I want to ask if it is correct to measure Op-Amp output impedance by measuring S22 with Network Analyzer

The answer is yes, but just be sure you do not exceed the DC voltage input level to the network analyzer.

I agree with Brad. just wanna add, probably it's safer to use attenuator at the port 2 of network analyzer.

The assumption made in the previous responses is that you want the closed-loop output impedance (of the entire circuit), not the intrinsic output impedance of the operational amplifier (by itself).

Is this a correct assumption?

Good Luck!

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
