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
Can you please advise me on the way forward. I have a project to determine the seperation between 40MHz bursts of signals. Zero crossing detection would have been ideal but the signal is quite noisy. I therefore am trying to build a circuit that detects the occurrence of a peak and generates a pulse upon said detection.
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've found something extremely werid on my EC2 instance today; a peak on the "Network In" that goes beyond anything that had happened before, as you can see in the screenshot. Any idea about how to check some logs that help me understand what has caused this peak???
The apache access logs are normal,no more petitions than normally...
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.
