School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering ELEC101 Electrical Engineering 1 – Laboratory Report 2 Topic 2 Operational Amplifiers (Experiments 10 & 11) “You should look for relevant observations you have made during your laboratory experiments 10 and 11 and use them to discuss the behaviour of operational amplifiers and Op-Amp applications.“ Introduction The Operational Amplifier (Op-Amp) is a widely used integrated circuit (IC) device. Op-Amps amplify the difference between the signals applied to its two input pins. A signal must be applied to both inputs of the IC or the circuit will function improperly, if at all, this may be another voltage or ground. The inputs are considered to be of two types; inverting and non-inverting commonly labeled with + and – signs respectively. Misleadingly these markings have nothing to do with the polarity of the input signals that the pins are able to receive. Rather they dictate the resulting output polarity in respect to the input polarity, that is, the non-inverting (+) input outputs the signal at the same polarity as the input, and the inverting input (-) outputs the signal at the opposite polarity. Op-Amps are able to receive both AC and DC signals with the output remaining in the form of the input. Two other pins are used to supply the powering voltage to the IC. In our case wee used ±15 V. The voltage through these supply rails restricts the maximum voltage that can be supplied by the output regardless of the surrounding circuitry used to dictate the gain of the amplifier.

    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.
