CISSOID in Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium, is introducing the NILE low-power, high-temperature, 8-bit comparator that operates in temperatures from -55 to 225 degrees Celsius for signal processing and signal conditioning in sensor interfaces designed into aeronautics and other high-temperature electronics applications.
NILE compares an analog input against an 8-bit resolution portion of the 5-volt reference voltage, with a programmable threshold. It is based on an R-2R network and features a strictly monotonic characteristic over the whole temperature range. NILE is a continuous time device and provides a valid output within 2.6 microseconds for a one-half LSB (10-microvolt) comparator overdrive. It requires a 5-volt supply and an external 5-volt reference. Several input ranges are also available, from -15 volts to 10 volts.
