Introduction
The integrated circuit operational amplifier evolved soon after development of the
first bipolar integrated circuit.
The A-709 was introduced by Fairchild Semiconductor in 1965 and was one of the
first widely used general-purpose op-amps. The now classic A-741, also by
Fairchild, was introduced in the late 1960s.
In the ideal op-amp:
The open-loop gain
approaches infinity
Circuit symbol of Op-Amp

Aod

The common-mode output

signal is zero.
Input resistance Ri is infinite.
Output resistance Ro is zero.

Inverting Amplifier
One of the most widely used op-amp circuits is the inverting amplifier

The closed-loop gain:

Example 1: Using the inverting Op-amp amplifier

to design the circuit such that the voltage gain is
Av = 5. Assume the op-amp is driven by an ideal
sinusoidal source, = 0.1sin (), that can
supply a maximum current of 5.

the closed-loop gain for: Aod = 102, 103, 104, 105, and 106. Calculate the percent deviation
from the ideal gain.

Current-to-Voltage Converter
In some situations, the output of a device or
circuit is a current. An example is the output of a
photodiode or photo-detector. We may need to
convert this output current to an output voltage.

Difference Amplifier
An ideal difference amplifier amplifies only the
difference between two signals. It rejects any
common signals to the two input terminals.
For example, a microphone system amplifies an
audio signal applied to one terminal of a
difference amplifier, and rejects any 60 Hz noise
signal or hum existing on both terminals

Instrumentation Amplifier
Obtain a high input impedance and a high
gain in a difference amplifier with
reasonable resistor values: DIFFICULT.

SOLUTION: insert a voltage follower

Problem: GAIN is not easily to change.

change the gain by changing only a single
resistance value.
