This is the eighth of nine videos in the TI Precision Labs – Op Amps curriculum that addresses operational amplifier noise. In the previous training videos we introduced methods for calculating, simulating, and measuring noise. In this video we will dive a little deeper into the topic of 1/f, or flicker, noise. Specifically, we will discuss the 0.1Hz to 10Hz noise plots that are included in most op amp data sheets. We will cover how these plots are generated and explain their significance, and we’ll also discuss the differences between long-term noise measurements in standard amplifiers compared to zero-drift amplifiers.
