analog comparator

analog comparator

[′an·əl‚äg kəm′par·əd·ər]
(electronics)
A comparator that checks digital values to determine whether they are within predetermined upper and lower limits.
A comparator that produces high and low digital output signals when the sum of two analog voltages is positive and negative, respectively.
