Description

The MAX478 and MAX479 are dual and quad micro-power, precision op amps available in 8-pin and 14-pin DIP and small-outline packages, respectively. Both devices feature an extremely low, 17µA max supply current per op amp, 70µV max offset voltage, 2.2µV/°C max offset voltage drift (0.5µV/°C typ), and 250pA max input offset current.

The MAX478 and MAX479 operate from a single supply. The input voltage range includes ground, and the output swings to within a few millivolts of ground, which eliminates pull-down resistors and saves power.

Both devices are optimized for single 3V and 5V supply operation, with guaranteed specifications at each supply voltage. Specifications for ±15V operation are also provided.
