Can it be assumed the output resistance is the same or roughly the same
near the power supply rails as it would be near the center of the output
It is the linearity of the open loop output resistance with DC output current I
most want to know about. But there is some interest in how this changes with
frequency of current demand as well. Thanks Glenn for the reference to the spec
sheets for the AD811 and AD712. But the Fig 8 on page 5 of the AD811 spec is
closed loop output resistance. TPC 6 on page 4 of the AD712 spec does not say if
the output resistance is closed or open loop.
