The OPA129 is an ultra-low bias current monolithic operational amplifier offered in an 8-pin PDIP and SO-8 package. Using advanced geometry dielectrically-isolated FET (Difet®) inputs, this monolithic amplifier achieves a high performance level.
Difet fabrication eliminates isolation-junction leakage currentthe main contributor to input bias current with conventional monolithic FETs. This reduces input bias current by a factor of 10 to 100. Very low input bias current can be achieved without resorting to small-geometry FETs or CMOS designs which can suffer from much larger offset voltage, voltage noise, drift, and poor power supply rejection.
The OPA129 special pinout eliminates leakage current that occurs with other op amps. Pins 1 and 4 have no internal connection, allowing circuit board guard traceseven with the surface-mount package version.
OPA129 is available in 8-pin DIP and SO packages, specified for operation from -40°C to +85°C.
