Single-supply operation of the AD736
In dual-supply operation, the output (pin 6) of the AD736 is at 0 V, that is, halfway between the supply lines. But in single-supply operation, the output is at 1/2 VCC. By adding a single-supply op amp as a differential amplifier, however, a true ‘O V out for o V’ single-supply circuit with a ground-referenced output as shown in the diagram.
