Abstract

Recently we have proposed several voltage noise measurement methods that allow, at least in principle, the complete elimination of the noise introduced by the measurement amplifier. The most severe drawback of these methods is that they require a multistep measurement procedure. Since environmental conditions may change in the different measurement steps, the final result could be affected by these changes. This problem is solved by the one-step voltage noise measurement methodology based on a novel amplifier topology proposed in this paper. Circuit implementations for the amplifier building blocks based on operational amplifiers are critically discussed. The proposed approach is validated through measurements performed on a prototype circuit. (C) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
