Clipping Detection


The clipping detection module can be used to identify whether there is a clipping in a particular wave form. It indicates the signal reaching the onset of its maximum permitted peak-to-peak voltage value before an overload is occurring. This will help in preventing severe, audible distortion to be generated through the audio signal chain.
