A Grounded Capacitor Differentiator Using Current Feedback Amplifier
ABSTRACT

A new non-inverting RC active differentiator network base on a current feedback amplifier and using a grounded capacitor is described. Small time constant can be achieved by adjusting a single grounded resistor. Because the output impedance of the CFA is very low, the output terminal of the proposed circuit can be directly connected to the next stage. Experimental results that confirm theoretical analysis are presented.
