trigger circuit

trigger circuit

[′trig·ər ‚sər·kət]
(electronics)
A circuit or network in which the output changes abruptly with an infinitesimal change in input at a predetermined operating point. Also known as trigger.
A circuit in which an action is initiated by an input pulse, as in a radar modulator.

Shown schematically in Figure 1, key components of the electrical crimp consolidation implementation include Model G II Terminating Machine (press) [7] and applicator, a condenser bank, and a trigger circuit. The condenser bank comprises of an array of eight capacitors ranging from l00[mu]F through 1800[mu]F that are charged through a current-limited voltage source for independent adjustment of discharge energy (3.25-13J) and charging potential (60-180V).
The Schmitt Trigger circuit has been widely used in the input buffers to increase noise immunity.
Several patents have been filed that describe oscillators in which the phase can be instantaneously altered in response to a control signal, such as the output from a trigger circuit.
The Chinese authorities' seemingly capricious decision last week to trigger circuit breakers, and then to rapidly remove them, added to the chaos in the country's stock exchanges and intensified unease about the world's second- largest economy and its commitment to free markets.
The benefits relative to the testing efforts of ATPG become worse if the input nodes for the HT's trigger circuit are spread out throughout the system.
Schmitt Trigger Circuit. Consider the Schmitt trigger circuit of Figure 8(a), where the bipolar transistors are modelled using the simplified Ebers-Moll (see Figure 8(b)) model of NPN transistors as depicted in Figure 8(c).
