e-Trim™

e-Trim™ is TI’s patented post package trimming architecture. Correction current sources internal to the devices are adjusted during the final package-level manufacturing test. Once the trimming is completed, the gateway to trim circuitry is closed, so the trim control circuit is disabled and the adjustments become permanent.

  • Constant Vos over CM
  • Allows miniature package size
  • Better long-term drift stability
  • Versatile application use cases

MUX-friendly

TI has developed a new input circuitry for high voltage CMOS inputs which does not require the antiparallel diodes for device protection. This technology minimizes the leakage current which in turn helps the amplifier settle faster.

  • Faster settling times while slewing
  • No increase in input bias or decrease in input impedance due to conducting diodes
  • Fast MUX channel switching without compromising precision

Super Beta

 

TI’s Super Beta provides excellent matching of the transistors in the input differential pair. Along with offset trim methodologies, op amps with Super Beta have a very low offset voltage, offset drift and input bias current. Thanks to a very low input bias current, the current noise density is much lower and the input impedance is much higher than any other bipolar technology, including op amps with input bias cancellation circuits.

  • Faster settling times while slewing
  • No increase in input bias or decrease in input impedance due to conducting diodes
  • Fast MUX channel switching without compromising precision
