San Jose, CA--August 27, 1996--Micrel Semiconductor Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced its entry into the operational amplifier (op amp) marketplace with the introduction of the company's first offering, the MIC6211.
The MIC6211 is a general purpose amplifier patterned after the industry workhorse LM324, and was chosen to bring the benefits of micro-miniature packaging to general purpose products.
Unlike the quad LM324, the MIC6211 is a single amplifier. Micrel's IttyBitty packaging allows more than four amplifiers to occupy the space currently occupied by the quad's conventional packaging.
The MIC6211 is a high gain, internally frequency-compensated device that can be operated from either a single-ended (4Vdc to 32Vdc) power supply, or in the more traditional split supply mode.
The new op amp features low (2.0mA max.) supply current, 2.5 MHz unity gain bandwidth, 7V/S slew rate, and an operating temperature range of -40 degrees C less than or equal to TA less than or equal to 85 degrees C.
Pricing in 1000+ quantities for the MIC6211 in IttyBitty (SOT-23-5) package is $0.40. Delivery for the production volumes is four to six weeks after receipt of order. Samples are available now.
