Notes on a Fast Op Amp

Model 46, introduced in the last issue of Dialogue, is a wideband differential operational amplifier optimized for applications requiring exceptionally fast settling times (to 0.1% in 100ns, to 0.01% in 300ns), fast slew rates (1000V/µs), and high output currents (±100mA at ±10V). To obtain, measure, and make use of such performance is no trivial matter. Read full article
