The TLVx172 operational amplifier provides high overall performance in a large number of general-purpose applications. As with all amplifiers, applications with noisy or high-impedance power supplies require decoupling capacitors placed close to the device pins. In most cases, 0.1-µF capacitors are adequate. Follow the additional recommendations in the Layout Guidelines section to achieve the maximum performance from this device. Many applications introduce capacitive loading to the output of the amplifier (which potentially causes instability). To stabilize the amplifier, add an isolation resistor between the amplifier output and the capacitive load. Typical Application section shows the process for selecting a resistor.
