Linear Technology Corp. announced that its 1.8V dual and quad operational amplifiers are the first available in a tiny DFN package.

In addition, the LT6001 and LT6002 precision op amps draw 13A per amplifier. Input offset voltage is 500V maximum at 25C with a maximum drift of 5V/C over temperature. Inputs and outputs feature rail-to rail-operation.

This combination of supply voltage, current consumption and DC specifications in a DFN package make these parts suited for handheld and battery-powered applications including portable medical and industrial instruments, says Erik Soule, general manager of Linear Technology's Signal Conditioning product group.

For even greater power savings, the dual LT6001 (3-by-3mm package) also includes a shutdown pin, allowing current consumption to drop to 1.5A maximum when not in use, Soule said.

The LT6001 and LT6002 operational amplifiers are already available with prices starting from $1.25 and $2 each, respectively, in 1,000-piece quantities. Additional information can be found at the company's website.
