Application Circuits

The OPA593EVM can be connected in a variety of standard op-amp circuits: inverting amplifier, noninverting amplifier, difference amplifier, and as an improved Howland current pump (V-I converter), as well as others. See the OPA593 data sheet for some typical application circuits.

As received, the OPA593EVM has eight (8), 100-mil jumper shunts across jumper blocks on the PCB. The locations have been selected to establish the OPA593 as either an inverting amplifier having a gain of –1 V/V when VIN– (J5) is driven, or as a noninverting amplifier having a gain of +1 V/V when VIN+ (J9) is driven.

Section 4.1.1, Section 4.1.1, provides a simplified OPA593EVM schematic. The schematic shows the jumper shunts (SH-J#) installed at particular jumper blocks. These jumper shunts as placed set up the two described gain settings.

Some of the jumper shunts are in passive jumper block locations where they do not contribute to the functionality of the circuit. This placement was done so that all eight shunts could be provided with the EVM and would be available for use in more involved circuits.
