UNTERPREMSTAETTEN, Austria—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 3, 2007— austriamicrosystems (SWX: AMS), a leading global designer and manufacturer of analog integrated circuits (ICs) for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications announced today the introduction of the AS1710. This new product sees austriamicrosystems improving on the performance of comparable amplifiers.
The AS1710 operational amplifier operates from a single +2.7V to
+5.5V supply and can swing to within 100mV from the rails while
sinking or sourcing 50mA of output current. Large short time loads
common in various applications as in audio amplification are covered
with a peak current of greater than 200mA. The device also features
10MHz unity gain bandwidth and a 10V/us slew rate.
Offering improved output drive capability and showcasing
austriamicrosystems' low power consumption capabilities the AS1710
requires only 1.6mA of supply current and remarkable 1nA while in
"With a typical input bias current of only 50pA the AS1710 is
ideal for very low power circuits and high ohmic sensors," said Walter
Moshammer, marketing director for standard linear at
The AS1710 is available in a 6-pin SC70 package suitable for
operating environments ranging from -40(degree)C to +125(degree)C.
