# beta of inverting opamp amplifier

I have doubt about beta of feedback loop of inverting amplifier. The expression for the feedback gain is :

$$A_{cl} =\frac{A}{1 + A \cdot \beta}$$

what is value of beta here? and how do I reach to final expression

$$A_{cl} =\frac{R_f}{R_in}$$

• Any book on op amps can answer this. Have you done any research? What is your source for these equations? – Barry Sep 22 '17 at 13:08
• missing the sign (-) and GBW of OA. – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Sep 22 '17 at 18:12

The circuit is not exactly equivalent to the two blocks. Some steps must be taken before arriving to that formula. $\beta$ in fact is not $R_{in}/R_{f}$.

It is $R_{in}/(R_{in}+R_f)$ instead. Which is the same as the non inverting configuration.

Removing the internal summing node (notice that the signs are brought to the external one!) you get: (Then if you want you can bring the first block inside the loop, but $A_{OL}(s) \cdot \beta$ does not change. And that's the term you'll be considering to analyze the stability of the closed loop system).

If $A_{OL} = \infty$, then you get:

$$A_{CL}=-\frac {R_{f}}{R_{in}+R_{f}} \cdot \beta^{-1} = - \frac {R_{f}}{R_{in}}$$

In general (not in this case, assuming an ideal OA ), you could also have another block (transfer function) at the output.
