Texas Instruments (TI) on February 8, 2018, introduced the industry’s smallest operational amplifier (op-amp) and low-power comparators at 0.64 mm2. As the first amplifiers in the compact X2SON package, the TLV9061 op-amp and TLV7011 family of comparators enable engineers to reduce their system size and cost, while maintaining high performance in a variety of Internet of Things (IoT), personal electronics and industrial applications, including mobile phones, wearables, optical modules, motor drives, smart grid and battery-powered systems. For more information, see www.TI.com/TLV9061-pr and www.TI.com/TLV7011-pr.
With a high gain bandwidth (GBW) of 10 MHz, fast slew rate at 6.5 V/µs and low-noise spectral density of 10 nV/√Hz, the TLV9061 op-amp is designed for use in wide-bandwidth, high-performance systems. The TLV7011 family of nano power comparators delivers a faster response time with propagation delays down to 260 ns, while consuming 50 percent less power than competitive comparators. Additionally, both devices support rail-to-rail inputs with low-voltage operation down to 1.8 V, enabling ease-of-use in battery-powered applications.
Achieve high performance in tiny spaces with the TLV9061 operational amplifier
- Reduces system size and cost: In addition to its tiny size, the TLV9061 op-amp also features integrated EMI filtering inputs. This helps provide resilient performance for systems prone to RF noise, while significantly reducing the need for external discrete circuitry.
- Greater DC accuracy: Two times lower offset drift and typical input bias across a full temperature range, -40 to 125 degrees Celsius, creates a more precise signal chain solution compared to other small devices.
Lower power, faster response with the tiny TLV7011 family of comparators
- Smaller footprint, extra features: No phase reversal and integrated internal hysteresis for overdriven inputs increase design flexibility and reduce the need for external components.
- Fifty percent less power consumption: With power as low as 335 nA and fast propagation delay down to 260 ns, the TLV7011 family of nano power comparators enable low-power systems to monitor signals and respond quickly.
These new devices join TI’s small-size amplifier portfolio which enables engineers to design smaller systems, while maintaining high performance, with industry-leading package options and many of the world’s smallest op-amps and comparators.
Tools and support to speed design
Designers can download the TINA-TI SPICE model to simulate their designs and predict circuit behavior when using the TLV9061 op-amp and TLV7011 family of comparators. Engineers can jump-start their small brushed DC servo drive designs using the TLV9061 op-amp with the 10.8-V/15-W, >90% Efficiency, 2.4-cm2, Power Stage Reference Design. Also, they can quickly and easily evaluate the TLV7011 comparators with the DIP adapter evaluation module, available today for US$5.00 from the TI store and authorized distributors.
Package, availability, and pricing
Preproduction samples of the TLV9061 op-amp and volume quantities of the TLV7011 family of comparators are now available through the TI store and authorized distributors in a 5-pin extra small outline no-lead (X2SON) package, measuring 0.8 mm x 0.8 mm x 0.4 mm. Pricing starts at US$0.19 and US$0.25 in 1,000-unit quantities, respectively. Learn more about the family of comparators in the table below.
