Why comparators and pins of unused operational amplifiers different?

Latest Updated:03/01/2007

Question:

The processing methods for the unused pins of unused operational amplifiers and comparators differ. What is the reason?

Answer:

The purpose in both cases is the same, i.e., to stabilize the operation of unused operational amplifiers and comparators and not to exert an influence on other operational amplifiers and comparators (within the same package).
There are differences between the stabilization methods. A voltage follower configuration that enables stabilization using negative feedback is recommended for operational amplifiers, while fixing the input voltage in order to achieve output stabilization is recommended for comparators.
