Objectives Study non-ideal op amp behavior. Demonstrate circuit analysis techniques for non-ideal op amps. At the end of this class you should be able to: * Analyze op amp circuits assuming finite gain, non-ideal input and output resistance * Understand the effects of common mode gain and input resistance * Ideal op amp has following assumptions: Infinite common-mode rejection, power supply rejection, open-loop gain, bandwidth, output voltage range, output current capability Zero output resistance, input-bias currents and offset current, input-offset voltage. *Various error terms arise in practical operational amplifiers due to non-ideal behavior. The non-idealities can be classified as follows: I. Small signal errors: 1. Finite gain, input and output resistances 2. Common mode gain and input resistance II. Frequency Limitation 1. Finite bandwidth III. Large signal limitations: 1. Slew rate 2. Output voltage and currents limits IV. DC imperfections 1. Offset voltage 2. Biasing and offset currents 3. PSSR * In this class we will concentrate on the small signal non-idealities. Whereas, other limitations will be discussed in the following lectures. To simplify non-ideal analysis, each imperfection can be considered separately. * Finite Open-loop Gain Practical op amps have finite gains with typical values in the range of 80 to 100dB. Finite gain results in error between the ideal and actual gain.
