Lm 741 Pin Configuration

Lm 741 op-amps Ic pin configuration and testing are given in detail in this article. Usually, this ic is numbered counter-clockwise around it. It is 8 pins integrated circuit and provides superior results in integrator, summing amplifier, and general feedback applications in electronics devices. These are high gain op-amp the voltage on the inverting input can be maintained almost equal to Vin.


Pin configuration of lm 741 op-amp  ic is given below

  • Pin 1 is the Offset null.
  • Pin 2 is the Inverting input pin.
  • Pin 3 is a non-inverting input pin.
  • Pin 4 is a negative voltage supply.
  • Pin 5 is an offset null pin.
  • Pin 6 is the output voltage pin ic.
  • Pin 7 is a positive voltage supply.
  • Pin 8 has no connection.

The 741 op-amps are used in two ways such as an inverting and a noninverting.

An Inverting Amplifier

In IC 741 pin2 is the input pin and pin6 is the output pin. When the voltage is applied through the pin2 the output comes from pin 6(output pin).  When the polarity is positive at the input, the polarity that comes from the output is negative and vise versa. So the output is always reverse.

Non-Inverting Amplifier

In an op-amp, lm 741 IC pin3 is the input pin and pin6 is the output pin. When the voltage is applied through the pin3 then the output comes from the output pin 6. When the polarity is positive at the pin3, then the polarity on pin6 is also the positive output that remains the same (non-inverting).
