I am having trouble interfacing with MIC6211 op-amp. I have it configured as voltage follower (buffer):
VIN changes from 5 V to 20 V. The op-amp output is high impedance (100% sure, even disconnected the load). My problem is that around VIN = 9V and going down, the op-amp stops following the voltage provided at pin 3. The voltage at pin 3 keeps dropping but the output (pin 4 and 1) does not. Going further down the voltage is so low that it cannot provide sufficient level for the op-amp to operate so the output drops as well.
Removing the op-amp from the circuit and shorcuting pins 3 and 1 provides proper operation of the circuit. This op-amp was only suppose to buffer the voltage divider voltage in case any load occured at PVOL.
What could be the case? Looking at the datasheet of the device this conditions should be fine, I should be able to buffer the voltage from 4 V to 32 V. I would appreciate all help.
