Texas Instruments TLV170x MicroPower Comparators are a family of devices that offers a wide supply range, rail-to-rail inputs, low quiescent current, and low propagation delay. All these features come in industry-standard, extremely-small packages, making these devices the best general-purpose comparators available. The open collector output offers the advantage of allowing the output to be pulled to any voltage rail up to +36V above the negative power supply, regardless of the TLV170x supply voltage. These devices are available in single (TLV1701), dual (TLV1702), and quad (TLV1704) channel versions. Low input offset voltage, low input bias currents, low supply current, and open-collector configuration make the TLV170x family flexible enough to handle almost any application, from simple voltage detection to driving a single relay.
