Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
The OPA627 and OPA637 are ideally suited to use as input amplifiers in instrumentation amplifier configurations requiring high speed, fast settling and high input impedance.
Low pass filters are commonly employed in signal processing applications to reduce noise and prevent aliasing. The OPA627 and OPA637 are ideally suited to construct high speed, high precision active filters. Figure 43 illustrates a second order low pass filter commonly encountered in signal processing applications.
Use the following parameters for this design example:
This circuit produces a signal inversion. For this circuit the gain at DC and the low pass cutoff frequency can be calculated using Equation 2.
