1. How many sets of electrical specifications are there for 741C op-amp?

A. Five
B. Eight
C. Two
D. Ten

There are two sets of electrical specifications. One set of specifications applies at room temperature of 25oC, whereas the other set applies to the commercial temperature range from 0 to 70oC.

2. Calculate the input offset current from the circuit shown below:

A. +1.55mA
B. ±1.55mA
C. -1.55mA
D. None of the mentioned

The algebraic difference between the current into the inverting and non-inverting terminal is referred to as input offset current.

Iio = |IB1-IB2| =|3.2 – 4.75|=|-1.55|

=> Iio = +1.55mA.

A. Is = 1.5mA
B. Is = 3.2mA
C. Is = 4.0mA
D. Is = 2.8mA

Supply current is the current drawn by the op-amp from the power supply; this parameter is not given on most op-amp data. For 741c op-amp, the supply current Is=2.8mA response.

4. Which is a time-varying response?

B. Transient response

B. Noise voltage = V3/Hz and Noise current = A2/Hz
C. Noise voltage = V2/Hz and Noise current = A3/Hz
D. Noise voltage = V3/Hz and Noise current = A3/Hz

As the electrical noise is random in nature, it is expressed as a root mean square value. The equivalent input noise voltage is expressed as square voltage (V2/Hz) and the equivalent input noise current as square noise current (A2/Hz).

6. The physical closeness of dual and quad package op-amp results in

A. Op-amp coupling
B. Amplifier to amplifier coupling
C. Channel coupling
D. Signal to noise coupling

When a signal is applied to the input of only one op-amp, some signal will appear at the output of another op-amp due to the physical closeness of op-amps in dual and quad packages, this causes the amplifier to amplifier coupling.

7. A parameter that is applicable only to dual and quad op-amp is

A. Channel separation
B. Gain bandwidth product
C. Long term input offset voltage stability
D. Equivalent input noise voltage and current

Channel separation is specified in the dual and quad op-amp datasheet because it is a measure of the amount of electrical coupling between op-amps that are integrated on the same chip.

8. Select the parameter that is not included in the evaluation for ac applications.

A. Gain-bandwidth product
B. Channel separation

D. All of the mentioned

Slew rate is one of the important factors in selecting the op-amp for ac application, particularly at relatively high frequencies application in oscillators, comparators, and filters.

9. Which information is not included in a typical datasheet of an op-amp?

A. Brief description of the basic type of the device
B. Pin configuration, package type & order information
C. Internal schematic diagram
D. Characteristics analysis of amplifier applications

The characteristics of the amplifier are included in the datasheet whereas, the application’s characteristics will not be included. Rather a collection of amplifier applications with circuit diagrams can be found in the datasheets.

10. How are input offset voltage of op-amp expressed

A. Microvolts per week
B. Nanovolts per week
C. Megavolts per week
D. Millivolts per week

For long-term stability, the amount of change in input offset voltage with time is crucial and denoted as microvolts per week.

11. Find the expression for output offset voltage?

A. VooT = [RF/R1×Vio] + (RF×Io)
B. VooT = [1+(RF/R1)]×(Vio) + (RF×Io)
C. VooT = [1+(RF/R1)]/(Vio) + (RF×Io)
D. VooT = [RF/R1]×(Vio) + (RF/Io)

The output offset voltage is expressed as a function of input offset current and input offset voltage when is given as

VooT = [1+(RF/R1)]×(Vio) + (RF×Io).

12. Why it is necessary to calibrate all op-amps in the system periodically?

A. To maintain the current drift of a system
B. To maintain output offset voltage in op-amp
C. To maintain accuracy and linearity of a system
D. None of the mentioned

In practice, the output offset voltage in all op-amp circuits will change with time. Therefore, to maintain the desired accuracy and linearity of a system, it is necessary to calibrate all op-amps in that system periodically.

13. Determine the maximum possible change in output offset voltage after 3 months if the LH0041C op-amp is initially nulled and at room temperature, the voltage across the terminal, +Vcc & -Vee remains constant.

A. △VooT = 456.78mv
B. △VooT = 3.452mv
C. △VooT = 21.1mv
D. None of the mentioned

For LH0041C,

△Vio/△t = 5µV/week and △Iio /△t = 2nA/week.

Due to the time drift △t=12 weeks (3months). The maximum possible change in output offset voltage,

△VooT = [[1+(RF/R1)]×(△Vio/△t)×△t]+[RF×(△Iio/△t) ×△t]= [(1+(250kΩ/1kΩ))×5µV×12] + [250kΩ×2µA×12]

= 15.1mv+6mv

=> △VooT = 21.1mv.

A. All of the mentioned Choosing the small value of external components
B. Enhancing the input signal amplifier
C. Reducing the gain of the op-amp
D. All of the mentioned

The amount of drift in the input signal depends on the relative values of external components. So, if relatively small values are selected for an external component then drift can be minimized.

15. An amplifier has a supply voltage of ±15v. Compute its peak to peak output swing

A. 36v
B. 30v
C. 26v
D. 49v

The peak to peak output swing depends on the value of the supply voltage ( which is +15v-(-15v) =30v ) and is always less than the value to maintain the safe operation of the op-amp.

If the power consumption as a function of the supply voltage curve is drawn, it can be seen that the amount of dc power required to operate the op-amp under no-load conditions increases with an increase in supply voltage.
