AD8013:  Single Supply, Low Power, Triple Video Amplifier

Product Details

The AD8013 is a low power, single supply, triple video amplifier. Each of the three amplifiers has 30 mA of output current, and is optimized for driving one back terminated video load (150 Ω) each. Each amplifier is a current feedback amp-lifier and features gain flatness of 0.1 dB to 60 MHz while offering differential gain and phase error of 0.02% and 0.06° This makes the AD8013 ideal for broadcast and professional video electronics.

The AD8013 offers low power of 4 mA per amplifier max and runs on a single +5 V to +13 V power supply. The outputs of each amplifier swing to within one volt of either supply rail to easily accommodate video signals. The AD8013 is unique among current feedback op amps by virtue of its large capacitive load drive. Each op amp is capable of driving large capacitive loads while still achieving rapid settling time. For instance it can settle in 18 ns driving a resistive load, and achieves 40 ns (0.1%) settling while driving 200 pF.

The outstanding bandwidth of 150 MHz along with 1000 V/µs of slew rate make the AD8013 useful in many general purpose high speed applications where a single +5 V or dual power supplies up to ±6.5 V are required. Furthermore the AD8013's high speed disable function can be used to power down the amplifier or to put the output in a high impedance state. This can then be used in video multiplexing applications. The AD8013 is available in the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
