1 Special-Purpose Operational Amplifier Circuits

2 Instrumentation Amplifier An instrumentation amplifier (IA) is a differential voltagegain device that amplifies the difference between the voltages existing at its two input terminals. The main purpose is to amplify small signals that may be riding on large common-mode voltages. It is an integrated circuit that internally has three operational amplifiers and several resistors. The key characteristics are high input impedance, high common-mode rejection, low output offset, and low output impedance. Instrumentation amplifiers are commonly used in environments with high common mode noise such as in data acquisition systems where remote sensing of input variables is required

3 Instrumentation Amplifier Op-amps A1 and A2 are noninverting configurations that provide high input impedance and voltage gain. Op-amp A3 is used as a unity-gain differential amplifier with high-precision resistors that are all equal in value (R3 = R4 = R5 = R6) The gain-setting resistor, R G is connected externally.

4 Instrumentation Amplifier The overall closed-loop gain of the instrumentation amplifier is: AA cccc = 1 + 2RR RR GG Where R 1 = R 2 = R The gain of the instrumentation amplifier can be set by the value of the external resistor R G when R 1 and R 2 have a known fixed value. The external gain-setting resistor R G can be calculated for a desired voltage gain by RR GG = 2RR AA cccc 1

7 Instrumentation Amplifier Example Determine the value of the external gain-setting resistor R G for a certain IC instrumentation amplifier with R 1 = R 2 = 25 kω. The closed-loop voltage gain is to be 500. Solution RR GG = 2RR AA cccc 1 = 50 kkω Ω

8 Instrumentation Amplifier The instrumentation amplifier is normally used to measure small differential signal voltages that are superimposed on a common-mode voltage often much larger than the signal voltage. Applications include situations where a quantity is sensed by a remote device and the resulting small electrical signal is sent over a long line subject to electrical noise that produces common-mode voltages in the line.

9 AD622 Instrumentation Amplifier An external resistor must be used to achieve a voltage gain greater than unity. RG is connected between pins 1 and kkω RR GG = AA cccc 1

10 AD622 Instrumentation Amplifier What value of R G will set the gain to 35? R G 50.5 kω 50.5 kω = = A v = 1.5 kω

11 Instrumentation Amplifiers The bandwidth of any IA (or op-amp for that matter) is lower for higher gain. The graph shows the BW for various gains for the AD What is the BW for a gain of 35? 100 Voltage gain 10 Reading the graph, the BW is approximately 200 khz k 10k 100k 1M 10M Frequency (Hz)

12 Noise Effects in IA Applications Various types of transducers are used to sense temperature, strain, pressure, and other parameters in many types of applications. Instrument amplifiers are generally used to process the small voltages produces by a transducer and in noisy industrial environment. Noise in the form of common mode signals picked up from external sources can be minimized, but not totally eliminated, by using coaxial cable in which the different signal wires are surrounded by a metal mesh sheathing called a shield. In an electrically noisy environment any common-mode signal that are induced on the signal lines are rejected because both inputs to the amplifier have the same common-mode signal.

13 Noise Effects in IA Applications However, when a shielded cable used, there are stray capacitance distributed along its length between each signal line and the shield. The difference in these stray capacitance, particularly at higher frequencies result in a phase shift between the two commonmode signals, as illustrated.

14 SHIELD GUARD Noise Effects in IA Applications Guarding is a technique to reduce the effect of noise on the common-mode operation of an instrument amplifier by connecting the common-mode voltage to the shield of a coaxial cable. The common-mode signal is fed back to the shield by a voltage-follower stage The purpose is to eliminated voltage differences between the signal lines and the shield, virtually eliminating leakage current and cancelling the effects of the distributed capacitance so that the common-mode voltages are the same in both lines.

15 Noise Effects in IA Applications The voltage-follower is a low-impendence source that drives the common-mode signal onto the shield to eliminate the voltage difference between the signal lines and the shield. When the voltage between each signal line and the shield is zero, the leakage current are also zero and the capacitive reactance become infinity large. An infinitely large Xc implies a zero capacitance

16 Instrumentation Amplifiers The AD522 is a low-noise IA that has a Data guard output, which is connected to the shield as shown. The AD522 has a programmed gain from 1 to 1000 depending on R G. The frequency response rolls off at 20 db/decade. Gain (db) 60 G = G = G = 10 0 G = k 10k 100k 1M f (Hz) Frequency response of AD522

17 Isolation Amplifiers An isolation amplifier is designed to provide an electrical barrier between the input and output. It consists of two electrically isolated stages: Input stage and Output stage separated by an isolation barrier so that a signal must be processed in order to be coupled across the isolation barrier. It is used for the protection of human life or sensitive equipment in those applications where hazardous power-line leakage or highvoltage transients are possible. Some isolation amplifiers use optical coupling or transformer coupling to provide isolation between the stages. Modern isolation amplifiers use capacitive coupling for isolation. In each stages, supply voltages and grounds are separated so that there are no common electrical paths between them.

