High precision, low power

Intersil has launched a range of low power analogue devices which feature high signal accuracy. According to Simon Prutton, general manager of the company’s analog and mixed signal products business: “The market for general purpose products that allow the precise conditioning of analogue signals is worth approximately $1billion.”

“We have already identified many unsatisfied needs for products that deliver improved accuracy over temperature and time. The first of those parts are launching under the pinPOINT product name and there are many more to come in future.” The pinPOINT range will feature precision voltage references, precision op amps, comparators, instrumentation amplifiers, current sensing amplifiers and data converters. Future pinPOINT releases will include high resolution Sigma Delta a/d converters, precision current sensing amplifiers and a/d drivers.
