The BJT Differential Amplifier

Differential Amplifier

The object of the differential amplifier is to amplify the difference between Vin1 and Vin2 for output Vout.

RC2

In many applications VEE = -VCC. This can be obtained in the lab by setting the one negative and positive terminals of the dual power supply to earth ground and then set the power supply for the positive connection to the circuit to VCC and the negative connection to VEE.

Note that the input to this system is uniquely determined by the (Vin1, Vin2) pair or the (Vicm, Vidm) pair. There are several types of gain that can now be described for this amplifier.

Differential Amplifier Gain

The single ended output can be computed from the previously defined gains using superposition given by:

An important performance measure for differential amplifiers is the common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) given by:

Crude Op Amp
• A simple Op Amp can be create from the differential amp. Most Op Amps have additional stages to buffer the output (See http://www.williamson-labs.com/480_opam.htm ).
