Can I operate OP4177 with a single supply, datasheet only specifies dual


Yes, you can use OP4177 with a single supply but you need to be careful that
the input or output does not exceed the headroom limitations (1V from both the
supply rails).
Generally speaking, op amps can be used from any supply voltages (symmetrical
or asymmetrical) that are less than the total maximum power supply from V+ to
V-. The only thing to be careful of is that the inputs and outputs have
headroom limitations and cannot swing all the way to the supply rails (1V for
the OP4177). The absolute maximum rating for the power supplies is 36V between –
Vs and +Vs
