Op Amps suit handheld and battery-powered applications.

Press Release Summary:




Housed in tiny DFN package, Models LT6001 and LT6002 are 1.8 V dual and quad operational amplifiers that draw 13 µA each. Input offset voltage is 500 µV max at 25°C with max drift of 5 µV/°C over temperature. Inputs and outputs feature rail-to-rail operation. Model LT6001 also includes shutdown pin, allowing current consumption to drop to 1.5 µA max when not in use.

First 1.8V Dual & Quad Op Amps in DFN Packages



MILPITAS, CA - February 28, 2006 - Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LT6001 and LT6002, the industry's first 1.8V dual and quad operational amplifiers available in a tiny DFN package. These micropower devices draw only 13uA per amplifier and have excellent performance characteristics. Input offset voltage is 500uV max at 25°C with a maximum drift of 5uV/°C over temperature. Inputs and outputs feature rail-to rail-operation.

This combination of low supply voltage, low current consumption and excellent DC specifications in a tiny DFN package make these parts ideal for handheld and battery-powered applications.

For even greater power savings, the dual LT6001 in 3mm x 3mm package also includes a shutdown pin, allowing current consumption to drop to 1.5uA max when not in use. "The LT600x family pushes the envelope for combining precision, low power and high density," says Erik Soule, general manager of Linear Technology's Signal Conditioning product group. "This feature set is highly desirable in portable medical and industrial instruments."

The LT6001 and LT6002 are available now with prices starting from $1.25 and $2.00 each in 1,000-piece quantities.
