### Magnetic field strength and flux density from hysteresis curve

I am trying to measure the magnetic hysteresis curve of a toroidal nanocrystalline ferromagnetic transformer core made of Nanoperm (datasheet linked) using the following circuit. Each of the windings ...

### Hysteresis calculation for “open-collector output comparator” with a pull-up resistor

Standard comparators such as LM2903 and LM311 have open collector outputs. I see many times the output of these comparators are tied to Vcc by a pull-up resistor (e.g. in a Schmitt trigger case). ...

### Adding hysteresis to MOSFET used as a switch

I have a low-voltage detection circuit which I use to trigger one of two LEDs (green, and red) that is powered off of a +9V battery cell. As the battery discharges, its output voltage decreases, until ...

### what is “input hysteresis”?

I'm looking at a datasheet for a digital circuit and it specifies that the typical input hysteresis is 100 mV. What does this mean exactly?

### Comparator with hysteresis equations

I'm trying to be sure I'm computing the values for this circuit right. Here's an example of the circuit I'm trying to build (it's going in a 12 V DC system, so I filled that in already). I have ...

### Why does hysteretic current-mode control have variable switching frequency?

This figure below is from Raymond B. Ridley Dissertation "A New Small-Signal Model for Current-Mode Control". Here is an except from the document: The general implementation of hysteretic current-...

### How significant are hysteresis losses in iron wires with RF currents?

I understand that iron isn't a great choice of conductor for RF currents, as a wire dipole antenna for example. I understand there are several reasons, but I'm wondering specifically about one: ...
