ISL60007 Eliminates the Compromise Between Low Power & Precision

Milpitas, Calif. — The newest addition to Intersil Corp.'s high-precision voltage reference family (ILS600007) touts the industry's lowest power consumption without compromising accuracy.

The ISL60007 is a 2.50-V voltage reference that features power consumption of (1.08μW) combined with high accuracy (±0.5 mV), low temperature coefficient (3 ppm/°C) and long-term stability (10 ppm/square root of 1 kilohertz route square).

Fabricated utilizing Intersil's Floating Gate Analog (FGA) technology, the ISL60007 voltage reference is suited for high accuracy battery-operated systems. The higher accuracy and lower power consumption of the ISL60007 allows higher precision for industrial, analytical and other such portable systems coupled with extended battery life. This extended performance cannot be achieved with conventional technologies, according to Intersil.

“By storing the reference voltage as a precise charge on a floating gate, Intersil is able to produce precision voltage references that feature exceptional initial accuracy, and extreme long-term stability at low supply current,” commented Jules Farago, marketing manager for Intersil's Precision Voltage Reference Products.

Unlike bandgap and buried zener technologies that depend on the voltage produced by a silicon junction, Intersil's FGA technology produces reference voltages by storing a precise charge on a floating gate cell, resulting in extraordinarily accurate and stable references that are essentially unaffected by external influences such as variations in temperature, supply voltage and time.

The ISL60007 voltage reference is now available in a standard 8-lead SOIC package with 1,000 unit prices starting at $3.15 each.
