Original Abstract

In this paper, new minimal configuration precision full-wave rectifier is presented. The structure employs one current and one voltage conveyor and only two diodes. It enables to process both low-voltage and low-current signals. Compared to the op amp based circuit, the proposed circuit is able to rectify signals up to 500 kHz and beyond with no or small distortion. Experimental measurements are performed that show the feasibility of the new precision full-wave rectifier.

V článku je popsán přesný dvoucestný usměrňovač minimální konfigurace. Struktura využívá jeden proudový a jeden napěťový konvejor a dvě diody. Zaspojedí dovoluje zpracovávat napěťové i proudové signály. Ve srovnání se zapojením využívající operační zesilovač, popsaný obvod dovoluje usměrňovat signály o kmitočtu 500kHz s nimimálním zkreslením. Činnost nového přesného usměrňovače byla ověřena experimentálními měřeními.
