for simple peak detector of diode and series capacitor, i 'd like to know why the capacitor reaches the peak after some cycles. i think the charged voltage level in 1st cycle is vp-vdiode and it is the max value can be reached using this circuit
I have to calculate the ripple voltage of four different capacitors in a power supply. the power supply is a transformer, bridge rectifier, load resistor and capacitor would go across the load.
I used multisim to simulate the circuit. I looked at the ripple which has a peak to peak value.
my question is, to get the mean dc value, what is the formula for this.
I would like to amplify a 2 GHz sinusoidal voltage signal (0.22 V peak to peak) using an operational amplifier. The gain I would like from the operational amplifier is about 5, that is, I would like a voltage output from the amplifier to be approximately 1 V peak to peak given the input. The problem is I can't seem to find an op. amp.
I hope I have posted in the correct forum.
I am trying to create a simple valley peak detector. I have been able to make a positive peak detect using a zener and or schottky diode. I would like to build a valley PD using a zener or shcottky.
The circuit for postive peak detect is like this: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_3/chpt_3/5.html
I've had a burning question for a little while now..... I know there isn't much love for the CVT in the enthusiast world but it looks like they are coming even with us kicking and screaming.
The new 2015 WRX has the first "performance" CVT as far as I know.
OK. I have been using Ubunutu for a number of years now ( maybe 6) and have been a huge fan /supporter. We have three computers in our house running on Ubuntu. Two on Lubuntu and one on Ubuntu. Every thing is great then come 12.10. The upgrade screws up all three computers. So I say well.... I should do a clean install....screws up all three computer.
