The MAX396/MAX397 low-voltage, CMOS analog multiplexers (muxes) offer low on-resistance (100Ω max), which is matched to within 6Ω between switches and remains flat over the specified signal range (10Ω max). They also offer low leakage over temperature (input off-leakage current less than 1nA at +85°C) and fast switching speeds (transition time less than 250ns). The MAX396 is a 16-channel device, and the MAX397 is a dual 8-channel device. The MAX396/MAX397 are fabricated with Maxim's low-voltage silicon-gate process. Design improvements yield extremely low charge injection (5pC max) and guarantee electrostatic-discharge (ESD) protection greater than 2000V per Method 3015.7. These muxes operate with a single +2.7V to +16V supply or with ±2.7V to ±8V dual supplies, while retaining CMOS-logic input compatibility and fast switching. The MAX396/MAX397 are pin compatible with the industry-standard MAX306/MAX307, DG406/DG407, and DG506A/DG507A.
