Comparator doesn't work as expected? Answered
I'm having a strange problem with the LT1016
When the -input is at 0.630V, and the +input is at 0.555V, and the comparator is fed with 5V,
the outputs are because of some reason Q(inverted) = 2.10V and Q = 2.67V
2.67V for Q is just out of specifications (minimum High voltage of the pin should be 2.7V).
2.10V for Q(inverted) is not good as it should be less than 0.3V in it's low state.
The "latch enable" pin is grounded.
Both output pins are not connected.
Why doesn't Q(inverted) go to 0.3V and Q to 3V, as the datasheet suggests?
I tested this with another (also new) comparator; also an LT1016, and it behaves exactly the same.
1 V+ 5V
2 +IN 0.555V
3 -IN 0.630V
4 V- 0V
5 Latch Enable 0V
6 GND 0V
7 Qout 2.67V
8 Qout(inverted) 2.10V
