INA326: Volt In/Current Out

Part Number: INA326

Hello,

I am trying to get the output current to configure 10uA/Volt input. So far this design works, until I try to go higher than 2V. It seems to be having some convergence issues. I believe it has to do with INA326. I wanted to see if someone had more insight on the subject. Maybe how I need to set some Analysis Parameters? Any information can be helpful.

Best Regards.

  • Hi Miguel,

    Thanks for your post. I can help. It looks like you are referring to TIPD107: http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/slau507/slau507.pdf

    • What is your expected input range? 
    • What is your desired output range?

    This design is for 0-5V in, 0-5µA out but we can try to tweak this for your requirements.

    Hello Tamara,

    You are correct, I am referring to TIPD107.  My expected input range is from 0V-3V. Which I want to be able to output 0-30uA. I was able to design is as such to give me 10uA per volt input, but after 2V input, TINA TI seems to give me convergence errors. It doesnt specify completely, but it says Operation point not found. Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Miguel,

    Your circuit looks right to me. I did make two changes to my attachment below:

    1. I changed C2 my circuit from 1nF to 500pF. 
      1. For Gain = 10V/V; R1=40kohm, R2=200kohm, C2=500pF
      2. This is on page 5 of the design
    2. I changed OPA2333 from your circuit to OPA333.

    Take a look.

    Thank you so much Tamara, one quick question. The change from OPA2333 to OPA333, is that just to make the simulation work? Theoretically isn't OPA2333 just two OPA333 on the same chip? Or would using the OPA2333 for applied purposes actually vary that differently from OPA333?

  • In reply to Miguel Partida:

    That's right, Miguel. The OPA2333 is just 2 OPA333 in one package.

    Since you are only utilizing one OPA333, though, I switched it out to the correct package.

    Thanks Tamara, not sure why my design didn't work for me, but the one you sent worked well. 

    Best Regards.
