I suspect something is wrong. That doesn't sound... possible.

I am no engineer and I’ve never said this, but at times, I've seen someone who thinks this:

I think all my employees are like OpAmps, but I prefer to treat them like fuses.

What do you mean?

First, instead of resolving differences with the next guy, each amplifies the difference with the guy next to him.  Any small difference becomes as large a differences as they can make it;
Second, they seem to work better with negative feedback;
Third, when given just negative feedback, they are all good followers.
And lastly, none of them are ideal;

But what is this fuse thing?

Well, you pick out one that can do the job, let him work till he is burned out; then go get another one just like him and start over.

Ah, funny Op Amps should work for a vacuum tube...


First, you are an empty shell;
Second, you are full of hot air;
Third, you do way too little for your size;
Fourth, you are too power hungry.

I have proven that probe shield and chassis in a cheap Atten scope can withstand shorting the secondary of 500VA, 12V mains transformer :D. You know... the ground.... :)
I love the smell of FR4 in the morning!
