LT1016 – LS74121 Voltage Controlled Pulse Width Generator/ Monostable Multivibrator

Mono-stable multivibrator circuit generates a fixed pulse width when receiving a trigger signal on its input. The pulse width of the output is fixed regardless of the input pulse duration/width. In practical application, the width of the output pulse is determined by choosing the right components values for certain application. In today’s digital electronics, mono-stable function can be easily implemented […]

30-Khz Bandwidth High Linearity Opto-Isolated Amplifier

Using optocoupler to directly transfer a linear (analog) voltage would produce¬† a large unpredictable linearity error, which is also sensitive to temperature changes. By using frequency modulation, the total system’s linearity will¬† depend only on the linearity of the V/F and F/V converter, which is fortunately cancel each other if we use similar devices with similar non-linearity error characteristic. A […]

Pulse Width to Analog Voltage Demodulator

This is a schematic diagram of a pulse width to analog demodulator circuit. This circuit is used to demodulate the pulse width to analog voltage level. With input pulse width range of 0 to 1 microsecond, this circuit can produces Output range of 0 to 10 v. The input pulse is integrated and the final value is held until next […]

TC9400 Wide Frequency Range Pulse Generator

The reason why TC9400 V/F converter is very useful in the laboratory are because it’s portable, battery-operated, and low cost frequency source. Both pulse and square-wave outputs are provided by the TC9400. A triangular waveform can also be generated by adding an op-amp integrator. The outputs can be frequency-modulated via the FM input. [Circuit’s schematic diagram source: Microchip Application Note]

Superlinear FM (Frequency Modulator)

Designing various electronic circuit system (synthesizer, modem, decoder, data converter, etc) of ten need a frequency modulator subsystem. An FM modulator is very easy to build with TC9400 since the it has very good linearity as V/F converter. Here is the system’s block diagram: While Vin determines the amount of modulation (FM deviation) around the center frequency, the potentiometer determines […]
