Microchip Technology introduced the MCP651/2/5 (MCP65X) operational amplifiers (op amps) with mCal on-chip calibration circuit. The MCP651 op amp is available in an 8-pin SOIC package for $1.21 each, in 10,000-unit quantities. The MCP652 is also available in an 8-pin SOIC package for $1.49 each in 10,000-unit quantities, and in a 3 x 3 mm DFN package for $1.55 each in 10,000-unit quantities. The MCP655 is available in 10-pin MSOP and 3 x 3 mm DFN packages for $1.58 each in 10,000-unit quantities, for both package options.
The MCP65X op amps’ mCal on-chip calibration circuit calibrates offset voltage at power-up using an internal power on-reset detector, or based upon the state of an external pin. The result is a low initial voltage offset and a means to minimize drift over time and temperature, which are extremely important for applications involving instrumentation and sensor conditioning. The high-bandwidth (50 MHz), low-power MCP651/2/5 (MCP65X) op amps provide low bias and quiescent currents, high output-drive capability and a rail-to-rail output for better performance across the entire operating-voltage range.
The MCP65X op amps feature a high output-drive current of 95 milliamperes, which enables them to drive heavy loads and results in better performance across a wide range of applications. With their rail-to-rail output, the op amps provide greater dynamic range (even at lower operating voltages) for more accurate performance across the entire operating-voltage range.
The MCP65X op amps are ideal for consumer electronic (microphone preamplifiers, optical detector circuitry, digital scales), industrial (instrumentation, H-bridge drivers, barcode scanners, transmission-line drivers), medical markets (patient monitoring, ultrasound equipment, instrumentation), and other applications requiring high speed and precision.
