Summing Differentiator

Summing Differentiator:

Similar to the summing integrator, Summing Differentiator can be obtained using the basic differentiator circuit. It can be obtained by applying more than one input to the basic differentiator as shown in the Fig. 2.50.

The node B is grounded, hence potential of A is also zero. So VA = 0. Hence we can write the expressions for the various currents as,

Summing Differentiator

Applying at node A,

The expression shows that the output is the sum of the differentiations of the two inputs. Hence the circuit is called as summing differentiators.

The resistance R1 is introduced to provide closed loop stability at high frequency and to reduce the high frequency noise.
