Discuss some of the issues with this Op-Amp oscillations and explain the voltage swing and cause of potential failure of this circuit

The purpose of this lab is to learn to use MultiSIM to construct and simulate oscillator circuits. Two oscillator circuits will be constructed and the effect of feedback resistance will be investigated in order to produce oscillation. Students will be asked to extend the concepts presented in order to modify the given circuit to allow for a variable output frequency. 1. Watch the video Week 6 – Oscillator Circuit 2. Read the section 11.3 and construct the two oscillator circuits in Figure 11.3 from the textbook and simulate the circuits. 3. Use the Agilent oscilloscope to observe the oscillations and measure the frequency. 4. Analyze the oscillations of Op-Amp and Comparator circuit and compare the Op-Amp circuit with that of the Comparator circuit. 5. Capture the screenshots showing….

to use Multisim to analyze noise in op-amp circuits

Op-Amp Noise Theory

The purpose of this lab is to learn to use Multisim to analyze noise in op-amp circuits. Students will capture screenshots of the noise spectral density curves which will provide a visual relationship of the output noise voltage versus frequency.

Read the document on configuring a noise analysis in Multisim. Week 7 – Configuring Noise Analysis in Multisim.pdf Following the instructions in pdf, construct the inverting Op-Amp circuit shown in figure 1. Run the simulation to measure the gain of the Op-Amp and record the values of R1 and R2 and the measured gain in the table below. (Use 5% tolerance for R1 and R2) Voltage gain (Av) R1 (5% tolerance) R2 (5% tolerance) Measured Voltage gain (Av) 1 1KΩ 5 1KΩ 10 1KΩ 12….
