# Electronics/Op-Amps/Non Linear Configurations/Negative Impedance Converter

## Operation

Creates a resistor having a negative value for any signal generator

• In this case, the ratio between the input voltage and the input current (thus the input resistance) is given by:
${\displaystyle R_{\text{in}}=-R_{3}{\frac {R_{1}}{R_{2}}}}$

In general, the components ${\displaystyle R_{1}}$ , ${\displaystyle R_{2}}$ , and ${\displaystyle R_{3}}$  need not be resistors; they can be any component that can be described with an impedance.
