Modified:21:42, 22 October 2013

This is a modified version of a really simple Ring Modulator. It works very similar to a multiplier circuit in that the output will be the product of the two input SigA and SigB.
The Op-amp is wired as an inverting amplifier in order to buffer the signal and provide some gain.


The red trace shows the output of the following signals:

40Hz sine @1v p-p (blue)

500Hz sine @1v p-p

Although this seems to work well in simulation, I have yet to try it out. The transformers I have purchased are shown left and are PCB mount Audio Isolation transformer with 1:1 ratio and split windings. These are available from Rapid Electronics but are not cheap!
