Current Summing Amplifier

the picture below shows us several current sources connected to the negativ input an opamp (ex.741)


we can calculate Vout as below






If R1=R2=R3 (=R) we have




and the output voltage is proportional to the sum of the input voltages.

For only one input and a constant reference voltage


where the second term represents an offset voltage. This provides a convenient method for obtaining an output signal with any required voltage offset.
