Microchip Rolls Out Three Extended Industrial Temperature Range Op Amps

7/28/2003 - Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP), a leading provider of microntrollers and analog semiconductors, announced three operational amplifier (op amp) families featuring extended industrial temperature range (–40-degrees Celsius to +125-degrees Celsius) and input/output rail-to-rail functionality. These are general–purpose op amps ideal for many diverse markets, specifically in automotive, industrial and other appliances where higher temperature is expected.

These multiple Gain Bandwidth Product (GBWP) op amps have a low-supply current requirement, which enables an efficient current-flow design. With an offering at 2MHz, 5MHz and 10MHz GBWP, the engineers have a migration path to maximize their designs for best bandwidth vs. supply current. This path along the GBWP spectrum is available for amplifiers with the same general performance making it easier to change or improve designs.

These op amp families are designed with Microchip’s advanced CMOS process and provide a wide bandwidth for the current. Additionally, they support both input and output rail-to-rail swing. Microchip’s MCP6271/2/3/4 family has a 2MHz-gain bandwidth and a 65-degree phase margin. They operate from a single-supply voltage as low as 2.0V, while drawing a 170uA (typical) quiescent current at 5.5V.

The MCP6281/2/3/4 family has a 5MHz-gain bandwidth and 65-degree phase margin. This family operates from a single-supply voltage as low as 2.2V, while drawing 450uA (typical) quiescent current at 5.5V. Microchip’s MCP6291/2/3/4 family has a 10MHz-gain bandwidth product and 65-degree phase margin. This family also operates from a single-supply voltage as low as 2.4V, while drawing 1mA (typical) quiescent current at 5.5V.

These devices are available in PDIP, SOIC, MSOP and TSSOP packaging and offer single, single with chip select, dual and quad amplifiers. Pricing in 1,000-unit quantities for the MCP6271 is $0.39 USD; MCP6272 is $0.51; MCP6273 is $0.40 and the MCP6274 is $0.93. Pricing in 1,000-unit quantities for the MCP6281 is $0.46 USD, MCP6282 is $061; MCP6283 is $0.48 and the MCP6284 $1.06. Pricing in 1,000-unit quantities for the MCP6291 is $0.50, MCP$0.67; MCP6293 is $0.53 and the MCP6294 $1.17. Samples are available today and volume production is scheduled in August.
