Inverting Adder

Ri, 1 = Ri, 2 = Rf
Vo = -(Vi, 1 + Vi, 2)

Using the concept of inverting amplifier, the op-amp can be used as an adder (actually
inverting adder) to sum up some input signals. In Figure1 the output of the op-amp is
V0 = - ( E1 + E2 )
It should be noted here that the ratios (Rf /R1 ) and (Rf /R2 ) must be equal to unity.

1. Construct the above circuits.

2. Set biasing voltages to +15V and -15V.
3. Calculate the output voltage of the inverting adder using the multimeter.
4. Set the ac voltage source to square wave mode for the integrator. Set the wave to 5V
amplitude and 500Hz frequency. Draw the input and output wave.
5. Set the ac voltage source to triangular wave mode for the differentiator. Set the wave to
5V amplitude and 500Hz frequency. Draw the input and output wave.


1. Derive the expression of the output voltage for the inverting adder, integrator and

2. If the inputs of an inverting amplifier are 2V, 3V and 5V, then the output of an
inverting amplifier is 10V. Can you design a circuit which gives +10V at the output?
Draw the circuit diagram and show that it produces +10V at the output. (Hint: use an
inverting amplifier of unity gain at the output of the inverting adder).

3. Design a circuit which will take two inputs v1(t) and v2(t); producing an output
of v0(t) = 0.5v1(t) +20 v 2 (t ) dt .
