Hello everyone! I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to provide a detailed discussion on Introduction to LM258. LM-258 has two internal Operational Amplifiers (Op-amps) which are frequency compensated internally. They are specially designed to perform their tasks from a single power supply source using a wide range of voltages. They can also perform different operations using split power supply. LM-258 low power supply current drain does not depend upon the magnitude of the power supply source.
LM 258 has a lot of features including high DC voltage gain, large bandwidth, different input voltage equal to power supply, large output voltage swing, common mode input voltages include ground. These were the few of major features associated with LM-258 operational amplifier. LM 258 has a very wide range of real life applications. Its applications include DC gain blocks, transducer amplifiers, operational amplifiers circuits which can be implemented using single power supply source. LM-258 can be directly used with a voltage supply of 3.3V which is the most common voltage standard in digital systems. The further detail about LM-258 will be given later in this section.
Introduction to LM258
LM258 has two builtin internal operational amplifiers. These are internally frequency compensated. It can be operated with a single power supply source as well as from split power supply sources. Its low current drain is independent of the magnitude of the power supply. Wide voltage ranges and large output swing are some of its major features. DC gain blocks and transducer amplifiers are the example of its real life applications. LM-258 is shown in the figure shown below.
