Default Bypassing the LM6171

Just looking for some user experience on bypassing the power pins on the LM6171

I believe the CarlosFM method is 22-100uF electrolytic with 0.1uF ceramic as close as possible (which I've used happily with other opamps - thanks Carlos!). Datasheet shows a configuration with a 2.2uF tantalum with 0.01uF for the LM6171.

What has worked well for you with this chip?

4.7 BG N without any other aditional bypasses.

1uF low inductance film like cap "ERO" MKT 1822 soldered onto the pins also works and sounds good. This arrangement and a battery works well with no further aditions needed.

best avoid using sockets - they could well cause oscillation.

I did it dead bug style.

That and also a 100~330nf directly across V+ and V- pins works wonders.
No problem with sockets and the LM6171 if you use the small ML ceramics right on the socket's pins to ground.
And btw no need for ultra-fancy caps to have excellent results.

Thanks all! Good to know it's not hypersensitive - you just need to treat it properly.

I'll probably start with the method I know, and experiment from there.

I was going to go without socket (which I don't like to do, but wanted to avoid the extra capacitance). Maybe I'll give it a try with some good machined sockets first, keep the caps as tight as possible, and see if I can keep it out of oscillation.

And I definitely won't forget the 100-330nF from V+ to V-

old thread but can you elaborate? i don't understand BG N. do you mean 4.7 resistor across it? i was told something about a 4.7k resistor bypassing it battery but was across the in and out i think. Are you using this bypass method as a way of doing a line in?

Gotcha. That is how you use the lm6171 discrete as an input? Does zero offset still need to be completed or is that handled.

You can't get zero offset. Even the LMP2021, which I designed, by the way, has -400 nV of systematic offset.

According to the data sheet (http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/lm6171.pdf), the LM6171 has 8 mV worst case input offset voltage. If that isn't good enough for your application, you need to do something about it.

I am impressed. i was told by a friend it can be used discrete as an in and planning on using it but haven't had the time to pay with it, I have about 100 of em and used them for different things. i remember in the white pages it said something about when discrete using tantanum parts?
