As the need for highly precise operational amplifiers continues to grow, the use of self-correcting architectures has become more and more popular. This webinar will focus on zero-drift amplifiers, providing an overview of the zero-drift architectures and explore various design considerations inherent to these devices, including noise considerations, leakage currents, output characteristics and minimizing thermal related drifts.

Attendees will learn:

  • Understand how “zero-drift” amplifiers are defined within the industry
  • Gain a working knowledge of zero-drift architectures and the advantages they enable
  • Have an appreciation for various design considerations when implementing zero-drift amplifiers
