Drawing a comparator op-amp in Multisim

I'm attempting to draw the following two circuits up in NI Multisim 10, to attempt simulation and confirm my calculations. However, I'm not sure how to represent the Vin and Vout sources. Also, ...

Building a intermediate op-amp

I'd like to build a cheap and easy op-amp to use with my electric guitar. The op-amp should input from the guitar's jack and output to a standard "earphone's cable" jack ( not sure about the jargon ...

Tiny, cheap audio buffer with mute?

I need to buffer an audio signal (feeding into a variable input impedance), and make it mutable with a digital control. The best thing I can think of is an op-amp (maybe TS971? 3×2 mm SOT23) feeding ...

Can I use an op-amp in buffer configuration as a voltage source? [closed]

I'm working on a scale project where I use an INA126 to get my signal. After the filters I need to subtract voltage from it. I'm using an op-amp in the appropriate configuration. It does this ...

OpAmps - Single Supply or Dual?

I'm trying to pick an op-amp and I'm having trouble figuring out if the op-amp needs a positive and a negative power supply or if I can connect it to ground and the positive supply. What do I need to ...

Configuring INA126 Instrumentation Amplifier for Data Acquisition

I have a TI INA126 (datasheet) instrumentation amplifier that I want to use to amplify a noisy, low-level signal from a fabric-based resistive stretch sensor. The resistance ranges for the fabric ...

Op-Amp Slew Rate Requirements

After looking over this question and the answers received, it prompted me to wonder: Given pulse signals generated by a uC, what kind of slew rate on an op-amp will you need to reproduce the waveform ...

How can I convert the output from a momentary switch to a pulse on push and a pulse on release?

The title pretty much says it all. I have an idea to try out involving a op-amp differentiator circuit and a diode bridge, but I am flying blind. Also I am trying to accomplish this without a micro-...

Why the resistor in this op-amp circuit?

Here's a circuit diagram for a signal response test circuit from the spec sheet for a HA-5195 op amp and looks like a non-inverting amplifier circuit with a gain of 5, plus the 200Ω resistor between ...
