Default testing a single ended or differential topology

This is probabily a doomed question but....

the majority of the signal generators out are single ended...which means that they only have one output.

speaking of balance circuitry......if you have a signal generator with the above characteristics......it is true that it's possible to shoten the in(-) and evaluate the topology just as a single ended one.....

But.... what if i would like to have an input differential signal test and test the entire topolgy?


Is it convenient to transform somehow the signal into a differential version?

How do you guys generally do to test , let's say, a differential preamplifier or power amp?

Thanks in advance for the attention.

Simplest solution is to get yourself a DRV134 chip and 4 9V-batteries. Within half an hour of soldering, you have a balanced driver for single ended signals.

Not for listening music, but good enough for test signals.

Oh really?

Do you have, by chance a simple schematic ...an application... for such as part to make it run as a differential signal generator (sine, sqaure triangolar wave)?

I appreciate very much your suggestion.

Just Google and download the datasheet. There is a standard circuit.

I presume you have a normal, ground referenced signal generator in the first place.

ah ok...now it's clear....

so normal single end signal generator and then using this component to have a differential output signal.

Thanks.... i'll download the datasheet.

Schuro in Kassel(D) undoubtedly offers it, check their online pages.
or RS-Components Italy, for a few euros more.
(instead of the TI DRV134 you could look for AD SSM2142)
