### Is this a high-pass filter?

I am not very sure about how to completely solve this question. I tried to calculate the equivalent impedance by C and R and got R/(1+jwRC). Then I calculated the transmittance by using the voltage ...

### Single capacitor for Powerline communication - AC coupling

First of all: I am not talking about traditional powerline communication (ethernet protocol etc) but about a very simple and primitive communication, like serial data transmission (https://en....

### How is dc restorer circuit used for PWM demodulation/detection?

In the Microelectronics Circuits textbook by Sedra & Smith, it is said that: As an application, consider a pulse signal being transmitted through a capacitively coupled or ac-coupled system. ...

### Why is the cutoff frequency of this highpass filter with formula different from LTspice?

I used this online tool to play around and design a Sallen-Key low pass filter with a cutoff frequency of 0.3Hz. When I now put the resulting values for R1, R2, C1 and C2 in the formula I get exactly ...

### How to calculate cutoff frequency for a high pass filter in DC biasing circuit

I would like to DC bias an AC signal using a voltage divider as shown in the following schematic. I realise the bias point would be subject to noise from the power rails, but that is not a concern for ...

### How to remove DC offset (and make average DC value 0V) from ADS1261 square wave AC-excitation circuit

I am attempting to remove the DC offset from the 1 kHz, ± 2.5 V, AC square wave output pins of an ADS1261 (http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/ads1261.pdf). However, when measured on the oscilloscope (...

### how to design a low pass filter for square waveform

I have square wave signal of 100KHz with few high frequency ringing from 555 timer.when i tried to use a 100KHz first order rc low pass filter,i got a sawtooth waveform because the 100KHz square will ...

### Will a resistor connected in parallel with a high-pass filter affect the filter cut-off freq?

I have a circuit that adds a DC offset to an AC signal. From what I know, C1 and R2 form a high-pass filter. Since the input signal frequency is 50Hz, I would like to reduce the cut-off frequency of ...

### PMOS unexpectedly passing current with capacitor on drain

I am designing a circuit to get a pulse when a switch opens. When the voltage source V1 is connected, the switch SW1 starts closed. I want Vout to briefly go high when SW1 opens. The circuit I ...
