Single-Supply Circuit Circuit Collection Boundary Conditions
What boundary conditions exist for a single-supply op amp design?
All op amps are constrained to output voltage swings less than or equal to their power
supply. Use of a single supply limits the output voltage to the range of the supply voltage.
For example, when the supply voltage VCC equals +10 V, the output voltage, VOUT is limited to the range between 0V and 10V. This limitation precludes negative output voltages when the circuit
has a positive supply voltage, but it does not preclude negative input voltages. As long
as the voltage on the op amp input leads does not become negative, the circuit can handle
negative voltages applied to the input resistors.
Beware of working with negative (positive) input voltages when the op amp is powered
from a positive (negative) supply because op amp inputs are highly susceptible to reverse-voltage breakdown. Also, ensure that no start-up condition reverse biases the op
amp inputs when the input and supply voltage are opposite polarity.
