CD40106BPWR Description

The CD40106B chip includes six Schmitt-Trigger inputs in its construction. Each circuit can be considered an inverter that takes in Schmitt-Trigger input. The trigger can be pulled at various places to switch between positive and negative-going signals. The term “hysteresis voltage” refers to the disparity that exists between the voltages that are applied in a positive direction (VP) and those that are applied in a negative direction (VN) (VH). Standard packaging and ceramic packaging (J) for the CD40106B device can be purchased separately (D, N, NS, PW). The ambient temperature range supported by all CD40106B devices is from –55 degrees Celsius to +125 degrees Celsius.

Detailed Description


The CD40106B gadget has six separate inverters, all of which have Schmitt trigger inputs. They carry out the Boolean function Y = A, which belongs to the positive logic category. Inputs that use the Schmitt-Trigger technique are intended to offer the greatest possible contrast between positive and negative switching thresholds. This makes it possible for the inputs to be noisy or slow, normally leading to issues such as oscillation or high current consumption.

Feature Description

The CD40106B has symmetrical output characteristics that are specified, and its operating voltage range is broad, going from 3 V to 18 V. When tested at 20 V, its quiescent current is 20 A. The transition times of these devices are tTLH = tTHL = 50 ns (typical) when operating at 10 V. The temperature range for normal operation is between –55 and +125 degrees Celsius. On this device, the Schmitt trigger inputs will accept input signals that are either sluggish or noisy.

Power Supply Recommendations

The power supply’s voltage might be between the lowest and maximum supply voltage ratings specified in the Recommended Operating Conditions. The VCC terminal needs to be equipped with a reliable bypass capacitor to avoid power disturbances. It is advised that a capacitor with 0.1 microfarads of capacitance be used on the VCC terminal. For optimal results, the capacitor should be positioned as close to the pin as is physically practicable.


Layout Guidelines

When using devices that use several bits of logic, inputs must never be allowed to float. In many applications, functionalities or portions of functions of digital logic devices are not being utilized. This can occur, for instance, when only two of the three inputs of a triple-input AND gate are being used or when only three of the four buffer gates are being utilized. Because the undefined voltages at the outside connections can lead to undefined operating states, it is imperative that inputs of this kind are not disconnected.

To prevent the inputs of digital logic devices from floating, all unused inputs must be connected to either a high or low bias. The device’s function determines the logic level applied to any unused input. The level of logic that must be applied can be any level. In most cases, they are connected to GND or VCC, whatever makes more logical sense or can be reached more easily. In most cases, floating outputs are acceptable; however, this is not the case when the component in question is a transceiver.

What is a Schmitt trigger?

A Schmitt trigger is a comparator circuit with hysteresis implemented in electronics by applying positive feedback to the noninverting input of a differential amplifier or comparator. It is an active circuit that converts the analog signal fed into it into an output digital signal. The circuit is called a trigger. The output will keep its value until the input varies sufficiently to cause the output to change. In the non-inverting mode, the output will be high whenever the input value is greater than the threshold that has been selected.

The output will be low when the input falls below a separate, lower threshold that has been established. However, the output will maintain its value when the input is between these two levels. This dual threshold action is termed hysteresis, which suggests that the Schmitt trigger can act as a bistable multivibrator and has memory (latch or flip-flop). A Schmitt trigger can be transformed into a latch, Also, a latch can be made into a Schmitt trigger. There is a strong connection between the two types of circuits.

Schmitt trigger devices are usually employed in signal conditioning applications to remove noise from signals used in digital circuits, notably mechanical contact bounce in switches. This is the case since mechanical contact bounce is a common source of signal degradation. Function generators and switching power supply require relaxation oscillators, which are implemented using these components in closed-loop negative feedback setups.

How does a Schmitt Trigger work?

The Schmitt trigger generates accurate results regardless of the quality of the input signal. It

uses two different threshold voltages, Upper threshold voltage is the first (VUT), while the second is the lower threshold voltage (VLT).

The Schmitt trigger’s output will stay low if the input signal is below the VUT threshold. When the input signal level reaches VUT, the Schmitt trigger’s output signal will remain high until it falls below the level of VLT. This will happen once the input signal has crossed the VUT limit.


Utilizing the inverted Schmitt trigger that Texas Instruments CD40106BPWR provides, one can convert analog impulses into digital signals. This is the pinnacle of power management because it features a Schmitt trigger output. This inverting Schmitt trigger has an operational temperature range that goes as low as -55 degrees Celsius and as high as 125 degrees Celsius. This item will be packaged on a tape and reel for shipment so it can be mounted quickly and safely delivered to its destination. This device has an operational supply voltage that is often anywhere in the range of 3.3 V, 5 V, 9 V, 12 V, or 15 V. Its highest operational supply voltage is 18 V, while its minimum operating supply voltage is 3 V.
