EMI Rejection

The electromagnetic interference (EMI) rejection ratio, or EMIRR, describes the EMI immunity of operational amplifiers. An adverse effect that is common to many operational amplifiers is a change in the offset voltage as a result of RF signal rectification. An operational amplifier that is more efficient at rejecting this change in offset as a result of EMI has a higher EMIRR and is quantified by a decibel value. Measuring EMIRR can be performed in many ways, but this section provides the EMIRR IN+, which specifically describes the EMIRR performance when the RF signal is applied to the noninverting input pin of the operational amplifier. In general, only the noninverting input is tested for EMIRR for the following three reasons:

  1. Operational amplifier input pins are known to be the most sensitive to EMI, and typically rectify RF signals better than the supply or output pins.
  2. The noninverting and inverting operational amplifier inputs have symmetrical physical layouts and exhibit nearly matching EMIRR performance.
  3. EMIRR is easier to measure on noninverting pins than on other pins because the noninverting input terminal can be isolated on a printed-circuit-board (PCB). This isolation allows the RF signal to be applied directly to the noninverting input terminal with no complex interactions from other components or connecting PCB traces.Figure 46

The EMIRR IN+ of the OPA211 is plotted versus frequency as shown in Figure 46. If available, any dual and quad operational amplifier device versions have nearly similar EMIRR IN+ performance. The OPA211 unity-gain bandwidth is 45 MHz. EMIRR performance below this frequency denotes interfering signals that fall within the operational amplifier bandwidth.

Table 1 shows the EMIRR IN+ values for the OPA211 at particular frequencies commonly encountered in real-world applications. Applications listed in Table 1 may be centered on or operated near the particular frequency shown. This information may be of special interest to designers working with these types of applications, or working in other fields likely to encounter RF interference from broad sources, such as the industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) radio band.
