Project – design a transimpedance amplifier (TIA) using either the ZVN3306A or ZVP3306A (or both) MOSFETs and as many resistors and capacitors as you need with a gain of 30k. You should try to get as fast a design as possible driving a 10k load with as large of output swing as possible. AC coupling input and output is okay as long as your design can pass a 100 Hz input current. Your report, in html, should detail your design considerations, and measured results showing the TIA's performance. Your report is due at the end of lab on Wednesday, May 4. 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).
