PSoC 1 SC Block Applications - Precision Full Wave Rectifier

I made a video showing how a precision full wave rectifier may be created in PSoC 1 by configuring a Switched Capacitor block as a modulator.

Execercise to the User:

  1. Set the ASign parameter of the SCBlock to "Positive" and observe the result
  2. Set the ACap value to 8, 24 and 31 and observe the result.
  3. Set the Polarity of the Comparator to Negative and observe the result.

For more details about Switched Capacitor blocks, refer below application note.

I noticed the input sinusoid was set to 100Hz. What is the upper limit frequency for this project?
