  1. Attempt all questions.
  2. Make suitable assumptions wherever necessary.
  3. Figures to the right indicate full marks.
  4. Take VCc = +10 V and VEE = -10 V as supply voltage for op-amp.

Q.3 (a) Draw and explain working op-amp based full-wave rectifier circuit. How is it better in  performance compared to full-wave rectifier circuit without op-amp?

(b) In a differential instrumentation amplifier with transducer bridge to measure change in  temperature, show that the output voltage of entire system (circuit) is proportional to change in resistance of temperature sensor.

Design the Schmitt trigger circuit for upper and lower threshold voltage equal to 25 mV and -25 mV. Op-amp maximum output voltages are ± 14 V. Take ± 15V as op- amp supply voltage. 

Q.5 (a) Discuss importance of magnitude and frequency scaling in filter design. Design Biquad lowpass filter

(b) Derive transfer function of Sallen-key lowpass filter.


Q.5 (a) Design a Delyiannis-Friend circuit with f0 = 12.5 kHz, Q0 = 10, and midband gain H = 26 dB.

(b) Draw simple internal diagram of operational transconductance amplifier and show that its output current is proportional to difference of input voltages.
