Hi,

We are trying to design a circuit in which input varies from 5 to 100V which will be further used in AND gate. Can anybody help providing the commercially available IC / any other solution? Thanking in anticipation.

A diode - resistor AND gate is one solution. Other solutions would require more details about the required output, if it is possible to attenuate the input signals before the AND gate etc.

A 20:1 resistive divider could reduce the 5V-100V to 0.25V to 5V, which standard CMOS logic gates operating from a 5V supply will interpret as logic low and logic high.

I interpreted the OP's statement as meaning that the input has a logic high that varies from 5V to 100V. I wonder which interpretation is correct.

True. My first guess was a 39k, 1/2W resistor to a 5.1V zener as if to measure 0, (5V-100V). Clarification, please, and there is no such thing as a commercially available AND gate IC that will survive 100 volts.

The problem is that what is the 5~100V used for, and come from?
If need the voltages to be a logical control signal, probably it need to use the resistors to dividing the voltages to the logical level as crutschow said, and use schmitt trigger IC as 74LS14, 74HC14, MC14584, etc, to changing the voltages level, and then connecting to AND gate.

Frankly I wouldn't worry about it until the OP posts back. Dollars to donuts OP will not be back.
