What are the differences between operational amplifiers and comparators?
The basic configuration is the same but there are the following differences.
|Output stage configuration||Push-pull||Open collector/drain|
|Features||Difficult to oscillate||Easy to oscillate during amplification operation|
|Phase correction capacitor||Provided||Not provided|
|Pulse response characteristic||Slow (defined as slew rate)||Fast (defined as 50% output delay)|
