Three op amp instrumentation amplifier circuit



This design uses three op amps to build a discrete instrumentation amplifier. The circuit converts a differential signal to a single-ended output signal. Linear operation of an instrumentation amplifier depends upon linear operation of its building block: op amps. An op amp operates linearly when the input and output signals are within the device’s input common-mode and output swing ranges, respectively. The supply voltages used to power the op amps define these ranges.
  • Input: ± 0.5 V
  • Common mode voltage: ± 7 V
  • Output: ± 5 V
  • Supply:
    • Vcc = 15 V
    • Vee = -15 V
    • Vref = 0V
