Analog Devices is introducing a suite of amplifiers designed to meet the demanding signal conditioning requirements of high-voltage industrial and instrumentation equipment With operating voltages up to +/-18V, these breakthrough analogue components increase performance relative to conventional bipolar amplifiers, while reducing package size by as much as 75% and power consumption by up to 50%
In many cases, this means industrial equipment designers can migrate from SOIC packaged ICs to much smaller TSOT-23 packages, generating a space savings that simplifies board layout or leaves room for other functions.
Moreover, the devices' +/-18V power supply dramatically reduces the additional signal conditioning, signal biasing and external components required to interface lower-voltage analogue components to high-voltage industrial and instrumentation sensors and transducers, further reducing design complexity for industrial equipment developers.
The products are manufactured on a new process technology developed by Analog Devices expressly for the needs of high-voltage applications.
