ON Semiconductor Unveils New Family of Ultra-Low Power Precision Operational Amplifiers; New zero drift, low voltage devices highly suited to precision applications in industrial, consumer, wireless, IoT and automotive where strong stability across wide operating temperature ranges is mandated
December 17, 2014
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN ), driving energy efficiency innovations, has introduced a family of affordable, precision CMOS operational amplifiers (op amps) that deliver zero drift operation and industry leading quiescent current for front-end amplifier circuits and power management designs. Targeted at industrial, white goods, telecom, wearables, Internet-of-Things (IoT), test equipment and instrumentation applications, the NCS325 and NCS333 op amp devices enhance the accuracy of motor control feedback and power supply control loops, thereby contributing to higher overall system efficiency. These devices are complemented by the new NCV333 automotive-qualified (AEC-Q100 grade 1) op amp offering similar functional performance for power train, braking, electronic power steering, valve controls, fuel pump and fuel injection system applications. Featuring high DC precision parameters, such as the 10 micro Volts (µV) maximum input offset voltage at ambient temperature and the 30 nV/°C of offset temperature drift, make these amplifier devices extremely well optimized for low side current sensing and voltage differential measurement on front-end sensor functions. Minimal voltage variations over temperature along with close to zero offset ensure the efficiency of systems exposed to wide operating temperature ranges without the need for complex software calibration algorithms, resulting in a more manageable design and longer product lifespan.

Technological adoption and use after mass market displacement: The case of the LP record
January 01, 1970
1 Introduction It is not uncommon that technologies which fall victim to displacement during a technological discontinuity continue to enjoy patronage from some customers despite the availability of a newer and 'better' dominant design. Indeed, there is a vibrant retrocomputing community embracing long ago obsolete computer systems, and within it a growing retrogaming sub-community playing equally obsolete computer and arcade games (e.g. Galloway, 2011). Similarly, the Polaroid-type instant film technology has recently made a comeback into consumer photography (e.g. Schneiderman, 2010) and enjoys a dedicated group of users. Moreover, not only is the vinyl long-play record (LP) - long ago superseded first by the compact audiotape cassette (the 'C cassette') and later the compact disc (CD) - still available, but actually has been the fastest-growing music format in the US from 2010 to date (RIAA, 2013).
