The Calculation of Output Offset Voltage OPAMP

Please see the attached files.


Solution Preview

We first look at the OPAMP circuit given and note it is of the inverting type so the magnitude of the gain ( ignore the - sign) is given by the ratio Rf / R1

We are also told this is 20dB which is equivalent to a factor of 100 so we can write

Rf / R1 = 100 so that Rf = 100*R1

Further since we are told R1 = 10kOhm (10^4 Ohm) we can deduce Rf as

Rf = 100 x 10kOhm = 1MOhm = 10^6 Ohm

As an aside also note that in the formula given the factor

(Rf + R1)/R1 = 1 + Rf/R1 =. 1 + 100 =. 101. This will make the maths simpler later ...
