What is Inverting amplifier?

• Inverting amplifier is one in which the output is exactly 180 degree out of phase with respect to input(i.e. if you apply a positive voltage, output will be negative).
• Output is an inverted(in terms of phase) amplified version of input.

Circuit operation

The inverting amplifier using op-amp is shown in the figure below,

Assuming the op-amp is ideal and applying the concept of virtual short at the input terminals of op-amp, the voltage at the inverting terminal is equal to non inverting terminal. The simplified circuit is shown in the figure below

Applying KCL at inverting node we get

(0−Vi)/Ri+(0−Vo)/Rf=0(0−Vi)/Ri+(0−Vo)/Rf=0

By rearranging the terms we will get

Voltage gainAv=Vo/Vi=–Rf/RiAv=Vo/Vi=–Rf/Ri

Gain

Gain of inverting amplifier Av=–Rf/RiAv=–Rf/Ri

Non Inverting amplifier: Non Inverting amplifier is one in which the output is in phase with respect to input(i.e. if you apply a positive voltage, output will be positive ). Output is an Non inverted(in terms of phase) amplified version of input.

#### What is Inverting amplifier?

Inverting Amplifier is a normal OP-Amp in which the output is given as feedback to the inverted terminal of input by means of a feedback resistor.

Problem with Op-Amp is that the output gain of an Op-Amp is very high in an open loop, and that makes the Op-Amp unstable and difficult to control.

In case of amplifiers, range of input signals are very small (few micro-volts), and with this small input they give very high output gain (120dB or more)which makes the Op-Amp difficult to control, and these high gains are of no use in times.

To overcome this, the output gain is feedback to the inverting terminal of the input through a Feedback Resistor(Rf), By doing this we can able to control the overall gain of the Op-Amp by means of Negative Feedback(since feedback is given to the inverting terminal of input).

By connecting the output to input it creates a Closed Loop circuit to the Op-Amp and the output gain is called Closed Loop Gain.

Now the Op-Amp becomes Closed Loop Inverting Amplifier which uses negative feedback to control the overall gain of the amplifier.

In this process of feedback we do lose some part of the actual output gain of the amplifier, but as said in open loop amplifier produces very high gain and we can afford to lose some part of it.

Hope it helps.

Please correct me if i am wrong at any point.

Thanks.

### For what application is an inverting amplifier used and for what application is a non-inverting amplifier used?

Inverting amplifiers have higher gain. input and output are out of phase by 180 degrees, inverting amplifier is most widely used in oscillator circuits to satisfy Barkaushen criteria so that sustained oscillations are produced.

On other hand non inverting amplifiers are used as buffers for impedance matching wherein a low impedance load can be connected to high impedance source so that there is no distortion in the output of the amplifier due to impedance mismatch.

Note: All amplifiers are designed to have high input impedance and low output impedance so impedance matching is very necessary in the case of multistage amplifiers and cascaded amplifiers.

#### What are the advantages of an inverting amplifier (as opposed to non-inverting)?

I love this question and I will not be surprised if I get some disagreement. I assume you are talking about using a standard IC as an amplifier which can be connected inverting or non-inverting.

In audio and instrumentation we generally avoid the inverting connection of an OP Amp as it has lower input impedance and more noise due to the input resistor.

The non inverting amplifier can have a direct input (no input resistor) and low value feedback resistors to reduce noise to a minimum and enjoy high input impedance.

Of course, if you need inversion and noise is not an issue then it is fine. If you need to invert and have low noise, get your gain from a noninverting amplifier and then invert in a second OP Amp.

#### When do we use inverting op-amps and non-inverting op-amps?

It depends on what you are driving with the output, and which one is more convenient. That’s it. It doesn’t really depend on the application. It only depends on the design of your specific circuit.

Thanks for the A2A!

Inverting Op-Amps are used mainly for high-frequency applications where high input impedance is not a requirement. This is because, the slew rate of Inverting Op-Amp is high, compared to non-inverting configuration. See the pic below (Image reference

The inverting terminal is isolated from the output. Whereas for non the gate-drain capacitance can act as miller capacitance lowering the slew rate of the op-amp in non-configuration.

However, non-Inverting op-amp configuration is more suitable to drive the output because of its inherent advantage of infinite input resistance & nil output resistance. For eg: in audio op-amp can be used as a buffer between the audio amplifier & speaker for efficient transfer of signals.

## What is meant by an inverting and non-inverting “input” for op amplifiers?

These terms describe the direction that the output voltage changes for a difference in input levels. If the voltage at the non-inverting input is more positive than the voltage at the inverting input, the output voltage will be positive. If the voltage at the inverting input is more positive than that at the non-inverting input, the output voltage will be negative.

An OPAMP multiplies the voltage difference between it’s noninverting and inverting inputs with a number A and outputs it. This number is 100, 200 or more depending on the different parts from different vendors. It is an analog device. So we can write this input/output equation as follows

#### Vout = A (Vin+ – Vin-)

OPAMPs are generally used with the feedback resistors to control the input/output gain as shown below.

By using simple math we can write the equation for the above circuit. Assume that A is the open-loop gain and the input impedance is very high at input pins (megaohms) and output impedance is very low near zero at the output pin.

Vout = A(0 – (Rin Vout/(Rf + Rin) ) + (Rf Vin/(Rin + Rf)))

Note that V+ is grounded, that means 0 volt.

From above equation, when A goes infinity, we can drive that

Vout = Vin Rf/Rin
