App note: Driving capacitive loads with op amps

How to drive capacitive loads with op amps. Operational  amplifiers that drive large capacitive loads can have problems like oscillation and peaking. This article describes how to anticipate and limit theses problems:

Other problems include: reduced bandwidth, lower output slew rate, and higher power consumption. This application note explains why these problems occur, how to modify the op amp circuit for better performance, and how to quickly compute circuit values.
