Project – using as many diodes, resistors, and capacitors as needed, along with CD4007 chips from the same production lot (see date code on the top of chip) to ensure current mirrors are possible, design and build a bandgap voltage reference (BGR). Your report, in html, should detail your design considerations, simulation results (using the models you generated in lab 8), and measured results showing the BGR's performance (how the reference voltage changes with VDD). It would be good, but it's not required, if you could also characterize the BGR performance with temperature. Your report is due at the end of lab on Friday, May 8. Access to your accounts will be removed at this time.

  • Unlike the lectures, laptops can be used during the lab. Please bring your laptop with you to lab!
  • If a quiz is open book then only the course textbook can be used (no ebooks, Kindle, Nook, etc., older/international editions, or photocopies).
  • No late work accepted. Regularly being tardy for labs, leaving in the middle of labs, or leaving early is unacceptable without consent of the instructor.
  • Cheating or plagiarism will result in an automatic F grade in the lab
  • Questions for the instructor (only) should be asked in person (not via email).
