Questions tagged [single-supply-op-amp]

For questions about op amps that are marketed as capable of "single supply" operation. While all op amps can be operated with a single supply, op amps that are marketed as capable of "single supply" operation typically include an input common mode range and output voltage swing down to the negative supply voltage. Always use with the "operational-amplifier" tag.
