Comparator Hystereses Calculator

See our other Electronics Calculators.

This calculator will compute the resistor ratio R1/R2 and reference voltage for given high and low threshold values for a hystereses curve, or the threshold values given the reference voltage and resistor ratio. 

The most commonly know comparator is the LM339 and it's various flavors. Rail to rail  op-amps can also be used as comparators.  The LMV324 is one such op-amp that is affordable, and works well as a comparator. 

The design equations for this calculator can be seen at: 

Comparator Hystereses Design Equations.

 

Input: (Note: Use minus sign "-" for negative voltages.)
Positive Supply Voltage: (V)
Negative Supply Voltage: (V)
Results:
Vth (High Threshold Voltage):
(V)
R2/R1 (Ratio of Resistors): 
Vtl (Low Threshold Voltage):
(V)
Vr (Reference Voltage): 
(V)
 

See our Votage Divider Calculator in order to compute R3 and R4 for a given Vr.
