30) Op-Amps vs. Comparators

I’ve been playing around with comparators lately; More specifically I’ve been using op-amps as a comparator. I ran into a little bit of trouble that I hadn’t encountered before. I don’t go into all of the weird things that happen in using an op amp from the early 70’s, but we do look at headroom and slew rate limitations. I also build up a parking sensor for my garage using a window comparator. Entire project made using components funded by Patreon patrons. Thanks all!
