IV Frequency Dependent Imperfections. This criterion is easy to meet at DC, but is problematic at higher frequencies because the open-loop gain decreases with frequency. Its gain is unity at 5MHz. Normally these phase shifts are corrected by feedback, and do not result in overall phase shifts.
Certain feedback networks contribute their own phase shifts. For this reason, perfect differentiators cannot be built. The maximum rate at which an op amp can change its output is called its slew rate. An op amp with a high small-signal frequency response at low amplitude may have a lousy slew rate, and would not be useful with high amplitude, high frequency signals.
Bipolar Junction Transistors. Bipolar junction transistors BJTs are the most common type of discrete transistor. Built with two adjacent junctions, bipolar transistors come in two flavors: NPN transistors consist of a p-type semiconductor layer sandwiched between two n layers, and PNP transistors consist of a central n-type layer sandwiched between two p layers. The central layer is called the base, and is the controlling lead.
The two outer layers are the emitter and collector. BJT circuit schematics are shown to the right. The two types are differentiated by the small arrow on the emitter, which indicates the direction of positive current flow in normal operation. The base is the lead in between. Note that the collector is connected to the case. Complete specifications for these transistors are available on the BSC web site.
The physics of bipolar transistors is much more complicated than that of field effect transistors, and we will not attempt to explain it here. The base corresponds to the gate, the emitter to the source, and the collector to the drain, and the base controls the current between the collector and the emitter.
In fact, the base-emitter junction looks like a forward-biased diode junction. However, BJTs often have higher transconductance, smaller piece-to-piece variations, and, in some situations, lower noise than FETs. The BJT follower and push-pull circuits used in this lab can be analyzed by assuming that their transistors are off when V BE is less than 0. More complicated circuits require more sophisticated transistors models.
Very briefly, two such models are:. Beta depends on the particular model of transistor and is typically in the range 50 to This model is called the Ebers-Moll model and, with some additional bells and whistles, is the model used in Spice. In the lab. Problem 8. Note that the amplifier's input is grounded, so, if the op amp was ideal, its output voltage would be zero. Measure the circuit's actual output voltage. This circuit has a high gain. Watch how the offset drifts with time just use the aproximate initial offset for comparison purposes.
Is this a temperature effect? Investigate with circuit cooler. Pick an op amp with a relatively high drift. These pins are sometimes called the trim, null or offset pins. Minimize the input offset voltage by adjusting the trimming potentiometer.
How low can you get the offset? After adjusting, watch the output for several minutes. Does the output drift? FET op amps would not be used in applications where these are are critical parameters. Bipolar op amps tend to have much lower voltage offsets and drifts. The input bias current is a current that appears to come out of the op amp inputs.
If this current is forced to run through a high resistance, an unwanted offset will appear on the output. Then remove the short and quickly measure and record the change in the output voltage. Calculate the input bias current from your measurement and from the resistance of the unshorted resistor. This is a detail that you do not have to understand.
As you should have just measured, JFET op amps have a relatively low current bias. However, bipolar amps generally have a lower input offset voltage; there is not one best op amp for all applications. We will measure this circuit's closed loop gain as a function of frequency closed loop gain means the gain at the output with feedback applied. Because the amplifier's gain is so large, it must be driven with a very small signal.
Plot your results. The open loop gain of the LF is very high, and is difficult to measure. The open loop gain is the intrinsic gain of the op amp ignoring any feedback. We will measure the open loop gain of op amp U1 in the circuit at right, which uses op amps U2 and U3 as amplifiers to make the open loop gain measurable. By convention, op amps are often labeled with a U followed by a number.
The open loop gain can be calculated from the formula. You may have to increase the gain of U3. Note that the offsets studied in the earlier exercises will produce DC offsets in the measured signal. Ignore these DC offsets; measure only the peak to peak oscillating signals. Here, use the output of U2 directly. Use scope probes for all your measurements. Check to make sure that your signal really is related to your drive by turning on and off the signal generator.
If the signal doesn't disappear with the signal generator off, then the signal is just noise. You can use averaging use the maximum number of averages, and external triggering to find the real signal. What is the function of U2? Draw the resulting output. Using several different load resistors, measure the maximum output current. Does it depend on R L? Obtain a speaker from the laboratory staff, and drive it with the following a m plifier.
Handle the speaker carefully! The black-paper speaker cone tears easily. Drive the amplifier with the wavefunction generator, and look at the output on the scope. What do sine, square and triangular waves sound like? What is the maximum amplitude with which you can drive the speaker without distortion? How does the output amplitude distort when you exceed that amplitude? Is the speaker loud? Switch the input to the T2 line, which provides an audio input signal.
Is the quality acceptable? Optional: In this and subsequent exercises, you may improve the sound volume and quality markedly by mounting the speaker on an inside wall of a cardboard box. At the location of the speaker, cut a hole in the box wall matching the diameter of the speaker cone. Even a small box, or any such enclosure, will be benificial. The output current limit can be increased by using the op amp to drive a bipolar fo l lower.
