1.2 Exercise Set 1
1
Design the following amplifiers - (a) a unity gain amplifier, (b) a non-inverting amplifier with a gain of 2 (Figure 1.5(a)) and an inverting amplifier with the gain of 2.2 (Figure 1.5(b)). Design an instrumentation amplifier using three OP-Amps with a controllable differential-mode gain of 3. Refer to Figure 1.9(a) for the circuit diagram. Assume that the resistors have 1% tolerance and determine the Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR) of the setup and estimate its bandwidth. We invite the reader to view the recorded lecture [18]. Design an instrumentation amplifier using two OP-Amps with a controllable differential-mode gain of 5. Refer to Figure 1.9 for the circuit diagrams of the instrumentation amplifiers and determine the values of the resistors. Assume that the resistors have 1% tolerance and determine the CMRR of the setup and estimate its bandwidth.
