Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) [NASDAQ: MCHP] has expanded its instrumentation amplifier portfolio with the new zero-drift MCP6N16. This self-correcting architecture maximizes DC performance by enabling ultra-low offset, low-offset drift, and superior common-mode and power-supply rejection, while eliminating the adverse effects of 1/f noise. The result is very high accuracy across both time and temperature. Additional features include:
- Low-power CMOS process technology that enables low power consumption while still providing 500 kHz bandwidth.
- A hardware-enable pin.
- 1.8 V operation, which allows 2 dry-cell, 1.5 V batteries to be drained well beyond typical use.
- Rail-to-rail input and output operation that enables full-range use, even in low-supply conditions.
