The TLV3201-Q1 and TLV3202-Q1 are single and dual-channel comparators that offer the ultimate combination of high speed (40 ns) and low-power consumption (40 µA), both in extremely small packages with features such as rail-to-rail input, low offset voltage (1 mV), and large output drive current. The devices are also very easy to implement in a wide variety of applications where response time is critical.

The TLV320x-Q1 family is available in single (TLV3201-Q1) and dual (TLV3202-Q1) channel versions, both with push-pull outputs. The TLV3201-Q1 is available in the 5-pin SC70 package. The TLV3202-Q1 is available in the 8-pin VSSOP package. All devices are specified for operation across the expanded industrial temperature range of –40°C to +125°C.