18 Isolation Amplifiers A simplified block diagram for a typical capacitor coupled isolation amplifier Notice that there are two different ground symbols are used to reinforce the concept of stage separation.

19 Isolation Amplifiers The input stage consists of an amplifier, an oscillator and a modulator. The modulator uses a high-frequency square-wave oscillator to modify the original signal. A small-value capacitor in the isolation barrier is used to couple the lower frequency modulated signal or dc voltage from the input to the output. The output stage consists of a demodulator that extracts the original input signal from the modulated signal so that the original signal from the input stage is back to its original form. When separate dc supply voltages and an input signal are applied, an amplified output signal is the result.

20 Isolation Amplifiers An isolation amplifier that uses pulse width modulation is shown

21 Isolation Amplifiers The ISO124 is a capacitively-coupled isolation amplifier that uses pulse width modulation to transmit data across the barrier. The ISO124 has fixed unity gain and is rated to 1500 V rms of isolation. The frequency response is specified to 50 khz, but high-frequency ripple due to the PW modulation may be observed on the output at higher frequencies. The supply voltages should be coupled with external capacitors to reduce noise Input signal (15) (16) 1 µ F Input Stage IS0124 (2) (1) Barrier Output Stage (9) (10) (8) (7) 1 µ F 1 µ F Output signal Output waveform 1 µ F +15 V 15 V +15 V 15 V

22 Transformer-Coupled Isolation Amplifier 3656KG is an example of an isolation amplifier that uses transformer coupling to isolate the two stages. The 3656KG can have gain for both the input and output stages. The 3656KG is suited for patient monitoring applications, such as an ECG amplifier. Gain of the input stage: AA vv1 = RR ff1 RR ii1 + 1 V in R s (7) R i2 R f 2 Gain of the output stage: AA vv2 = RR ff2 RR ii2 + 1 The total amplifier gain is AA vv(tttttt) = AA vv1 AA vv2 R i1 R f1 (10) (6) Input (3) (14) Output (12) (19) (20) (15) (16) V out +V DC

23 Fetal Heartbeat Monitoring A simplified diagram of an isolation amplifier in a cardiacmonitoring application is shown. In this situation, heart signals, which are very small, are combined with much larger commonmode signals caused by muscle noise, electrochemical noise, residual electrode voltage, and 60 Hz power-line pickup from the skin.

24 Example: Determine the total voltage gain of the 3656KG isolation amplifier in Figure

25 The Operational Transconductance Amplifier The operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) is a voltage-to-current amplifier in which the output current equals the gain times the input voltage. Like the conventional op-amp, the OTA has two differential input terminals, a high input impedance, and a high CMRR. The OTA has a bias-current input terminal, a high output impedance, and no fixed open-loop voltage gain. The voltage-to-current gain of an OTA is the transconductance, gg mm = II oooooo VV iiii

26 The Operational Transconductance Amplifier In an OTA, the transconductance is dependent on a constant (K) times the bias current (I BIAS ). The value of the constant K is dependent on the internal circuit design: g m = K I BIAS A typical relationship of the transconductance and the bias current is illustrated. The transconductance increases linearly with the bias current. The proportionality constant, K, is the slope of the line. In this case, K is approximately 16 μs/μa The output current is controlled by the input voltage and the bias current: I out = g m V in = K I BIAS V in

27 Basic OTA Circuits An OTA used as an inverting amplifier with a fixed voltage gain is shown. The voltage gain is set by the transconductance and the load resistance as follows: The transconductance of the amplifier shown is determined by the amount of bias current, which is set by the dc supply voltages and the bias resistor R BIAS.

28 Basic OTA Circuits The voltage gain can be controlled by the amount of bias current. This can be done manually by using a variable resistor in series with R BIAS.The voltage gain can also be controlled with an externally applied variable voltage.

29 A Specific OTA The LM13700 is a dual device package containing two OTAs and buffer circuits. The maximum dc supply voltages are ± 18 V. The bias current is determined by the following formula: The positive bias voltage, +V BIAS, may be obtained from the positive supply voltage, +V

30 The Operational Transconductance Amplifier Example: The OTA in Figure is connected as an inverting fixed-gain amplifier where +V BIAS = +V. Determine the approximate voltage gain for K = 16 μs/μa.

31 OTA Application: Amplitude Modulator An OTA connected as an amplitude modulator is shown. The voltage gain is varied by applying a modulation voltage to the bias input. When a constant-amplitude input signal is applied, the amplitude of the output signal will vary according to the modulation voltage on the bias input. The gain is dependent on bias current, and bias current is related to the modulation voltage by the following relationship:

32 OTA Application: Amplitude Modulator

33 OTA Application: Amplitude Modulator

34 OTA Application: Amplitude Modulator

35 OTA Application: Amplitude Modulator

36 OTA Application: Schmitt Trigger An OTA connected as a Schmitt trigger is shown. Basically, a Schmitt trigger is a comparator with hysteresis where the input voltage is large enough to drive the device into its saturated states. When the input voltage exceeds a certain threshold value or trigger point, the device switches to one of its saturated output states. When the input falls below another threshold value, the device switches to its other saturated output state.

