JAJSDK4A July 2017 – September 2018 TLV741P
The TLV741P uses an advanced internal control loop to obtain stable operation by using an input or output capacitor. An output capacitance of 1 μF or larger generally provides good dynamic response. TI recommends using X5R- and X7R-type ceramic capacitors because these capacitors have minimal variation in value and equivalent series resistance (ESR) over temperature.
Although an input capacitor is not required for stability, it is good analog design practice to connect a 0.1-µF to
1-µF capacitor from IN to GND. This capacitor counteracts reactive input sources and improves transient response, input ripple, and PSRR. TI recommends using an input capacitor if the source impedance is more than
0.5 Ω. A higher-value capacitor may be necessary if large, fast, rise-time load transients are anticipated or if the device is located several inches from the input power source.
