    I was looking at this circuit

    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    there is recurring symbol of arrow that says V/2 and i dont know what it means. I thought it might be the power supply to each op amp but that surely just comes from where he put "+V" i never have come accross this symbol before.

    Look at R5 and R6 they are a voltage divider. V/2 is V+ voltage divided by 2. It is used as a reference for the + side of the opamp.

    The Junction at R5,6,7 is an output. Everything labeled V/2 are tied together.
