A Beginner's Guide to Operational Amplifiers and Voltage Regulators
October 23rd, 2018 | 12 PM Central Time
Gain a complete understanding of some of the most widely-used analog devices on the market
Any analog integrated circuit, whether standard or custom, consists primarily of a few basic circuits connected in such a way as to perform a desired analog function. These basic circuits are transistor amplifiers in various configurations, the current mirror, the voltage reference, and various types of output stages.
Operational amplifiers (op-amps) and voltage regulators by far stand out as the standard circuits with the widest application in systems of various kinds.
During this one-hour webinar, we will consider the basics of operation and application of these widely-used standard circuits, with the intent of providing a guide to understanding the parameters and key performance of each, and at the same time exploring STMicroelectronics portfolio and tools for this important class of analog circuits.
This webinar will cover:
- Where op-amps are used
- Op-amp parameters
- Op-amps vs. comparators
- Introduction to the ST op-amp portfolio
- Zero drift amplifiers
- Voltage regulators: Linear vs. Switching
- Buck converter operation
- ST high-performance LDOs
- eDesign suite
There will be a live Q&A session at the end of the webinar where ST’s experienced smart driver application engineers will be available to answer your questions.

Amplifiers and Comparators
ST’s analog product portfolio includes operational amplifiers and comparators dedicated to the challenging industrial, automotive and consumer markets. The main features of our growing portfolio are low power, high precision and tiny packages. The range of products allows easy and fast integration of analog products inside signal conditioning, monitoring and control solutions.
ST offers one of the widest selection of fixed and adjustable linear voltage regulators. We offer an ever-expanding range of high performance regulators addressing all the major trends in the industry. Among our products, you can find the optimal combination of low dropout voltage and quiescent current - for the highest efficiency design - or dynamic performances for the best transient response, ripple rejection and low noise. All this coupled with a choice of the smallest form factor packages for size conscious applications.
