i have bought an ADL5910 peak/envelope eval board to get peak voltages with peak period 1.67 seconds.
basically, the element i am trying to measure has a peak voltage of around 0.4 to 40 volts which occurs every 1.67 seconds. All I want to do is get the peak voltage from each pulse and output those values to a microprocessor.
I have been trying to use the data sheet which describes the 5910 but it doesn't seem to indicate where to measure the output - I tried Q but it seems this is just the flip-flop as it outputs 0 or 1 only. If i'm running the signal into Rfin_SW, do I measure output peak values at Rfout_SW? Also, it seems that the board has to be reset manually from outside after each peak is detected - is that right?
Any help much appreciated as, clearly, I am a newbie on this stuff.
