Dear Forum Members,
I’d like to share a few tips on the usual process I use to select an Op Amp based on pre-defined technical requirement.
The tool I use more often is the product selector, which can be accessed by clicking on the following icon from ST home page:
Then select in the product tree: “Amplifiers and Comparators” > “Amplifiers”.
Here is also direct link to the product selector:
In my typical Op Amp selection, I would firstly apply filter on the more obvious (and restrictive) parameters, like voltage rating “Vcc”, “number of channel” or “automotive grade”.
Then once the selection is narrowed to a limited number of components, I would use the sorting option, by clicking on the parameter. A red arrow indicated if the list is sorted by ascending or descending order.
For instance sorting by maximum supply current:
In this case, the sorting option helps to address the Icc / GBW trade off.
Don’t hesitate to let us know your comments about the product selector and if there are additional features you would like to see implemented.
