There are 2 types of rectification: full-wave rectification that adds the signal below the baseline (usually negative) to the signal above the baseline (all positive) and half-wave rectification that deletes the signal below the baseline.
Our virtual instrument was also programmed to rectify the signal by applying full-wave rectification and DC offset correction (Figure 4C; see Material and methods).
This device performs full-wave rectification with high surge current capability.
