Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Amplify signals, part of Electronics Foundations: Semiconductor Devices.
- [Instructor] As their name suggests…one of the primary uses for operational amplifiers…is to amplify signals.…And one of the simplest op-amp configurations…to do that is the inverting amplifier.…This configuration uses two resistors…to provide divide feedback to the op-amp…and it's called an inverting amplifier…because the output signal will be negative…or a flipped version of the input signal…and scaled by some amount.…One of the resistors connects the input signal…to the inverting or negative op-amp terminal…and I'll refer to that as R in,…the other resistor, R f, provides feedback…from the output of the op-amp…back to the inverting input.…
The non-inverting, or positive op-amp terminal,…is simply connected to ground.…The inverting amplifiers closed-loop voltage gain…which is the ratio of its output voltage…divided by the input voltage,…is equal to negative R f over R in.…R f and R in are both fixed values…that I can choose when designing the circuit.…So for example if I decided to make my feedback…resistor ten kiloohms and the input resistor one kiloohm,…
