This circuit is designed to detect a low light level at the sensor, amplify the signal, and provide a TTLlevet output. When the optical sensor detects low-levellight, on condition, its output is small and must be amplified. An amp with very low input bias current and high input resistance must be used to detect the on condition. When sensor TIIA06 is in the on condition, its output is assumed to be 250 nA (allowing a safety margin).

This results in a 250-m V signal being applied to the noninverting input of amplifier OP-07. Because of the circuit configuration, the OP-07 provides a gain of 100 and its output is in positive saturation. The OP-07 output level is applied to a loading network that provides the basic TTL level.
