[This is a re-post. I deleted the first one due to a profile error.]
I am trying to compute the output noise of for a Butterworth filter built using Sallen-Key stages. I reduced the circuit to the following voltage follower to investigate incomprehensible noise results.
R3D = 1.02Meg noise is 83300 nVrms
R3D = 1.05Meg noise is 1.67 nVrms (a significant decrease for a 3% increase in resistance)
So, noise decreases with increased resistance? That's the opposite of what I expected. The noise gain has not changed, so op-amp voltage noise contribution should not change; op-amp current noise should cause higher noise with increasing resistance values; resistor thermal noise should also result in more output noise with a higher R3D.
I attached the .asc file.
Does anybody see what I am missing? The simulator results make no sense to me. Thanks.
