Working and Need of an Operational Amplifier

An operation amplifier is basically a voltage amplifier which is used along with some external components between its I/O pins. These external components used such as resistors, capacitors, etc. determine the function of the op-amp. LM1458 is a dual operational amplifier which has a lot of applications but is widely used in audio amplification applications. Another application where op-amps are used is voltage followers.

Voltage Follower Circuit

A voltage follower made with an op-amp is very useful because the circuits have a very high impedance. A voltage follower can also be called a buffer circuit, unity gain amplifier, and uses an op-amp circuit as it has a voltage gain of 1. Here the circuit does not provide any amplification but provides an output voltage following the input voltage (The output voltage is equal to the input voltage). In the circuit above, the input voltage is provided to the non-inverting terminal of the op-amp IC and the inverting terminal is connected to the output of the op-amp through which a load is connected and the output voltage is taken across it.
