a. Use of LM 311 as precision comparator and window detector. b. Triangular wave generator using 741 IC and LM 301 Theory: The 311 comparator is an IC that has been designed and optimized for superior performance in voltage-level detector applications. A comparator should be fast. The 311 is much faster than the 741. The 311 is an excellent choice for a comparator because of its versatility. Its output is designed not to bounce between V sat , but can be changed quite easily. Here voltage may vary between levels of +15 V and 15V, but VO is restrained between +5V and 0V, which are typical digital signal levels. Thus, 311 can be used for converting analog voltage levels to digital voltage levels. Exp. 2.1: Use of LM 311 as a precision comparator and window detector. Objective: The objective of this experiment is to use LM 311 as a zero crossing detector and window detector. Equipments required: 1. Power supply 2. Signal generator 3. Resistors 100 K , 1 K , 500 4. Oscilloscope 5. LM 311 (2)
