New device contributes to longer operating time for battery-powered equipment
Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH (“Toshiba") has released a new CMOS operational amplifier featuring ultra-low current consumption to its product line-up.
Operational amplifiers have a multitude of uses including boosting weak signals from sensors. To support longer use between charges of battery-operated equipment, including IoT edge devices and other mobile devices such as handheld POS terminals they must also deliver lower current consumption.
Toshiba has used its CMOS process technology to optimize the circuitry of the new TC75S102F operational amplifier thereby lowering its power consumption to ultra-low levels. With a supply voltage between 1.5V and 5.5V, the new device is a full-range (rail-to-rail) input/output operational amplifier that offers higher performance than its predecessor. The supply current (IDD) will never exceed 0.6μA and is typically half that figure at just 0.27μA.
The new TC75S102F is supplied in a SOT-25 package measuring just 2.9mm x 1.6mm x 1.1mm. Shipments start today.
