: Can anyone please help me with (I hope) a simple problem.
: I have a temperature monitoring device with 1.5v battery supply. It outputs
: logic levels of 0v (low) and 1.5v (high).
: I want to connect this to a CMOS circuit I'm constructing running of 0v-12v
: supply (on a PC). The CMOS circuit is a simple logic one using 4001 type
: transistors etc.
: I know I need some kind of voltage shifter to up the high level to at
: least 5v
: or so. I'm considering using single-supply op-amp as a voltage comparator.
: Can anyone suggest a simple way of doing this? Any help, references, sources
: would be very much appreciated.
Generate a voltage of about 0.75 Volt and feed it to the negative input of
comparators. Feed the 1.5 Volt input signal to the positive input and use
the CMOS supply also as supply for the comparators. If you need fast signal
translation, use Push/Pull Comparators.
