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 ...

Effects of Biasing Current and Offset Voltage to Op-Amps

The circuit to the problem is a non-inverting amplifier with a resistive-network feedback. The circuit is assumed to be ideal, with the exception of the effect of biasing current and offset voltage.

The problem is: what is the output error voltage produced by the biasing current and the offset voltage?

This solution will help students solve related problems to op-amp circuits and also will also understand the possible effects to the output voltage when those offsets in op-amps exist in a system.
