Voltage comparators implemented with GaAs/ (GaAl)As heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBT's) were examined for dynamic hysteresis effects. Heating effects were identified as the major source of hysteresis. An approximate model is proposed to explain the measured data. Suggestions for analog-to-digital converter design are discussed.
