Tiny Amps Take On Huge Design Issues

Texas Instruments (TI) takes a whack the never-ending quest for compactness with what it calls the industry's smallest operational amplifier (op amp) and low-power comparators, Measuring 0.64 mm2, the TLV9061 op amp and TLV7011 family of comparators debut as the first amplifiers in the compact X2SON package.

 

With a gain bandwidth of 10 MHz, slew rate at 6.5 V/µs, and a spectral density of 10 nV/√Hz, the TLV9061 op amp is designed for use in wide-bandwidth, high-performance systems. The TLV7011 family of nanopower comparators delivers a faster response time with propagation delays down to 260 ns, while consuming 50% less power than similar devices. 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.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2018 Hits Silicon Valley June 26-28!

Join thousands of engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it.

TLV9061 Op Amp Highlights

  • integrated EMI filtering inputs. This helps provide resilient performance for systems prone to RF noise, while significantly reducing the need for external
  • greater DC accuracy
  • two times lower offset drift and typical input bias across a full temperature range, -40°C to +125°C. 

TLV7011 Comparator Highlights

  • no phase reversal and integrated internal hysteresis for overdriven inputs
  • power as low as 335 nA
  • propagation delay down to 260 ns 

Preproduction samples of the TLV9061 op amp and volume quantities of the TLV7011 family of comparators are available now in a five-pin X2SON package measuring 0.8 mm x 0.8 mm x 0.4 mm. Pricing starts at $0.19 and $0.25 each/1,000, respectively. If you want to learn even more, checkout the TLV9061 op amp and TLV7011 comparator data sheets.
