Design Needs, Mouser and TI experts delve into the many uses for the chips in the analog signal chain. Operational amplifiers […]READ MORE
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced two new USB Type-C™ and USB Power Delivery (PD) controllers, with fully integrated power paths to simplify designs, minimize solution size and speed time to market. The TPS65987D and TPS65988 offer system designers the industry’s highest level of integration which can reduce design complexity and overall cost. For more information, see […]READ MORE
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced a new reinforced isolated amplifier that features the industry’s highest precision and working voltages, and longest lifetime reliability. With exceptional performance that includes better nonlinearity, lower offset and gain error, and higher temperature stability, the ISO224 allows engineers to overcome performance limitations and design high-precision systems. The new amplifier is designed […]READ MORE
The semi-expert techniques for automating amplifier circuit designs calls for a combination of hard specification requirements and judgement margins. A design tool must support these techniques to zero in on the appropriate operational amplifier (op amp) and external components. Figure 1 shows two fundamental circuit examples that implore this type of tool.
Yes, these are simple topologies – but the difficulty is in the detail when selecting amplifiers and external components to meet the performance criteria for the application.
