Opamp input offset voltage when saturation

I wonder, how to affect the input offset voltage of inverting amplifier when it's output in saturation? I'm changing gain with decreasing the value of R2. When the gain is greater than 5, output in ...

Definition of the offset voltage for a single-ended op-amp

Let's consider an op-amp: The book I'm reading says that, ideally, if the voltage difference between the two inputs is zero (thus vin1=vin2) then the output voltage should be zero. However, because ...

Op Amp Input Offset Voltage vs Common Mode Voltage

I would like to use an op amp AD8618 for a design, and need the input offset voltage to be low. For this op amp it seems fine with maximum of 65uV, but looking at the charts on page 6 etc, it seems to ...
