Op-Amp Circuit Diagram
In this lab, students will be looking at the open-loop behavior and theory of an operational amplifier (op-amp). First, students will learn a about an op-amp in a short informative video. Then they will be able to learn from hands-on application of op-amps through circuit simulation and circuit building on a bread board. Finally, students will examine why op-amps are important and how they can use them in real-life situations.


This is lab 9 of 14 in the course, Analog Electronics.


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Discuss the operation and application of op-amps.
  2. Discuss the limiting factors imposed by the supply voltage to an op-amp.
  3. Predict the output of an op-amp in an open-loop configuration given the input parameters.
