Tiny Amplifiers Drive Heavy Capacitive Loads at Speed

Parasitic capacitance lurks behind every corner of an electronic circuit. FET gates, cabling, ground and power planes all add to the Farad bottom line. When the capacitive load gets heavy in high speed circuits, careful op amp selection is paramount for optimizing slew rate, current output capability, power dissipation, and feedback loop stability.
