Look they have something. How they call them: opamp evaluation boards I think.
See their application notes which have schematics in them.

I have completed a 2 stage opamp with GBW of 330MHz, DCgain=60dB, GM=20dB and PM=54 degree. I found that i can't go beyond 3rd order unity gain 200MHz SallenKey LowPassFilter since the o/p signal is out of phase.
Can anyone give any comment/suggestion/solution?
I see 300MHz bandwidth. What opamp did you use?

Does anybody know how to do the AC simulation for fully-differential OTA with sc-cmfb?
This is what I have heard:
1) use vcvs to model the sc-cmfb;
however, what should I put the gain for the vcvs?
A very large value?
Please look at the attachment for the schematic.
2) Use the pac (in spectre)

In an opamp, I want to increase the bandwidth without increasing the current. I think I should increase the gm of the output transistors whose drain constitutes the high impedance node of the circuit and the dominant pole. I do so but the bandwidth does not increase. What is wrong with the procedure? Any suggestion?

With a positive offset, all it's ok but witha negative one the loop becomes open!
Why does it happen?

In most applications which use any popular Op-Amp IC, the currents In and Ip will be very small currents. These are input currents and the designer might not even bother to calculate any terms which include these currents. They would probably use a low or zero value for Rp and maybe a low value for R1 so that these current

The gain of an OP-amp is very high so can be set to any reasonable value with external components, so ANY op-amp would do. If you are after some very special parameters such as low noise, very low drift, high frequency response funny DC supplies, then a specific device would need to be bought. I like these for general purpose :- [url=www.map

I want to calculate the gain
In your circuit, gain=1 , due to full negative feedback.
If you want to measure gain & phase vs. frequency, use your opamp in open loop configuration.
There are a lot of threads about this in the forum. E.g. search for "Middlebrook" .

Looks like the dominant pole is only about 19 Hz, the second pole is around 90 kHz. UGB freq = 640 kHz.
The dominant pole is too low. And the DC gain is too high.

If the accuracy is not extremely critical, you can divide down a reference of your choice and buffer it with an opamp. You will have to adjust the circuit yourself, so the accuracy can only be as good as your meter, reference, etc.
I hope the current requirement is not high.

There is no such a thing like "minimum input voltage". opamps are linear devices and will amplify any input voltage.
However, because of temperature drifts, bla, bla ,bla .. with opamps like 741 one should avoid using them with voltages below "certain" level. I wouldn't use 741 for amplifying signals below,say, 1mV. Try to employ more contemporary

First of all, check that the opamp does not actually short or overload the negative rail. Check there is no mistake in the wiring.
Also, do you have good decoupling on the 555?
Other than, that, the circuit should work.

the opamp in the bandgap circuit just fixes two voltages the same , it will have little effect on the TC of output voltage.
so, I think the large TC comes from your res ratio, it is no well setted. the ratio of the res have large effect of TC.
