Boasting impressive specifications, compact package options, and versatility – making this dual operational amplifier an indispensable piece in signal conditioning applications.

What is gain-bandwidth product (GBW)

The Gain-Bandwidth Product (GBW) is a parameter used to characterize the performance of operational amplifiers (op-amps) and other analog electronic devices. It is a measure of the product of the gain (amplification) and the bandwidth (frequency range) of the device. In other words, it represents the maximum frequency at which an op-amp can provide a specified gain.

The GBW product is typically expressed in hertz (Hz) and is calculated using the following formula:

GBW = Gain × Bandwidth

Here, “Gain” refers to the amplification or voltage gain provided by the op-amp, and “Bandwidth” refers to the frequency range over which this gain is achieved.

For example, if you have an op-amp with a gain of 100,000 (100,000 times amplification) and a bandwidth of 10,000 Hz, the GBW product would be:

GBW = 100,000 × 10,000 = 1,000,000,000 Hz or 1 GHz

This means that the op-amp can provide a gain of 100,000 up to a frequency of 10,000 Hz. Beyond this frequency, the gain starts to decrease, and the op-amp’s performance is limited.

The GBW product is a critical parameter to consider when designing analog circuits, especially in applications where you need to maintain a certain gain over a specific frequency range. It helps engineers choose the right op-amp for their design to ensure it meets the required performance specifications.
