TSP #5 – Op-Amps, PWM and Ignition Coils Tutorial (Part 3/3)

In this episode (Part 3/3) Shahriar discusses methods for generating a pulse-width-modulated (PWM) signal entirely in the analog domain by employing operational-amplifiers (Op-Amps). A total of four op-amps from a single power supply are used in unity-gain negative feedback, astable positive feedback, integrator and open-loop comparator configurations. The theory of Continue reading TSP #5 – Op-Amps, PWM and Ignition Coils Tutorial (Part 3/3)
