Single Supply Absolute Value Amplifier (2)

The rail- to- rail input and output characteristics of these CMOS op amps allow them to swing very close to their supply rails–+5V and ground. By forcing U1 to operate as an inverting amplifier when the input voltage is negative (by the “ideal clamp” circuit of U2 and D1) and allowing it to operate as a normal noninverting amplifier when the input voltage is positive, op amp U1 acts like a perfect rectifier. This design can be biased above ground, handy in single supply circuits referenced to V+/2. This absolute value amplifier has unity gain an input range of within a few mV of -5V to +5V. For a faster amplifier, use an OPA354 for U1 & U2 and a small Schottky diode for D1. The dual amplifier versions, OPA2364 or OPA2354 can also be used. (Circuit is created by David Jones & Neil P.

Single-Supply Bipolar-Input Differential Output Amplifier

The rail- to- rail input and output characteristics of these CMOS op amps allow them to swing very close to their supply rails– +5V and ground.
By using both an inverting and noninverting amplifier output to swing only positive due to their not being capable of swinging below ground (0V), the op amps each act like a perfect rectifier. Due to its unique R-R input topology, the OPA364 exhibits very high linearity over its entire common- mode input voltage range. This absolute- value amplifier has a gain of 1V/V and has an input range of within a few mV of -5V to +5V. (Circuit is created by Neil P. Albaugh,  TI- Tucson)
