The LTC6240/6241/LTC6242 are single, dual and quad low noise, low offset, rail-to-rail output, unity gain stable CMOS op amps that feature 1pA of input bias current. Input bias current is guaranteed to be 1pA max on the single LTC6240. The 0.1Hz to 10Hz noise of only 550nVP-P, along with an offset of just 125μV are significant improvements over traditional CMOS op amps. Additionally, noise is guaranteed to be less than 10nV/√Hz at 1kHz. An 18MHz gain bandwidth, and 10V/μs slew rate, along with the wide supply range and low input capacitance, make them perfect for use as fast signal processing amplifiers.
These op amps have an output stage that swings within 30mV of either supply rail to maximize the signal dynamic range in low supply applications. The input common mode range extends to the negative supply. They are fully specified on 3V and 5V, and an HV version guarantees operation on supplies up to ±5V.
The LTC6240 is available in the 8-pin SO and the 5-pin SOT- 23 packages. The LTC6241 is available in the 8-pin SO, and for compact designs it is packaged in a tiny dual fine pitch leadless (DFN) package. The LTC6242 is available in the 16-pin SSOP as well as the 5mm × 3mm DFN package.
