Hi there, I need some help.

I have a sample and hold circuit comprising a TL071 opamp and capacitors. My output turns out to be a pulse whose mark(high) is 9v( Vsupply to opamp is 9V).

How do I convert the pulse to a 5V mark(high pulse). Or better still is it posible to have a response such that when the pulse is running the circuit reads high and when the pulse stops it goes low.

I just want to know if there is a method of detecting a pulse stream that is not too complex and if you can modify it to any voltage level say TTL.

Hoping to hear from you all.

Thanks.

You can use 1kΩ resistor + 4.7V zener diode to limit the level and a CMOS Schmitt Trigger gate(s) (74HCT14, for example) to sharpen the edges and produce nice TTL/CMOS output ..

Regards,
IanP
