The AD625 is a precision instrumentation amplifier specifically designed to fulfill two major areas of application: 1) Circuits requiring nonstandard gains (i.e., gains not easily achievable with devices such as the AD524 and AD624). 2) Circuits requiring a low cost, precision software programmable gain amplifier.
For low noise, high CMRR, and low drift the AD625JN is the most cost effective instrumentation amplifier solution available. An additional three resistors allow the user to set any gain from 1 to 10,000. The error contribution of the AD625JN is less than 0.05% gain error and under 5 ppm/°C gain TC; performance limitations are primarily determined by the external resistors. Common-mode rejection is independent of the feedback resistor matching.
A software programmable gain amplifier (SPGA) can be configured with the addition of a CMOS multiplexer (or other switch network), and a suitable resistor network. Because the ON resistance of the switches is removed from the signal path, an AD625 based SPGA will deliver 12-bit precision, and can be programmed for any set of gains between 1 and 10,000, with completely user selected gain steps.
For the highest precision the AD625C offers an input offset voltage drift of less than 0.25 µV/°C, output offset drift below 15 µV/°C, and a maximum nonlinearity of 0.001% at G = 1. All grades exhibit excellent ac performance; a 25 MHz gain bandwidth product, 5 V/µs slew rate and 15 µs settling time.
The AD625 is available in three accuracy grades (A, B, C) for industrial (-40°C to +85°C) temperature range, two grades (J, K) for commercial (0°C to +70°C) temperature range, and one (S) grade rated over the extended (-55°C to +125°C) temperature range.

Tools & Simulations
These tools will help estimate error contributions in your instrumentation amplifier circuit. It uses input parameters such as temperature, gain, voltage input, and source impedance to determine the errors that can contribute to your overall design.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
