Part Number: THS4631
Dear TI expert,
I have some problems about loop gain calculations of op amps by TINA-TI.
1.I see this slide Fig1(the resolution is poor) in that video on the website
training.ti.com/ti-precision-labs-op-amps-stability-3. They all break the loop from the op amp’s output. And I wonder what are the right ways to measure the loop gain for CFA?
2.Fig2 is from THS4631’s datasheet(pp5/34, Figure6). I test the closed-loop transfer function under Fig2’s condition. And I find that with an isolation resistance 10ohms, the closed-loop transfer function will have no peaking even with 100nF load capacitor. Can you please show me the correct result or just offer me the correct simulation circuits for this?
3.I want to implement analog proportion-integration regulator with high speed op amp. If I choose VFA, its gain bandwidth product will be 350MHz, and supply voltage are greater than ±15V.For the sake of performance, what do you recommend? VFA or CFA, which is better for this application?
In reply to Sean Cashin:
Thank you for your reply.
1.I’ve watched the video, and I guess that you mean the methods to simulate the loop gain by TINA-TI from on-line video (https://training.ti.com/ti-precision-labs-op-amps-stability-3?cu=14685) apply also for CFA?
2.I’ve simulated under the conditions in Fig6(from THS4631’s datasheet, pp5/34) and Fig1 shows my TIAN-TI simulation circuits. But the simulation results are very different from the datasheet’s result. For example, when RISO=50ohms, CL=10pF, the AC transfer function by my simulation file is as Fig2 below(gain and phase characeristics are form top to bottom). After my measurements of Fig2, there are technically no AC peaking, which is observed in datasheet’s Fig6, pp5/34. This problem bothers me for 2 days and I have no choice but ask you for help. Please check my simulation circuit and tell me the right results. Thank you very much!

3.You say that “Based on the easier design of an integrator using a VFA”. And can you give more details about what are the aspects where VFA and CFA differ from each other when implemented as an integrator? Thank you very much!
4. Does TI have high-speed op amp, with supply voltages greater than ±15V and GBP(Gain-Bandwidth Product) greater than 350MHz? I’ve searched but found none.
