Title: Analog sampling processor

Abstract: An analog sampling processor includes an analog sampling filter, a sample amplitude comparison circuit, a switch and switch control circuitry. The analog sampling filter filters a filter input signal to produce a filtered signal. The sample amplitude comparison circuit compares amplitude of the input signal and the filtered signal to produce a comparator signal. The switch samples a processor input signal to produce a sampled signal. The switch control circuitry receives the comparator signal and input from a sampling control signal. The switch control circuitry combines the comparator signal from the sampling control signal to generate a control signal that controls the sampling characteristics of the switch.
