The AD8137 is a low cost differential driver with a rail-to-rail output that is ideal for driving ADCs in systems that are sensitive to power and cost. The AD8137 is easy to apply, and its internal common-mode feedback architecture allows its output common-mode voltage to be controlled by the voltage applied to one pin. The internal feedback loop also provides inherently balanced outputs as well as suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products. Fully differential and single-ended-to-differential gain configurations are easily realized by the AD8137. External feedback networks consisting of four resistors determine the closed-loop gain of the amplifier. The power-down feature is beneficial in critical low power applications.
The AD8137 is manufactured on Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary second-generation XFCB process, enabling it to achieve high levels of performance with very low power consumption.
The AD8137 is available in the small 8-lead SOIC package and 3 mm × 3 mm LFCSP package. It is rated to operate over the extended industrial temperature range of −40°C to +125°C.APPLICATIONS
Analog Devices introduces the next generation of Differential Amplifiers, these new amplifiers offer higher performance and lower power consumption than previous devices. Also new in this category, is each of these devices are offered as dual amplifiers, which simplifies designs and reduces board area.
