TI Precision Labs - Op Amps: Noise
Did you know that a standard resistor component sitting upon your desk doing "nothing" is actually generating noise?
Understanding noise in a real-world circuit is critical to achieving your overall system noise performance goal, but noise calculations are complicated and often require long hand calculations. After viewing this series and completing the associated exercises, you will be an op amp noise expert! You will be able to quickly calculate the noise of your circuit through five "rules of thumb" that drastically reduce the complexity of noise calculations. We will also show you how to simulate your circuit to validate your hand calculations. What if the op amp does not have a noise model? Don't worry - we'll show you how easy it is to create your own! Finally, we will demonstrate noise test techniques and take real-world noise measurements.
This video series covers op amp noise theory, then applies it to a hands-on lab which includes TINA-TI circuit simulations and experimentation using a real circuit with test equipment.
