Default All purpose SS op amp

I am still developing my abilities and find myself all too often
struggling with op amp design.

Can anyone here suggest an "all purpose" amplifier built around a
readily available op amp and transistor follower that will operate
within the specifications below? Preferably without changes in
componentry except to upgrade the power transistor depending upon load
requirements.

DC coupled with frequency response DC to 20KHz
Input signal level 1-2V
4 to 12 volts single supply
Low power DIP op amp, suited to battery operation if required
Variable gain, unity to 10 via trimpot (dependent on rail V)
Swing as close to rail as practical without using a rail-to-rail amp
Drive resistive load 20 to 200 ohms (dependent on power transistor
used.)

Other specs are non-critical.

Are any of these, such as the wide supply range, inherently
contradictory to a predominantly fixed value circuit?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

You've just described the National LM386, as if you'd copied that off
the data sheet:

Default All purpose SS op amp

I thought the LM386 was an audio amp (not to DC), but had a try anyway
with a 5Hz squarewave. Distortion was pretty bad. Also, regardless of
frequency, I only get 1V swing out with 6V in. It is supposed to have
a built-in gain of 20. This I don't understand.

Getting back to my original post. Is it possible to have a single op
amp design that will cover the variation in supply voltage and load
described?

Thanks for any advice.

I see no confusion; he seems to know exactly what he wants.

The "Low power DIP op amp" is what he'll use to drive the output

wants, while "All purpose SS op amp" is less clumsy than "All

Is there any particular reson you want to use discretes for the output stage ?
You'll increase complexity lots.


DC coupled with frequency response DC to 20KHz


Do you mean audio ?

4 to 12 volts single supply


If it's a single supply you'll have to AC couple the signal ! Unless you want a
bridge tied load of course (more complicated).


Low power DIP op amp, suited to battery operation if required


Well, power dissipation is likely to be predominantly determined by any quiesent
current in the output stage (to avoid cross-over distortion) actually.


Variable gain, unity to 10 via trimpot (dependent on rail V)
Swing as close to rail as practical without using a rail-to-rail amp

The simplest best bet might be to look at some car audio amplifier chips.

You have to tie a cap from ground to one of the gain set pins to get that.

Default All purpose SS op amp

I am sorry if my original post caused confusion. Yes, I am looking for
an op amp because of the DC requirement. The LM386 I tried to no
avail.

Phrasing it another way, why is there no predefined op amp/Darlington
configuration, or off-the-shelf power op amp, that can do the all same
things as the LM386 does with audio, but down to DC?

Single supply
Wide supplyvoltage range
DC coupling
Easily variable gain
Low power
Etc.

At first, I thought such specs might be mutually exclusive. However,
if there are such design limitations, they seem to be receeding fast.

For example, there is the "new" OPA569, rated at 2A. It meets all my
requirements except it only operates up to 5.5V. I need a range of 4
to 12V.

http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/opa569.html

Can someone explain, why can't something like this be done with a
CA3130 and a couple of transistors.

will do what you want, but because of the single supply and no
capacitor rule, the input signal must be offset and the output
signal will swing about a DC value, which will waste power in the
load as well as in the single (which is what you asked for) output
transistor.

The circuit list, above, is for LTSPICE, and if you don't have a
copy you can download one, free, at:

http://www.linear.com/designtools/software/

One caveat: the output transistor I used can't dissipate the power
needed to feed the 20 ohm load shown, but I didn't want to spend a
lot of time looking for the right one this early in the game.

frequency, I only get 1V swing out with 6V in. It is supposed to have

** Try again - you got it fouled up somehow.

With a 4 volt supply, square wave drive and 33 ohm load ( no coupling cap),
the output is a clean. 2.6 volt p-p square wave at *any* frequency up to
20kHz.

With a 12 volt supply, same set up as above, the output swing is 10 volt
p-p.

Same p-p swings apply to a sine wave input as well.


BTW

Make sure your input signal does not have a DC offset.

will do what you want, but because of the single supply and no
capacitor rule, the input signal must be offset and the output
signal will swing about a DC value, which will waste power in the
load as well as in the single (which is what you asked for) output
transistor.

The circuit list, above, is for LTSPICE, and if you don't have a
copy you can download one, free, at:

http://www.linear.com/designtools/software/

One caveat: the output transistor I used can't dissipate the power
needed to feed the 20 ohm load shown, but I didn't want to spend a
lot of time looking for the right one this early in the game.

The source is DC coupled and ground-referred, and since you're using
a single positive DC supply, the output is operating
emitter-follower class A and varies about a quiescent Vcc/2.
