Abstract—This lab illustrates the function of an inverting, differentiating, and integrating Op-Amp circuit.

I. INTRODUCTION HIS lab demonstrates the operation characteristics of an inverting, differentiating, and integrating Op-Amp circuit. The frequency effects of these Op-Amps are also analyzed. II. PROCEDURE A. Equations The equations used for the lab preparation were as follows:

Figure 4: Gain of -100 Figure 1: Inverting Op-Amp The inverting Op-Amp circuit in Figure 1 was designed and tested with three different gains. The first gain was -1, the second was -10, and the last was -100. The corner frequencies for each circuit were calculated and recorded in Table 1. The resistor values for each gain are also located in Table 1. A plot of the gain for the -1, -10, and -100 are located in Figures, 2, 3, and 4 respectively. Bode plots for the -1, -10, and -100

To get a non clipped wave form on the 100 gain circuit shown in Figure 10. the input voltage had to be decreased 0. The differentiating Op-Amp circuit is located in Figure 11. Theses were the same settings for Figure 10. Figure 10: Gain of -100 As expected. the input is shown in red and the output is shown in green. but the output was set to five volts per division. A differentiating Op-Amp was constructed that accepts a triangular wave and outputs a square wave.394MHz Freq.

This drop in voltage resolved the distortion issue. the input voltage was reduced to 1V peak to peak. For Figure 15. D. Integrating Op-Amp. the input is shown in green and the output is shown in red. To fix this problem. and the physical circuit output is located in Figure 16. It also showed how accurately a computer simulation tool can model the operation of real-world Op-Amp circuits. and the new output is shown in Figure 17.
