Diodes Incorporated Announces Low Voltage, Low Current Op-Amp for Battery-Powered Applications

February 18, 2014



PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq:DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today introduced the TLV271 single-channel, rail-to-rail output op-amp. A drop-in replacement for alternative industry-standard parts, the op-amp enables designers to make full use of the entire supply voltage operating range.

The device’s wide minimum/maximum output range of 2.7V to 16V enables the TLV271 to support an extensive array of low-power and battery-operated consumer and industrial products. A quiescent current of only 550µA helps minimize power consumption for devices operating over a gain bandwidth of 2MHz and with a slew rate of only 1.4V/µs.

In addition, Diodes Incorporated’s version of the TLV271 offers an improved level of stability and phase margin, enabling capacitive loads of up to 100pF to be driven without the need of a nulling resistor. The high input impedance and minimal bias current of this CMOS device also makes it suitable for use with a wide range of signal sensors.

To help meet a wider range of system requirements, the op-amp is provided in a choice of SOT23-5 or SO8 packaging and in commercial (0 to +70ºC) and industrial (-40ºC to +125ºC) temperature ranges. For further information, visit the Company’s website at www.diodes.com.
