Instrumentation Amplifiers

Instrument Amplifier Circuit Diagram
In this lab, students will be looking at a configuration of op-amp amplifiers called instrumentation amplifiers. First, students will look at a detailed definition and a web-based circuit simulation of an instrumentation amplifier circuit . Then, students will explore what instrumentation amplifier circuits do and why they are important in hands-on circuit building. Finally, students will examine how to use instrumentation amplifier circuits.


This is lab 11 of 14 in the course, Analog Electronics.


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Discuss the characteristics, operation, and application of instrumentation amplifiers. 
  2. Design an instrumentation amplifier given a specific gain requirement.
  3. Implement a designed instrumentation amplifier and confirm that it works with the specified gain amount, using both individual components and an IC.​
