MAX44259/MAX44260/MAX44261/MAX44263
1.8V, 15MHz Low-Offset,
Low-Power, Rail-to-Rail I/O Op Amps
General Description
The MAX44259/MAX44260/MAX44261/MAX44263 offer a
unique combination of high speed, precision, low noise,
and low-voltage operation making them ideally suited
for a large number of signal processing functions such
as filtering and amplification of signals in portable and
industrial equipment.
The devices’ rail-to-rail input/outputs and low noise
guarantee maximum dynamic range in demanding appli-
cations such as 12- to 14-bit SAR ADC drivers. Unlike
traditional rail-to-rail input structures, input crossover
distortion is absent due to an optimized input stage with
an ultra-quiet charge pump.
The MAX44260 includes a fast-power-on shutdown mode
for further power savings. The MAX44261 offers a unique
on-demand calibration pin where the user can invoke
self-trimming of the input offset voltage. The MAX44263
is a dual amplifier.
The family of parts operates from a supply range of 1.8V
to 5.5V over the -40NC to +125NC temperature range
and can operate down to 1.7V over the 0NC to +70NC
temperature range. The MAX44259 is offered in a 5-pin
SOT23 package. The MAX44260/MAX44261 are avail-
able in small, 6-pin SC70 packages. The MAX44260 is
also available in a 1mm x 1.5mm thin µDFN (ultra-thin
LGA) package. The MAX44263 is available in a small
8-pin SC70 package.

ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM RATINGS
Note 1: Package thermal resistances were obtained using the method described in JEDEC specification JESD51-7, using a four-layer
board. For detailed information on package thermal considerations, refer to www.maximintegrated.com/thermal-tutorial.
Stresses beyond those listed under “Absolute Maximum Ratings” may cause permanent damage to the device. These are stress ratings only, and functional opera-
tion of the device at these or any other conditions beyond those indicated in the operational sections of the specifications is not implied. Exposure to absolute
maximum rating conditions for extended periods may affect device reliability.

Detailed Description
The MAX44259/MAX44260/MAX44261/MAX44263 are
high-speed low-power op amps ideal for signal process-
ing applications due to the device’s high precision and
low-noise CMOS inputs. The devices self-calibrate on
power-up to eliminate effects of temperature and power-
supply variation.
The MAX44260 also features a low-power shutdown
mode that greatly reduces quiescent current while the
device is not operational and recovers in 30µs.
The MAX44261 features a user-selectable self-calibration
input that shuts down the device and allows it to be reca-
librated at any time. The calibration routine takes 10ms.
Crossover Distortion
These op amps feature a low-noise integrated charge
pump that creates an internal voltage rail 1V above
VDD, which is used to power the input differential
pair of PMOS transistors as shown in Figure 1. Such
a unique architecture eliminates crossover distor-
tion common in traditional CMOS input architecture
(Figure 2), especially when used in a noninverting
configuration, such as for Sallen-Key filters.
The charge pump’s operating frequency lies well above
the unity-gain frequency of the amplifier. Thanks to its high-
frequency operation and ultra-quiet circuitry, the charge
pump generates little noise, does not require external
components, and is entirely transparent to the user.

Applications Information
Power-Up Autotrim
The ICs feature an automatic trim that self-calibrates the
VOS of these devices to less than 50FV of input offset
voltage on power-up. This self-calibration feature allows
the device to eliminate input offset voltage effects due
to power supply and operating temperature variation
simply by cycling its power. The autotrim sequence takes
approximately 10ms to complete and is triggered by an
internal power-on-reset (POR) circuitry. During this time,
the inputs and outputs are put into high impedance and
left unconnected. The MAX44261 can also be forced into
a self-calibration cycle by pulling the CAL input low for
1µs. This input also puts the part into shutdown mode.
Shutdown Operation
The MAX44260 features an active-low shutdown mode
that puts both inputs and outputs into high impedance
and substantially lowers the quiescent current to less
than 1FA. Putting the output into high impedance allows
multiple outputs to be multiplexed onto a single output
line without the additional external buffers. The device
does not self-calibrate when exiting shutdown mode
and retains its power-up trim settings. Figure 3 shows
that the device also recovers from shutdown in under
30Fs.
The MAX44261 features a recalibrate input that acts the
same as the shutdown mode of the MAX44260. However,
when the input is pulled low, the device goes through a
self-calibration sequence again (Figure 3).
The shutdown logic levels of the devices are indepen-
dent of supply, allowing the shutdown feature of the
device to operate off of a 1.8V or 3.3V microcontroller,
regardless of supply voltage.
Rail-to-Rail Input/Output
The input voltage range of the ICs extends 100mV
above VDD and below VSS. The wide input common-
mode voltage range allows the op amp to be used as
a buffer and as a differential amplifier in a wide-variety
of signal processing applications. Output voltage high/
low is designed to be only 50mV above VSS and below
VDD allowing maximum dynamic range in single-supply
applications. The high output current and capacitance
drive capability of the devices make them ideal as an
ADC driver and a line driver.

Chip Information
PROCESS: BiCMOS
Input Bias Current
The ICs feature a high-impedance CMOS input stage
and a specialized ESD structure that allows low-input
bias current operation at low-input, common-mode volt-
ages. Low-input bias current is useful when interfacing
with high-ohmic sensors. It is also beneficial for design-
ing transimpedance amplifiers for photodiode sensors.
This makes these devices ideal for ground-referenced
medical and industrial sensor applications.
Active Filters
The MAX44259/MAX44260/MAX44261/MAX44263 are
ideal for a wide variety of active filter circuits that make
use of their wide bandwidth, rail-to-rail input/output
stages and high-impedance CMOS inputs. The Typical
Application Circuit shows an example Sallen-Key active
filter circuit with a corner frequency of 10kHz. At low
frequencies, the amplifier behaves like a simple low-
distortion noninverting buffer, while its high bandwidth
gives excellent stopband attenuation above its corner
frequency. See the Typical Application Circuit.
Driver for Interfacing with
the MAX11645 ADC
The ICs’ tiny size and low noise makes them a good fit for
driving 12- to 16-bit resolution ADCs in space-constrained
applications. The Typical Application Circuit shows the
MAX44260 amplifier output connected to a lowpass filter
driving the MAX11645 ADC. The MAX11645 is part of a
family of 3V and 5V, 12-bit and 10-bit, 2-channel ADCs.
The MAX11645 offers sample rates up to 94ksps and
measures two single-ended inputs or one differential
input. These ADCs dissipate 670FA at the maximum
sampling rate, but just 6FA at 1ksps and 0.5FA in shut-
down. Offered in the ultra-tiny, 1.9mm x 2.2mm WLP and
FMAX-8 packages, the MAX11645 ADCs are an ideal fit
to pair with the MAX44260/MAX44261/MAX44263 ampli-
fiers in portable applications.
Where higher resolution is required, refer to the MAX1069
(14-bit) and MAX1169 (16-bit) ADC families.
