voltage amplifier in a small package Opamps were originally developed to perform mathematical operations in analog computers hence the odd name They are now made using integrated circuit technology so they come in the typical multipin IC packages With the proper external components the operational amplifier can perform a wide variety of operations on the input voltage It can multiply the input voltage by nearly any constant factor positive or negative it can add the inputvoltage to other input voltages and it can integrate or differentiate the input voltage The respective circuits are called amplifiers summers integrators and differentiators Opamps are also used to make active frequency filters currenttovoltage converters voltagetocurrent converters current amplifiers voltage comparators etc etc These little parts are so versatile useful handy and cheap that they re kind of like electronic Lego blocks although somewhat drably colored Op amp characteristics Operational amplifiers have several very important characteristics that make them so Va An opamp has two inputs and it amplifies the voltage difference between those two inputs These two inputs are known as the noninverting input labeled and the inverting input labeled as shown in Vb Fig 1 The outputvoltage is a function of the noninverting inputvoltage minus the inverting input Figurei Opamp Symbol That is I Gwaer Where G voltage gain of the opamp a N The opamp must be connected to external sources of power not shown on the drawing above The output voltage v0 cannot be more positive than the positive ower source or more negative than the negative power source The gain G is very high typically more than 100000 Together that means that if the output VB is in the active range somewhere between its physical limits often called rails then va vb z 0 and v8 vb This is a very important point If you don t see this look back at the equation above v0 is limited G is very big so va vb must be very small If the output is The inputs must be In active range v8 v rail ltvO lt rai If the inputs are The output must be va gt vb rail va lt vb rail 3 In fact va vb must be so small that it s very difficult to make va amp vb close enough p1 ECE 2210 Opamp Notes without using some negative feedback Negative feedback makes the opamp maintain va z vb for itself With the proper negative feedback the opamp keeps va z vb so close that you can assume that va vb Without this negative feedback the opamp output will almost certainly be at one of its limits either high or low ie NOT in its active or linear range Incidentally circuits without negative feedback are also useful but then the output is either high or low digital and not linearly related to the input These types of circuits are called nonlinear circuits 9 Opamps amplify DC as well as AC 01 The input currents are almost zero In more technical terms the opamp has very high input impedance As long as you use reasonable resistor values in your circuits say 1 M0 you can neglect the input currents Simple isn39 tit OK so it doesn t sound so simple yet but the application of these characteristics really isn t hard Let s look at some circuits Linear Circuits Linear circuits employ negative feedback to keep va z vb If a circuit has a connection from the output to the inverting input then it has negative feedback V0 V0 Voltage follower The voltage follower shown in Fig 2 is probably the simplest linear opamp circuit Notice the feedback from the output to the inverting input If we were to Figure 2 Voltage follower hook the circuit input Va up to some voltage source say 2 volts DC what would happen If the output was lower than 2 V then the input voltage difference va vb would be positive and the huge gain of the opamp would drive the output higher If the output was higher than 2 V then va vb would be negative the output would go down Very quickly the output voltage v0 would change until va vb becomes very small Or basically until v0 2 V This is the concept of negative feedback A fraction in this case all of the output voltage is quotfed backquot to the input in order to control the gain of the opamp The opamp works very hard to maintain a very small difference between the voltages on its inputs This circuit is known as a voltage follower because the output follows the input Negative feedback is an important concept It is used in almost all systems including all natural systems A very simple example is the heating system in your house If the air temperature is too lowthe thermostat detects a difference between its setting and the air temperature and turns on the heater When the air temperature reaches the set temperature the thermostat turns off the heater negative feedback The servo system that you ve seen in lab is another example of negative feedback When the motor position sensor senses a different position than the input position sensor the circuit makes the motor turn in such a way that the difference is minimized and the positions line up p2 ECE 2210 Opamp Notes Noninverting amplifier Now suppose we feed back only a fraction of the output voltage rather than all of it The method used for this is shown in Fig 3 R1 and RT constitute a voltage divider Remember the current flowing into an op amp input is virtually nil so we can neglect its effect on the voltage divider This is one of the very nice features of an op amp In this circuit as in the voltage follower the op amp works very hard to keep va vb very small Only now vb is a fraction of V0 and the op amp has to make vO that much larger Figure 3 Noninverting amplifier F1 VinVaVb Vo 39 R1Rf For all practlcal R1Rf Rf purposes VDV 1 1 Notice that by adjusting the ratio