LM358: LM358 second source question

Part Number: LM358
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: , LM393

Hi Sir,

 I have an previous post here:

  And here's response from my customer:

1. Input signal is 3.38V

2. Sypply voltage is 3.42V

3. Removing pull up voltage (R426) and short D20 has poor result.

So we have to suggest LM358B to customer?

  • Hey Gary,

    Using the device at 3.42V limits your output swing when using the device as an amplifier. LM358 can output 1.5V from the positive rail. Adding the pull-up resistor can let the output turn off completely and the output voltage will go higher.

    LM358B has a higher slew rate and will function more like the competitor device, but in both cases these are not great designs. Please note that the output has a stronger constant current sink pull-down, so you may have to make the pull up resistor R426 smaller.

    Is there a reason the customer is not using a comparator for this application (such as the LM393)?


  • Hi Jerry,

     Customer just want to find second source. Will let customer know our suggestion. Thanks.
