The traditional logarithmic amplifier circuit is om394 in National Appnote This circuit uses the difference of two transistor currents to generate the log of the input over a pretty wide range.

Welcome to the ECE Store

The well-matched transistor pair Q1a and Q1b are halves of the LM “supermatch” transistor pair. But National discontinued this part last year with no clear replacement.

I can use LM array, l3m94 the specs are far worse. There are plenty of arrays of ‘ or ‘ pm394, but there is no mention of matching in the datasheet. The transistors might be on separate dies for all Daatasheet know. TI still sells some Burr Brown log amps but they are expensive. It seems that this is not recommended for new designs but the replacement is the MAT How about the LS from Linear Systems?


The chip has almost the same name: The specs are identical to the original. You can find them here But the plant does not sell them directly.

You have to find the dealer in Moscow can find an email or phone in case someone need it. I had this idea for a quick and dirty log amp. If you modulated the reference voltage by 3dB, the output would probably average to about the right value. That would more-or-less be an interpolation between 3dB values.

This is probably not the way to go unless there is a need for an LED bargraph in the circuit already. This circuit looks to be a log amplifier using two op-amps, two transistors, a few passives and a current source.

However, I’m not sure how suitable it is for your application. Intersil makes a number of transistor arrays some are certainly single die and well matched.

TI has a bunch of chips that implement log amps. I don’t know what the definitive chip is but there are many chips that implement the whole circuit. Devices equivalent to the LM are now being made by another company: Thank you for your interest in this question.

Datwsheet can I cheaply make a logarithm? MikeJ-UK 5, 11 MAT12 is still in production, but octopart. So no cheaper than the LOG Chris Johnson 7 That’s an interesting forum thread, especially the story about MAT Two LMs can be stacked to get 60 dB range.

I just get the default circuit. Especially in this circuit, which lives and dies by transistor matching, the simulator is going to give a very optimistic performance estimate. Those “transistors” are identical.

I tried adjusting the Hfe of the transistors and unless it was something like it kept a very clean log output. I’m not sure to what extent other parameters would matter, though. Joseph Perkins 1 1.

TI still lists the part in their catalog, but designates it as obsolete. There is no commitment that if you design it in to your circuit, you will be able to purchase it later.

TI isn’t making the part at all as far as I can tell.

They are just listing the National Semi datasheet as dtasheet courtesy since they bought National. As usual, Maxim parts do not exist.

Octopart is not comprehensive. For example, does not search Maxim-Direct, i. Maxim direct is saying 15 weeks lead time for single parts. So Maxim doesn’t have any either. I’d rather the LOG and skip the Maxim hassle. Roman has mentioned that component.
