The CD40106B consists of six Schmitt-trigger circuits. Each circuit function as an inverter with Schmitt-trigger action on the input. The trigger switches at different points for positive- and negative-going signals. The difference between the positive-going voltage (VP) and the negative-going voltage (VN) is defined as hysteresis voltage (VH).
- Schmitt-trigger action with no external components.
- Hysteresis voltage (typ.) at 0.9 V at VDD = 5 V, 2.3 V at VDD = 10 V, and 3.5 V at VDD = 15 V.
- Noise immunity greater than 50%.
- No limit on input rise and fall times.
- Standardized, symmetrical output characteristics.
- 100% tested for quiescent current at 20 V.
- Maximum input current of 1 µA at 18 V over full package-temperature range; 100 nA at 18 V and 25°C.
- Low VDD to VSS current during slow input ramp.
- 5-V, 10-V, and 15-V parametric ratings.
- Wave and pulse shapers.
- High-noise-environment systems.
- Monostable multivibrators.
- Astable multivibrators.
