Working of CA3140 BiMOS OP-AMP
- The CA3140A and CA3140 BiMOS operational amplifiers feature gate-protected MOSFET (PMOS) transistors in the input circuit to provide very high input impedance, and very low input current, and High-Speed performance.
- Terminals are also provided for use in applications requiring input offset voltage nulling.
- The use of PMOS field effect transistors in the input stage results in common mode input voltage capability down to 0. 5V below the negative supply terminal, an important attribute for single supply applications.
- The output stage uses bipolar transistors and includes built-in protection against damage from load terminal short-circuiting to either supply rail or ground.
