TI Offers Industry's Fastest Nanopower Comparator in SOT23 for Low-Voltage Applications

Dec 19, 2002

TUCSON, Ariz. (Dec. 19, 2002) -- Targeting low-voltage, power-sensitive applications that require voltage level detection, Texas Instruments (TI) Incorporated (NYSE:TXN) today announced a family of push-pull output comparators from the company´s Burr-Brown product line. Featuring nanopower (1.2uA), fast response time (6us), SOT23 packaging and 1.8V operation, the devices are ideal for portable and battery-operated systems, such as medical equipment, wireless security systems, handheld instruments, temperature measurement and remote control systems.
