Future Electronics Offers Low-Power, High-Precision Operational Amplifiers from Microchip

Montreal, Canada – April 19, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Microchip’s MCP6031 operational amplifier and Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board.

Future Electronics customers will benefit from the high accuracy and extended battery life delivered by these operational amplifiers. Microchip’s low-power Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor (CMOS) technology and implementation of non-volatile memory for in-package trimming enable the MCP6031/2/3/4 amplifiers’ extremely low offset. This minimizes error, especially at higher gains.

Additionally, with an operating voltage range of 1.8V to 5.5V, the amplifiers can run off of two 1.5V battery cells with full battery utilization. Their low power consumption extends battery life, and their rail-to-rail input/output structure enables greater dynamic range and better performance across the entire operating-voltage range.

The MCP6031 Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board is also available from Future Electronics. It supports the Microchip MCP6031 high precision op amp, and uses a transimpedance amplifier as a sensor conditioning circuit, and a PIN photodiode (PNZ334) as a light detector. It also features test points for connecting lab equipment.

Microchip’s MCP6031 operational amplifier and Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board are available now from Future Electronics. For more information and to watch a video about this product, click here.
