Historical Roots

## • Originally designed for use in analog computers.

• These amplifiers allowed simple implementation of
transfer functions.
• A resistor input and a capacitor feedback makes an
operational amplifier into an integrator.
• These can be combined with adders and inverters to
solve differential equations.

Typical Operational Amplifier
• Operates with inputs and
outputs between the supply
voltages. +Vs

## • Differential input stage.

• Constant current sink allows
inputs to track over a wide
range without changing the
output.
• After intermediate amplification,
the output is driven through a
half-bridge or totem pole output -Vs

stage.

Operational Amplifier Usage

in low power applications.
– Fewer components
– Ideal response
– Low cost
– For limited frequency circuits.

Design Considerations
• Input offset voltage and bias currents are amplified by the amplifier
itself.
• Input signal voltages usually can not go within a few volts of the supply
rails.
• If the negative supply rail is zero volts, then the signals need to be
referenced to something between the rails. If you use 0 and 5 volts for
the supply voltages, then the signals should be referenced to
something like 2.5 volts.
• Output signal voltage usually can not go all the way from rail to rail.
• Output current is limited. Usually in the 5 to 25 mA range.
• Slew rates are the maximum dV/dt on the outputs. For a sine wave,
E sin wt, this is wE.
• Bandwidth is limited to the unity gain bandwidth divided by the stage
gain.

Typical Circuits

## • Many good references show circuits like those which

follow. Some show design equations and design
sequences to follow. Some will be exact and others
will be approximations which require tuning.
– High pass circuits, low pass circuits, and band pass circuits,
– Oscillators,
– Synchronous demodulator,
– Voltage to frequency and frequency to voltage converters,
– Phase locked loop, and
– Digital to analog converter.

Uses two integrators to solve sine wave equation e(t) = -e(t).
Both sine and cosine terms are generated.

## Square Wave Integrator

Successive integratons of a square wave approximates a sine wave with only a few percent of
harmonic content.

The amplitude falls off as the inverse square of frequency, so an amplitude control loop will be
required.

Demodulator and V/F Converters
Synchronous Demodulator
This cirduit can extract a signal of known frequency and phase from a high noise background.
It is used most frequently in AC parameter measurements where the signal source is available.

## Voltage to Frequency Converter

The integrator ramps at a rate proportional to the input voltage. When the output reaches the
reference (negative) level in the second Op Amp, the integrator is quickly reset. Dividing the
output with a flip-flop gives a square wave.

Frequency to Voltage Converter

## Each negative half cycle of the Op Amp output charges C1 as

shown. On each positive half cycle, this charge is transferred to C2.

Phase Locked Loop
The input signal crossovers are used to generate a rectangular wave. The JK flip-flop
generates a square wave. When this is exclusive ORed with the output of a voltage
controlled oscillator, the result is a voltage proportional to the phase difference
between the two signals. This can be used to control the oscillator.
