The OPAx172 uses integrated electromagnetic interference (EMI) filtering to reduce the effects of EMI from sources such as wireless communications and densely-populated boards with a mix of analog signal chain and digital components. EMI immunity can be improved with circuit design techniques; the OPAx172 benefits from these design improvements. Texas Instruments has developed the ability to accurately measure and quantify the immunity of an operational amplifier over a broad frequency spectrum extending from 10 MHz to 6 GHz. Figure 42 shows the results of this testing on the OPAx172. Table 2 shows the EMIRR IN+ values for the OPAx172 at particular frequencies commonly encountered in real-world applications. Applications listed in Table 2 can be centered on or operated near the particular frequency shown. Detailed information can also be found in Application Report SBOA128, EMI Rejection Ratio of Operational Amplifiers, available for download from www.ti.com.
