Diodes Incorporated has introduced its own variant of the TLC271 programmable op-amp. The part offers a bias-select mode, enabling closer matching of power dissipation and AC performance with the specific requirements of battery-powered consumer and industrial products.
To help extend battery cell life, its low-bias mode helps reduce power dissipation, while medium and high bias modes progressively increase op-amp AC performance. Bias modes can also be dynamically changed, allowing the device to idle in power-saving mode then switch to a defined high-performance mode in response to application demand.
Diodes Incorporated is partnering the release of its own SO-8 packaged TLC271 with a companion part, the TLC271L. This fixed-metal mask option has the bias-select pin removed and operates continuously in power-saving, low-bias mode.