37 OTA Application: Schmitt Trigger In the case of the OTA Schmitt trigger, the threshold levels are set by the current through resistor R 1.The maximum output current in an OTA equals the bias current. Therefore, in the saturated output states, I out = I BIAS. The maximum positive output voltage is I out R 1 and this voltage is the positive threshold value or upper trigger point. When the input voltage exceeds this value, the output switches to its maximum negative voltage, which is - I out R 1. Since I out = I BIAS, the trigger points can be controlled by the bias current.

38 OTA Application: Schmitt Trigger

39 The Logarithmic Amplifier Log and antilog amplifiers are used in applications that require compression of analog input data, linearization of transducers that have exponential outputs, and analog multiplication and division. They are often used in high-frequency communication systems, including fiber optics, for processing wide dynamic range signals. The semiconductor pn junction in the form of either a diode or the base-emitter junction of a BJT provides a logarithmic characteristic. The diode characteristic curve is shown, where V F is the forward diode voltage and I F is the forward diode current.

40 The Logarithmic Amplifier The current voltage relation is: II FF = II RR ee qqvv FF/kkkk Solving for V F we get: VV FF = kkkk qq ln II FF II RR The output is limited to a maximum value of approximately 0.7 V because the diode s logarithmic characteristic is restricted to voltages below 0.7 V.

41 The Logarithmic Amplifier When a diode is placed in the feedback loop of an op-amp circuit, the output voltage is proportional to the log of the input voltage. From the circuit we have: VV oooooo = VV FF V in I in R 1 0 V I F + + V F Op-amp V out II FF = II iiii = VV iiii RR 1 Substituting into the formula for V F we get: VV oooooo = kkkk qq ln VV iiii II RR RR 1 = (0.025VV) ln VV iiii II RR RR 1 The gain decreases with increasing input voltage; therefore the amplifier is said to compress signals.

42 The Logarithmic Amplifier For the circuit shown, the equation for V out is V out Vin V ln I R ( ) R 1 (I R is a constant for a given diode.) What is V out? (Assume I R = 50 na.) Vout 11 V V ln 50 na 1.0 k ( ) ( )( Ω) V in V in +11 V RI in kω R 1 0 V I F + V F Op-amp + V out out = 307 mv

43 The Logarithmic Amplifier When a BJT is used in the feedback path, the output is referred to the ground of the base connection rather than the virtual ground. This eliminates offset and bias current errors. For the BJT, I EBO (emitter-to-base leakage current) replaces I R in the equation for V out : V out = Vin V ln I R ( ) EBO 1 Log amplifiers are available in IC form with even better performance than the basic log amps shown here. For example, the MAX4206 operates over 5 decades and can measure current from 10 na to 1 ma. V in I in R 1 I C + 0 V Op-amp + V BE V out

44 The Antilog Amplifier An antilog amplifier is formed by connecting a transistor (or diode) as the input element as shown. We have: VV oooooo = RR ff II CC, II CC = II EEEE0 ee qqvv BBBB/kkkk VV oooooo = RR ff II EEEE0 ee qqvv BBBB/kkkk The equation for V out for the basic BJT antilog amp is: V out = RI f V in EBO antilog 25 mv IC antilog amps are also available. For example, the Datel LA-8048 is a log amp and the Datel LA-8049 is its counterpart antilog amp. These ICs are specified for a six decade range. V in + V BE I C 0 V + R f Op-amp + V out

45 The Antilog Amplifier EXAMPLE: For the antilog amplifier in Figure, find the output voltage. Assume I EBO = 40 na. V out antilog Vin = RI f EBO = -3 V. 25 mv

46 Constant-Current Source A constant-current source delivers a load current that remains constant when the load resistance changes. From the figure we get: II LL = II ii = VV IIII RR ii If R L changes, I L remains constant as long as V IN and R i are held constant I L = I i V IN + R i I i 0 V 0 A + R L Constant-current source

47 Current-to-Voltage Converter A current-to-voltage converter converts a variable input current to a proportional output voltage. A basic circuit that accomplishes this is shown. From the figure we get: VV oooooo = II ii RR ff R f I i I i 0 V + V out Current-to-voltage converter

48 Voltage-to-Current Converter A basic voltage-to-current converter is shown. This circuit is used in applications where it is necessary to have an output (load) current that is controlled by an input voltage. From the figure we get: II LL = VV iiii RR 1 V in + I = 0 I L R L I 1 R 1 Voltage-to-current converter

49 Peak Detector This circuit is used to detect the peak of the input voltage and store that peak voltage on a capacitor. When a positive voltage is applied to the noninverting input of the op-amp, the high-level output voltage of the op-amp forwardbiases the diode and charges the capacitor. The capacitor continues to charge until its voltage reaches a value equal to the input voltage and thus both op-amp inputs are at the same voltage. At this point, the op-amp comparator switches, and its output goes to the low level. The diode is now reverse biased, and the capacitor stops charging. If a greater input peak occurs, the capacitor charges to the new peak R i V in + R 1 Peak detector C V out
