I want to use this LM311 comparator with a single supply. But these are pins called balance and strobe which confuses me. What are these for?
In a forum I read someone suggests pin 5 and pin 6 shorted for single supply operation. Should I also ground them? But the data-sheet says: "Do not connect strobe pin directly to ground, because the output is turned off whenever current is pulled from the strobe pin"
These pins should not be kept floating, but how should they be connected in case of single supply operation as a comparator or schmit trigger?
