Microchip – MCP6N16: Zero-Drift Instrumentation Amplifier Provides Low Power and High Accuracy


The MCP6N16 is a single zero-drift instrumentation amplifier (INA) with enable pin (EN) and three minimum gain options (GMIN). The self-correcting architecture maximizes DC performance by enabling ultra low offset, low offset drift, and superior common-mode and power supply rejection, while eliminating the adverse effects of 1/f noise. The low power operation and shutdown capability requires less current for the given speed and performance, which extends battery life and leads to less self heating.
