MILPITAS, Calif. (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Touchstone Semiconductor, a developer of high-performance, low power analog integrated circuit solutions, today announced the immediate availability of the TSA7887, its first Analog Devices alternate source IC. The new TSA7887 is a two-channel, 12-bit, 125-ksps analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that can be used as a drop-in replacement for the Analog Devices AD7887.
Priced at $1.25 in 1,000-piece quantities, the new Touchstone TSA7887 is $3 less expensive, pin-compatible, specification-identical, and functionally identical to the Analog Devices’ AD7887. Touchstone now offers a total of 17 parts from Maxim and Analog Devices in its alternate-source analog IC family.
Touchstone’s alternate-source parts are drop-in replacements that can be used in conjunction with the original manufacturer’s ICs. Replacement parts ensure electronics companies have access to a constant supply of parts to build their products. All Touchstone alternate-source analog ICs are in stock and available to ship immediately.
The new TSA7887’s features include:
The TSA7887 is an ideal choice as an easy-to-use, stand-alone 12-bit ADC in low-power, industrial, process control, and data-acquisition applications. Some portable and fixed-form-factor applications for the TSA7887 include: optical sensors, touch panels, personal digital assistants, programmable logic controllers, and medical instrumentation.
The TSA7887 is available in 8-pin SOIC and MSOP packages. It is in stock and ready to ship from Touchstone’s distributors: Digi-Key and Future Electronics.
