Op amps work well in noisy environments

Op amps work well in noisy environments

Microchip Technology Inc. announces three new families (MCP6H7X/8X/9X) of low power, general-purpose operational amplifiers (op amps) that expand the range to 12-V supply voltages. Because they maintain the same pin-outs and features of Microchip’s existing 6 and 16 V families, designers can easily migrate to the ideal voltage rail, along with the new families’ higher speed Gain Bandwidth Product (GBWP) range of 2.7 to 10 MHz. All nine members of the new families are available in single, dual, and quad configurations.

Designers often must compensate for noise from transients in the power supply or the common-mode voltage. With high Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR), high Power Supply Rejection Ratio (PSRR), unity-gain stable and rail-to-rail out, the new op amps are suitable for applications that operate in noisy environments, such as current sensing and power supplies for the automotive and industrial markets. Wide operating voltage and common-mode voltage ranges, along with small 2 x 3-mm package options, make these op amps well suited for portable and battery-powered applications in the consumer and medical markets.

The MCP6H71, MCP6H72, MCP6H81, MCP6H82, MCP6H91, and MCP6H92 are all available in 8-pin SOIC and 2 x 3-mm TDFN packages. The MCP6H74, MCP6H84, and MCP6H94 are all available in 14-pin SOIC and TSSOP packages.
