Hey Soufiane, 

It is not just "modern" designers that approach decomp parts with some trepidition. It has always been uphill from the first decomp part I was involved in (the CLC425) to these most recent blazing fast decomp VFA like the OPA855 (8GHz GBP). If you are tasked with a transimpedance design, most designers recognize the need for decomp and deal with it. Otherwise, it is a tough sell even with clear input noise and LSBW advantages. There are certainly added stability risks - but good models can mitigate those. Looking industrywide, I would say LTC has made a commitment to decomp (even more than I have) while Maxim recently spun out a series of decomp CMOS devices. Nice knob to use in product development if you understand the tradeoffs.

Hi Michael:

I think some designers should start by selecting the "right" process. There are compimentary processeses which lend themselves better for optimized speed/power ratios. On the other hand, most "modern" engineers seem to fear the idea of a decompenated op amp, think OP37 which is still one of the best decomp op amps ever made in my opinioon. 

I think that soon we will see increased needs for high speed and DC precision, this is particularly true for T&M and automotive but I can also see this need in medical instrumentation for instance.

Fast switching transitions can yield some disadvantages. Interference in the frequency range of the switching transitions between approximately 20 MHz and 200 MHz increases dramatically.
