Operational Amplifiers
Classroom lecture on operational amplifiers and amplifier models. Ideal operational amplifier, TNetwork, and linear smallsignal equivalent circuit
models. Design and analysis of summing, noninverting, difference, log and antilog amplifiers. Opamp applications, transfer characteristics, current
mirror and basic differential pair, nonideal effects, feedback and stability are discussed. Ideal opamps and operational amplifier model, currenttovoltage
and voltagetocurrent converters, integrator and differentiator amplifiers, circuit design, BJT Bipolar transistor current mirror, BJT differential pair,
small signal equivalent circuit analysis, differential and common mode gains, input impedances, amplifier feedback and stability, ideal closedloop signal
gain, gain sensitivity, bandwidth extension, Bode Plots, Pole Amplifier, phase gain and phase margins, frequency compensation theory, closedloop frequency
response, Miller Effects, Miller Compensation, nonideal amplifier effects, finite openloop gain, inverting and noninverting closedloop gain, nonzero
output resistance, offset voltages, bias currents, slew rate, amplifier temperature effects and CMRR. Throughout the lecture course students will be expected
to apply the material to practical experiments in the laboratory section Operational Amplifiers Lab.
