Low Power Selectable Gain Differential ADC Driver, G = 1, 2, 3
Differential gain configurations of 1, 2, and 3 are easily realized with internal feedback networks that are connected externally to set the closed-loop gain of the amplifier.
The ADA4950-1/ADA4950-2 are fabricated using the Analog Devices, Inc., proprietary silicon-germanium (SiGe) complementary bipolar process, enabling them to achieve low levels of distortion and noise at low power consumption. The low offset and excellent dynamic performance of the ADA4950-x make it well suited for a wide variety of data acquisition and signal processing applications.
The ADA4950-x is available in a Pb-free, 3 mm × 3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP (ADA4950-1, single) or a Pb-free 4 mm × 4 mm, 24-lead LFCSP (ADA4950-2, dual). The pinout has been optimized to facilitate PCB layout and minimize distortion. The ADA4950-1/ADA4950-2 are specified to operate over the -40°C to +105°C temperature range; both operate on supplies from +3 V to ±5 V.Applications
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
These evaluation boards are designed to help users evaluate the ADA4950-1. The evaluation board is a BARE BOARD. There are no components or amplifiers soldered to the board. These parts must be obtained separately from the table below or on the product page. Free samples may also be requested. The unpopulated board enables users to quickly customize and prototype a variety of op amp circuits, which minimizes risk and reduces time to market.
The User Guide contains all the required documentation to build the board, including schematics, assembly drawing, and Bill of Materials.
