Notch filter autotunes for audio applications
21.09.2017 · Circuits
Tracking notch filters find use in harmonic-distortion analyzers; they also can remove heterodyne noise from ham-radio systems. A conventional tracking switched-capacitor notch filter relies on a bandpass filter, a voltage-to-frequency converter, and a notch filter to track the incoming signal and remove undesired tones...

Obtain a lower dc voltage from a higher voltage power supply
18.09.2017 · Circuits
You can use the circuit to obtain a low regulated voltage, such as 5 V dc, from a higher voltage, rectified, sinusoidal voltage source without resorting to an electrically noisy dc/dc converter or wasting watts in a dropping resistor. This application requires a regulated 5 V-dc source, but a transformer supplies 18 V rms to a full-wave bridge rectifier...
