  • TLV2254A  - The device has SIMILAR FUNCTIONALITY but is not functionally equivalent to the compared device.   See the TLV2254A for wider bandwidth (0.2MHz), lower noise (19nV/rt(Hz)), and higher DC precision (850µV maximum offset, 0.5µV/°C drift)


The TLC107x operational amplifiers offer ultra-low offset voltage, high gain, 110-kHz bandwidth, 47-V/ms slew rate, and just 150-uW power dissipation per amplifier.

With a supply voltage of 1.4 V, common-mode input to the negative rail, and output swing to the negative rail, the TLC107xC is an ideal solution for low-voltage battery-operated systems. The 20-mA output drive capability means that the TLC107x can easily drive small resistive and large capacitive loads when needed, while maintaining ultra-low standby power dissipation.

Since this device is functionally compatible as well as pin compatible with the TLC27L2/4 and TLC27L7/9, the TLC107x easily upgrades existing designs that can benefit from its improved performance.

The TLC107x incorporates internal ESD-protection circuits that will prevent functional failures at voltages up to 2000 V as tested under MIL-PRF-38535, Method 3015.2; however, care should be exercised when handling these devices as exposure to ESD may result in degradation of the device parametric performance. The TLC107x design also inhibits latch-up of the device inputs and outputs even with surge currents as large 100 mA.

The C-suffix devices are characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C. The I-suffix devices are characterized for operation from -40°C to 85°C. The M-suffix devices are characterized for operation over the full military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. The wide range of packaging options includes small-outline and chip-carrier versions for high-density system applications.
