Smallest Instrumentation Amp Yet

Weybridge, England: Analog Devices (ADI) claims to have developed the industry’s smallest and lowest power instrumentation amplifier (in-amp). Smaller than the tip of a pencil, the AD8235 in-amp measures 1.6 x 2.0mm.

Combined with its ultra-low power consumption, the device is aimed at power-efficient and portable, lightweight medical devices, and consumer-health products, including home-use electrocardiogram monitors, infusion pumps, and activity-monitoring medical devices, says ADI.
