Higher Output Current for Op-Amp

Almost all monolithic amplifiers have good loaded output voltage swings, delivering +-10V at 5 mA with +-15V supplies because they use class-B output stages. It would be require much more current from the integrated circuit, for example, to make the output transistor considerably larger. In addition, the rose dissipation could make troublesome thermal gradients on the chip rising as well […]
