## OPAMP Power dissipation - It's possible?

Hi, I would need some help in a power dissipation issue. I have a power opamp that works in a non-inverting topology. Here some data: - Single Supply = 12V - Output voltage = 6+3*sin(wt) V - Output current = 100*sin(wt + alfa) mA where: w = angular frequency t = time alfa = angle between current and (...)

## how to simulate an operational amplifier power dissipation?

Put a zero-volt voltage source in series with all the op-amp stages and then measure the currents through them. This will give you power per stage - by V*I (of course) and is more useful, than just finding the total power for the opamp.

## What are the crucial points on opamp design ?

It all depend on the specification that you are looking for. Most of the time the process we use to design a opamp will be the crucial point as it will limit the design parameters and the rest as others mentioned in the post.

## What type of opamp is more suitable for achieving high PSSR?

Due the application of dc feedback, I think a typical differential stage opamp would serve the purpose. If the frequency of application is high, a cascode stage differential opamp would serve the purpose Rgds

## Amplifier design....Help!

the gain is moderate so you can do this design with 2 stage opamp. Use Nulling resistor to do compensation using transistor in triode mode. If you want step by step example, go to and look at P Ellen's lecture notes. This project is very do-able and won't take you long to design. Layout is another game, it comes with practice. G

I think for real low noise performance. say 2uV (20-30kHz), maybe opamp shouldn'd be used.

## fully differential amp without cmfb

If CMFB is not present, the common mode gain will increase and deviates the basic idea of DIfferential opamp. So inorder to control the common mode gain,we introduce as Voltage controlled voltage source circuit. This will maintain a constant DC level at the output. This value is actually half way between VDD and VSS. Common mode feedback will have

## Why the power consumption of this circuit is high?

In this design, there is another opamp circuit which is the same design as this one and those two circuits are working together. A LM7805 convert the 12V DC to 5V for powering those opamps circuits. I didn?t connect any load with this circuit yet. I only supplied 12VDC to LM7805 and the power is 12V and 0.38A, so I (...)

## Designing an Output Stage

Dear All, I need to design an output stage (third stage) for a two-stage compensated opamp. I have gone through some related papers and text. After reading them, I have built-up some interpretations: 1. The main design specifications whilst designing the o/p stage are a) output swing, b) power dissipation (or efficiency), c) linearity (or

## high speed op amp design

If you intend to calculate the W/L values that will make your circuit work as you want, forget it. That's just impossible because you lack the exact equations and the math would be extremely difficult. If your designing an high speed opamp your transistor sizes should be as small as possible to keep a good bandwidth. Besides that, PMOS should al

## current sensing circuit

Hi, I want to design a circuit which can detect current pulses and give static voltage in accordance with current passed. For example if a current pulse of 10ms duration passes through my circuit than I want my circuit to give voltage and hold it there. I have tried using sense circuits for dc power supply in which a sense resistor senses curre

## current capability of op-amp

Current delivered from op-amp output to load depends on voltage at the output, load resistance Rl, output resistance Ro and your series resistance Rs. Current through load can be determined from Ohm's law. In that case Io=Uo/(Rs+Ro+Rl). Considering that Ro is internal resistance of opamp which is integrated circuit, you cannot chamge it. So the onl

## How to find the values of the components

input voltage is 25 v,R sens is 0.1ohm (Rshunt) and the current i have measure is 3.5A. 1. Can you please help in finding the value for resistors. If 25V is also the supply voltage for the opamp, use Ra=Rb=Rc=Rd = 1..10kΩ , R1=R2=100kΩ , and R3=R4 depending on your required gain = R3/R1 = R4/R2 . Thei

## Variable current source design issue : ~1.5A

A couple more thoughts..... I would use a 1 Ohm resistor instead of 5 Ohms for the current sensing, to reduce the voltage loss and power dissipation. IIRC, a 741's inputs can't go all the way down to the negative supply rail, so it's probably a good idea to use a different opamp, or change the biasing.

## overvoltage protection circuit - help needed!!!

1. Connect resistor between sensor resistor (200 Om) and opamp input . 2. Input Op Amp must be pulled to Vcc and GND through Fast/Schottky diodes (in reverse bias). It restricts input voltage level on the range -0.7V and VCC+0.7V

## Help opamp getting too hot - Urgent!

The maximum supply current is 4.5mA per opamp. There are two opamps. The total supply is 30V. Then the dissipation with no load is 4.5mA x 30V x 2= 0.27W. The thermal resistance of the tiny surface-mount case is 190 degrees C per W so if the ambient is 30 degrees then the chip is at 81.3 degrees C which is warm but not too hot. A load makes (...)