With a sine wave input, how does the output change as the input amplitude is varied from 0. Draw all the qualitatively different output waveforms that you observe. Does the speaker emit a pure sine note at all amplitudes? What is the sound quality when the amplifier is driven by T2? How does the output change as the input amplitude is varied from 0. What sort of input waveforms would this circuit amplify without distortion?
Simulate the schematic for input amplitudes of 0. Explain all the differences between the waveforms i n clu d ing: 1 The large offset at 0. Look at and listen to the output for a variety of input signals. For Hz, 0. What is the origin of the crossover distortion? Now include the push-pull output stage in the feedback loop. Has the crossover distortion diminished? With the T2 audio signal, change the feedback point back and forth between the op amp output and the push-pull output.
Can you tell the difference in the sound quality? Slightly more complicated push-pull amplifiers can be designed that have very little crossover or other distortion. Push-pull amplifiers are extremely common, and are found everywhere from the output of op amps to the output of power stereo amps.
You will need to borrow a commercial preamp. You should as k lab staff for the preamp. Set the preamp gain to , its low-pass filter to kHz, and its high pass filter to 1kHz. You can use the RMS function on the digital multimeters, but there is a useful way of guessing the RMS voltage: Watch the noise on the scope, and get some sense of the maximum peak-to-peak signal. It turns out the RMS signal is approximately equal to the typical maximum peak-to-peak signal divided by six.
Try it both ways. Once again, find the RMS level. If you can find a sine wave on the scope, you are not measuring Johnson noise, you are measuring pickup on a large impedance in a noisy environment. Explore different types of noise with the LabView program Noise Generator. Take a look at the amplitude histogram in the lower left corner; as expected, the noise is Gaussian.
Generate several new data sets, and note how they all sound alike. Is the amplitude histogram still gaussian? These two methods of generating noise are formally identical. These two types of noise are quite different mathematically, but sound almost the same. This will produce white noise whose maximum frequency is Hz. Can you explain why? Op-amps also come in many, many different design options, so choosing the right one can be difficult.
Should you use an OP37 or LM? You decide you want really high speed, so you choose the OP But which version? Will you need more than one in your design? If so, should you use singles, duals, or quads? Of course each one has it's own datasheet, so it can be difficult to do comparisons easily. Just to give you an idea, I've included an Excel spreadsheet with just a few parameters listed to show the wide range of ICs available.
It is not an exhaustive listing of all specs, just some basic data. By comparing some of the data, we can see that the op-amp is not very high speed low slew rate , nor does it have a high gain-bandwidth product GBP. The OP37 however has a much much, much higher slew rate and GBP, so it can be used over a much wider range of frequencies than can the The other ICs all fall somewhere in the spectrum of speed vs reliability vs Each one has it's own application, and it's up to you to decide how you want to use it.
For most applications though, pretty much any op-amp will work. If you are designing something that is on the extreme end e. For more information about op-amps, see this website. Since this is more of a guide than a specific project, the parts and tools list can vary widely. That being said, I've listed the basic components that I'm using.
These tools can be expensive and take up a lot of space, so I recommend the Digilent Analog Discovery or the Electronics Explorer Board , both of which contain all three in one simple, easy to use package. They both require the free Waveforms software. I will be using the Discovery, so all scope images will be screen shots from that.
The last image is of a op-amp pin-out diagram, which is the chip I will be using. Double check the pin-out diagram for the op-amp you want to use, especially multiple op-amp packages. Positive voltage from your power supply connects to pin 7 and the negative to pin 4.
Pin 2 is the inverting input and pin 3 is the non-inverting input. Pin 6 is the output. Pins 1 and 5 are the offset null pins, which are rarely used and so will not be covered in depth here as most op-amps don't even have them, especially in larger dual and quad packages. Pin 8 is not connected. One of the most basic uses for op-amps is the voltage follower or buffer image 1. This will buffer the previous part of your design from too much current draw while allowing the output voltage to exactly follow the input.
Put a jumper wire between pins 2 and 6. Connect pin 3 to your input signal. For an example of this little gem in action, see step 6 in this Instructable. Without the voltage follower, the output waveform is distorted due to the transistor characteristics. Amplifiers are another basic function of op-amps. First we look at the inverting configuration in image 1. Technically the gain is considered to be negative for an inverting amplifier, but most applications will not be dependent on the phase of the input signal, so inverting it won't affect the outcome, and thus the negative sign can be ignored.
R2 goes across the IC between pins 2 and 6. One end of R1 goes to pin 2 while the other end is where the input signal connects. Pin 3 is connected to ground. From the o-scope image you can see that the input red is about mV, while the output is 2V, which is what we want image 3.
Next is the non-inverting configuration image 4. The output phase matches the input phase, but the gain is slightly higher. Build: Same power connections as before, but this time we simply switch where the input and ground connections go. Ground goes to the resistor tied to pin 2 and the input goes directly to pin 3 image 5. Image 6 shows the o-scope data, and we can see that the phases now match, but the output blue is slightly higher than it was before because of that extra 1 we get from the gain equation.
It is entirely possible to realize a gain of , or more with most op-amps. That would convert a 1 millivolt signal to volts. That can be very useful in circuits where the input is extremely low, like microphones, flex sensors, medical devices, etc.
