Pop noise on analog output

Go to solution Solved by attila,



When start and stop Analog Discovery 2, a pop noise on analog output.
It will appear few ms from FDwfDeviceOpen or FDwfDeviceClose function call.
Since the noise voltage is + 3/-1.5V, it will exceed 1Vpp of the maximum absolute rating of the connected instrument.
How can I reduce pop noise?

This noise is caused by DAC startup, output buffer positive and negative supply asymmetric charge/discharge.

Use external divider or buffer circuit to reduce or remove this noise.

Hi Tetus,

I have a similar issue with this 'pop' damaging external circuitry. One solution is to use an opamp or buffer with a positive enable pin in between the AnalogDiscovery and your other components. You can then use the digital IO on the AnalogDiscovery to enable the opamp after this 'pop' has occurred. You can also disable the opamp before turning off the analog channels. However, this same pop occurs when the USB cable is disconnected from the AnalogDiscovery, so you will have to ensure that this cannot happen.
