These op amps have an output stage that swings within
30mV of either supply rail to maximize the signal dynamic
range in low supply applications. The input common mode
range extends to the negative supply. They are fully specified on 3V and 5V, and an HV version guarantees operation
on supplies up to ±5V.
The LTC6240 is available in the 8-pin SO and the 5-pin SOT23 packages. The LTC6241 is available in the 8-pin SO, and
for compact designs it is packaged in a tiny dual fine pitch
leadless (DFN) package. The LTC6242 is available in the
16-pin SSOP as well as the 5mm × 3mm DFN package.
APPLICATIONS
n
The LTC®6240/6241/LTC6242 are single, dual and quad
low noise, low offset, rail-to-rail output, unity gain stable
CMOS op amps that feature 1pA of input bias current. Input
bias current is guaranteed to be 1pA max on the single
LTC6240. The 0.1Hz to 10Hz noise of only 550nVP-P, along
with an offset of just 125μV are significant improvements
over traditional CMOS op amps. Additionally, noise is
guaranteed to be less than 10nV/√Hz at 1kHz. An 18MHz
gain bandwidth, and 10V/μs slew rate, along with the wide
supply range and low input capacitance, make them perfect
for use as fast signal processing amplifiers.

LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242
ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS
Note 1: Stresses beyond those listed under Absolute Maximum Ratings
may cause permanent damage to the device. Exposure to any Absolute
Maximum Rating condition for extended periods may affect device
reliability and lifetime.
Note 2: A heat sink may be required to keep the junction temperature
below the absolute maximum rating when the output is shorted
indefinitely.
Note 3: The LTC6240C/LTC6240HVC/LTC6241C/LTC6241HVC, LTC6242C/
LTC6242HVC are guaranteed to meet specified performance from 0°C to
70°C. They are designed, characterized and expected to meet specified
performance from –40°C to 85°C, but are not tested or QA sampled at
these temperatures. The LTC6240I/LTC6240HVI, LTC6241I/LTC6241HVI,
LTC6242I/LTC6242HVI are guaranteed to meet specified performance
from –40°C to 85°C. All versions of the LTC6240H/LTC6241H/LTC6242H
are guaranteed to meet specified performance from –40°C to 125°C.
Note 4: ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) sensitive device. ESD protection
devices are used extensively internal to the LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242;
however, high electrostatic discharge can damage or degrade the device.
Use proper ESD handling precautions.
Note 5: Matching parameters are the difference between the two amplifiers
A and D and between B and C of the LTC6242; between the two amplifiers
of the LTC6241. CMRR and PSRR match are defined as follows: CMRR
and PSRR are measured in μV/V on the matched amplifiers. The difference
is calculated between the matching sides in μV/V. The result is converted
to dB.
Note 6: This parameter is not 100% tested.
Note 7: Bias current at TA = 25°C is 100% tested and guaranteed for the
LTC6240 in the S8 package. The LTC6240S5, LTC6241 and LTC6242 are
expected to achieve the same performance as the LTC6240S8. All parts are
guaranteed to meet specifications over temperature.
Note 8: Current noise is calculated from the formula: in = (2qIB)1/2 where
q = 1.6 × 10–19 coulomb. The noise of source resistors up to 50GΩ
dominates the contribution of current noise. See also Typical Performance
Characteristics curve Noise Current vs Frequency.
Note 9: Output voltage swings are measured between the output and
power supply rails.
Note 10: Minimum supply voltage is guaranteed by the power supply
rejection ratio test.
Note 11: Slew rate is measured in a gain of –2 with RF = 1k and RG =
500Ω. On the LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242, VS = ±2.5V, VIN is ±1V and
VOUT slew rate is measured between –1V and +1V. On the LTC6240HV/
LTC6241HV/LTC6242HV, VIN is ±2V and VOUT slew rate is measured
between –2V and +2V.
Note 12: Full-power bandwidth is calculated from the slew rate:
FPBW = SR/πVP-P.

LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242
APPLICATIONS INFORMATION
Amplifier Characteristics
The amplifier input bias current is the leakage current of
these ESD diodes. This leakage is a function of the temperature and common mode voltage of the amplifier, as shown
in the Typical Performance Characteristics curves.
Figure 1 is a simplified schematic of the amplifier, which
has a pair of low noise input transistors M1 and M2. A
simple folded cascode Q1, Q2 and R1, R2 allow the input
stage to swing to the negative rail, while performing level
shift to the differential drive generator. Low offset voltage
is accomplished by laser trimming the input stage.
Noise
The LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242 exhibit exceptionally
low 1/f noise in the 0.1Hz to 10Hz region. This 550nVP-P
noise allows these op amps to be used in a wide variety
of high impedance low frequency applications, where
zero-drift amplifiers might be inappropriate due to their
charge injection.
Capacitor C1 reduces the unity cross frequency and improves the frequency stability without degrading the gain
bandwidth of the amplifier. Capacitor CM sets the overall
amplifier gain bandwidth. The differential drive generator
supplies signals to transistors M3 and M4 that swing the
output from rail-to-rail.
In the frequency region above 1kHz the LTC6240/LTC6241/
LTC6242 also show good noise voltage performance. In
this frequency region, noise can easily be dominated by
the total source resistance of the particular application.
Specifically, these amplifiers exhibit the noise of a 3.1kΩ
resistor, meaning it is desirable to keep the source and
feedback resistance at or below this value, i.e. RS + RG||RFB
≤ 3.1kΩ. Above this total source impedance, the noise
voltage is not dominated by the amplifier.
The photo of Figure 2 shows the output response to an
input overdrive with the amplifier connected as a voltage
follower. If the negative going input signal is less than
a diode drop below V–, no phase inversion occurs. For
input signals greater than a diode drop below V–, limit the
current to 3mA with a series resistor RS to avoid phase
inversion.
Noise current can be estimated from the expression in =
√2qIB, where q = 1.6 • 10–19 coulombs. Equating √4kTRΔf
and R√2qIBΔf shows that for source resistors below 50GΩ
the amplifier noise is dominated by the source resistance.
See the Typical Performance Characteristics curve Noise
Current vs Frequency.
ESD
The LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242 have reverse-biased ESD
protection diodes on all input and outputs as shown in
Figure 1. If these pins are forced beyond either supply,
unlimited current will flow through these diodes. If the
current is transient and limited to one hundred milliamps
or less, no damage to the device will occur.

LTC6240/LTC6241/LTC6242
APPLICATIONS INFORMATION
Proprietary design techniques are used to obtain simultaneous low 1/f noise and low input capacitance. Low input
capacitance is important when the amplifier is used with
high value source and feedback resistors. High frequency
noise from the amplifier tail current source, ITAIL in Figure 1, couples through the input capacitance and appears
across these large source and feedback resistors. As an
example, the photodiode amplifier of Figure 15 on the last
page of this data sheet shows the noise results from the
LTC6241 and the results of a competitive CMOS amplifier.
The LTC6241 output is the ideal noise of a 1MΩ resistor
at room temperature, 130nV√Hz.

The circuit shown in Figure 3 can be used to achieve even
lower noise voltage. By paralleling 4 amplifiers the noise
voltage can be lowered by √4, or half as much noise. The
–
√ comes about from an RMS summing of uncorrelated
noise sources. This circuit maintains extremely high input
resistance, and has a 250Ω output resistance. For lower
output resistance, a buffer amplifier can be added without
influencing the noise.
Stability
The good noise performance of these op amps can be attributed to large input devices in the differential pair. Above
several hundred kilohertz, the input capacitance rises and
can cause amplifier stability problems if left unchecked.
When the feedback around the op amp is resistive (RF), a
pole will be created with RF, the source resistance, source
capacitance (RS, CS), and the amplifier input capacitance.
In low gain configurations and with RF and RS in even
the kilohm range (Figure 4), this pole can create excess
phase shift and possibly oscillation. A small capacitor CF
in parallel with RF eliminates this problem.

The circuit on the first page of the data sheet is a low noise
single-ended input to differential output amplifier, with a
200k input impedance. The very low input bias current
of the LTC6241 allows for these large input and feedback
resistors. The 200k resistors, R1 and R2, along with C1 and
C2 set the –3dB bandwidth to 80kHz. Capacitor C3 is used
to cancel effects of input capacitance, while C4 adds phase
lead to compensate the phase lag of the second amplifier.

DIFFERENTIAL OUTPUT VOLTAGE DENSITY (nV/√Hz)
The op amp’s good input offset voltage match and low
input bias current means that the typical differential output
offset voltage is less than 40μV. A noise spectrum plot of
the differential output is shown in Figure 5.

The guard ring should extend as far as necessary to shield
the high impedance signal from any and all leakage paths.
Figure 6 shows the use of a guard ring on the LTC6241 in
a unity gain configuration. In this case the guard ring is
connected to the output and is shielding the high impedance
noninverting input from V–. Figure 7 shows the inverting
gain configuration.
A Digitally Programmable AC Difference Amplifier

The LTC6241 configured as a difference amplifier, can be
combined with a programmable gain amplifier (PGA) to
obtain a low noise high speed programmable difference
amplifier. Figure 8 shows the LTC6241 based as a singlesupply AC amplifier. One LTC6241 op amp is used at the
circuit’s input as a standard four resistor difference amplifier.

OVER THE GUARD RING
Achieving Low Input Bias Current
The DD package is leadless and makes contact to the PCB
beneath the package. Solder flux used during the attachment of the part to the PCB can create leakage current
paths and can degrade the input bias current performance
of the part. All inputs are susceptible because the backside
paddle is connected to V– internally. As the input voltage
changes or if V– changes, a leakage path can be formed
and alter the observed input bias current. For lowest bias
current, use the LTC6240/LTC6241 in the SO-8 and provide
a guard ring around the inputs that are tied to a potential
near the input voltage.

Layout Considerations and a PCB Guard Ring
In high source impedance applications such as pH probes,
photodiodes, strain gauges, et cetera, the low input bias
current of these parts requires a clean board layout to
minimize additional leakage current into a high impedance
signal node. A mere 100GΩ of PC board resistance
between a 5V supply trace and an input trace adds 50pA
of leakage current, far greater then the input bias current
of the operational amplifier. A guard ring around the high
impedance input traces driven by a low impedance source
equal to the input voltage prevents such leakage problems.

