Single- and Dual-Channel Comparators from Diodes Incorporated Boost Performance

PLANO, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 8, 2014 — 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 introduced enhanced versions of the popular LMV331 and LMV393 single- and dual-channel comparators for use in battery-powered portable devices such as mobile phones and notebook PCs. These general-purpose devices run at a lower voltage, draw less current and offer smaller package options than most industry-standard alternatives.

Operating at a low voltage range of 2.7V to 5.5V, the comparators feature a typical supply current at 5V of only 40µA for the LMV331 and 70µA for the LMV393, and are cost-effective drop-in replacements that help reduce overall system power consumption. The devices feature an extended operating temperature range (-40ºC to +125ºC), making them compatible with industrial system designs.

The LMV393 dual-channel comparator is provided in the industry-standard SO-8 and MSOP-8 packages, while the single-channel LMV331 is offered in the space-saving 5-pin SOT353 and SOT25 formats, helping to shrink circuit size in portable products.

To maximize flexibility, the comparators’ input common-mode voltage range includes ground and extends from -0.1V to +2V while featuring an open-collector output. For further information, visit the Company’s website at www.diodes.com.
