This is just a small collection of OpAmps that I’m currently using and their relevant characteristics (note that relevant characteristics means relevant to me, this is not a general statement).

If you’re interested in basic operational amplifier circuits I’ve also written a short blog article about the absolute basics.

OP Amp Open Loop Gain Gain Input Impedance (Common Mode) Input impedance (Differential) Bias current Bandwidth Vcc GBWP ESD Datasheet Comments
MAX4477ASA+T $60 dB$   $1 G\Omega$ $1 G\Omega$ $1 pA$ $10 MHz$ $2.7V$ to $5.5V$ $10 MHz$   Maxim General purpose low noise rail to rail OpAmp (Used this one in an low cost gamma radiation detector)
