Hiding Distortion V+ • Consider the “ push-pull” transistor push-pull” arrangement to the right – an npn transistor (top) and a pnp (bot) – wimpy input can drive big load (speaker?) – base-emitter voltage differs by 0.6V in each transistor (emitter has arrow) – input has to be higher than ~0.6 V for the npn to become active – input has to be lower than 0.6 V for the pnp to be active out V+ Vin + out in V input and output now the same V • There is a no-man’s land in between no-man’ where neither transistor conducts, so one would get “ crossover distortion” distortion” crossover distortion • By sticking the push-pull into an op-amp’s feedback loop, we op-amp’ guarantee that the output faithfully follows the input! – after all, the golden rule demands that + input = – output is zero while input signal is between 0.6 and 0.6 V input • Op-amp jerks up to 0.6 and down to 0.6 at the crossover 0 .6 – it’s almost magic: it figures out the vagaries/nonlinearities of the thing in the loop • Now get advantages of push-pull drive capability, without the mess Winter 2008 17 Winter 2008 18 UCSD: Physics 121; 2008 UCSD: Physics 121; 2008 Dogs in the Feedback Reading “there is no dog” Vin • Read 6.4.2, 6.4.3 • Pay special attention to Figure 6.59 + inverse dog dog • The op-amp is obligated to contrive the inverse dog so that the ultimate output may be as tidy as the input. • Lesson: you can hide nasty nonlinearities in the feedback loop and the op-amp will “do the right thing” thing” We owe thanks to Hayes & Horowitz, p. 173 of the student manual companion to the A rt of Electronics for this priceless metaphor.
