NOISE program

Noise calculations in op amp circuits are one of the most confused calculations that an analog engineer must perform.

One cannot just look at noise specifications; the total op amp circuit including resistors and operating frequency range must be included in calculations for circuit noise. A “low” noise amplifier in one circuit will become a “high” noise amplifier in another circuit.

As part of this design note, an IBM-PC2 or compatible computer program, NOISE, has been written to perform the noise calculations. This program allows the user to ...
