The LM741 is a popular operational amplifier (op-amp) integrated circuit (IC) that is commonly used in electronic circuits. It is available in an 8-pin DIP (dual inline package) format and has been in use since its introduction in 1968 by Texas Instruments.
1 x LM741 IC.
- Gain bandwidth product (GBW): 1MHz

- High gain: The LM741 has a very high open-loop voltage gain of 200,000, which makes it suitable for applications that require high gain amplification.
- Low input offset voltage: The LM741 has a low input offset voltage, which means that the output voltage will be very close to the input voltage when there is no input signal. This makes it useful for applications that require accurate signal amplification.
- Wide supply voltage range: The LM741 can operate on a wide range of supply voltages from ±3V to ±22V, making it suitable for use in many different circuits.
- Low input bias current: The LM741 has a low input bias current, which means that it will not draw much current from the input signal. This makes it useful for applications that require low power consumption.
- Short-circuit protection: The LM741 has built-in short-circuit protection that helps to protect the amplifier from damage in case of a short circuit.
