Single-supply, high-input voltage, full-wave rectifier circuit



This single-supply precision full-wave rectifier is optimized for high-input voltages. When Vi > 0 V, D1 is reverse biased and the top part of the circuit, U1, is activated resulting in a circuit with a gain of 1 V/V. When Vi < 0 V, D1 is forward biased and the bottom part of the circuit, U2, is activated resulting in an inverting amplifier circuit with a gain of –1 V/V.
  • Input: Vi = 9 V
  • Output: Vo = 4.5 V
  • Frequency: f_max = 50 kHz
  • Supply:
    • Vcc = 5 V
    • Vee = 0 V
