ON Semiconductor Expands High-Speed Operational Amplifier Portfolio with 500 MHz to 1.4 GHz Devices for High End Video Applications

New series of op amps deliver power and speed without sacrificing cost -making them ideal for cost-sensitive applications such as set-top boxes, security video cameras and video switching

PHOENIX, Ariz. -June 13, 2006 - Expanding its existing high-speed, low power operational amplifier portfolio, ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) today introduced seven new devices designed for the rapidly growing high definition video applications market. The op amps utilized new technologies to achieve the ultra low distortion performance levels required by professional video applications.

ON Semiconductor's NCS25xx family of high-speed op amps enable designers to achieve an unprecedented bandwidth, output power and noise performance, without having to make a cost tradeoff. These 500 megahertz (MHz) to 1.4 gigahertz (GHz) devices allow video designers to achieve 0.02 percent differential gain and 0.02-degree differential phase performance, while only consuming up to 12 milli-amps (mA) of current draw.

The NCS2510 and NCS2511 are current feedback devices of 1.4 GHz and 1.0 GHz respectively. The NCS2511 only consumes 7.5 mA of power versus the 12 mA of the NCS2510. Both devices are offered in a TSOP-5/SOT-23-5 package. The NCS2510 and NCS2511 are priced respectively at $1.40 and $1.25 per unit in 3,000 unit quantities.

The NCS2535 and NCS2540 are triple op amps, ideal for driving component video. The NCS2535 is a 1.4 GHz current feedback device with disable; the NCS2540 is a 750 MHz voltage feedback device with disable. Both devices are offered in a TSSOP-16 package. The NCS2535 and NCS2540 are priced respectively at $1.90 and $1.75 per unit for the same quantity.

The NCS2550 and NCS2552 are voltage feedback devices of 750 MHz. The NCS2552 comes with an ultra fast enable feature allowing enable times in the range of 5 ns. The NCS2550 is offered in a TSOP-5/SOT-23-5 package, while the NCS2552 is offered in the TSOP-6/SOT-23-6 package. The NCS2550 and NCS2552 are priced respectively at $1.35 and $1.40 per unit in 3,000 unit quantities.

The NCS2551 is a voltage feedback device of 500 MHz. This device has a slew rate of 1400 V/fs, but only consumes 5.5 mA of current draw. The NCS2551 is offered in a TSOP-5/SOT-23-5 package, and priced at $1.25 per unit in 3,000 unit quantities.

ON Semiconductor is dedicated to developing high-performance solutions for the demanding, high-growth video and multi-media markets,¨ said Bill Schromm, ON Semiconductor senior vice president and general manager of the Computing Products group. These high speed op amps are an important aspect of our growth into the digital consumer market space.¨
