2.5-V voltage reference IC targets power-sensitive applications
January 23, 2012 // Paul Buckley
Touchstone Semiconductor has added the newest member of its voltage reference family, the TS6001A, a low-power, low-dropout precision SOT-23 voltage reference IC that reduces drift to a guaranteed 7 ppm/°C maximum, a 2X improvement over its closest competitor, the MAX6025A.
The combination of a small form factor, few external components and low supply current make the TS6001A an ideal choice for low-voltage, supply-independent, power-sensitive applications, including handheld and battery-operated equipment.
The TS6001A is capable of sinking and sourcing load currents up to 500 μA. The TS6001A consumes only 27 μA of supply current at no-load. It also offers an initial accuracy initial output voltage accuracy of less than 0.08%.
The TS6001A and TS6001B are available in a space-saving 3-pin SOT23 package. It is in stock and ready to ship. Pricing starts at $1.75 each for the TS6001A and $1.60 for the TS6001B in 1,000 piece quantities. The product is in stock and available from Future Electronics (www.futureelectronics.com).
Free samples and free demo boards are available for engineers wanting to test the product. Visit: www.touchstonesemi.com/freedemoboards.html. The TS6001A and TS6001B are part of Touchstone Semiconductor’s NanoWatt Analog high-performance analog integrated circuits portfolio.
