 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

hello, can you please help me with recommendations for an op amp that will satisfy the following criteria?  I'm new to op amps, so please correct as needed:

1.  +Vss / -Vss can be supplied by the Arduino with no modifications (i believe this is 5V?)
2.  Input is simple two wire (+/-) that ranges between 0mv and 55mV
3.  Output needs to be suitable for an analog in on the Arduino (ideally 0v to 5v?, but any decent range in between works too)

Thanks.

I keep coming back to the 7611.

• WideOperatingVoltageRange........... ±1Vto±8V
• HighInputImpedance ...................... 1012Ω
• Programmable Power Consumption . . . . . Low as 20μW
• InputCurrentLowerThanBIFETs...........1pA(Typ)
• OutputVoltageSwing ................... V+andV-
• InputCommonModeVoltageRangeGreaterThanSupply Rails (ICL7612)

Beat that for the price! I already know someone will smiley-wink

There are 10 kinds of people, those who know binary, and those who don't.

HighInputImpedance ...................... 1012Ω

I read that and thought, "Huh, did the definition of high input impedance change while I slept last night?"  Then I looked at the datasheet and saw that it was 1012Ω and realized it was just a copy/paste format error. 1 teraohms definitely qualifies as high input impedance.

Ah yes, 1012 would be an unusually precise (and low) input impedance.
