1 1 Circuit Design and Examples Design Guidelines –Objectives –Sensor –Signal Conditioning Example Instrumentation Amplifiers –AD620 OpAmps –Op07 (modern) –LM741 (ancient)

2 2 Design Guidelines-1 Define the measurement objective –Parameter: What do you need to measure: pressure, temperature, flow, level, etc –Range: What is the range of the measurements? F, psi, volts –Accuracy: What accuracy is desired and what specification of accuracy will be used? 5% of Full Scale or 2% of the reading. –Linearity: Must the measurement be linear? –Noise: How much noise is allowed?

3 3 Design Guidelines-2 Select the sensor/transducer –Parameters: What is the input and output of the transducer? E.g. pressure in resistance out, temperature in voltage out, light in current out –Transfer Function: Output/input relationship? –Time Response: 1 st order, 2 nd order? –Range: What is the possible range of sensor parameters? C, 3-15 psi, etc –Power: What is the power specification of the sensor? Sensor Definition in Engineering: the component of an instrument that converts an input signal into a quantity that is measured by another part of the instrument and changed into a useful signal for an information-gathering system. A transducer is an electronic device that converts energy from one form to another. Common examples include microphones, loudspeakers, thermometers, position and pressure sensors, and antenna. Although not generally thought of as transducers, photocells, LEDs (light-emitting diodes), and even common light bulbs are transducers.antenna

4 4 Design Guidelines-3 Analog Signal Conditioning –Parameter of output? Voltage, current, pressure, frequency –Range? 0-5V, 3-15psi, 4-20mA, Hz –Input impedance of the signal conditioning circuit? Many sensors require a specific impedance input or a range of allowable inputs –Output impedance to the next stage?

5 5 Example: Problem 2.33 in text My solution (check the solution manual for the author’s solution) 2.33: A bridge circuit has R1=R2=R3=120 ohms and V=10.0 volts. Design a signal conditioning system that provides an output of 0 to 5 volts as R4 varies from 120 to 140 ohms. Plot V out vs R4. Evaluate the linearity AAB Desired output is V A-B

10 10 Instrumentation Amplifiers Analog Devices Inc. is the largest supplier of instrumentation amplifiers in the world. The AD620 is a low cost, high accuracy instrumentation amplifier which requires only one external resistor to set gains of 1 to Furthermore, the AD620 offers lower power (only 1.3 mA max supply current), making it a good fit for battery powered, portable (or remote) applications. The AD620, with its high accuracy of 40 ppm maximum nonlinearity, low offset voltage of 50 µV max and offset drift of 0.6 µV/°C max, is ideal for use in precision data acquisition systems, such as weigh scales and transducer interfaces. The low noise, low input bias current, and low power of the AD620 also make it well suited for medical applications such as ECG and noninvasive blood pressure monitors. The low input bias current of 1.0 nA max is made possible with the use of Superbeta processing in the input stage. The AD620 works well as a preamplifier due to its low input voltage noise of 9 nV/Hz at 1 kHz, 0.28 µV p-p in the 0.1 Hz to 10 Hz band, 0.1 pA/µHz input current noise. The AD620 is also well suited for multiplexed applications with its settling time of 15 µs to 0.01% and its cost is low enough to enable designs with one in amp per channel.

13 13 AD620 vs opamp Make vs. Buy: A Typical Bridge Application Error Budget The AD620 offers improved performance over “homebrew” three op amp IA designs, along with smaller size, fewer components and lower supply current. In the typical application, a gain of 100 is required to amplify a bridge output of 20 mV full scale over the industrial temperature range of –40°C to +85°C. Regardless of the system in which it is being used, the AD620 provides greater accuracy, and at low power and price. Note that for the homebrew circuit, the OP07 specifications for input voltage offset and noise have been multiplied by 2, because a three op amp type in-amp has two op amps at its inputs.

15 15 Op07 vs LM741 The OP-07 has very low input offset voltage (25µV max for OP- 07A) which is obtained by trimming at the wafer stage. These low offset voltages generally eliminate any need for external nulling. The OP-07 also features low input bias current (±2nA for OP- 07A) and high open-loop gain (300V/mV for the OP-07A). The low offsets and high open-loop gain make the OP-07 particularly useful for high-gain instrumentation applications. The wide input voltage range of ±13V minimum combined with the high CMRR of 110dB (OP-07A) and high input impedance provides high accuracy in the non-inverting circuit configuration. Excellent linearity and gain accuracy can be maintained even at high closed-loop gains. The OP-07 is available in five standard performance grades. The LM741 series are general purpose operational amplifiers which feature improved performance over industry standards like the LM709. They are direct, plug-in replacements for the 709C, LM201, MC1439 and 748 in most applications.

23 23 Number Systems BITS A bit is the smallest element of information used by a computer. A bit holds ONE of TWO possible values: 0 meaning Off/False/NotSet and 1 meaning On/True/Set Boolean Values Boolean algebra recognizes True and False. So a single bit can represent a Boolean variable. NIBBLE A nibble is a group of FOUR bits. This gives a maximum number of 16 possible different values. 2 ^ 4 = 16 LSB and MSB: The Least Significant Bit (LSB) is always drawn at the extreme right and has the least value and the Most Significant Bit (MSB) is always shown on the extreme left, and is the bit with the greatest value.

24 24 Number Systems BYTES Bytes are a grouping of 8 bits. This comprises TWO nibbles. Binary Coded Decimal [BCD] Binary code decimal digits (0-9) are represented using FOUR bits. The valid combinations of bits and their respective values are 0000 through 1001 with the binary combinations 1010 to 1111 not used. If the computer stores one BCD digit per byte, its called normal BCD. The unused nibble may be all 0's or all 1's. Packed BCD: If two BCD digits are stored per byte, its called Packed BCD. This occurs in data transmission where numbers are being transmitted over a communications link. Packed BCD reduces the amount of time spent transmitting the numbers, as each data byte transmitted results in the sending of two BCD digits.

25 25 Number Systems Hexadecimal Refers to the base-16 number system, which consists of 16 unique symbols: the numbers 0 to 9 and the letters A to F. e.g. decimal 15 is represented as F in hexadecimal. This is useful because it can represent a byte (8 bits) as two hexadecimal digits. It is easier to read hexadecimal numbers than binary numbers.systemdecimalbytebitsbinary To convert a value from hexadecimal to binary, translate each hexadecimal digit into its 4-bit binary equivalent. Hexadecimal numbers have either an 0x prefix or an h suffix. For example, the hexadecimal number 0x3F7A translates to the following binary number: convert

26 26 Multiplication/Division Multiplication by 10: Shifting left in decimal multiplies by 10. E.g Multiplication by 2: Shifting left in binary multiplies by 2. E.g which translates to Division works the same way in that shifting right divides by 10 in decimal, 2 in binary, 8 in octal, and 16 in hexadecimal.

Open-drain refers to the drain terminal of a MOS FET transistor. The equivalent concept on a bipolar device is called open-collector.
