Abstract : This patent describes a circuit for detecting peaks in a time-variant signal, comprising a track-hold unit having a first mode for tracking the time-variant signal, and a second mode for storing instantaneous peak values. The track-hold unit is controlled by a comparator which samples the time-variant signal and stored peak; logic output of the comparator is applied to the track-hold unit to direct it into its first or second modes in accordance with the relative values of the sampled signals.
