inverting amplifier

inverting amplifier

[in′vərd·iŋ ′am·plə‚fī·ər]
(electronics)
Amplifier whose output polarity is reversed as compared to its input; such an amplifier obtains its negative feedback by a connection from output to input, and with high gain is widely used as an operational amplifier.

CNFET-FCOA-Based Inverting Amplifier. As the name suggests, input and output waveforms are out of phase or are having 180[degrees] phase shift, i.e., whenever input voltage increases, output voltage decreases and vice-a-versa.
The novel CNFET-FCOA is further used to develop analog signal processing circuits such as noninverting amplifier, inverting amplifier, summer, subtractor, differentiator, integrator, half-wave rectifier, full-wave rectifier, clipper, clamper, comparator, peak detector, and zero crossing detector.
The output signal, y, is -(1/[K.sub.1]) [integral]ydt passed through inverting integrator 1 and changes to ([K.sub.2]/[K.sub.1]) [integral] ydt when passed through inverting amplifier 1.
The magnitude comparator consists of an inverting amplifier and an integrator that can be realized with operational amplifiers.
