Basics of Design: Designing with Chopper-Stabilized Operational Amplifiers</A><BR><FONT CLASS=body11>Sponsored by: <A HREF="http://www.intersil.com" TARGET=_blank CLASS=body11>INTERSIL</A></FONT>

Chopper-stabilized operational amplifiers have been improving in performance and cost advantages, though designers are not always familiar with their benefits. In many designs, these devices can overcome limitations of offset voltage and 1/f noise found in conventional op amps and be used in applications such as industrial control, medical and automotive. In this Basics of Design sponsored by Intersil, Electronic Design editor Don Tuite covers the history of choppers and then delves into the details, explaining why these devices make a great addition to a designer’s toolbox.
