Default Questions about a IV amp circuit


Here's a IV amp circuit.

How good would be this circuit ?

Can I use it for a TDA1541A dac ?

Any opinions about this IV amp circuit ?

It look like a Satri circuit.

Looks rather like a discrete opamp. Probably too poor slew rate to work well as I/V - the LTP current is just 1mA that charges caps which total 20pF explicitly, plus the parasitics. That appears to top out below 50V/uS. I'd suggest something more optimized for the task - at the very least you could further degenerate the LTPs to improve the slewing. I'd go for a CFB topology myself if I were doing a discrete I/V.

'Nothing less. The number 10 raised almost literally to the power of infinity.'
