In this lab, students will explore, through hands-on experience, the properties of open-loop op amps and closed-loop amplifier configurations. Students will measure and compare the input and output states of inverting, non-inverting, unity gain, and instrumentation amplifiers. Student will calculate expected gain values for different resistance configurations, and will measure the effect of an output load on unity gain and instrumentation amplifiers.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Simulate open-loop gain using an operational amplifier
Calculate expected gains for amplifier topologies
Simulate and measure amplified signals
Experiment with resistances to modify amplifier gains
Measure the current draw from unity gain and instrumentation amplifiers
Basic proficiency using Multisim Live and LabVIEW
Basic proficiency using ELVIS III Instruments
Basic knowledge of components and their behaviors
NI ELVIS III
