LM13700 OTA – The missing forumla

LM13700 OTA – The missing forumla @ Lushprojects Blog.

If you do anything with analogue syths you quickly run in to the Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA) as a key component. These are amps whose current output depends on the voltage difference at the inputs and a control current that scales the gain. They are used for voltage controlled filters, voltage controlled amplifiers and oscillators. The subject of OTAs has a complicated and initially frightening set of assumptions, concepts and implicit ideas around it and getting a handle on the whole thing takes some effort. This blog post isn’t a general introduction to OTAs but it talks about how I solved a particular problem in my understanding and spotted a mistake in one of the common write-ups.

Designing an analogue synth? Chances are you’ll run into the LM13700 OTA – a transconductance amplifier often used in VCOs.
