TLV9052: Confirm if the 0V input does not output a 0V value

Part Number: TLV9052
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TLV9062,

Hi Team

Our customer simulate TLV9052 and TLV9062 using the available Spice models for these devices. Everything looks great, except for the opamp doesn't actually output 0V when the input is 0V

Since this is a rail-to-rail part, the customer is wondering if this is a Spice artifact, or if this is how I can expect the IC to actually perform?

Please let me know if you have a question for the customer.

    Hi Jonathan,

    It depends on how close to 0V you are getting.  The op amps can get pretty close to the supply, but not to the rails.  I am assuming here that your V- supply is at GND.

    The op amps have an "Output Swing" spec which tells you how close you can move the output toward the rail.  The exact value will depend on the operating conditions of your amplifier.

    However, if one of the supplies is not GND, then what you are seeing could be the result of something else.

    If you could share a schematic of the amplifier with the supplies included, then I could give you a better idea of what is going on here.



  • Hi Jonathan,

    can you post the simulation file? Or the schematic?


  • Hi Daniel and Kai,

    Thank you for the support in this thread.
    I already shared the information of Daniel to my customer and I also request the schematic if he needs more help.

    I will let you know if the customer will share more information or the currently provided information is okay with the customer.



  • Hi Daniel, 

    The customer informed us that he is using GND as V- in the simulation which resolves the question above.

    Thank you for your help.
