Application of avalanche generators in laboratory measurements
Recent technology trends have emphasized low power, single supply operation. The LT1016, although capable of such operation, does not include ground in its input range. As such, it must be biased into its operating common mode range for practical single supply use. A new device, the LT1394, maintains the speed and application civility of its predecessor while including ground in its input operating range. Additionally, the new comparator is faster and pulls significantly lower operating current than the LT1016.
