I want to use the AD630 in my application. Like the original poster, I am wondering about DC signals. I have an optical sensor that outputs a modulated signal (a constant square wave of 2kHz, no carrier (since it has no data)), due to LEDs turning on and off at 2kHz. Is it in my case also totally unnecessary to use a lock-in amplifier? I mean, I have a square wave signal that varies between 0V and +400mV that I would like to isolate from noise with much higher amplitude. It's not AC in that it doesn't have dual polarities, but it's not a constant DC signal either. If lock-in is unnecessary and if there are simpler ways for my application, could you please advice me on such? Thanks in advance.
