ABSTRACT
The article offers tips on how to design cost-efficient instrumentation amplifiers. One can have an unexpensive and improved performing amplifiers by limiting the shortcomings of operational amplifiers (op-amp) through the provision of low to medium input impedance. One can also limit the common-mode-rejection effects by providing high performance, high-bandwidth op-amp.
