Microchip Technology Inc. expands its portfolio of programmable amplifiers with a family of 900 MHz, selectable-gain amplifiers. The MCP6G01, MCP6G02, MCP6G03 and MCP6G04 (MCP6G0x) are amplifiers with a gain-select pin in place of a negative-input-pin, enabling digital gain control for better system accuracy and dynamic range. The amplifiers can be used as drop-in replacements for op amps, as microcontroller-controlled amplifiers or as stand-alone gain blocks and eliminate the need for external resistors. This leads to reduced component count, design size and costs.
