Intersil's New Low-Noise, High-Voltage PicoAmpere Input Precision Operational Amplifiers Deliver Best Bias Current Drift at Lowest Power

Created on Intersil's Innovative Proprietary Precision Bipolar Process Technology, New ISL28207 Offers Top Performance for Instrumentation, Industrial and Data Acquisition Applications

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced the ISL28207, the first in a family of operational amplifiers built using the company's new proprietary bipolar process technology.

Intersil's ISL28207 is a dual 40V low-power bipolar precision operational amplifier that exhibits outstanding DC precision and superb temperature drift performance. The device offers a low offset voltage of 75 micro-V max and a typical input bias current of 60pA. Temperature drift is only 0.65 micro-V/degree C max for input offset voltage and 0.2pA/degree C for input bias current, making it ideal for 16- and 24-bit applications. The ISL28207 exhibits a wide operating voltage range of 4.5V to 40V and an operating temperature range of -40 to +125 degrees C.

Key advantages of the ISL28207 include:

--  Advanced bias current cancellation techniques to achieve extremely low
    bias current drift over the operating temperature range, making it well-
    suited for high-impedance input signals for process controls, automated
    test equipment, and data acquisition.
--  Lower power performance with exceptionally low noise and high DC
    precision accuracy over temperature (low offset drift), which are required
    for wireless sensor applications, portable data acquisition,
    instrumentation, and remote power meters.
--  High ESD protection (4kV HBM) reduces in-field failures for industrial
    applications in data acquisition and process control.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing starts at $1.58 each in 1,000-piece quantities in SOIC 8-lead packages.
