STMicroelectronics Inc. (ST, Geneva, Switzerland) introduced a dual operational amplifier able to drive 200 mA down to voltages as low as 2.7 V. It is designed for industrial and automotive applications, including Hall sensor compensation coils, servo amplifiers and motor drivers.
The TS982 operates at supply voltages ranging from 2.5 V to 5.5 V and offers up to 200 mA of output current on each amplifier at supply voltages down to 2.7 V. The part offers rail-to-rail input and output and is stable with a unity gain.
It is offered in an SO-8 exposed-pad package that enables high current output at high ambient temperatures. This makes it a reliable solution for automotive and industrial applications. Pricing is $0.65 in 1,000-unit quantities.
