Touchstone's TS12011 and TS12012 Op Amp, Comparator and Voltage Reference Combo ICs

“This is not just recognition of the TS12011/2, but it is confirmation of Touchstone's growing status as a force to be reckoned with in the analog IC business.”
--Brett Fox, CEO, Touchstone Semiconductor

Touchstone Semiconductor, a developer of high-performance, cost-effective, and low power analog integrated circuit solutions, today announced that EDN has named its TS12011 and TS12012 op amp/comparator/reference combo ICs as one of the “100 Hot Products of 2012.” The 2012 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness and popularity.

Both the TS12011 and TS12012 combine a 0.6V reference, 20µs analog comparator and unity-gain stable operational amplifier in a single package. They use only 1.6µA Icc (max) and offer a 10 times reduction in power consumption and operation down to 0.8V. This enables always-on, single-cell operation that was not previously possible. The TS12011 has a push-pull output, and the TS12012 has an open-drain output.

“We are thrilled that EDN’s readers have selected Touchstone’s TS12011 and TS12012 combo ICs to be included on their list of Hot 100 products,” said Brett Fox, CEO, Touchstone Semiconductor. “This is not just recognition of the TS12011/2, but it is confirmation of Touchstone's growing status as a force to be reckoned with in the analog IC business.”

“It's always a fun and enlightening challenge for the EDN editors to select the year's Hot 100 products, which has been an annual tradition at EDN since 1993. This year's selection not only reflects some technology trends that have been in place for a while, but also highlights some new trends that are just emerging, as well as a unique product or two that is in a class of its own,” said Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor, EDN.

The complete list of EDN’s Hot 100 products will be published in the December 14, 2012, issue of EDN Magazine.