of Rf and R we can make the gain of the op amp circuit almost anything we want sn tthat neat The circuit in Fig 3 is called a noninverting amplifier because the output voltage is in phase with the input voltage that is it is not inverted When the input voltage increases the output voltage will also increase and vice versa Yes noninverting is a double negative and kind of a dumb name Inverting amplifier Before going on observe that I ve swapped the positions of the two inputs amp on my op amp symbol Either way of drawing the op amp is OK whatever makes the whole schematic look better The noninverting input is on the bottom in this case because it s hooked to ground Draw the op amp so that the surrounding circuitry is clear Figure 4 Inverting amplifier The op amp output is still connected to the inverting input so again we have negative feedback If vb gt v3 then the output will go down taking vb with it until vb va f vb lt v3 then the output will go up until vb va Negative feedback makes the op amp do its best to equalize its inputs In this circuit v3 O which means that the op amp will try to keep vb O as well The current into the op amp is zero so iIn and if must be the same if im Using these two ideas together ijn V quot 00 V0 vi v R Rf D R In in in The minus sign means that vO will be inverted with respect to vm hence the name of this amplifier When vIn is positive V0 is negative and when vm is negative V0 is positive The gain of the inverting amplifier like that of the noninverting amplifier is completely dependent on our choices of RT and Rm p3 ECE 2210 Op amp Notes Summer The inverting amplifier can also be used as a summing amplifier that is it can be made to add the effects of several input voltages together Look at the circuit in Fig 5 if i1i2i3 I v0 v1 v2 v3 7 7 7 f R R R2 R3 Figure5 Summer V0 7iv1 7 ivz 7 iv3 The summer can be expanded to any number R1 R2 R3 of inputs See This is getting easier Differentiator Rf The differentiator looks an awful lot like the inverting amplifier and is analyzed in a very similar V C ll l dv v 1070 Ie dt R CRfdV V 0 dt lntegr ator Another useful op amp circuit is the integrator shown in Fig 7 For this circuit 1 7 7 dt V0 CRiann Figure 7 Integrator Unfortunately The simple integrator does have one little practical problem Notice that if the input voltage has any dc component the output voltage will soon try to run off to infinity Actually it will stop when the op amp reaches one of its output limits either negative or positive A resistor is usually placed in parallel with the capacitor to eliminate this rather annoying effect The circuit in Fig 8 has such a resistor This is a running average or Miller integrator Figure 8 Practical integrator p4 ECE 2210 Op amp Notes Active Filters If you replace the resistors in the inverting and noninverting amplifiers with frequency dependant impedances capacitors andor inductors you can make all sorts of frequency dependant circuits including filters In fact the differentiator and integrator circuits can be thought of as filters One of the main advantages of active filters is that you don t need to use inductors Real inductors are far from ideal as you ve no doubt observed in lab Real capacitors are much closer to ideal capacitors and they re cheaper than inductors Entire books are devoted to these active filters and we won t cover them any further here Differential amplifier This circuit amplifies only the difference R between the two inputs In this circuit Va f V2 Vb f V1V0 V0 there are two resistors labeled R which RinTRf RinTRf means that their values are equal Same goes for the two Rf s F F R 3 f V2 f 1V0 m fvo anTR anTR RinRf RVz RVr 39 Riva T Rinvo T Riva RVz RVr T Rinvo V2 V1 0 9 3 Figure 10 Differential amplifier Don t confuse the differential amplifier with the differentiator The differential amplifier amplifies the difference of two inputs while the differentiator amplifies the slope of an input Vi Instrumentation Amplifier The differential amplifier isn t really very practical The current that flows into the top input depends on the voltage applied to the bottom input This may not seem that bad but it is It means that the input characteristics of this circuit are not constant One way to get around this would be to place a voltage follower on each input as shown here Figure 9 Buffered differential amplifier p5 ECE 2210 Opamp Notes Now this is a perfectly good circuit If the two Rs are closely matched and the two Rms are also closely matched then this circuit will amplify differential voltages very well and reject common voltages a voltage that is common to both inputs should subtract out of the equation In EE terms it has a good CommonModeRejection Ration CMRR But what if you want to change the gain You d have to change two resistors at the same time By adding two more matched resistors and variable resistor we ll get the instrumentation amplifier shown at right The equation for this circuit is V0 2H H v 1 2 4 v a v o H1H32 1 This is an important circuit and you will probably see it again many times For instance if you had to amplify the output of a wheatstone bridge of stain gages this would be the amp for the job Figure 11 Instrumentation amplifier V Opamp with extra current amplification Most opamps cannot supply much current to the load They are often limited to 10 or 20 mA about enough to light an LED but not much more That can br very limiting The circuit at right shows a quick and dirty way to use two transistors to greatly increase the load current at a small cost in output voltage swing Notice that the feedback is taken from the output of the transistors so they sortof become part of the