Where to use the INA333 Instrumentation Amplifier?

The INA333 is an Instrumentation Amplifier with Rail to Rail feature. It also operates at a very low current making it suitable for battery-operated applications. An instrumentation amplifier is a type of differential amplifier that has buffer amplifiers connected to their input pins. This eliminates the need for impedance matching, thus making it practically suitable for measurement and test equipment.

 

How to use INA333:

The INA333 only requires a resistor to sets its gain value and hence can be easily set up. A very basic commonly used circuit for INA333 is shown below.

INA333 Circuit Diagram

The IC is powered using pin 7 and pin 4 is connected to ground. Here I have used a single supply of +5V. The non - inverting pin (pin 2) and the inverting pin (pin 3) are connected to the signal which has to be amplified or compared base on the application of the Op-Amp. The Reference pin (pin 5) is normally grounded along with pin 4, the reference pin is used to direct the output towards a voltage when the difference voltage between the inverting and the non-inverting pin is 0V.

The Gain of an Op-Amp can be set by simply connecting the right value of the resistor across the pin +Rg (pin 8) and the pin –Rg (pin 1). Here I have connected a resistor of value 500Ω which will set the Op-Amp at a gain value of 100. The formulae to calculate the value of gain from R is given below.

G = (49.4 kΏ / RG) + 1
