RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

OP Amp output Impedance - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi,
I want to ask if it is correct to measure Op-Amp output impedance by measuring S22 with Network Analyzer

Thank

David-S

The answer is yes, but just be sure you do not exceed the DC voltage input level to the network analyzer.

Hi,

I agree with Brad. just wanna add, probably it's safer to use attenuator at the port 2 of network analyzer.

Regards,
Jean

The assumption made in the previous responses is that you want the closed-loop output impedance (of the entire circuit), not the intrinsic output impedance of the operational amplifier (by itself).

Is this a correct assumption?

Good Luck!
