Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) introduced the ADA4096-2 dual, precision-micropower operational amplifier (op amp) -- the industry's first precision op amp with more than ±30 V of integrated input over-voltage protection (OVP). This industry-leading level of internal input OVP, which extends 32 V above and below the supply rails, means that analog designers using the ADA4096-2 can eliminate or minimize their external OVP solutions to save product development time, component cost and board space. The ADA4096-2 improves overall system accuracy and eases error budgeting and analysis by eliminating the uncontrolled and poorly specified error sources associated with external input OVP components while delivering a higher level of over-voltage protection in a robust single-chip design. The ADA4096-2 draws only 60 uA of power per amplifier and features twice the bandwidth and half the voltage noise of its competitors. This makes it a good choice for analog engineers designing industrial sensors and other applications needing precision signal handling, high accuracy and ultra-low power consumption such as process controls, high density or loop-powered industrial instrumentation and battery-powered medical devices where voltage levels can drop or spike quickly.
