I think the circuit attached below is a peak detector because of the diode, resistor and capacitor at the op-amp's output. What I don't understand is the diodes on the input side. The input signal swings positive and negative. In the positive cycle, the signal goes through D2; what's the purpose of R2?
In the negative cycle the signal goes through D1 and R1. R3, C1, and R1 forms a low-pass filter network, right? Correct me if I'm wrong. I would appreciate any additional detail as to the operation of this circuit.
