Xicor Announces Precision 2.5V FGA Voltage References; New X60008-25 Family Features +/-0.5mV Accuracy, 3 ppm/degrees C Temp-Co and 500nA ISUPPLY

MILPITAS, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 12, 2004— Xicor(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: XICO), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, today announced new 2.5V additions to its rapidly expanding line of ultra low power precision voltage references. The X60008-25 family of voltage references feature guaranteed initial accuracy as low as +/-0.5mV, temperature coefficients as tight as 3 ppm/degrees C and 10 ppm/1,000 Hrs long-term stability. In addition, the X60008-25 family consumes only 500 nA of supply current.

"With the release of the 2.5V devices, Xicor continues to expand its voltage reference product line with devices that enable designers to achieve new performance standards for precision and portable system designs," commented Jules Farago, marketing manager. "The accuracy and thermal stability performance of our X60008-25 family plus the low 500 nA power consumption makes it an ideal companion to high resolution, low power data conversion systems. Available 2.5V references manufactured in other technologies that approach the performance of the X60008-25 family often demand significant premiums in power consumption and cost. Xicor eliminates the need to compromise by providing a unique combination of initial accuracy, temperature coefficient, long term stability and ultra low power consumption at a reasonable cost."

The X60008BIS8-25, X60008CIS8-25 and X60008DIS8-25 in 8-lead SOIC are now available off the shelf with 1k unit prices starting at $6.15, $4.55, and $3.15 respectively.
