Kindhornman, unless you are capable of "holding court" here, then perhaps it is best to sit back and maybe learn something about the subtleties of IC and discrete opamp engineering, design and analysis? Even if *nothing new* comes forth, there is a lot of information that is likely to flow - stuff that unless you were in an engineering group at one of the companies that make this stuff you and I are not likely to be privy to, ever.

Just a thought.

These were in plastic SMD of some sort. I'll try to find them. In fact, now that I think of it I specified them in a client's ten pounds in a five pound product, which, as I realized was their custom, never got completed. Although after making a plethora of errors, the layout guy said Why fix those if we don't know that it works, and another person at the company suggested I do all the troubleshooting of the flawed boards for free

Do they still make the LM 194/294/394?

Is the PMI SSM2210 still being made?

Ah, thanks.

Encapsulation compound dielectric strength is less than 425 volts per mil, I'd never go over 250 volts/mil. Externally, I'd stay under 25.

John;
the second stage is loaded on very different resistances: one to ground, another bootstrapped. One output device works with common source, another with common drain. As the result, highly modulated current through output devices and awful distortions, starting from the 2'nd order. Extremely poor thermal stability, both of output voltage and idle current.

this is one I discovered in the first edition years back... I don't pretend to have digested it all by any means:

Bipolar and MOS Analog Integrated Circuit Design (Wiley Classics Library)
By: Alan B. Grebene

_-_-

PS. when I first saw this book, I thought to myself - "myself, how the heck did this guy learn all of this, when all the other texts I have seen don't even scratch this surface at all??" (ie. where are they keeping the real information hidden? Do you have to reinvent the wheel for yourself?)
Both the "first edition" which actually had a different title and the one you mention are great books. Why not seen elsewhere? Well, some of the disclosed things were proprietary. IC manufacturers have to make money and if possible retain a competitive edge.

One such part: DMMT3906W, in SOT-363: http://www.diodes.com/datasheets/ds30312.pdf

I see there are some matching specs.

Brad, sorry I should have said "that I had not seen elsewhere...". Doesn't mean that this stuff was not out there, just that sitting in relative isolation, I had not found it via various pseudo random efforts to locate this sort of information - this was before the internet as we know it today... that meant trips to various university libraries and bookstores - many of the texts were even back then in the >$100 range, which was daunting. I persuaded someone to make me a photocopy of Grebene, because I couldn't swing the bux for even a used copy... whaaaaa!
