Ach, the equation giving the rising amplitude of a TWG with frequency should have been

1 + 4t sub d/T sub ideal

As the total delay time in a triangle-wave cycle, of 4*t sub d, becomes significant relative to the cycle period without any delay in it, or T sub ideal, the amplitude increases because once a peak is detected (which occurs twice in each cycle) the loop takes some time to shut off the on current source and turn the off source on, to reverse the slope of the waveform. The amount of time taken as overshoot must be "undone" going in the opposite direction until the waveform is back to where the peak should have been. And that is a total of 2*t sub d, where t sub d is the delay time. This happens for both peaks - hence the 4 multiplying t sub d in the equation.

Previously we looked at the electronics and sensors involved in data acquisition systems (DASs). Now we look at what to do with the raw ADC data once it is acquired.
This is a tutorial presentation of principles of instrumentation that is typically multi-channel, medium to high resolution (12 to 20 bits) and relatively slow - slower than oscilloscopes in sample rate
Continuing the chat from last time, we turn now to a circuit-related topic, that of current waveforms. The typical converter input waveform is shown with a static (dc) component and a ripple (ac) component
Semiconductor companies have now had fully-differential amplifiers in their product lines for a few years, though these amplifiers have been in leading-edge electronics for decades. These diff-amps are differential not only at their input but also at their output, doubling output range.
