Demonstrate circuit analysis techniques for ideal op amps. Characterize inverting, non-inverting, summing and difference amplifiers, voltage follower and integrator. Learns factors involved in circuit design using op amps. 2

Ideal Operation Amplifier (Op Amp)
Ideal op amps are assumed to have infinite voltage gain, and infinite input resistance. These conditions lead to two assumptions useful in analyzing ideal op amp circuits: 1. The voltage difference across the input terminals is zero. 2. The input currents are zero.

Ideal Op Amp Example Writing a loop equation:
From assumption 2, we know that i- = 0. Assumption 1 requires v- = v+ = 0. Combining these equations yields: Assumption 1 requiring v- = v+ = 0 creates what is known as a virtual ground.

Ideal Op Amp Example (Alternative Approach)
Writing a loop equation: From assumption 2, we know that i- = 0. Assumption 1 requires v- = v+ = 0. Combining these equations yields: Design Note: The virtual ground is not an actual ground. Do not short the inverting input to ground to simplify analysis.

Operational Amplifier Complete Model
Represented by: A= open-circuit voltage gain vid = (v+-v-) = differential input signal voltage Rid = amplifier input resistance Ro = amplifier output resistance Signal developed at amplifier output is in phase with the voltage applied at + input (non-inverting) terminal and 1800 out of phase with that applied at - input (inverting) terminal. 3

Operational Amplifier Mathematical Model: With Source and Load
RL = load resistance RS = Thevenin equivalent resistance of signal source vs = Thevenin equivalent voltage of signal source and Op amp circuits are mostly dc-coupled amplifiers. Signals vo and vs may have a dc component representing a dc shift of the input away from Q-point. Op-amp amplifies both dc and ac components. 4

Ideal Operational Amplifier
Ideal op amp is a special case of ideal differential amplifier with infinite gain, infinite Rid and zero Ro . and If A is infinite, vid is zero for any finite output voltage. Vid = 0, v+=v- (Virtual Short Model) Infinite input resistance Rid forces input currents i+ and i- to be zero. Summary, Ideal op amp has following assumptions: A=∞ , Where A is Open-loop gain i- = i+ = 0, Input resistance is infinite Zero output resistance Infinite bandwidth +VS i- V- - V o Vid = V+ - V- A V+ + i+ -VS 8

Inverting Amplifier: Configuration
Positive input is grounded. Feedback network, resistors R1 and R2 connected between inverting input and signal source and amplifier output node respectively. 9

Inverting Amplifier:Voltage Gain
Negative voltage gain implies 1800 phase shift between dc/sinusoidal input and output signals. Gain greater than 1 if R2 > R1 Gain less than 1 if R1 > R2 Inverting input of op amp is at ground potential (not connected directly to ground) and is said to be at virtual ground. But is=i2 and v-=0 (since vid=v+-v-=0) and 10

Inverting Amplifier: Example

Non-inverting Amplifier: Configuration
Input signal is applied to the non-inverting input terminal. Portion of the output signal is fed back to the negative input terminal. Analysis is done by relating voltage at v1 to input voltage vs and output voltage vo . 12

Non-inverting Amplifier:Voltage Gain, Input Resistance and Output Resistance
Since i-=0 and But vid =0 Since i+=0 Rout is found by applying a test current source to amplifier output and setting vs = 0 and is identical to the output resistance of inverting amplifier i.e. Rout =0 13

Unity-gain Buffer A special case of non-inverting amplifier, also called voltage follower with infinite R1 and zero R2. Hence Av =1. Provides excellent impedance-level transformation while maintaining signal voltage level. Ideal voltage buffer does not require any input current and can drive any desired load resistance without loss of signal voltage. Unity-gain buffer is used in may sensor and data acquisition systems. 14

Summing Amplifier Since i-=0, i3= i1 + i2,
Scale factors for the 2 inputs can be independently adjusted by proper choice of R2 and R1. Any number of inputs can be connected to summing junction through extra resistors. This is an example of a simple digital-to-analog converter. Since negative amplifier input is at virtual ground, 15

Difference Amplifier Assume an ideal op-amp
vi2 = 0 v+ = 0 = v-, vo(1) = -R2.vi1 (inverting amplifier) R1 Vi1 = 0 V+ = R4. vi2, vo(2) = (1+ R2/R1) . R4.vi2 R3 + R R3+R4 non-inverting amplifier vo = vo(1) + vo(2) = (1+ R2). R4 vi R2.Vi1 R1 R3 + R R1 Assume an ideal op-amp Use the superposition theory

Difference Amplifiers
In order to provide equal gain for both inputs vo = -R2/R1 (v1 – v2) (1 + R2 ) . R = R2 R1 R3 + R R1 R4/R3 = R2/R Balance Condition

Difference Amplifier For R2= R1
Also called a differential subtractor, amplifies difference between input signals. Rin2 is series combination of R1 and R2 because i+ is zero. For v2=0, Rin1= R1, as the circuit reduces to an inverting amplifier. For general case, i1 is a function of both v1 and v2. 18

Non-ideal Operational Amplifier
Various error terms arise in practical operational amplifiers due to non-ideal behavior. Some of the non-ideal characteristics include: √ Finite open-loop gain that causes gain error Nonzero output resistance Finite input resistance Finite CMRR Common-mode input resistance √ DC error sources √ Output voltage and current limits 20
