Webinar: Standard Analog Integrated Circuits - Oct 23 2018

A Beginner's Guide to Operational Amplifiers and Voltage Regulators


One-hour webinar
October 23rd, 2018

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
  • LDOs
  • Buck converter operation
  • ST high-performance LDOs
  • eDesign suite
