Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced the industry’s smallest operational amplifier (op amp) and low-power comparators at 0.64 mm2. Being the first amplifiers in the compact X2SON package, the new TLV9061 op amp and TLV7011 family of comparators enable engineers to reduce their system size and cost.
The noticeable feature of the new amplifiers is that their size does not affect the performance. They offer high performance in a variety of Internet of Things (IoT), personal electronics and industrial applications, including mobile phones, wearables, optical modules, motor drives, smart grid and battery-powered systems.
As part of TI’s small-size amplifier portfolio these new devices enable engineers to design smaller systems, while maintaining high performance. They allow possibility of industry-leading package options and many of the world’s smallest op amps and comparators.
With a high gain bandwidth (GBW) of 10 MHz, fast slew rate at 6.5 V/µs and low-noise spectral density of 10 nV/√Hz, the TLV9061 op amp is designed for use in wide-bandwidth, high-performance systems. Additionally, both devices support rail-to-rail inputs with low-voltage operation down to 1.8 V, enabling ease-of-use in battery-powered applications.
In addition to its tiny size, the TLV9061 op amp also features integrated EMI filtering inputs. This helps provide resilient performance for systems prone to RF noise, while significantly reducing the need for external discrete circuitry.
Two times lower offset drift and typical input bias across a full temperature range, -40 to 125 degrees Celsius, creates a more precise signal chain solution compared to other small devices. With power as low as 335 nA and fast propagation delay down to 260 ns, the TLV7011 family of nano-power comparators enable low-power systems to monitor signals and respond quickly.
