Exhibiting zero-drift, the MCP6N16 instrumentation amplifier employs a self-correcting architecture that maximizes DC performance. A CMOS process technology enables low power consumption while still providing 500 kHz bandwidth, and it features a hardware-enable pin for even more power savings. Additionally, the amplifier’s low, 1.8V operation allows two dry-cell, 1.5V batteries to be drained well beyond typical use, and its rail-to-rail input and output operation enables full-range use, even in low-supply conditions. Available today for samples and volume production, in 8-pin MSOP and 3 mm x 3 mm DFN packages, pricing is $1.52 each/5,000.
