MANSFIELD, Texas — Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the MCP6N16 Zero-Drift Instrumentation Amplifier from Microchip Technology. Extending its instrumentation amplifier portfolio, the Microchip zero‑drift MCP6N16 incorporates a self‑correcting architecture that maximizes DC performance by enabling ultra-low offset, low-offset drift and superior common-mode and power-supply rejection, while almost eliminating pink noise. This results in a very high accuracy amplifier over both time and temperature. The device is designed for single-supply operation, with rail-to-rail input (no common mode crossover distortion) and output performance.
The Microchip MCP6N16 Zero-Drift Instrumentation Amplifier, available from Mouser Electronics, allows low power consumption while still providing 500KHz bandwidth. The device features a hardware-enable pin for additional power savings, and its low-power operation and shutdown capabilities require less current for the given speed and performance, extending battery life and minimize self-heating.
Operating at a very low 1.8V, the amplifier is capable of draining two dry-cell, 1.5V batteries beyond typical use. With its rail-to-rail input and output operation, the device provides full-range use even in low supply conditions. This functionality provides improved performance across the entire operating voltage range.
