Joe Doyle Take Home Design Simulation (Prob. #4) My task in this design problem is to use the natural log op amp in combination with other op amps in order to produce the voltage output ln(Vi). The output voltage of the natural log op amp is Vo=- nVtln(Vi)+nVtln(R1+Is). The following assumptions will be used: nVt=47.6mV, Is=3.035nA, R1=1k-ohm, and available power supplies are +/-15VDC. A requirement in this design is to use a maximum of three uA741 op amps because PSpice will not run if the design exceeds 64 nodes, which I found out first hand. I tried several designs with three op amps but none of them worked for me. I resorted to using four op amps because it is the only way I found to produce the required output voltage. I will be unable to run the simulation for this assignment but I will do my best to prove that the output voltage will be ln(Vi). In general my design includes the natural log op amp, followed by the differentiator, followed by the integrator, and then an inverting op amp. Here is the math I used in my design process:

I attempted to run this circuit in PSpice but it was too large.

### What students are saying

• 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.
