LMV331's form, fit and function are ideal for portable applicationsGENEVA, Feb. 5 — (PRNewswire) — STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a leading supplier of analog ICs and the market leader in comparators, has completed its portfolio of industry-standard comparators in space-saving packages by introducing the LMV331 in a choice of 2.00 x 1.25mm SC70 or 2.90 x 1.60mm SOT23 form factors.
Battery-powered devices such as notebook PCs, PDAs and other handheld mobile communications products are major users of low-power comparators, such as the LMV331, for duties including signal handling or event detection. ST's variety of industry-standard comparators enables designers to optimize power consumption, response time and package size according to application requirements. ST's new LMV331 variants, in miniature 5-pin packages, maximize choice for designers seeking the best combination of speed and power for space-constrained applications.
Performance highlights of the LMV331 include:
- Supply voltage range: 2.7V to 5V
- Current consumption (Operating): 20mircoA (Vcc = 2.7V)
- Propagation delay: 200ns
- Input-offset voltage: 1mV
- Input-offset current: 1nA
- Operating temperature range: -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius
- ESD tolerance: 2kV HBM / 200V MM
The LMV331 is in mass production now, and is priced from $0.25 in quantities of 1000 units.
