Briefly Discuss About Op amp(Operational Amplifiers)

Definition of OP-AMP-:

An operational amplifier, or OP-AMP, is a high-gain electronic voltage amplifier & which can be used AC as well as DC both cases. Op amp  is DC coupled and contains a differential input and, usually, a single-ended output.

Operational amplifier

It is basically designed to perform mathematical operations like that Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division etc. OP-AMPs may be single, dual, quad etc. An Op amp produces an output voltage which is often several times larger than the voltage difference between its input terminals.
