**James Kelly**Nathan Knight Gustavo Lee Operational Amplifiers**Presentation Outline**• Introduction • Characteristics of Ideal and Real Op-Amps • Basic Circuits of Op-Amps • Applications • Exercise**What is an Op-Amp?**• An Operational Amplifier (known as an “Op-Amp”) is an integrated circuit that sets an output voltage based on the input voltages provided. • In a circuit, it is used to perform an operation and an amplification where the operation may be add, subtract, filter, integrate, differentiate, etc. • Op-Amps are composed of transistors, resistors, capacitors, and diodes.**Brief History**• 1941: Karl Swartzel of Bell Labs developed the first Op-Amp. • Used 3 vacuum tubes, only one input (inverting), and operated on +350 V to achieve 90 dB gain. • 1947: Loebe Julie developed the Op-Amp as it is known today, with two inputs – inverting and non-inverting. • The differential input made a whole range of new functionality possible. • 1953: First commercially available Op-Amp. • George A. Philbrick Researches (GAP-R). GAP-R pioneered the first reasonable-cost, mass-produced operational amplifier • 1961: Advent of solid-state, discrete Op-Amps. • Made possible by the invention of the silicon transistor, which led to the concept of Integrated Circuits (IC) • Reduced power input to ±15V to ±10V • 1962: Op-Amp in a potted module. • Packaging in small black boxes allowed for integration with a circuit**Brief History**• 1963: First monolithic IC Op-Amp, the μA702, designed by Bob Widlar at Fairchild Semiconductor. • Monolithic ICs consist of a single chip • 1968: Release of the μA741 • The μA741 became the canonical Op-Amp, from which many modern op-amps base their pinout from, and is still in production today.**Presentation Outline**• Introduction • Characteristics of Ideal and Real Op-Amps • Basic Circuits of Op-Amps • Applications • Exercise**Basic Op-Amp (Open-Loop)**• : positive power supply • : negative power supply • : non-inverting input terminal • : inverting input terminal • : output terminal • ,,are all referenced to ground**Ideal Op-Amp**• Temperature-independent. • The maximum output voltage value is the supply voltage (saturation): • What this means: • Current flow into the op-amp from either input terminal is zero. • Differential voltage between the two input terminals is zero.**Real Op-Amp**• Operating temperature range: • Commercial: • Industrial: • Military:**Saturation**Vout • Saturation results when the output voltage is equal to the power supply’s voltage • In typical op-amps, the saturation level is about 80% of the supply voltage. • Positive Saturation Cutoff: • Linear Mode: • Negative Saturation Cutoff: Vsat+ Slope = G Vin Vsat- Saturation Cutoff Points**Presentation Outline**• Introduction • Characteristics of Ideal and Real Op-Amps • Basic Circuits of Op-Amps • Applications • Exercise**Open Loop vs. Closed Loop**• A closed-loop op-amp has feedback from the output back to one of the inputs, whereas an open-loop op-amp does not. Open-Loop Closed-Loop**Negative vs. Positive Feedback**• Negative feedback connects the output to the inverting input (-), whereas positive feedback connects the output to the non-inverting input (+). Negative Feedback Positive Feedback**Negative vs. Positive: Output**• Negative feedback op-amps can produce any voltage in the supply power range. • Positive feedback op-amps can only produce the maximum and minimum voltages of the range.
