AD8044:  Quad 150 MHz Rail-to-Rail Amplifier

Product Details

The AD8044 is a quad low power, voltage feedback, high speed amplifier designed to operate on +3 V, +5 V or ±5 V supplies. It has true single-supply capability with an input voltage range extending 200 mV below the negative rail and within 1 V of the positive rail.

The output voltage swing extends to within 25 mV of each rail, providing the maximum output dynamic range. Additionally, it features gain flatness of 0.1 dB to 12 MHz while offering differential gain and phase error of 0.04% and 0.22° on a single +5 V supply. This makes the AD8044 ideal for video electronics such as cameras, video switchers or any high speed portable equipment. The AD8044's low distortion and fast settling make it ideal for active filter applications.

The AD8044 offers low power supply current of 13.1 mA max and can run on a single +3.3 V power supply. These features are ideally suited for portable and battery powered applications where size and power are critical.

The wide bandwidth of 150 MHz along with 170 V/µs of slew rate on a single +5 V supply make the AD8044 useful in many general purpose, high speed applications where dual power supplies of up to ±6 V and single supplies from +3 V to +12 V are needed. The AD8044 is available in 14-pin plastic DIP and SOIC.

AN-417: Fast Rail-to-Rail Operational Amplifiers Ease Design Constraints in Low Voltage High Speed Systems  (pdf, 228 kB)
Movement towards lower power supply voltages is driven by the demand that systems consume less and less power coupled with the desire to reduce the number of power supply voltages in the system. The following applications are discussed: Single-Ended and Differential Input ADC Input Circuits, Video Line Driver, Active Filter, HDSL Transceiver, and Transformer Drive Circuits.
