Operational Amplifiers Digital Simulation Nate Moehring
Operational Amplifiers Used in amplifiers, attenuators, and filters Ideal Properties of an Op Amp: Infinite open-loop gain, A ol = infinity Infinite input impedance, R in = infinity Zero output impedance, R out = 0 Zero noise contribution Zero DC output offset Infinite bandwidth, infinite frequency response Both differential inputs stick together
Why use op amps? Extremely high gain (10,000x) Infinite input resistance good for adding multiple sources (0 current = 0 voltage drop) Develop high pole filters
Transistors Bipolar Junction Transistors BJT (npn) Uses a small amount of current to allow a large amount of current to pass through it. (Amplifier) (Flood gate) Also used as on/off switch. (Transistor Transistor Logic (TTL)) Bipolar.olb Base Collector Emitter
NOT Gate These TTL representations are greatly simplified for logical interpretation and are not meant for actual implementation as seen here.
Digital Simulation Use Bias Point calculations manually changing VDCs Use Bussed STIM sources to perform transient analysis. Get digital components from 74ac (pro) or Eval library (student)
Using STIM sources Use STIM4 from source library Draw bus wire Place Net Alias ON bus, ie. A[0:3] Use Bus Entry tool to extract lines Name lines using Place Net Alias Double click STIM4 to create pattern Probe input and outputs Run transient simulation
Voter Problem Build using 74xx logic gates Input manually using VDC sources and view outputs using Bias Voltages Input using STIM4 providing all possible input combinations.
