Operational amplifiers provide fundamental building blocks that can be used for the buffering, amplification and/or filtering of signals. In addition, these measurements may be required under harsh conditions, such as extreme temperatures, centrifugal forces and electrically noisy environments. System designers must be diligent in designing the appropriate signal conditioning to deal with these environmental issues, and their operational amplifier’s speed should not be overlooked.
