Chandler, Ariz. Microchip Technology Inc. is offering single-supply, rail-to-rail input/output, low-power operational amplifiers in space-saving 5-pin SOT-23 packages that operate over a variety of bandwidths ranging from 10 kHz to 10 MHz.
The op amps can be used in any application requiring signal conditioning, buffering, amplification or filtering, such as portable equipment, automotive subsystems, photodiode preamps, computer notebooks, PDAs, and battery-powered equipment.
The rail-to-rail inputs/outputs increase the dynamic range and maximize overall performance, which is especially critical for low-voltage applications. Select SOT-23 op amps feature an extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to 125°C, low operating voltage down to 1.4 V, and a chip-select pin, which further reduces power consumption when not in use.
To help speed the design process, Microchip provides the FilterLab active filter software design tool and SPICE macro models at no cost. The FilterLab tool simplifies active filter design and gives users full schematic diagrams of the filter circuit with component values and displays the frequency response.
All SOT-23 op amps are available today for sampling and volume production. Selected device pricing in 10,000-unit quantities is: 17 cents each for the MCP6001, 19 cents each for the MCP6231 and 39 cents each for the MCP6293. Click here for the MCP6001 data sheet.
