NATIONAL SEMICONDUCTOR INTRODUCES SIMPLEST AMPLIFIER GAIN BLOCK SOLUTION IN SC70-5 PACKAGING

Single Chip Delivers Size, Low Cost, Simplicity and Performance Edge

Dec 20, 1999

December 20, 1999- National Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE:NSM) today announced a new 2.7V Op Amp Family called the LMV100s. The LMV100 fixed-gain block family integrates a rail-to-rail output OpAmp and up to four internal gain-setting resistors. The LMV111 is a V+/2 input voltage bias circuit. The LMV101, LMV102, LMV105 and the LMV110 provide the fixed inverting gains of -1, -2, -5, and -10. The family comes in the ultra small SC70-5 package. These enhance and expand National's innovative LMV321 product portfolio. The LMV101/102/105/110/111 integrated fixed-gain amplifier series is the most cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for a myriad of applications where low voltage operation, low power consumption or space saving is critical.

According to Dennis Swan, marketing manager, "We're enabling simplicity, low cost, and unprecedented convenience. The first devices target all analog systems, especially in the consumer, communications and computing markets. This new family reduces external component count and board size via innovation in the 2mm x 2mm SC70-5 package. The demand for SC70-5 packaged OpAmp solutions continues to grow as the benefits of fast, small, cost-effective functional solutions are increasingly recognized, particularly in small-form-factor applications and products," says Swan.

The LMV100s Family guarantees excellent performance while power consumption is <170mµA with the typical power consumption at 80mµA. The LMV101, for example, has a typical accuracy gain of 2% and 160mA output current at >1.5MHz bandwidth. These small, innovative and easy-to-use devices deliver substantial performance and power benefits for critical circuit applications. The LMV100s are offered in two convenient package types, the SC70-5 and TinyPak SOT23-5.

Price and Availability
The LMV100s Family is available in two convenient package types, the SC70-5 and TinyPak SOT23-5. In thousand piece quantities, prices start at $ .32. For more information on the LMV101, 102, 105, 110, visit our web sites at LMV101, LMV102, LMV105, LMV110, and for information on the LMV111, visit LMV111. All products are immediately available in high volume.
