Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today announced the introduction of a complete family of dual gate, advanced, ultra-low power CMOS logic devices. Designed for low voltage, low energy operation, the miniature 74AUP2G family extends the battery cell lifetime of a variety of hand-held consumer electronics, including cell phones, e-book readers and tablets.
With a leakage current of less than 0.9µA, the logic devices’ static power consumption is low, and a typical power dissipation capacitance of 6pF at 3.6V means dynamic power consumption is also minimized. Operating over the 0.8V to 3.6V range, the 74AUP2G family enables circuit supplies to be reduced to lowest practical levels.
The ultra-low power 74AUP2G logic family is initially comprised of seven different dual gate devices offering combinations of inversion and buffering functions: inverters; inverters with open-drain output; buffers; buffers with open-drain output; Schmitt trigger inverters and Schmitt trigger buffers.
To more closely meet the requirements of next generation product sizing and manufacturing processes, each dual gate logic device is provided in a choice of three different leadless packages: DFN0910, DFN1010 and DFN1410. Measuring just 0.9mm x 1.0mm x 0.35mm, the DFN0910 is one of the world’s smallest six-pin packages, enabling both space and weight savings.
