Portable Design;Sep2008, Vol. 14 Issue 9, p28
The article offers information on the technological significance and capacity of auto-zero operational amplifiers (op amps) in the electronics industry. Initially, it explores the history behind auto-zero op amps, as well as provides a high-level overview of the architecture. It also explores the inherent benefits of the auto-zero op amps for signal conditioning applications. In addition, it presents an analysis of an example application to further compare the auto-zero architecture against traditional op amps. The advantages of auto-zero op amps for being more user friendly and better performance are included.
