OPA4251

Single-Supply, MicroPOWER
OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS
OPA241 Family optimized for +5V supply. DESCRIPTION
OPA251 Family optimized for 15V supply. The OPA241 series and OPA251 series are specifically
designed for battery powered, portable applications. In addi-
tion to very low power consumption (25A), these amplifi-
ers feature low offset voltage, rail-to-rail output swing, high
FEATURES common-mode rejection, and high open-loop gain.
MicroPOWER: IQ = 25A The OPA241 series is optimized for operation at low power
SINGLE-SUPPLY OPERATION supply voltage while the OPA251 series is optimized for
RAIL-TO-RAIL OUTPUT (within 50mV) high power supplies. Both can operate from either single
(+2.7V to +36V) or dual supplies (1.35V to 18V). The
WIDE SUPPLY RANGE
input common-mode voltage range extends 200mV below
Single Supply: +2.7V to +36V
the negative supplyideal for single-supply applications.
Dual Supply: 1.35V to 18V
LOW OFFSET VOLTAGE: 250V max They are unity-gain stable and can drive large capacitive
loads. Special design considerations assure that these prod-
HIGH COMMON-MODE REJECTION: 124dB
ucts are easy to use. High performance is maintained as the
HIGH OPEN-LOOP GAIN: 128dB amplifiers swing to their specified limits. Because the initial
SINGLE, DUAL, AND QUAD offset voltage (250V max) is so low, user adjustment is
usually not required. However, external trim pins are pro-
vided for special applications (single versions only).
APPLICATIONS The OPA241 and OPA251 (single versions) are available
BATTERY OPERATED INSTRUMENTS in standard 8-pin DIP and SO-8 surface-mount packages.
PORTABLE DEVICES The OPA2241 and OPA2251 (dual versions) come in 8-pin
DIP and SO-8 surface-mount packages. The OPA4241 and
MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS
OPA4251 (quad versions) are available in 14-pin DIP and
TEST EQUIPMENT SO-14 surface-mount packages. All are fully specified
from 40C to +85C and operate from 55C to +125C.

information and additional product content details.
TBD: The Pb-Free/Green conversion plan has not been defined.
Pb-Free (RoHS): TI's terms "Lead-Free" or "Pb-Free" mean semiconductor products that are compatible with the current RoHS requirements for all 6 substances, including the requirement that
lead not exceed 0.1% by weight in homogeneous materials. Where designed to be soldered at high temperatures, TI Pb-Free products are suitable for use in specified lead-free processes.
Pb-Free (RoHS Exempt): This component has a RoHS exemption for either 1) lead-based flip-chip solder bumps used between the die and package, or 2) lead-based die adhesive used between
the die and leadframe. The component is otherwise considered Pb-Free (RoHS compatible) as defined above.
Green (RoHS & no Sb/Br): TI defines "Green" to mean Pb-Free (RoHS compatible), and free of Bromine (Br) and Antimony (Sb) based flame retardants (Br or Sb do not exceed 0.1% by weight
in homogeneous material)