opamp and the opamp will do a pretty good job of eliminating the crossover deadzone that occurs as one transistor turns off and the other turn on Vin I V Figure 12 How to get more current This particular circuit is a simple voltage follower You can adapt this same current amplification to most of the other opamp circuits that we have discussed A few words of warning however The extra delay in the feedback can result in instabilities Try it with the parts you intend to use before you depend on this design Also if you use a low quality op amp with a slow slew rate you can get significant crossover distortion p6 ECE 2210 Opamp Notes Nonlinear Circuits In all cases so far the feedback signal voltage has been applied to the inverting input of the opamp This means that the feedback is negative Negative feedback tends to reduce the difference between the va and vb voltages and make linear circuits Without negative feedback the opamp cannot minimize the difference between va and vb and the very high sensitivity of the opamp results in switching or nonlinear circuits Comparator Now look at Fig 14 This circuit will not work as a linear circuit lf va gt 0 the output will be as high as the opamp can make it usually a volt or two below the positive power supply lf va lt 0 the output will be as low as the opamp can make it usually a volt or two above the negative power supply The output is no longer linearly related to the input it s more like a digital signal f high or low depending on how vm compares to ground 0 V Figure 13 Comparator The comparator is a nonlinear circuit Figure 14 Other comparators All the circuits above are also comparators In the first circuit the input is again compared to ground but this time the output goes low when the input goes high and viseversa In the remaining circuits the input is compared not to 0 V but to some voltage set by the voltage divider of Fl1 and R2 Schmitt trigger The Schmitt trigger is a variation of the simple comparator which has hysteresis that is it has a toggle action When the output is high positive feedback makes the switching level higherthan it is when the output is low A little positive feedback makes a comparator with better noise immunity Increase the positive feedback and the Schmitt trigger can be used in other switching applications Look at the Schmitt ttrigger circuit shown at right Notice i that va Fl1Fl1 Rfv0 it depends on the output Lets say Figure 15 Schmitt trigger p7 ECE 2210 Opamp Notes the output ts tow and the tnput ts

Transistor switches are the basisfor all digital circuits but that39 s probably not where you39 ll use the transistor More likely you39 ll want to control a highcurrent device like a motor with arintegratedcircuit output from acomputer or logic circuit The small integrated circuit won39 the able to sup l enou h current to run e motor so you39 ll use a transistor to switch the larger current that flows through the motor The input is hooked to the base of the transistor Often through a current limiting resistor since VR will only e 07V when the transistor is on A small IB can switch on the much larger l0 and VCE can be as low as 02V Vcc The terminal marked V99 above isjust a circuit terminal hooked to a power supply drawn in dotted lines here but usually not shown at all Power supply wires like ground wires are often not shown explicitly on schematics It makes the schematics a little less cluttered and easier to read Diode If you39 re switching an inductive load like a motor you should add adiode so that you39 re not trying to switch off the motor current instantly The diode called a flyback diode when used like this 39 hed off provides a path for the current still flowing

Transistor Notes am pa The objective of bias then is to partially turn on the transistor to turn it sortof halfway on Now if I twiddle i3 i0 will show a similar but bigger twiddle that39 s the whole idea The transistor should never go into cutoff for any expected input signal otherwise you39 ll gecipping at the output Clipping is a form of distortion where the output no longer looks like the input Furthermore the transistor must not saturate That will also cause clipping at the output Because 5 can vary widely from transistor to transistor of the same part number and V5 changes with temperature achieving a stable bias can be a bit of a problem Usually an emitter resistor RE is needed to stabilize the bias DC Analysis in the active region DC analysis applies to both switching and bias although the circuits we39 ll look at here will include an RE and we39 ll be working in the active region meaning they are bias circuits The key to DC analysis with an RE is usually finding VB The circuit at right shows a typical bias arrangement The equations below are for that circuit adapt them as necessary to fit your actual circuit If you can neglect IB Often in duick anddirty analysis you can neglect the base current IE In that case V E R B2 VB VCci VE VB707V 1E 71C VC VCC71CRC RB1 R B2 R E This assumption is OK if RB1 ll RB2 ltlt BR E Quick check RB1lt 10RE andor RB2 lt 10R E

the base39 5 pointofview the emitter resistor will look 1 times bigger than it really is This is because 3 1 times as much current flows through REthan into the base We can ignore the fact that the current is bigger if we pretend that the resistor is bigger That leads to the simplified circuit Usuall we use 3 as the factor ratherthan 13 1 after all Blust isn39 tthat well known anyway VBB707V 1B

some unpredictable fashion DC is not a signal Neither is a pure sine wave If you can predict it what information is it providing Neither DC nor pure sine wave have any quotbandwidthquot Recall Fourier
