TI's new zero-drift PGA provides 5uV offset voltage for precision and long-term stability
DALLAS, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced a fully differential, zero-drift, 36-V programmable gain amplifier (PGA). At 5uV, the PGA281 offers the lowest offset voltage in its class to improve accuracy and long-term stability. Its zero-drift architecture enables DC precision and long-term stability. It also reduces the need for future system calibration. Designers can use the PGA281 in industrial signal acquisition applications, including test and measurement, strain gauges, bridge amplifiers, and medical instrumentation. For more information or to order samples and an evaluation module (EVM), see www.ti.com/pga281.
Key features and benefits of the PGA281:
Packaging, availability and pricing
The PGA281 is available now in a 5-mm by 6.4-mm, 16-pin TSSOP package, specified over a temperature range of –40 C to +105 C, for a suggested retail price of US$2.55 in 1,000-unit quantities.
Tools and support
TI offers a variety of tools and support to speed design with the PGA281.
The PGA281EVM evaluation module (EVM) allows designers to quickly and easily evaluate the functionality and versatility of the device.
The PGA281 is included in a new TI Precision Designs reference design, "10uA-100mA, 0.05% Error, High-Side Current Sensing," that uses flexible gain configurations to achieve precise current sensing across four decades. The TI Precision Designs reference design library provides comprehensive board-level precision designs to help engineers quickly evaluate and customize their systems.
A SPICE model is also available for designing, testing and troubleshooting a broad variety of basic and advanced circuits, including complex architectures, without any node or number of device limitations.
Support is available on the Amplifier Forum in the TI E2E™ Community, where engineers can ask questions and get answers from TI experts.
