Precision voltage-to-frequency converter

Posted on Jul 11, 2012

In this circuit, integration is performed by using a conventional operational amplifier and feedback capacitor, CF. When the integrator's output crosses the nominal threshold level at pin 6 of the LM131, the timing cycle is initiated. The average current fed into the op amp's summing point (pin 2) is (1.1 RtCt) which is perfectly balanced with - V^/R^. In this circuit, the voltage offset of the LM131 input comparator does not affect the offset or accuracy of the V-to-F converter as it does in the stand-alone V-to-F converter, nor does the LM131 bias current or offset current.

Instead, the offset voltage and offset current of the operational amplifier are the only limits on how small the signal can be accurately converted.
