For the two amplifiers shown above, the opamp has open-loop DC gain A0, input resistance Rin, and output resistance Rout. For the Ltspice parts, use the UniversalOpamp2 (SpiceModel level.1), with R1 = 1k and R2 = 10k. The default open-loop output resistance for the opamp model is 0.1. You can use the ‘DC Transfer’ analysis.

  1. For the inverting and non-inverting amplifiers shown in Fig 1a and 1b, determine expressions for each of the following assuming A0 →  (infinite open-loop gain). Provide comments on how each closed-loop parameter compares to its open-loop counterpart.
    1. Closed-loop gain (Vout/Vin).
    2. Closed-loop output resistance.
    3. Closed-loop input resistance.
  2.  Repeat Part a assuming A0 is finite. Try to develop some intuition regarding how each parameter depends on A0 and the feedback factor . Check your answer by setting A0 →  and comparing to your answer in Part a.
  3.  Assuming the opamp has a voltage offset vOS, what is the resulting output offset for each structure? Assume A0 → . Check your answer in Ltspice.
  4.  Assuming the opamp has input bias current IB, what is the resulting output offset for each structure? Assume A0 → .


Problem 2: Opamp circuit transient response

             Figure 2a. Current-input integrator                                      Figure 2b. Input current pulse


For the following, assume ideal opamp behavior.

  1. ( Determine an expression for the transfer function vout/iin.
  2.  Determine an expression for the transient response of the circuit. What is the value of vout (in terms of R, C, imax, and ton) at time t = ton?

Bonus ): Design the circuit (i.e. determine R and C) to function as an integrator, such that             vout(ton) = imax/C with less than 0.1% error. Use imax = 10µA and ensure vout doesn’t exceed a bipolar supply voltage of 2.5V. Verify your design in Ltspice.


Problem 3. Difference amplifier

Figure 3. Difference amplifier

For the following, the opamp has a DC gain (A0) of 100 dB and a unity-gain bandwidth (fT) of 10MHz but is otherwise ideal (Rin =  and Rout = 0). R1 = R2 = R3 = R4 = 10k.

  1.  Sketch the Bode magnitude and use the graph to approximate the 3dB bandwidth. Sketch the Bode phase plot.
  2. Calculate the DC gain and 3dB bandwidth of the closed-loop transfer function vout/(vipvim). Sketch the Bode magnitude and phase of the closed-loop transfer function.
  3.  What is the resistance “looking into” each input (vim and vip)?
  4.  Check your answers to Parts b and c in Ltspice using the Analog Devices opamp model for the AD8691.
