Operational Amplifiers: Theory & Design
- Monday, 4 -- Friday, 8 November 2019
The course is addressing systematic analysis and design as well as hands-on simulation of operational amplifiers. It is shown that the topology of all operational amplifiers can be divided in nine main overall configurations. High-frequency compensation techniques are analyzed for all nine configurations. Special focus is on low-power low-voltage architectures with rail-to-rail output and/or input ranges. The design of fully differential operational amplifiers is developed. New emphasis is on low-offset chopper amplifiers, and capacitive coupled chopper amplifiers for high input-voltage current-sense applications. During hands-on simulation hours several input, output and overall designs will be covered.Additional information ...
