The CGS596 Triple Comparator consists of three independent, but identical, functions which are useful in the production of square waves and variable pulse
waves. The Comparator reference level can be a time-varying control voltage, a
complex audio signal, or a fixed preset voltage. Additionally, the comparators are
useful for level detection and for logic decisions based on amplitude.
also contains a single, non-adjustable, Schmitt trigger. The output of the Schmitt
trigger will rise to about 5 volts when the input falls below approximately 0.6
volts and will fall to approximately 0 volts when the input rises over
approximately 4.3 volts.
