I have used AD595 for J and K thermocouple interfacing in many of my designs.It is an excellent chips and works fine.
However it is costly too.
recently I came across AD8495 .
I bit confused it looks pretty much the same except higher sensitivity.
However there is tremendous cost difference.AD8495 is almost 1/3rd of the price of AD595.
Is it a good idea to replace AD595 with AD8495 and get >= performance?
Why AD8495 is cheaper than AD595?mass production,technology change or lower specs?
