Bandwidth of inverting and non-inverting op-amps

If the same op-amp is used in both inverting and non-inverting modes (with same closed loop gain using appropriate resistors), will the closed loop bandwidth of the op-amp in both cases be the same? ...

How can I find the bandwidth of a sinc function? [closed]

I have a solved problem and it says the bandwidth of the function: $$sinc(\frac \omega {20000}) \cdot rect(\frac \omega {20000 \pi})$$ is 10 kHz. Why it is not 20 kHz or 40 kHz ?

Operational Amplifier gain bandwidth product

If the gain bandwidth product of an operational amplifier is a constant and |Vout/Vin| is also a constant does that mean that the operational amplifier will not function for all but 1 frequency? ...

Measuring Bandwidth of a 1e10 gain TIA

I'm trying to measure the bandwidth of a TIA with a gain of 1e9 on the first stage and 10x on the second stage. The first stage OpAmp is the LTC6268 with a 1G Ohm feedback resistor and the second is a ...

Open-loop gain vs supply voltage

I have a question regarding the relationship between open-loop-gain and supply voltage. Using op270 as an example: We need to operate this device at +-5V. The datasheet has a plot (Figure 19) which ...

What is bandwidth?

I'm having hard time understand what bandwidth really is? The book i'm using defines it as the width of a signal's spectrum (where spectrum is the range of frequencies in a signal). So, for example, ...

gain, bandwidth and GBWP of current to voltage converter with op-amp

It might be a silly question since I am new to circuits and have little knowledge about it. I've learned that gain of a current to voltage convertor with op-amp is determined by feedback resistor <...

Are radio stations with higher frequency able to transmit higher quality audio?

e.g. a radio station at 100 mhz on FM vs a 50 mhz radio station. Wouldn't the latter have a lower bandwidth therefore lower quality audio/bit rate? If this is true, this must also mean that 2.4ghz ...
