SC70, 5ns, Low-Power, Single-Supply, Precision TTL Comparators

5ns, Low-Power, Single-Supply, Precision TTL Comparators in SC70 and SOT23 Packages

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX9010/MAX9011/MAX9013 single and MAX9012 dual, high-speed comparators operate from a single 4.5V to 5.5V power supply and feature low-current consumption. They have precision differential inputs and TTL outputs. They feature short propagation delay (5ns, typ), low-supply current, and a wide common-mode input range that includes ground. They are ideal for low-power, high-speed, single-supply applications.

The comparator outputs remain stable through the linear region when driven with slow-moving or low input-overdrive signals, eliminating the output instability common to other high-speed comparators. The input voltage range extends to 200mV below ground with no output phase reversal. The MAX9013 features complementary outputs and both the MAX9011/MAX9013 have a latch enable input (LE). The MAX9013 is an improved plug-in replacement for the industry-standard MAX913 and LT1016/LT1116, offering lower power and higher speed when used in a single 5V supply application.

For space-critical designs, the single MAX9010 is available in the tiny 6-pin SC70 package. The single MAX9011 is available in a space-saving 6-pin SOT23 package. The dual MAX9012 and the single MAX9013 are available in 8-pin µMAX® and 8-pin SO packages. All products in the family are guaranteed over the extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