The problem is that the input resistance is based solely on the value of R1. If your doctor connects a sensor to your brain please don't, it's just an example , you probably don't want to be drawing too much current, right? That's a lot and can be difficult to realize, especially with even higher gains. The equation is shown in the image. Electronic filters are everywhere, in almost everything we use. AM and FM radio signals must filter the carrier wave see this Instructable for more on that.
The signal coming through your phone filters out frequencies above 6kHz since the human voice can't get that high and there is no need to pass them through. Op-amps provide a very easy way to implement very effective filters. There are several types of filters, with hybrid variations as well. Low-pass filters allow low frequency signals to pass through, from DC up to the cutoff frequency, while attenuating high frequencies. High-pass filters allow high frequencies to pass and attenuate lower frequencies.
Pass-band filters allow a certain range of frequencies to pass and cutoff frequencies above and below the two corner frequencies. Stop-band filters cutoff a certain window of frequencies and allow those above and below the corner frequencies to pass. For first order filters the cutoff frequency is not a sharp drop, looking more like a gradual slope on a logarithmic graph, so some passage of frequencies into the cutoff region will happen up to a certain point.
By adding several filters in series, you increase the overall order of the filter and this cutoff slope can become very steep, in fact almost vertical if built properly. The math behind all of that is rather involved, relying heavily on a good understanding of differential equations and transfer functions , so I won't get into that. Image 1 is of a low-pass filter. First determine the highest frequency you want to pass through the filter. This is your cutoff f. For this example, let's arbitrarily choose f to be 2kHz.
I've found that choosing the capacitor and building a resistor network to match is easier than the other way around. So let's choose a nF ceramic disc capacitor. Doing the math gives a value for R of Remember that some frequencies above the cutoff f will leak through, so getting close should be good. Build: Connect the power pins as before. Ground pin 3. Image 2. Using your o-scope, observe the input and output on the same scale and observe how it attenuates at higher frequencies.
Images 3, 4, and 5. High-pass filters are similar to low-pass, the only difference being where we put the capacitor image 1. The equation for determining cutoff frequency f is the same, but this time frequencies below the cutoff will attenuate and higher frequencies will pass.
Build: The only thing you have to do is move the capacitor in between the input signal and the input resistors. Image 2 Images 3, 4, and 5 show the effect this circuit has on the signal at Hz, 2kHz, and 20kHz respectively. Band-pass filters are a combination of a low-pass and high-pass filters image 1. First determine your band-pass region, i. These are the two corner frequencies we want to use in our calculations. Let's use Hz and 2kHz. Using the same equation as before, and choosing either R or C, we can determine the other.
It may be easier to choose R2 and R1 according to the gain you want to achieve and then calculate C1 and C2 based on that. It is perfectly acceptable to choose whatever cutoff frequencies and gain you want, within the limitations of the op-amp.
This makes C1 10nF and C2 nF Build: Connect power as before. Place one resistor series across pins 2 and 6, as well as the 10nF ceramic capacitor. Tie one end of the other resistor series into pin 2 with the nF capacitor on the between the input and the resistors. There are five points on the o-scope to highlight here.
Below the lower cutoff frequency image 3 , at the lower cutoff image 4 , in between the two cutoff frequencies image 5 , at the higher cutoff image 6 , and beyond the higher cutoff image 7. Image 8 shows a generic schematic that will achieve the same results, but uses two filters cascaded together.
The first part is the high-pass filter, followed by the low-pass filter. By placing the HP filter first, the LP filter will attenuate any high frequency anomalies that may come through if we switch them. Also, each part can have it's own gain, which may make it easier to construct from parts on hand. Stop-band filters , or band-reject filters, are those that filter a specific frequency or band of frequencies but let higher and lower frequencies pass. These are definitely more difficult to design but are very useful if you are experiencing noise at a specific frequency range in your circuit that you want to filter out.
One variation is the notch filter, which is used to filter specific frequencies, like the noise from Hz AC mains lines. With a band-pass filter, we could build two separate filters, one high-pass and one low-pass, and then cascade them one after the other. That was possible because their pass-band regions overlap, but this is not the case with stop-band filters.
We still use a LP and HP filter, but they must be placed in parallel and then a third op-amp is configured as a weighted summer more on that later and the two signals are added together to produce the output. Image 1 shows the schematic. To design, we first need to know what range of frequencies will be blocked.
Set the lower cutoff frequency as the cutoff for the LP filter and the higher cutoff as the cutoff for HP filter. This is the reverse of how we designed the band-pass filter. Using a nF capacitor and 4. Using a 1nF cap and 4.
From there, put the two outputs through the summer and your're done. Connect the LP filter as before. Then connect the HP filter as before. The outputs will then go to the summer input as shown in the schematic. See image 2. Images 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 show the output at 34Hz, Hz, 3. That is very significant. Also note that image 7 is showing more of a triangle wave than a sine wave. This is due to the low slew rate of the ua op-amp. In short, it can't change the output as fast as the input is changing, so it's playing 'catch-up' the whole time.
Image 8 shows the same output, but this time using one OP27 and two OP37 op-amps, which have a much higher slew-rate.
