We said at the start of this set of pages that the operational amplifier (op amp) was the heart of any analog computer, and all of our calculations were based on the assumption that the op amp is an ideal, perfect device. Of course, in reality that isn't true. So what is the truth about op amps? What are their real-world characteristics and what really goes on inside them?
