Comparator Module for Analog Paradigm Model-1 computer.
The CMP4-module contains four comparators which yield a logical output signal which is high when the sum of both analog inputs is larger than zero. Otherwise the output is low.
Each comparator has a dedicated electronic SPDT switch with two analog inputs and one analog output. If the control input jack of such a switch remains unpatched, it is automatically connected to its corresponding comparator. By patching a control signal to an input this internal connection is split and the switch can be controlled externally. Thus only a single patch cable is necessary to control two switches by the output of one comparator.
