If so, how close to the V- rail (GND) can the AD8036 output be driven?
Thank you Emman for your answer. I have ordered a couple of AD8036 for testing purpose.
I am using an AD8036 clamping amplifier in this scheme
It is used to clamp a square wave with boundaries +3.8V and +1.2V at 9KHz. Output is connected to a UMJ-123-D14-G VCO. This is the output I get:
Now I got very strange rising edge and…
I have confirmed that my customer is designing the circuit by using AD8036 which you recommended.
Thank you very much for your valuable recommendation.
Will operate a +1 gain. Want to operate with +12V supply voltage. Need 100kHz BW and clamp response time <1us.
Originally considered the AD8036, but clamp voltage is limited to 3.9V and supply voltage limited to 5V.
I also have to consider the OPA698.
Regarding the AD8036, I started playing with the Spice model (using LTSpice) and I am a bit surprised.
I simulated a non-inverting amplifier with a gain of 1, just like circuit TPC 4 of the datasheet, with +Vs=5V…
Regarding the peak detector function: integrating the rectified (out of the AD8036) wave will provide an image of the signal's amplitude, when this amplitude is constant.
Detecting peaks is always a tradeoff, you have to think about the rise and…
