Properties of Op-Amps The ideal op-amp. Open-loop gain, input resistance, and output resistance. Ideal Op-Amp Circuits Inverting and non-inverting amplifiers. Differential input and output amplifiers. Integrators and differentiators. Single-pole low-pass and high-pass amplifiers. The op-amp as a comparator. Op-Amp Active Filters Filter transfer functions. Butterworth, Chebyshev, Thompson, and elliptic approximations. Sallen-Key, infinite-gain-multi-feedback, state variable, generalized impedance converter, and switched capacitor topologies. Nonlinear Applications Precision rectifier, peak detector, wave-shaping, and log-converter circuits. Characteristics of Non-Ideal Op-Amps Open-loop transfer function, bandwidth, gian-bandwith product, slew rate, power bandwidth, clipping, rise time, offset voltages and currents, stability, frequency compensation, noise. Op-Amp Signal Generator Circuits Sine-wave oscillators, triangle-wave generators, square-wave generators, and pulse generators. Other Applications of op-Amps Applications to digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, electronic switching circuits, voltage-to-current converters, and voltage-to-frequency and frequency-to-voltage converters.
