OPA2211A: Using asymmetrical supply voltages

Part Number: OPA2211A
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: OPA211


Can I use asymmetrical supply voltages such as +15V/-5V for OPA2211AIDDAR?

My application is a Sallen-Key low pass filter with a 1.2V/V gain to bias a LDMOS RF power transistor

  • Hi Mustafa,

    of course. But don't violate the absolute maximum ratings shown in section 6.1 of datasheet.

  • Hi Mustafa,

    Yes, you can use the device with asymmetrical supplies of +15 and -5V. As Kai has mention, please ensure not to violate the Absolute max ratings.

    The OPA211 has to be maintained inside its linear region: it has an input common-mode voltage range specification delimited by the supply rails of (V-)+1.8V and (V+)-1.4V. Also, the output swing is also limited to 0.2V (or 0.6V) from the supply rails depending on load. Please see Input Voltage Range and Voltage Output on section 6.6 of the datasheet.

    Please let us know if you have any questions,

    Thank you,
