austriamicrosystems Introduces High Output Drive, 10MHz, 10V/µs Rail-to Rail I/O Operational Amplifier

AS1710 operational amplifier is ideal for applications like headphone or speaker driver, hands-free kits, TFT panels, sound ports, DAC buffers and other items where high output drives and high slew rates are vital

Unterpremstaetten, Austria (3 July, 2007) - austriamicrosystems (SWX: AMS), a leading global designer and manufacturer of analog integrated circuits (ICs) for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications announced today the introduction of the AS1710. This new product sees austriamicrosystems improving on the performance of comparable amplifiers.

The AS1710 operational amplifier operates from a single +2.7V to +5.5V supply and can swing to within 100mV from the rails while sinking or sourcing 50mA of output current. Large short time loads common in various applications as in audio amplification are covered with a peak current of >200mA. The device also features 10MHz unity gain bandwidth and a 10V/µs slew rate.

Offering improved output drive capability and showcasing austriamicrosystems' low power consumption capabilities the AS1710 requires only 1.6mA of supply current and remarkable 1nA while in shutdown (AS1710B).

"With a typical input bias current of only 50pA the AS1710 is ideal for very low power circuits and high ohmic sensors," said Walter Moshammer, marketing director for standard linear at austriamicrosystems.

The AS1710 is available in a 6-pin SC70 package suitable for operating environments ranging from -40°C to +125°C. Product specific information can be downloaded from the website at http://austriamicrosystems.com/03products/products_detail/AS1710/description_AS1710.htm
