Abstract

The goal of this MQP was to design an interactive Application Demo Board for the Instrumentation Amplifier AD8295 that could be used in electronics trade-shows worldwide to demonstrate the versatility of this product. Instrumentation Amplifiers (In-Amps) are ideal for extracting and processing small differential signals from high common-mode voltages. Traditionally, these amplifiers have been used for applications in the medical and automotive industries. The AD8295 from Analog Devices is their latest in-amp product and comprises of a precision In-Amp, 2 uncommitted Op-Amps and a matched resistor pair all on the same substrate. This provides immense versatility and allows the product to be designed into a myriad of applications as a space saving, precise, and low power alternative.
