ADC driver amplifiers perform many important functions, including buffering, amplitude scaling, single-ended-to-differential and differential-to-single-ended conversion, common-mode offset adjustment, and filtering. ADC drivers have become essential signal conditioning elements in data conversion stages and are key factors in enabling the ADC function to achieve its rated performance.
ADI offers a complete portfolio of driver amplifiers covering a wide-range of SAR, pipeline, and sigma-delta A/D converter applications.
