Video Circuit Clamps under All Conditions: 4/23/98 EDN-Design Ideas / Many video-circuit Clamps operate well in the presence of a composite-video signal but cannot achieve a Clamp level with signals other than composite video or in the absence of an input signal. This circuit, developed for the ADC1175 (a popular and inexpensive, high-performance, 8-bit, 20M-sample/sec ADC), provides the normal back-porch Clamp function to the input of the ADC in the presence of a composite-video signal. The circuit further ensures that the voltage presented to the ADC is within its correct operating range in the absence of an input signal and forces any signal other than composite video to be within the ADCs input common-mode range.Video Circuits Collection: Linear Technology Application Note #57 / January1994 /includes Video transmission over UTP
