voltage follower
1. An amplifier used after an oscillator or other critical stage to isolate it from the effects of load impedance variations in subsequent stages. Also known as buffer; buffer stage.
2. An analog device that is typically used for impedance matching and signal isolation; for example, a sound card typically uses buffer amps at most of its input and output ports.
3. An operational amplifier that has no feedback components but has a direct feedback connection from the output to the inverting input to give unity gain so the output voltage follows the non-inverting input voltage.

A voltage follower has a very high input impedance and a very low output impedance.
