Milpitas, Calif.Intersil Corp. has created the pinPOINT Precision Analog product line that consists of precision voltage references, precision op amps, comparators, instrumentation amplifiers, current sensing amplifiers and data converters.
The voltage-reference products included in the pinPOINT family of products will include references that offer what the company claims is the industry's highest performance at the lowest power consumption. The recently released ISL21007/9 sets new standards for low noise performance at low power, while the ISL60002 reference family delivers superior accuracy while using less than 1 microampere of supply current.
The pinPOINT product line will also include a wide range of amplifiers that feature true precision across the entire common mode voltage range due to their full rail-to-rail input capabilities with zero crossover distortion at very low power. Key devices in the family include the ISL28194, a low power consuming op amp. This device has the ability to operate down to 1.8-V with a maximum supply current of just 330-nA.
The micropower instrumentation amplifiers included in the pinPOINT family will enable designers to upgrade performance, save space and reduce costs. Standout devices in this family include ISL28470, a quad rail-to-rail input/output precision instrumentation amplifier.
All of Intersil's pinPOINT amplifiers are specified over the full automotive temperature range (-40°C to 125°C), making them ideal for automotive and industrial applications. Most devices are offered in industry standard pin-out package option as well as options that include enable pins that allow battery powered applications to shut down devices and extend battery life.
Future pinPOINT releases will include high-resolution Sigma Delta analog-to-digital converters, precision current sensing amplifiers and analog-to-digital drivers.
