Abstract

Laser data and simulation tools are combined to investigate the single-event transient response of the LM124 operational amplifier. The effect of the bandwidth and gain on transients originating in different stages in the operational amplifier is studied. We found that the single-event transient response of the LM124 operational amplifier in an inverting configuration was dependent on the bandwidth of the amplifier, the gain, and on the values of the resistors used to program the gain of the amplifier. We show the results of simulations which illustrate how these changes impact the single-event transient response of the amplifier. An analysis of the results suggests which properties of an operational amplifier will provide a better single-event transient response.
