What are op-amp characteristics and its significance?
Answer: Op-amp characteristics are classified into two categories namely dc characteristics and ac characteristics. DC characteristics includes-
- Input bias current.
- Input offset current.
- Input offset voltage.
- Thermal drift.
Ac characteristics includes-
- Frequency response.
- Stability. Frequency compensation.
- Slew rate.
The op-amp characteristics are important in practice because we can use them to compare the performance of various op-amp ICs and select the best suitable from them for the required application.
