A simple technique to produce a linear signal from a displacement transducer, linear variable differential transformer (LVDT), is introduced in this paper. The two-quadrant divider is used to precede the ratio of a different and sum of the two winding signals from the LVDT instead of a four-quadrant divider of a recent approach. The two- quadrant divider is(More)
This article presents a current signal sample-and-hold (S/H) circuit using 0.5 mum CMOS technology.
