Thus the comparator converts an analog voltage (one that can take on an infinite number of values) into a digital one (high or low, 1 or 0, on or off). A comparator is a simple form of an analog ­to ­digital converter (ADC). 3.a (5 points) Set ­up • Construct the circuit of figure P3 ­1. • Adjust the 100 KΩ pot to vary V ­. • Adjust the 10 KΩ pot to vary vin.
