The LM13700 series consists of two current-controlled transconductance amplifiers, each with differential inputs and a push-pull output. The two amplifiers share common supplies but otherwise operate independently. Linearizing diodes are provided at the inputs to reduce distortion and allow higher input levels. The result is a 10-dB signal-to-noise improvement referenced to 0.5 percent THD. High impedance buffers are provided which are especially designed to complement the dynamic range of the amplifiers. The output buffers of the LM13700 differ from those of the LM13600 in that their input bias currents (and thus their output DC levels) are independent of IABC. This may result in performance superior to that of the LM13600 in audio applications.

CIRCUIT060013 Inverting amplifier with T-network feedback circuit

This design inverts the input signal, VIN, and applies a signal gain of 1000 V/V or 60 dB. The inverting amplifier with T-feedback network can be used to obtain a high gain without a small value for R4 or very large values for the feedback resistors.

CIRCUIT060015 Adjustable reference voltage circuit

This circuit combines an inverting and non-inverting amplifier to make a reference voltage adjustable from the negative of the input voltage up to the input voltage. Gain can be added to increase the maximum negative reference level.

CIRCUIT060074 High-side current sensing with comparator circuit

This high-side, current sensing solution uses one comparator with a rail-to-rail input common mode range to create an over-current alert (OC-Alert) signal at the comparator output (COMP OUT) if the load current rises above 1 A. The OC-Alert signal in this implementation is active low. So when the (...)
