Two new single amplifiers have been released by Microchip. The  MCP6V11 and MCP6V31 operate with a single supply voltage as low as 1.6V and a quiescent  current as low as 7.5µA.

The devices offer low quiescent current for the given bandwidth without sacrificing the optimal performance essential for portable applications in the consumer and medical markets.

They enable the development of portable medical products integrated with higher efficiency, and signal-conditioning hardware and software, which is  critical to accommodate the continued push for lower costs and faster times to market. 

In addition, designers of industrial applications such as portable sensor conditioning and instrumentation, which require low power, smaller form factors, simplified thermal management and cost control, can benefit from the optimised performance, low quiescent current and low operating voltage made possible by the MCP6V11/31 op amps.
