Basic Operation
Figures 1 and 2 illustrate typical circuit configurations for
noninverting, inverting, and unity gain topologies for dual

Power Dissipation
Power dissipation should not be a factor when operating
under the stated 2k ohm load condition. However, ap
plications with low impedance, DC coupled loads should
be analyzed to ensure that maximum allowed junction
temperature is not exceeded. Guidelines listed below can
be used to verify that the particular application will not
cause the device to operate beyond it’s intended operat
ing range.
Maximum power levels are set by the absolute maximum
junction rating of 150°C. To calculate the junction tem
perature, the package thermal resistance value ThetaJA
(ӨJA) is used along with the total die power dissipation.
TJunction = TAmbient + (ӨJA × PD)
Where TAmbient is the temperature of the working environment.
In order to determine PD, the power dissipated in the load
needs to be subtracted from the total power delivered by
the supplies.
PD = Psupply  Pload
Supply power is calculated by the standard power equa
tion.
Psupply = Vsupply × IRMS supply
Vsupply = VS+  VS
Power delivered to a purely resistive load is:
Pload = ((VLOAD)RMS2)/Rloadeff
The effective load resistor (Rloadeff) will need to include
the effect of the feedback network. For instance,
Rloadeff in figure 3 would be calculated as:
RL  (Rf + Rg)
These measurements are basic and are relatively easy to
perform with standard lab equipment. For design purpos
es however, prior knowledge of actual signal levels and
load impedance is needed to determine the dissipated
power. Here, PD can be found from
