Touchstone Semiconductor Introduces the Industry’s Only 0.8V to 5.5V, Rail-to-Rail Single Op Amps in SC70; TS1003 Draws Only 0.6µA and the TS1005 Draws Only 1.3µA

Touchstone announced that it has added two new, micropower operational amplifiers (op amps) to its “NanoWatt Analog™” high-performance analog integrated circuits. Priced at $0.35 in 1K quantities, the TS1003 draws 0.6µA and exhibits a 4-kHz gain-bandwidth product (GBWP) while the TS1005 is the industry’s lowest-power 20kHz gain–bandwidth product op amp and draws 1.3µA.

Touchstone TS1003 and TS1005 Low-Power Op Amps (SC70-5)

Touchstone announced the introduction of the industry’s only 0.8V to 5.5V, rail-to-rail single op amps in SC70 packaging.

Milpitas, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2013

Touchstone Semiconductor, a leading developer of high-performance, low-power analog integrated circuit solutions, today announced that it has added two new, micropower operational amplifiers (op amps) to its “NanoWatt Analog™” high-performance analog integrated circuits portfolio: the TS1003 and TS1005, both available in SC70-5 packaging and ready to ship from Digi-Key, Touchstone Semiconductor’s authorized distributor.

The TS1003 and the TS1005 are priced at $0.35 in 1K-piece quantities. The TS1003 draws 0.6µA and exhibits a 4-kHz gain-bandwidth product (GBWP). The TS1005--the industry’s lowest-power 20kHz gain–bandwidth product op amp--draws 1.3µA. Both the TS1003 and the TS1005 exhibit a typical input bias current of 2pA and rail-to-rail input/output stages.

The TS1003 and the TS1005 op amps are optimized for ultra-long-life battery-powered applications, including micropower active filters, wireless remote sensors, battery and powerline current sensors, portable gas monitors and handheld/portable point-of-sale (POS) terminals.
