AN-1604 Decompensated Operational Amplifiers (Rev. B)


This application report discusses the what, why, and where of decompensated op amps. This application report also describes external compensation techniques, such as reducing loop gain, to stabilize op amps operated at gains less than the minimum stable gain specified in the datasheet. A comprehensive treatment of input lead-lag compensation including examples is presented.
