Matched Resistor Networks for Precision Amplifier Applications

Tyler Hutchison - Signal Conditioning Design Engineer May 1st 2012
Introduction Some ideal op amp configurations assume that the feedback resistors exhibit perfect matching. In practice, resistor non-idealities can affect various circuit parameters such as common mode rejection ratio (CMRR), harmonic distortion and stability. For instance, as shown in Figure 1, a single-ended amplifier configured ...
