A Window-Comparator is a circuit configuration, usually consisting of a pair of voltage comparators (inverting and non-inverting), in which the output indicates whether an input signal is within the voltage range bounded by two different thresholds. One which triggers an op-amp comparator on detection of some upper voltage threshold, V<sub>REF(HIGH)</sub> and one which triggers an op-amp comparator on detection of a lower voltage threshold level, V<sub>REF(LOW)</sub>. The voltage levels between these two upper and lower reference voltages is called the “window”. | A Window-Comparator is a circuit configuration, usually consisting of a pair of voltage comparators (inverting and non-inverting), in which the output indicates whether an input signal is within the voltage range bounded by two different thresholds.

The hysteresis current is readily calculated. For example, for 2 degrees of hysteresis, I<sub>VREF</sub> = 17 μA. Next, the set point voltages, V<sub>SETHIGH</sub> and V<sub>SETLOW</sub>, are determined using the VPTAT scale factor of 5 mV/K = 5 mV/(°C + 273.15), which is 1.49 V for 25°C. Then, calculate the divider resistors, based on those set points. The equations used to calculate the resistors are: | The hysteresis current is readily calculated.

+ | | ||

+ | Since VREF = 2.5 V, with a reference load resistance of 357 kΩ or greater (output current 7 μA or less), the temperature setpoint hysteresis is zero degrees. Larger values of load resistance only decrease the output current below 7 μA and have no effect on the operation of the device. The amount of hysteresis is determined by selecting a value of load resistance for VREF. | ||
