The objective of this lab is to create an amplifier with multiple inverting, and non inverting inputs. This will be accomplished by using a single 741 style op-amp. Then measurements will be bade on the simulated circuit and compared to expected, calculate values. Components Used

1) PC with CircuitMaker® installer Procedures

1) Design a multi-input amplifier / summer that follows the following equation: Vo = V1 + 2V2 - 3Va - Vb - 2Vc

2) Simulate the circuit using all 1V inputs.

3) Repeat step 2 using a 1Vp-p sine wave at 1KHz

4) Repeat step 2 using a 1Vp-p AM wave form with a carrier frequency of 10KHz and modulation of 1KHz.

5) Repeat step 2 using a 1Vp-p FM wave with the same characteristics as the AM wave. Lab Data / Results

1) Diagram 1: Summer / Amplifier Schematic 2) Table 1: Results from DC test

 DC Voltage Output: -107.2mV

1) Q: Derive Phil Vrbancic's theorem.

A: See Attachments Conclusions

This lab has demonstrated the basics of a summer / amplifier. My answer to the post lab question may not be completely correct because I mostly guessed as to the Rx relationship. However, the system makes sense when considering the principle of inverting, and non-inverting configurations. Attachments
