    Does anyone know what the Vp-p means regarding the specs of a piezo buzzer? Like this one, that states a maximum 30Vp-p as its voltage input. (Perhaps it means that when a square wave is applied to the piezo to make it buzz a maximum of 30V per-pulse is allowable?)

    volts peak to peak, pretty much self explanitory.

    Thanks... I did google it before posting this question, and I couldn't find a thing. I guess everyone assumes we all know the meaning of obvious stuff like this... until everyone eventually forgets it... the history of language is filled with examples like that...
    Thanks again.

    peak to peak voltage on square waves is the same as the pulse voltage, if you dont have any switching transients (spikes) 25 volt pulses = 25 volt p to p. sine wave or other waveforms get more complex.
