SOT23, Very High Precision, 3V/5V Rail-to-Rail Op Amps MAX4236/MAX4237 General Description Features
The MAX4236/MAX4237 are high-precision op amps ♦
Ultra-Low Offset Voltage
that feature an exceptionally low offset voltage and off-
20µV (max) at +25°C (Grade A)
set voltage temperature coefficient without using any
50µV (max) at +25°C (Grade B, 6-Pin SOT23)
chopper techniques. The MAX4236 and MAX4237 have a typical large-signal, open-loop voltage gain of 120dB. ♦
Ultra-Low Offset Voltage Drift
These devices have an ultra-low input-bias current of
2µV/°C (max) (Grade A)
1pA. The MAX4236 is unity-gain stable with a gain-
4.5µV/°C (max) (Grade B, 6-Pin SOT23)
bandwidth product of 1.7MHz, while the MAX4237 is
5.5µV/°C (max) (6-Pin SOT23)
stable for closed-loop gains greater than 5V/V with a ♦
Ultra-Low 1pA Input Bias Current
gain-bandwidth product of 7.5MHz. Both devices have a shutdown function in which the quiescent current is ♦
High Open-Loop Voltage Gain: 110dB (min)
reduced to less than 0.1µA, and the amplifier output is
(RL = 100k

forced into a high-impedance state. ♦
Compatible with +3V and +5V Single-Supply
The input common-mode range of the MAX4236/
Power Systems
MAX4237 extends below the negative supply range, and the output swings Rail-to-Rail®. These features make the ♦
