Converters: Sine to Square Wave
Converters -- Main Page
Last Updated on: Saturday, August 30, 2014 10:27 AM

 

Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :
  • LINE POWERED 60Hz CLOCK GENERATOR
    This circuit is connected to the 120vac power line and transfers 60Hz clock pulses to a logic circuit. The optoisolator used provides 5000 volts of isolation between the power line and the logic side of the circuit.
  • WIDE BAND ZERO CROSS DETECTOR
    This circuit was designed to convert a low amplitude 40KHz signal into a clean square wave signal.  It will work with inputs as small as 5mv peak-to-peak or as large as 3 volts peak to peak.  The input frequency can range from a few kilohertz to about 150KHz.

Time-tag impulses with zero-crossing circuit -  24-Jan-02 Issue of EDN  A "constant-fraction discriminator" usually performs the time-tagging of impulsive events, which have a peaking time of the signal amplitude. The implementation of this technique requires a delay in the input signal of approximately the same amount as the signal's rise time. You can attain this delay by using a coaxial cable of an appropriate length..... [Design Idea by Elio Rossi, Itesre-CNR, Bologna, Italy]
