Comparator

A comparator takes two input signals and produces a positive output voltage if the first signal is greater than the second.

The second input can receive a signal from a connected module or be set to a constant reference.

Parameters

reference_voltage

Options
compare_to $$\in \{$$ GROUND $$,$$ SECOND_INPUT $$,$$ VARIABLE_REFERENCE $$\}$$

input_phase $$\in \{$$ PHASE1 $$,$$ PHASE2 $$\}$$

output_sync $$\in \{$$ SYNC_DISABLED $$,$$ SYNC_TO_PHASE1 $$,$$ SYNC_TO_PHASE2 $$\}$$

sync_clock_edge $$\in \{$$ RISING_EDGE $$,$$ FALLING_EDGE $$\}$$

Transfer Function

$$V_{out} = \begin{cases} +2V & \text{if \> V_+ > V_-} \\ -2V & \text{if \> V_+ < V_-} \\ \end{cases}$$
