This is the first of four videos in the TI Precision Labs – Op Amps curriculum that addresses operational amplifier electrical overstress (EOS). In this training, we discuss the causes of electrical overstress and introduce several methods that can be used to improve circuit robustness against electrical overstress. All of the examples in this video show op-amp circuits, but the methods used could be applied to other devices as well. Follow up videos will give additional details showing how to select component values as well as test methods used to confirm electrical overstress robustness.
