Microchip Technology introduced the MCP647X/8X/9X family of low-power, general-purpose operational amplifiers. The nine-member op amp family is available now for sampling and volume production. Prices start at $0.49 each in 5,000-unit quantities. The MCP6471, MCP6481 and MCP6491 are offered in 5-pin SC70 and SOT-23 packages. The MCP6472, MCP6482 and MCP6492 are available in 8-pin SOIC, TDFN and MSOP packages. The MCP6474, MCP6484 and MCP6494 are available in 14-pin SOIC and TSSOP packages.
The MCP647X/8X/9X family of general-purpose op amps provide low supply current, low leakage current over temperature and low input offset voltage in small packages. The 1.5 mV offset voltage offers better precision than the industry standard for general-purpose op amps, without the price premium of high-precision op amps. The MCP647X/8X/9X’s low leakage current is ideal for applications that have sensors with high output impedance or that go through accelerated life tests at high temperatures.
According to Microchip, the new op amps provide among the industry’s best power consumption for a given gain-bandwidth product, including low quiescent current, to extend battery lifetimes. In addition, the devices have exceptionally low leakage current over temperature, up to 125°C, which reduces errors in applications such as sensor conditioning. In combination with features such as input offset voltage of 1.5 mV and space-saving packages as small as SC70 and SOT-23, the MCP647X/8X/9X op amps are ideal for consumer, industrial, automotive and medical applications.
