ADA4932-2:  Low Power Differential ADC Driver

Product Details

The ADA4932 family is the next generation AD8132 with higher performance, and lower noise and power consumption. It is an ideal choice for driving high performance ADCs as a single-ended-to-differential or differential-to-differential amplifier. The output common-mode voltage is user adjustable by means of an internal common-mode feedback loop, allowing the ADA4932 family output to match the input of the ADC. The internal feedback loop also provides exceptional output balance as well as suppression of even-order harmonic distortion products.

With the ADA4932 family, differential gain configurations are easily realized with a simple external four-resistor feedback network that determines the closed-loop gain of the amplifier.

The ADA4932 family is fabricated using the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary silicon-germanium (SiGe) complementary bipolar process, enabling it to achieve low levels of distortion and noise at low power consumption. The low offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4932 family make it well suited for a wide variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications.

The ADA4932-1 is available in a 16-lead LFCSP and the ADA4932-2 is available in a 24-lead LFCSP. The pinout has been optimized to facilitate PCB layout and minimize distortion. The ADA4932 family is specified to operate over the −40°C to +105°C temperature range; both operate on supplies between +3 V and ±5 V.
