Offset sur un signal analogique. Precision Rectifiers. Precision RectifiersRod Elliott (ESP) First and Second Rules of Opamps To be able to understand much of the following, the basic rules of opamps need to be firmly embedded in the skull of the reader.

Precision Rectifiers

I came up with these many years ago, and - ignoring small errors caused by finite gain, input and output impedances - all opamp circuits make sense once these rules are understood. They are also discussed in the article Designing With Opamps in somewhat greater detail. Highly recommended if you are in the least bit unsure. The two rules are as follows ... These two rules describe everything an opamp does in any circuit, with no exceptions ... provided that the opamp is operating within its normal parameters. Armed with these rules and a basic understanding of Ohm's Law and analogue circuitry, it is possible to figure out what any opamp circuit will do under all normal operating conditions.

Schematic of microphone and pre-amp for low-noise 8-bit ADC. - SaikoLED. This post discusses how I went about integrating a microphone into the myki such that the low-resolution 8-bit ADC on the ATmega32U4 would be able to get a reasonable noise level.

In the myki light, this is done using the MAX9814, a single chip microphone amplifier with autogain control to prevent clipping and a low-noise microphone bias convenient for use with electrolet microphones. For a detailed circuit schematic as well as an explanation of how to use the MAX9814, please see below the break. Connecting up the Microphone and Input Noise: In this circuit, we can see the microphone on the far left.

It is a standard electrolet microphone, most of which require a 2V bias above a 2.2k resistor in series with the microphone and connected to ground. Audio signals will change the impedance of the microphone, producing a time varying inverted representation of this change. Here it is critical to keep noise low. Using the MAX9814 Chip’s Gain Features Next, we have the attack:release ratio. MasteringElectronicsDesign.com : Measure a Bipolar Signal with an Arduino Board. Arduino is a popular family of open source microcontroller boards.

Hobbyists, students and engineers all over the world use this platform to quickly design and prototype a microcontroller driven circuit. One of its interfaces with the analog world is the ADC. Since these boards are mostly designed around an ATMEL ATmega32 or ATmega168 microcontroller, the ADC has 8 inputs and 10-bit resolution, making it suitable for many applications. From time to time I receive a message through my Contact page with the question, how to interface a sensor, or an outside circuit with the Arduino ADC? In most cases the answer is an interface between a bipolar circuit and the Arduino board. In one of these messages a reader asked me how to build an interface between a board that has an output voltage of -2.5V to +2.5V and the Arduino ADC. Measuring audio input on microcontroller ADC. Hi all It's funny, isn't it?

Measuring audio input on microcontroller ADC

You just want to connect your music player's (smartphone) audio output to your arduino, maybe making LEDs blink in interesting patterns based on the music. You have a thought that the atmega328 probably won't like to have an AC signal connected to any pins, and next thing you know, you are out of your depth, reading up on analog circuits, opamps, virtual grounds for single supply. So, right now, I am in a bit of a confusion on the details. I basically have a setup with a stereo cable running from my phone to the circuit, with a black, a red and a white wire. This is what I have gathered so far:For using an opamp with at single supply, treating an AC signal, I need to create a virtual ground (usually halfways between VCC and GND (GND being the GND-pin on the arduino, the 'ordinary' ground in the circuit)).

Now, my questions for you are:0. ARDUINO DSP. Digital filters for offset removal. The Atmega ADC (Arduino) has an input voltage range of 0 to Vcc and so when sampling an AC waveform the waveform needs to be biased at Vcc / 2.

Digital filters for offset removal

This translates to an offset in the digital domain of around 512. The waveform sampled in the digital domain will go down towards 0 and up towards 1024, centered around 512. To do the maths for real power, rms voltage and current calculations we need to first remove this offset and this can be done with a digital filter. There are two approaches: the high pass filter which allows the high frequency component through removing the bias; or the low pass filter to first find the bias and then once found subtract this bias from the signal. Let's start with the high pass filter. Digital high pass filter The floating point implementation looks like this: filtered_value = 0.996 × (last_filtered_value + sample - last_sample) Why 0.996?
