Signal Differentiation and Integration

Good explanation about Differentiation "The output wave of a DIFFERENTIATOR CIRCUIT is ideally a graph of the rate of change of the voltage at its input." Fig.8.4.1 The Differentiator Circuit Fig 8.4.2 Differentiation. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And Integration "The shape of the input wave of an integrator circuit in this case will be a graph of the rate of change of the output wave " "The low pass filter circuit is therefore called an integrator only when: a. The input wave is a square wave. b. The periodic time(T) of the input wave is much shorter than the circuit time constant(CR) i.e.(T<=CR)." Fig. 8.5.1 The Integrator (also low-pass filter) Circuit. Fig. 8.5.2 Integrator Action


Duty cycle vs frequency

Good explanation is here. See the image: Frequency = 1 / Tcycle and Hertz is the unit of frequency. It gives the number of cycles in one second. Duty cycle = Thigh / Tcycle. It gives fraction of one cycle for which the signal is high.
