Accurate, Low-Cost, Easy-to-Use IC Multiplier

The AD534 Has Differential Inputs, Many Potential Applications; Laser-Trimmed on the Wafer to Accuracy Within 0.25% (AD534L)

The Analog Devices AD534 is a monolithic laser-trimmed multiplier having accuracy specifications conventionally associated with discrete modules. The AD534L guarantees an overall error of less than 0.25% of full scale, while the AD534J is within 1.0%. Read full article

Barrie Gilbert, the first ADI Fellow, has “spent a lifetime in the pursuit of analog elegance.” He joined Analog Devices in 1972, was appointed ADI Fellow in 1979, and manages the Northwest Labs in Beaverton, Oregon. Barrie was born in Bournemouth, England, in 1937. Before joining ADI, he worked with first-generation transistors at SRDE in 1954, and at Mullard, Ltd.; later at Tektronix and Plessey Research Labs. Barrie is an IEEE Fellow (1984) and has received numerous awards. He has some 50 issued patents, has authored about 40 papers, is coauthor of several books, and is a reviewer for several journals. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Engineering from Oregon State University in 1997.
