Hey Everyone,

I need to be able to sample an AC voltage and have a chip determine the peak value from this AC voltage, Say it runs at 40hZ for example.
What is a good IC chip that can read in the AC voltage and output the results to an op-amp for control? I need a chip that can stand at least 8 volts AC. One that ships fast and easy preferably.

You normally build a peak detector with an op amp or two and a capacitor. Just google peak detector and select images, there are lots to chose from.
