Abstract

The previous chapters dealt with important parts of OpAmps. With the design of the input stage the aspects of bias, offset, drift, noise, common-mode rejection, and rail-to-rail input range were covered; with the design of the output stage power efficiency, classification of the fully VF, compound VF/GA, and rail-to-rail fully GA output stages with feedforward and feedback class-AB biasing were presented. The remaining attributes of gain, high-frequency response, slew rate, and linearity have to be performed by the whole of the input, intermediate, and output stages. That is the subject of this chapter.
