This family of amplifiers has ultralow offset, drift, and bias current. The AD8551, AD8552, and AD8554 are single, dual, and quad amplifiers featuring rail-to-rail input and output swings. All are guaranteed to operate from 2.7 V to 5 V with a single supply.
The AD8551/AD8552/AD8554 provide the benefits previously found only in expensive auto-zeroing or chopper-stabilized amplifiers. Using Analog Devices, Inc. topology, these new zero-drift amplifiers combine low cost with high accuracy. No external capacitors are required.
With an offset voltage of only 1 μV and drift of 0.005 μV/°C, the AD8551/AD8552/AD8554 are perfectly suited for applications in which error sources cannot be tolerated. Temperature, position and pressure sensors, medical equipment, and strain gage amplifiers benefit greatly from nearly zero drift over their operating temperature range. The rail-to-rail input and output swings provided by the AD8551/AD8552/AD8554 make both high-side and low-side sensing easy.
The AD8551/AD8552/AD8554 are specified for the extended industrial/auto motive temperature range (−40°C to +125°C). The AD8551 single amplifier is available in 8-lead MSOP and 8-lead narrow SOIC packages. The AD8552 dual amplifier is available in 8-lead narrow SOIC and 8-lead TSSOP surface-mount packages. The AD8554 quad is available in 14-lead narrow SOIC and 14-lead TSSOP packages.

Tools & Simulations
LTspice® is a powerful, fast and free simulation software, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for improving the simulation of analog circuits.
Models for the following parts are available in LTspice:
Use the Analog Filter Wizard to design low-pass, high-pass, or band-pass filters with actual op amps in minutes. As you progress through the design process, you can observe the characteristics of your filter design from ideal specifications to real world circuit behavior. Quickly evaluate the tradeoffs in op amp specifications - including gain-bandwidth, noise, and supply current – to determine the best filter design for your requirements.
Use Photodiode Wizard to design a transimpedance amplifier circuit to interface with a photodiode. Select a photodiode from the library included in the tool, or enter custom photodiode specifications. Quickly observe tradeoffs between Bandwidth, Peaking (Q), and ENOB/SNR. Modify circuit parameters, and immediately see results in plots for pulse response, frequency response, and noise gain.
