The students will integrate all the knowledge gained so far in theory and computer software applications through the actual realization in the form of a mini project.
TITLE Schmitt trigger switch
Design and evaluate:
I. An inverting Schmitt trigger so that VUTP = – 8V and VLTP = – 4V. Assume Vsat = ± 12 V.
II. A noninverting Schmitt trigger so that VUTP = 8V and VLTP = 4V. Assume Vsat = ± 12 V.
In electronics system, a Schmitt trigger is a comparator circuit with hysteresis positive feedback to the non-inverting input differential amplifier. It is active circuit that converts an analog input signal to a digital output signal. The circuit is named a “trigger” because the output retains its value until the input changes sufficiently to trigger a change. In the non-inverting, when the input is higher than a chosen threshold, the output is high. When the input is lower threshold the output is low, and when the input between two levels the output remain the same value. This threshold action called hysteresis. There is close relation between the two circuits: a Schmitt trigger can converted into a latch and vice versa.
Schmitt trigger devices are used in signal conditioning applications to remove noise from signals used in digital circuits. They are also used in closed loop negative feedback configurations to implement relaxation oscillators, used in function generators and switching power supplies.

The resistors R1 and R2 form a parallel voltage summer and it adds a part of the output voltage to the input voltage during and after switching that occurs when the resulting voltage is near ground. This parallel positive feedback create hysteresis that is controlled between the resistances of R1 and R2. The output is single-ended and produces voltage to ground so the circuit does not need an amplifier. Since conventional op-amps have different input, the inverting input is grounded to make the reference point zero volts.
If the Schmitt trigger in the high state, the output be at the positive power supply (+VS). The output voltage V+ of the resistive summer can be found by applying the superposition theorem:
