Oscilloscopes and Scope Meters
ADI's portfolio of high-impedance, FET-input amplifiers, variable-gain amplifiers, ADC drivers, ADCs, clock distribution, high-speed comparators for trigger circuits, and embedded processors enable cutting-edge digital oscilloscope designs.
The ADA4817-1 (single) and ADA4817-2 (dual) FastFET™ amplifiers are unity-gain stable, ultrahigh speed, voltage feedback amplifiers with FET inputs. These amplifiers were developed with the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary eXtra fast complementary bipolar (XFCB) process, which allows the amplifiers to achieve ultralow noise (4 nV/√Hz; 2.5 fA/√Hz) as well as very high input impedances.
With 1.3 pF of input capacitance, low noise (4 nV/√Hz), low offset voltage (2 mV maximum), and 1050 MHz −3 dB bandwidth, the ADA4817-1/ADA4817-2 are ideal for data acquisition front ends as well as wideband transimpedance applications, such as photodiode preamps.
With a wide supply voltage range from 5 V to 10 V and the ability to operate on either single or dual supplies, the ADA4817-1/ADA4817-2 are designed to work in a variety of applications including active filtering and ADC driving.
The ADA4817-1 is available in a 3 mm × 3 mm, 8-lead LFCSP and 8-lead SOIC, and the ADA4817-2 is available in a 4 mm × 4 mm, 16-lead LFCSP. These packages feature a low distortion pinout that improves second harmonic distortion and simplifies circuit board layout. They also feature an exposed paddle that provides a low thermal resistance path to the printed circuit board (PCB). This enables more efficient heat transfer and increases reliability. These products are rated to work over the extended industrial temperature range (−40°C to +105°C).

The AD5624R/AD5644R/AD5664R have an on-chip reference. The AD56x4R-3 has a 1.25 V, 5 ppm/°C reference, giving a full-scale output range of 2.5 V; the AD56x4R-5 has a 2.5 V, 5 ppm/°C reference giving a full-scale output range of 5 V. The on-chip reference is off at power-up, allowing the use of an external refer-ence; all devices can be operated from a single 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply. The internal reference is enabled via a software write.
The part incorporates a power-on reset circuit that ensures the DAC output powers up to 0 V and remains there until a valid write takes place. The part contains a per-channel power-down feature that reduces the current consumption of the device to 480 nA at 5 V and provides software-selectable output loads while in power-down mode. The low power consumption of this part in normal operation makes it ideally suited to portable battery-operated equipment.
The AD5624R/AD5644R/AD5664R use a versatile 3-wire serial interface that operates at clock rates up to 50 MHz, and is compatible with standard SPI, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, and DSP interface standards. The on-chip precision output amplifier enables rail-to-rail output swing.

The ADA4930-1/ADA4930-2 are very low noise, low distortion, high speed differential amplifiers. They are an ideal choice for driving 1.8 V high performance ADCs with resolutions up to 14 bits from dc to 70 MHz. The adjustable output common mode allows the ADA4930-1/ADA4930-2 to match the input of the ADC. The internal common-mode feedback loop provides exceptional output balance, suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products, and dc level translation.
With the ADA4930-1/ADA4930-2, differential gain configurations are easily realized with a simple external feedback network of four resistors determining the closed-loop gain of the amplifier.
The ADA4930-1/ADA4930-2 are fabricated using Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary silicon-germanium (SiGe), complementary bipolar process, enabling them to achieve very low levels of distortion with an input voltage noise of only 1.2 nV/√Hz.
The low dc offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4930-1/ADA4930-2 make them well suited for a wide variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications. The ADA4930-1 is available in a Pb-free, 3 mm × 3 mm 16-lead LFCSP, and the ADA4930-2 is available in a Pb-free, 4 mm × 4 mm 24-lead LFCSP. The pinout has been optimized to facilitate printed circuit board (PCB) layout and minimize distortion. The ADA4930-1 is specified to operate over the −40°C to +105°C temperature range, and the ADA4930-2 is specified to operate over the −40°C to +105°C temperature range for 3.3 V or 5 V supply voltages.
