Experiment 10: Differential Amplifiers 1 Objective Differential amplifiers are designed to amplify the difference between two signals; thus, such amplifiers are capable of reducing noise that is common to both inputs. We can quantify the differential-mode versus common-mode gain in a quantity called the common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR). Differential amplifiers also lend themselves to use in feedback, though we will not explore that usage in this lab. A typical differential amplifier with a single-ended output is the op-amp. 2 Materials The items listed in table 1 will be needed. For this lab, assume all NPN transistors are identical 2N3904 BJTs and all PNP transistors are identical 2N3906 BJTs. Note: Be sure to answer the questions on the report as you proceed through this lab. The report questions are labeled according to the sections in the experiment. CAUTION: FOR THIS EXPERIMENT, THE TRANSISTORS CAN BECOME EXTREMELY HOT!!!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
