Very Low-Power High Speed Rail-To-Rail Input/Output Voltage Feedback Operational Amplifier



Fabricated using the BiCom-II process, the THS4281 is a low-power, rail-to-rail input and output, voltage-feedback operational amplifier designed to operate over a wide power-supply range of 2.7-V to 15-V single supply, and ±1.35-V to ±7.5-V dual supply. Consuming only 750 µA with a unity gain bandwidth of 90 MHz and a high 35-V/µs slew rate, the THS4281 allows portable or other power-sensitive applications to realize high performance with minimal power. To ensure long battery life in portable applications, the quiescent current is trimmed to be less than 900 µA at +25°C, and 1 mA from –40°C to +85°C.

The THS4281 is a true single-supply amplifier with a specified common-mode input range of 400 mV beyond the rails. This allows for high-side current sensing applications without phase reversal concerns. Its output swings to within 40 mV from the rails with 10-kΩ loads, and 150 mV from the rails with 1-kΩ loads.

The THS4281 has a good 0.1% settling time of 78 ns, and 0.01% settling time of 150 ns. The low THD of –87 dBc at 100 kHz, coupled with a maximum offset voltage of less than 2.5 mV, makes the THS4281 a good match for high-resolution ADCs sampling less than 2 MSPS.

The THS4281 is offered in a space-saving SOT23-5 package, a small MSOP-8 package, and the industry standard SOIC-8 package.