The low bias current and current noise of the LTC6241
allow the use of high valued input resistors, 100k or
greater. Resistors R1, R2, R3 and R4 are equal and the
gain of the difference amplifier is one. An LTC6910-2 PGA
amplifies the difference amplifier output with inverting
gains of –1, –2, –4, –8, –16, –32 and –64. The second
LTC6241 op amp is used as an integrator to set the DC
output voltage equal to the LT6650 reference voltage VREF.
The integrator drives the PGA analog ground to provide
a feedback loop, in addition to blocking any DC voltage
through the PGA. The reference voltage of the LT6650
can be set to a voltage from 400mV to V+ – 350mV with
resistors R5 and R6. If R6 is 20k or less, the error due

The performance of this circuit is suited for the demanding transducer signal conditioning situations such as high

with the input chopper, proper amplitude and polarity
information is presented to A2, the DC output amplifier.
This stage integrates the square wave into a DC voltage,
providing the output. The output is divided down (R2 and
R1) and fed back to the input chopper where it serves as
a zero signal reference. Gain, in this case 1000, is set by
the R1-R2 ratio. Because A1 is AC coupled, its DC offset
and drift do not affect the overall circuit offset, resulting
in the extremely low offset and drift noted. The JFETs
have an input RC damper that minimizes offset voltage
contribution due to parasitic switch behavior, resulting in
the 1μV offset specification.
The LTC1799’s output is divided down to form a 2-phase
925Hz square wave clock. This frequency, harmonically
unrelated to 60Hz, provides excellent immunity to harmonic
beating or mixing effects which could cause instabilities.
S1 and S2 receive complementary drive, causing A1 to
see a chopped version of the input voltage. A1’s square
wave output is synchronously demodulated by S3 and
S4. Because these switches are synchronously driven

by the sensor is forced across the feedback capacitor
by the op amp action. Because the feedback capacitor
is 100 times smaller than the sensor, it will be forced to
100 times what would have been the sensor’s open circuit
voltage. So the circuit gain is 100. The benefit of this approach is that the signal gain of the circuit is independent
of any cable capacitance introduced between the sensor
and the amplifier. Hence this circuit is favored for remote
accelerometers where the cable length may vary. Difficulties
with the circuit are inaccuracy of the gain setting with the
small capacitor, and low frequency cutoff due to the bias
resistor working into the small feedback capacitor.

Figure 10. Noise in a 0.1Hz to 10Hz Bandwidth
Low Noise Shock Sensor Amplifiers
Figures 11 and 12 show the amplifiers realizing two different approaches to amplifying signals from a capacitive
sensor. The sensor in both cases is a 770pF piezoelectric
shock sensor accelerometer, which generates charge under
physical acceleration.
Figure 11 shows the classical “charge amplifier” approach.
The LTC6240 is in the inverting configuration so the sensor
looks into a virtual ground. All of the charge generated
Figure 12 shows a noninverting amplifier approach. This
approach has many advantages. First of all, the gain is set
accurately with resistors rather than with a small capacitor. Second, the low frequency cutoff is dictated by the
bias resistor working into the large 770pF sensor, rather
than into a small feedback capacitor, for lower frequency
response. Third, the noninverting topology can be paralleled and summed (as shown) for scalable reductions in
voltage noise. The only drawback to this circuit is that the
parasitic capacitance at the input reduces the gain slightly.
This circuit is favored in cases where parasitic input
capacitances such as traces and cables will be relatively
small and invariant.

APPLICATIONS INFORMATION
1M Transimpedance Amplifier with 43nV/√Hz
Output Noise
By achieving an output swing of 50V before attenuation,
the circuit provides an output swing to 5V after attenuation. The 10M resistor sets the gain of the TIA stage
and has a noise density of 400nV/√Hz. After attenuation,
the effective TIA gain drops to 1M while the noise floor
drops to 40nV/√Hz, which clearly dominates the observed
43nV/√Hz. Note the additional benefit that the offset voltage
of the op amp is divided by 10. Worst-case output offset
for this circuit is 150μV over temperature.
In a normal 1M transimpedance amplifier, like that shown
on the back page of this data sheet, the output noise density
must be at least 130nV/√Hz at room temperature. This is
true even should the op amp be perfectly noiseless, because
the 1M resistor provides 130nV/√Hz of voltage noise at
room temperature independently of the op amp.
The circuit of Figure 13 provides an overall transimpedance
gain of 1MΩ, but it has an output noise density of only
43nV/√Hz, about 1/3 of the normal transimpedance amplifier. It does this by taking a higher initial transimpedance
gain of 10M and then attenuating by a factor of 10. The
transistor section provides voltage gain and works on a
54V supply voltage to guarantee adequate output swing.
Reference Buffer
Figure 14 shows the LTC6240 being utilized as a buffer
in conjunction with the LT1019 reference. The passive
R-C filter attenuates the reference noise and the LTC6240
provides a low noise buffer, resulting in an output noise
of 8nV/√Hz.
